The Pats are also 6-1-1 against the spread in their last eight games in Week 7 and 22-8-1 ATS in their last 31 games in October. On the other side, the Jets are 2-5 against the number in their last seven games versus AFC opponents, 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a double-digit loss at home, and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games versus a team with a winning record.
