New York Jets vs Atlanta Falcons Prediction, Pick, Odds: Can Marcus Mariota, Falcons Turn Things Around?

Monday Night Football will be back in action tonight for a battle between the Atlanta Falcons vs. the New York Jets. I understand this is the pre-season, but it is still Monday Night Football, and I will not complain. We are less than three weeks away from the NFL season but right now, all we can do is bet on the pre-season. I found a winner for us tonight. Let's get into my prediction, pick, and odds for the Falcons vs Jets game.

New York Jets vs Atlanta Falcons Prediction

These are two franchises looking to turn things around it. It has been a struggle for these teams the last few seasons, and now they will look to rebuild. The Falcons moved on from Matt Ryan, the future hall of fame quarterback, in the offseason sending him to the Indianapolis Colts. Marcus Mariota will likely be the starter for the Falcons this season. Atlanta is expected to be one of the worst teams in all of the football coming into the year. These pre-season games are meaningful to them as they have a lot of positions up for debate. The young players playing tonight will be fighting for a job and roster position.

The Jets have handed the keys to second-year gunslinger Zach Wilson. Wilson showed his potential last year but struggled at times. A lot of people are expecting a big year out of Wilson. He had limited weapons around him last year and a subpar offensive line. He suffered an injury in the first game of the pre-season against the Eagles, so we will not see him in action for the rest of the preseason. 

I am backing the Falcons on the moneyline tonight. I doubt Joe Flacco will play much for the Jets, and that means that they will be playing the majority of this game with their third and fourth-string QBs. Atlanta should have the better players in action tonight, which is a huge reason I like them to pull off this win tonight. Let’s cash in on the Falcons tonight!
