NFL Odds: Patriots 9-Point Favorites Over Jets In Divisional Round Playoffs

When the New England Patriots host the New York Jets Sunday in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs, they'll be doing so as nine-point favorites, according to Bodog.com. 5Dimes.com has the Pats giving eight points to their AFC East rivals. 

The two teams met twice during the regular season, splitting the series. New York took the first game, in Week 2, rallying to win at home against New England, 28-14. In that game, Mark Sanchez out-dueled Tom Brady, going 21 for 30 with 220 yards and three touchdowns (Brady managed a pair of TDs but also had a couple interceptions). 

In the Week 13 rematch the Patriots had their revenge, routing the Jets, 45-3, in a Monday night game. This time around it was Brady getting the best of Sanchez, completing 21 passes with four touchdowns and 326 yards; Sanchez has three picks in the loss. 

The Patriots and Jets meet Sunday at 4:30 p.m. EST.
