The National Football League is heading into Week 2 and we will cover the game between the New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers. So far, both teams’ performance has been what would be best described as a qualified success. Admittedly, the teams have only had one game each. The Jets lost in their opening game to a devastating 10-24 in the final score, but so have the 49ers. However, the 49ers finished 20-24, a close one.
Both teams could have played better, and we are sure that if they manage to calibrate their game a little, they will be back. Besides, that was just one game. The good news is that we have been able to collect some valuable information and make our predictions about Week 2, starting with the Jets vs 49ers.

49ers Betting Preview
San Francisco is one of the teams that you would like to bet as the team went 8-6 against the spread last year. Clearly, they know how to secure a win when the sportsbooks back them. However, they ended up with 1-4 ATS in the 19/20 season making for a rather poor showing.
They have been able to topple the point total in 50% of the cases, though, which sounds reassuring. Overall, Kyle Shanahan’s players have been putting out some 29.9 points on average per game so far.
That puts them comfortably ahead of the Jets who are only averaging 22.4 points based on information from last season. Historically, the 49ers have been the stronger team as well, establishing a handy advantage over the competition.
Can the Jets Handle the Favorites?
In the other corner of the field we have the New York Jets. They have been able to go over the point total in seven out of 14 occasions in 2019. The team posted 7-7 overall score against the spread and they have managed to put around 22.4 points on average.
Meanwhile, the team needs to work with the players it has. Breshad Perriman lost a bit of speed over the season, making a valuable player a little easier to tackle if you are the enemy.
Slot receiver Jamison Crowder and Chris Herndon have been picking up the slack, though, and aiding Perriman in controlling the middle. The Jets have also had to address the lack of C.J. Mosley who decided to withdraw from the season as he cited COVID-19 concerns as the reason why.
Coach Adam Gase wasn’t too excited about the news but he has respected his player’s opinion and will now do his best to configure the team in a way that brings it another win.
However, since we have to pick a side, we would definitely recommend going with San Francisco 49ers on the Moneyline here. It’s not much in the way of value betting opportunity, but you may also try betting on the New York Jets covering the spread at +7 ½ (-120).
