How the experts are seeing Jets vs. Seahawks in Week 17

A game that just about amounts to an elimination game for both the New York Jets and Seattle Seahawks is quietly one of the more intriguing matchups of the penultimate week of the NFL regular season. The Jets are favored on the road, but do the experts at NFL Pick Watch feel the same way?

Not so much. It’s actually close to 50/50 in fact, which this game feels like at this point, a coin flip. 44% of the experts at the site are taking the Jets to keep their season alive, while 56% believe the Seahawks will officially eliminate the Jets.

It’s not quite the closest margin among all the matchup. That belongs to the 55/45 split between the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills on Monday night. The largest gap is a near-unanimous vote (99%) for the Kansas City Chiefs against the Denver Broncos.

41% of the votes are taking the Jets to cover a 1.5-point spread.

By the way, 66% of the picks are favoring the New England Patriots over the Miami Dolphins, a result the Jets hope is the reverse. A Patriots loss Sunday means the Jets just need to win their last two games to make the playoffs. They would still make the playoffs if they win their last two and the Patriots lose to the Bills in Week 18.
