The NY Jets will travel out west in Week 7 as their road trip continues, this time against the Denver Broncos. This is a Broncos team that limps into this game having lost three straight games, including their last two in overtime.

On top of that, they'll be without starting quarterback Russell Wilson who is out with a hamstring injury. In will step former undrafted free agent Brett Rypien to make his second career start, both of which will have come against the Jets.

The Jets, on the other hand, will look to keep the good times rolling against a hobbled Broncos team. Gang Green has won three consecutive games with their last two coming in blowout fashion.

Let's take a look at three of the best bets to make for this AFC clash. All odds are courtesy of FanDuel.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.

Best NY Jets Bets Week 7

NY Jets vs. Denver Broncos UNDER 36.5 points (-110)

It's hard to imagine this game being high-scoring which is why the over/under point total is set as low as it is. Still, it feels likely that we don't even see 37 points in this one.

The Broncos' defense might be the best in the NFL while their offense looks like one of the worst, and that was with Russell Wilson. The Jets, despite their winning ways, haven't exactly been lighting up the score sheet on offense outside of rookie running back Breece Hall.

This feels like a first-to-20-points-wins type of situation. It's dangerous to bet the under on such a low point total, but it's still probably your best bet. This is going to be a slugfest.

Breece Hall anytime touchdown scorer (+150)

There won't be a lot of touchdowns in this game, but if you're betting on any player to find the end zone, your money should be on Breece Hall. The rookie running back has come into his own over the last few weeks and has scored in each of his last three games.

The Jets are undefeated when Hall scores a touchdown this season and they'll likely look to feed him in what should be a low-scoring game on Sunday. There should be ample opportunities for him to find paydirt in Week 7.

It's risky to bet on an anytime touchdown scorer in an expected low-scoring contest, but Hall's recent production provides a source of optimism.

Zach Wilson UNDER 180.5 passing yards (-113)

The Jets haven't asked Zach Wilson to do much over the team's three-game winning streak. Aside from the fourth quarter against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 4, Wilson has essentially played the role of game manager.

Expect that to continue this Sunday against a Broncos defense that leads the NFL in the fewest yards per attempt and passing touchdowns scored. The Jets will try to win this game on the ground much as they have the past two weeks.

Next. NY Jets WR Elijah Moore's trade request is both bizarre and misguided. dark

Wilson threw for just 110 yards in Week 6 and barely eclipsed 200 yards despite a 40-point outing in Week 5. This should be the safest bet of the week — smash the under here.
