The Weekly Accumulator: Jets to take bragging rights in NFL derby

| 23.12.2011

One of the best presents available awaits fans on one side of New York, as the derby at the MetLife Stadium is the standout NFL clash on Christmas Eve.

The Jets have home advantage and a point to prove following their heavy loss against the Philadelphia Eagles in the latest encounter.

Meanwhile, the visiting Giants approach the showdown on the back of five defeats in six games, meaning that the Jets look worthy favourites.

A Jets victory is just one prediction of our NFL accumulator based on the fixtures taking place on Christmas Eve, with our six winners paying a combined 25/1 if they all triumph.

Elsewhere, the Baltimore Ravens are the big bankers as they look to extend their perfect home record to eight victories against the Cleveland Browns.

As good as Baltimore are at home, the Jacksonville Jaguars are almost as bad on the road and this dire record can continue at the Tennessee Titans, especially if the Titans can keep running back Maurice Jones-Drew quiet.

Another form mismatch should ensure the Denver Broncos hand an eighth straight defeat to the Buffalo Bills.

In terms of upsets, the Seattle Seahawks are enjoying a three-game winning streak and host the San Francisco 49ers, while the Arizona Cardinals are fairly evenly matched with the Cincinnati Bengals and look the value bet from all of the Christmas Eve fixtures.

The Cardinals are attempting to win five games in succession for the first time in 34 years, while the Bengals have suffered some heavy defeats of late and were not overly convincing in narrowly beating the whipping boys of the St Louis Rams last time.
