New York Jets vs San Diego Chargers Betting Odds
Today the New York Jets take on the San Diego Chargers amidst controversy over the Jets choice of quarter back.
In the end Rex Ryan has named third-string quarterback Greg McElroy to lead on Sunday, a choice which many believe gives the team best chance of victory.
Ryan made the decision after Sanchez had a disastrous four-interception game last Monday night which eliminated the team’s hopes of reaching the playoffs.
The bookmakers seem to approve of Ryan’s choice; the Jets are favourite to win with odds of 10/13 while the Chargers have odds of 23/18.
Nonetheless, the Jets have been a mess over the past year, frequently in the press because of various issues and it is essential that they get themselves sorted out for next year. As it is, for this year the team’s playoff hopes are dead, and it remains to be seen if Ryan’s choice of McElroy will pay off.
On the other hand, the Chargers are in a similar position. The team has had problems of its own to deal with, Norv Turner is basically out and Philip Rivers is being questioned as the franchise quarterback.
