The NY Jets will travel to Lambeau Field to take on a Green Bay Packers team fresh off a disappointing loss to the New York Giants in Week 5. The Packers are out for revenge while the Jets are simply trying to prove themselves.
Gang Green has overachieved thus far in 2022 as the team enters Week 6 with a 3-2 record, their best start in years. As for the Packers, their 3-2 record has to be seen as a disappointment with losses to both the Giants and Minnesota Vikings so far.
This Packers team is talented, but they've proven to be vulnerable. Following a blowout win over the Miami Dolphins a week ago, the Jets will look to keep the good times rolling in a tough road environment this week.
Let's take a look at some of the best bets you could make for this week's cross-conference showdown. All odds are courtesy of FanDuel.

Best NY Jets Bets Week 6
NY Jets cover the +7.5 spread (-115)
A 7.5-point spread feels hefty given the state of these two teams at the moment. The Jets are coming off a 40-17 blowout victory over a good Dolphins team (albeit with injuries) while the Packers fell short against the Giants last week.
Yes the Packers are the more talented team on paper and they're home, but asking them to cover a 7.5-point spread is a lot. I'd be mildly surprised if Green Bay won this game by multiple scores.
They very well may pull out a victory in the end, after all, they have their Aaron Rodgers trump card. But the Jets should keep this close, especially if they continue to dominate fourth quarters in the way that they have.
The Jets cover the spread this week, even if they don't ultimately win.
Romeo Doubs UNDER 49.5 receiving yards (-114)
Romeo Doubs enters Week 6 as the second-leading receiver in Green Bay behind only Randall Cobb. The fourth-round rookie has flashed thus far and actually leads the Packers in both targets and receptions.
He'll face arguably his toughest task of the season this week, however, against the Jets' daunting cornerback duo of D.J. Reed and Sauce Gardner.
Reed and Gardner have statistically been the best cornerback duo in the NFL through five weeks, and facing a Packers passing attack that has looked less-than-stellar, it's hard to have faith in any Green Bay receiver this week.
Doubs has topped 49.5 receiving yards in just one game this season, and even without Christian Watson, the safe bet here is to assume he falls short. Smash the under.
Breece Hall anytime touchdown scorer (+170)
Breece Hall officially arrived on the NFL scene last week. While the rookie running back had his moments prior to Week 5, it was against the Dolphins that he truly broke out and showed the NFL world what he was capable of.
Hall finished with 97 rushing yards and 100 receiving yards, helping lead the Jets to their 40-point offensive explosion. The rookie second-round pick ranks 10th in the NFL in scrimmage yards and nearly added two more scores to the stat sheet last week.
Although Hall did eventually find the end zone, he was twice stopped within the one-yard line, only to see Michael Carter punch it in instead. Still, Hall has a touchdown in each of his last two games and probably should've had at least one more last week.
If the Jets are going to find success on offense, it's likely going to be through Hall. I think the touchdown streak continues this week.
