Indianapolis Colts

Colts LT Anthony Castonzo (hamstring) will play in Week 6 against the Jets. It'll be his first start of the season. Castonzo was active last week but didn't play any snaps. His return is a huge upgrade to Andrew Luck's pass protection.

New York Jets

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Isaiah Crowell (ankle) is expected to play Week 6 against the Colts. ESPN's Rich Cimini reported the same on Friday. Crowell's only practice of the week was a limited session on Friday, but he is healthy enough to go in a good spot against the Colts. Coming off a breakout performance, Crowell is an upside RB2 this week.

NFL Betting Trends

Indianapolis

The Colts are just 2-7 against the spread in their last nine games against AFC opponents.

New York

The Jets are 9-2 against the number in their last 11 home games.

Prediction

The Jets were impressive a week ago against the Broncos but I think that game set up an opportunity to fade New York here. The Broncos were coming off a crushing loss to division rival Kansas City on Monday night, then had to fly cross-country to take on the Jets, who were clearly ready for them. The Colts, meanwhile, are off extra rest having played in New England last week and I see them pulling off the small upset here.
