Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Jets are 2-point favorites to beat the Colts. The total, meanwhile, sits at 45.5 points. As of this writing, 52% of the public betting tickets are on the Jets to cover the point spread.
Eric Ebron (shin, quad, ankle, knee) is questionable for Week 6 against the Jets. Ebron was a full participant in practice Friday but is still listed as questionable due to the numerous injuries still ailing him. The Colts did suspiciously sign TE Mo Alie-Cox from their practice squad, hinting that Ebron could be limited even if active. If he suits up, he's still a strong TE1 given the (lack of) landscape at his position.
New York Jets
Isaiah Crowell (ankle) is questionable for Week 6 against the Colts. He's expected to be a game-time decision. The good news is this an early 1 PM ET kickoff, so we'll know Crowell's status before lineups lock. If Crowell sits, Bilal Powell will become a strong RB2 play with bankable volume.
NFL Betting Trends
The under is 6-1 in the Colts’ last seven road games.
The under is 6-0 in the Jets’ last six games versus a team with a losing record.
The over is 6-2 in the last six meetings between these two teams and is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings in East Rutherford. When these two teams met in 2016, Andrew Luck threw for 278 yards with four touchdowns in a 41-10 rout. The COlts also lead in third-down conversion rate at 50.6 percent and if they can score against an underrated Jets’ defense, we should get enough points from the Jets to help push the score over the total.
