Video Transcript

MINTY BETS: This Thursday night, we've got the New York Jets hosting the Denver Broncos. The Broncos are a road favorite of 1 point right now, and the total is set at a low, low 39 and 1/2. Jared, who's your pick?

JARED QUAY: I'm excited for his game. Get out of here. This is fireworks. This is who's gonna get Trevor Lawrence next year. That's what we're watching here. [LAUGHS]

Thursday night is on the decline. Last week, it turned out to be a good game, but it wasn't a fun one to watch. This one shouldn't be either. Both teams are really dealing with injuries real bad, and it doesn't look good.

So I'm not picking either one of them. I'm taking the under here. I think it's the first time primetime for the Jets, and they're not gonna want to show their quarterback throwing five interceptions. I think he dumps it to the flats, screens, two-yard runs, punt it.

I think this game-- 39 and 1/2. The half point's why I like it. In this game, both teams aren't scoring 20, and so therefore I'm gonna go under here and just hope for bad football. I'm gonna hope for a 9 to 16 game.

MINTY BETS: Ew, gross. OK, yeah, I also like the under, Jared. And we didn't talk about this, so I'm actually surprised you chose the under. I don't think any of these offenses can produce that many points. Also, Denver's traveling from west to east, and it's just gonna be a mess. I really can't choose.

So I guess I like the under here. There's just no real reason. Maybe I would wait till kickoff. Maybe it goes back up to 40, even 41 if we're lucky. So I'll wait to bet it before kickoff, but I like the under here as well. Matt, how about you?

MATT GOTHARD: I am so not excited for this game. And a really smart person out there says you should always bet the numbers. And if there's one trend that you should look at when going to bet this game, it's that I am 0 and 3 so far on Thursday Night Football. And I'm leaning the Jets, so you probably want to take the Broncos.

In this game when I look at it, I don't think there's gonna be a lot of scoring in this game. I don't think there's a good play in this game. So if you don't actually have a good feeling on this and you're not a fan of either team, and you still feel like you need to bet on it, 1-800-GAMBLER is probably a place you need to find yourself. So I guess I'm taking the Jets. I guess I'm taking the Jets.

JARED QUAY: Can we advise people to be like, you know what, just chill this one out. Just watch and see what happens.

MATT GOTHARD: There's a lot of other stuff to watch. There's a lot of other stuff to watch.
