The NY Jets will travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills in Week 14 as they look to secure a bounce-back victory following their close loss to the Minnesota Vikings a week ago.

The Jets emerged victorious in their first meeting with the Bills a few weeks back, but these are two very different teams now. Mike White is starting for the Jets in this game while the Bills have returned key defenders such as Tre'Davious White and Matt Milano.

The stakes couldn't be much higher with both the Jets and Bills in the midst of a playoff race. While Buffalo is looking to secure the AFC East crown and the No. 1 seed in the conference, the Jets are mostly looking to hold on to a playoff spot.

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

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.

Best NY Jets Bets Week 14

NY Jets +10 spread (-110)

It feels a little disrespectful to have the Jets as 10-point underdogs on the road this week. This is a Jets team that narrowly lost to a 10-win Vikings team a week ago, and a Jets team that defeated the Bills a month ago with Zach Wilson starting at QB.

Despite this, the Jets are currently the second-biggest underdogs in the NFL this week. Vegas believes the Denver Broncos have a better chance of beating the Kansas City Chiefs than the Jets do the Bills.

Homefield advantage matters, but that's still pretty ridiculous. The Jets' defense is talented enough to keep this game close even if the offense sputters a bit.

You don't have to bet the Jets' moneyline, but it's fair to be somewhat confident in the Jets covering the spread this week.

Garrett Wilson OVER 62.5 receiving yards (-114)

Garrett Wilson has seen his production increase significantly since Mike White took over as the team's starting quarterback. In fact, no wide receiver in the NFL has been more productive than Wilson over the last two weeks.

Which is why it's a little surprising to see his prop for receiving yards set at a meager 62.5 yards this week. The oddsmakers don't seem to trust Wilson's consistency against a good Bills defense, but this prop still feels low.

The Bills just saw Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown go for nine catches and 122 yards two weeks ago. Even with Tre'Davious White back, they're hardly unbeatable, especially with their safety injuries.

Trust the Mike White/Garrett Wilson chemistry and bet on the over this week.

Josh Allen OVER 41.5 rushing yards (-114)

Josh Allen wasn't at his best when these two teams met for the first time a few weeks ago, but he still managed to run for 86 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

With Allen nursing his elbow injury, it's fair to expect the Bills to utilize his legs a bit more. Allen has rushed for 75 or more yards in three of his last five games and he has a prime opportunity to add to his totals this week.

This Jets' defense remains one of the best in the NFL, but they've struggled mightily with missed tackles in recent weeks, especially as it pertains to the team's linebackers and safeties.

That doesn't bode well for their chances of limiting Allen on the ground on Sunday. Definitely bet the over here.
