Struggling Patriots open as huge betting favorites vs. winless Jets originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
The Patriots are riding their first four-game losing streak since 2002, but oddsmakers expect New England to get back in the win column in Week 9.
The Pats showed some improvement in their Week 8 game against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, but quarterback Cam Newton's fumble in the final minute of the fourth quarter thwarted the team's comeback attempt in a 24-21 loss.
Next up for the Patriots are the winless New York Jets on "Monday Night Football".

Here are the latest betting lines for this Week 9 matchup -- Provided by our partner PointsBet.
The Patriots are just 3-4 against the spread (ATS) this season, but there are plenty of reasons to back them versus the Jets. For starters, New England has not lost to New York since 2015 -- a streak of eight consecutive Patriots wins. The Patriots also are 4-1 ATS against the Jets in their last five meetings.
The Jets are 0-8 and all of their losses have come by seven or more points. New York's 12.9 points scored per game is by far the lowest in the league.
The Patriots are no longer a genuine contender in the AFC, but their dominance over the Jets isn't going to end this week. New York is a historically bad team with a very real chance of going 0-16.
