The NY Jets are set to take on the Green Bay Packers this Saturday in their second preseason game of the summer. It'll be a standard preseason affair, albeit with a heartfelt reunion.
Jets head coach Robert Saleh and Packers head coach Matt LaFleur first met at Central Michigan nearly two decades ago during the early stages of each of their coaching careers.
Now, the two best friends will square off as head coaches of their respective NFL franchises. LaFleur will also meet his brother, Mike, who is the current offensive coordinator of the Jets.
Other things to watch will be how Zach Wilson fares against a much better Packers defense, how the Jets defense will perform against what will likely be the Jordan Love show, and various position battles.
Let's take a look at some important information about Saturday's game.
NY Jets vs. Packers odds for preseason Week 2
According to WynnBet, the Jets are 2.5-point favorites this weekend against the Packers. While that might surprise some, it's important to remember that it's the preseason and Green Bay will be resting many of its starters, including Aaron Rodgers.
The Jets have a -145 moneyline while the Packers' moneyline is +125. For those unfamiliar with betting odds, this means that you'd have to bet $145 on the Jets to win to earn an additional $100 ($245 payout) while, if you bet $100 on the Packers to win, you'd earn an additional $125 ($225 payout).
NY Jets injury report vs. Packers today
The Jets will be without a few players this Saturday. The team has already stated that the likes of Quinnen Williams, Elijah Moore, and Alijah Vera-Tucker won't play versus the Packers.
Others such as Ryan Griffin, Kyle Phillips, and Ronald Blair are dealing with injuries and their statuses are up in the air for this weekend.
NY Jets vs. Packers prediction for preseason Week 2
This is the preseason we're talking about, so predictions are always a tricky thing. But, after a strong performance in the first week of the preseason, lets' go with the Jets this time.
Mike White played well with the second-team offense and, if he could find that success again, it's easy to see the Jets coming out on top. The same goes for the Jets' pass rush which dominated last Saturday.
Green Bay looked sluggish in their 26-7 loss to the Houston Texans last week. Give the Jets the slight edge in this preseason prediction.
