Pick via FOX Sports Betting Analyst Jason McIntyre:

You can’t bet this game until you know the status of Justin Fields, the exciting Bears QB who injured his non-throwing shoulder late in the game against the Falcons. 

Without Fields, the starter will be Trevor Siemian, a journeyman who has started four games (all last year for the Saints) in the last five years. The Jets have already faced backup QBs in wins over Pittsburgh, Miami and Denver

The Bears defense has given up 27 or more points in four straight games, which means even Zach Wilson should be able to have some success. As debilitating as the Jets’ loss to New England was, they clearly have a top five defense in the league, and the movement on the line (from Jets -3.5 to -5.5; total down from 48 to 41.5) suggests Fields isn’t playing. The Jets defense will dominate this game if Fields does not play. 

If he does play, the Over would be my play. With Fields out, the pick is Jets -4.5. 

PICK: Jets (-4.5 at FOX Bet) to win by more than 4.5 points
