NFL FREE PICK: Take the over. According to latest NFL trends,
The over is 4-0 in the Falcons’ last four home games and 5-1 in their last six games overall. The over is also 4-2 in their last five games following an ATS loss and 11-5-1 in their last 17 games following a straight up loss. On the other side, the over is 5-1 in the Jets’ last six games in Week 5 and 9-4 in their last 13 games in October.
The Falcons have struggled inside the red zone this season but it’s only a matter of time before they iron out their issues. They have too much offensive firepower with Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez to consistently fail to score touchdowns inside the 20. On the other side, Atlanta is extremely banged up on defense and is down to its third and even fourth stringers at certain positions. Thus, look for Geno Smith and the Jets to move the ball plenty tonight and get on the scoreboard.
