Why the Jets can cover

New York owns the best backfield duo in the league: Breece Hall and Dalvin Cook. Hall (knee) and Cook (shoulder) are both coming off surgeries, but will suit up in this contest. Hall, an Iowa State product, could be on a pitch count, but has the ability to be effective on his limited touches. As a rookie, Hall had 463 rushing yards, 218 receiving yards, and five total touchdowns in seven games.

Cook joined New York in August after being cut by the Minnesota Vikings earlier in the offseason. The four-time Pro Bowler owns light feet and breakaway speed. Cook can evade defenders and has big-play ability. In 2022, he logged 1,173 yards and eight touchdowns. This was his fourth straight campaign with 1000-plus rushing yards. The backfield also has Michael Carter, a reliable pass-catcher with strong short-area quickness. See which team to pick here.

Why the Bills can cover

Quarterback Josh Allen is one of the most dynamic and electric signal-callers in the game. Allen can make any throw on the field with ease while owning the athleticism to be an effective runner. The two-time Pro Bowler completed 63% of his passes for 4,283 passing yards with 35 passing touchdowns in 2022. He also ran for 762 yards and seven touchdowns. Allen threw for 300-plus yards in six games last year. 

Receiver Stefon Diggs is the clear No. 1 target for Allen. Diggs is a strong route runner and has a knack for creating separation from defenders. The three-time Pro Bowler finished the 2022 season with 108 receptions for 1,429 yards and 11 touchdowns. Diggs has recorded 1,000-plus receiving yards in five straight seasons. In two games against the Jets last year, he had eight grabs for 103 yards. See which team to pick here.
