The New York Jets opens the 2022 regular season at home and will host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. These teams haven't faced each other since the 2019 season where the Ravens beat the Jets 42-21 in Baltimore but Sam Darnold was the Jets quarterback then.
At the beginning of the 2021 season the Ravens were considered strong contenders for the playoffs and they had a great start winning 8 of the first 11 games but then their star quarteback Lamar Jackson suffered an injury that ended the season for him and practically for the team as they lost all of the remaining 6 games. Baltimore ended up with a 8-9 record and were 3-5 on the road.
Offensively, the team averaged 22.8 points per game recording 3,961 passing yards and 2,479 rushing yards. This offense is leaded by their star quarterback Lamar Jackson who registered 2,882 passing yds, 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions with a 64.4% in passes completed ranking 17th in the NFL. He also led the team in rushing yards with 767 and he only played 12 games. His best arms are the receivers Rashod Bateman, the TE Mark Andrews and the running back Gus Edwards who will be available until week 4.
Defensively, the team ranked #20 in the NFL allowing an average of 23.1 points per game last season. Marcus Peters who's one of the best cornerbacks in the league was activated and returned to practice.
New York Jets
The Jets had the second worst record in the league last season, 4-13 overall record and 3-6 at home. New York made a whopping three first-round picks, headlined by Ahmad Gardner, the fourth overall selection, WR Garret Wilson who caught 70 passes for 1,058 yards and 12 touchdowns at Ohio State last season, and defensive Jermaine Johnson.
Offensively, the team averaged 18.2 points per game #24 in the NFL and recorded 3,541 passing yards and 1,667 rushing yards last season. The quarterback Zach Wilson is heading in the right direction to start in week 1. He had 2,334 passing yards, 9 td's and 11 interceptions.
Defensively, this team was the worst in the league allowing an average of 29.6 points per game last season. Gardner has the potential to develop into a legitimate No. 1 cornerback who can shut things down. Gardner just had a successful three-year collegiate career at Cincinnati in which he played in 33 games and recorded 68 tackles, 16 passes defended, nine interceptions, and 3.5 sacks.
Baltimore Ravens are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games against NY Jets.
Baltimore Ravens are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games against NY Jets.
Baltimore Ravens are 5-1 ATS in its last 6 during Week 1.
New York Jets are 5-12 ATS in its last 17 as the underdog.
NY Jets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games when playing at home against Baltimore.
The Jets were one of the worst teams last season and the team may have acquired some new talent but it will take time for them to make a difference. Zach Wilson will need to show up at maximum his skills if he doesn't want to be sidelined by Joe Flacco. The Ravens will be too much for them as they have Lamar Jackson back to lead them. The Ravens have also dominated the Jets beating them in 9 of the last 10 head to head games. I took the Ravens when the line opened at -4.5 but I'd still take them to win by a touchdown. Take the Ravens.
PICK: Ravens -6.5 (-118)
