It's no secret I like the Jets to cover against Pittsburgh in Week 4, but there are a few reasons I think they'll win outright as well. Before we get into those, let's first make sure you've utilized your free $1,000 bet from FanDuel Sportsbook for the game.

3 Reasons the Jets Will Upset the Steelers

Mitch Trubisky Stinks

Look, this Steelers offense is going nowhere with the giant anchor that is Trubisky holding it down. Pittsburgh ranks 30th in the NFL with an average of 4.7 yards per play, and Trubisky has yet to throw for more than 207 yards in a game.

The Jets aren't fantastic offensively, but even Joe Flacco has the group humming more than Trubisky has the Steelers. Until Pittsburgh makes the switch to Kenny Pickett, you can fade Trubisky with confidence.

Zach Wilson's Return

Speaking of quarterback changes, Zach Wilson is expected to start this week. The second-year signal caller looked overwhelmed in his debut season, but Wilson is certainly more dynamic than Flacco.

Wilson's mobility makes the Jets' incredible pass-catchers even more dangerous because Wilson can evade the pocket and give them more time to get open. Expect huge games from Garrett Wilson, Elijah Moore, and Corey Davis as the Steelers struggle to contain the former BYU standout.

Running Game

TJ Watt's injury has left Pittsburgh with a poor run defense, as the Steelers rank 28th by allowing 142.7 rushing yards per game. Michael Carter and Breece Hall are a capable backfield, and I think this will be their best performance yet.

Meanwhile, the Steelers' poor offensive line has made life difficult for Najee Harris, not that Trubisky's inability to push the ball downfield helps matters. New York has a big advantage in the running game, giving their chances to win a boost.

If you're looking for a huge payday on the Jets, just be sure to claim your $1,000 free bet from FanDuel Sportsbook before it's too late. New York is going to win, so sign up for FanDuel now to make sure you cash in on the upset.
