New Orleans Saints +4 at Indianapolis Colts, 1:00PM ET
It was close to vintage Drew Brees last week at the Superdome, as he constantly burned the Falcons in the intermediate game with tight end Ben Watson. Brees should be able to move the ball against the Colts, who are 29th in total defense this season while allowing 401.8 total yards per game. They've also allowed 430.5 total yards per game over the last two weeks alone, generating no turnovers and little to no pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Even if Andrew Luck is on, Brees and Co. should hang. Take the Saints +4.
New York Jets +7.5 at New England Patriots, 1:00PM ET
There should be some skepticism in regards to whether or not Ryan Fitzpatrick can maintain his efficient play, but there's no questioning how good the Jets' running game and defense is. Chris Ivory will provide New England with a stiff test and thanks to cornerback Darrelle Revis, the Jets can take half the field away from Tom Brady. The Patriots will still get their yards and thus the Jets can't settle for field goals today, but there's major value in taking a heavy dog that can run and play good D. Take the points. Take the Jets +7.5.
Dallas Cowboys +3 at New York Giants, 4:25PM ET
Matt Cassel takes over for the ineffective Brandon Weeden, who failed to provide production for the Cowboys after Tony Romo went down with an injury in Week 2. Cassel isn't likely to light up the stat sheet but he at least can push the ball downfield, which was something that eluded Weeden. Cassel also had an opportunity to get up to speed during Dallas' bye week, so at least he's not trying to run the offense on limited practice time. As for the Giants, they were sloppy on Monday night and now have a short week of rest to prepare for a divisional rival that is coming off extra rest. The underdog is 9-4 against the spread in the last 13 meetings between these two teams while the Cowboys are 5-1 ATS in their last six road games. Take the Cowboys +3.
