Jets vs. Patriots Free Pick
The marquee game of Week 7 will take place in Foxboro today when the New England Patriots host their bitter rivals the New York Jets at 1:00PM ET.
After the Patriots opened as a 10-point home favorite, the line for this game was bet down to 9.5, then 9, and now it's sitting at 7.5. The total has also dropped, going from 49 down to 47.5 points according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI.
The Jets have been an outstanding bet this year, going 4-1 against the spread and are also 4-1 straight up. The 5-0 Patriots have also been profitable at the betting window, going 3-2 against the number to start the year. New York is 1-0 against the spread on the road this season while New England is 1-1 ATS at home.
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.
