When the NFL schedule was initially released, everyone was salivating at the prospect of betting on the Week 4 odds for the Sunday Night Football matchup, as Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs were set to visit Aaron Rodgers and the New York Jets.
But then... Rodgers got hurt in Week 1 and was replaced by Zach Wilson who, after three games, again reminded us why the Jets felt the need to get a competent starting quarterback in the first place.
The NFL look-ahead lines had this as a close matchup over the summer, but official opening lines for the next SNF matchup see the Jets laying as much as 10 points, as Wilson has proven incapable of creating any semblance of offense and Mahomes is, well, that guy.
Disappointment aside, there is still NFL odds to bet on, so we'll give you the best lines for this contest, as well as the full SNF schedule for the year and NFL player props for the key skill position players!

SNF betting tips
From Jason Logan, Covers Senior Industry Analyst
Considered the marquee matchup on Sunday, being the only true standalone game, sometimes the bright lines can be overwhelming for young players an coaches. Give the benefit of the doubt to veteran coaches and staff/players with experience, who are grounded in their game prep and are less likely to get caught up in the hoopla on Sunday night.
Any NFL Sunday leads to raucous home crowds, but home-field advantage gets an extra boost for the prime-time affair. The home crowd has been tailgating all day, rather than the usual (a.k.a. shorter) partying that comes with a 1 p.m. or 4 p.m. ET kickoff. That ravenous crowd is then released into the stadium, giving the home hospitality a little extra bite.
