PICK SIXTY SPORTS WEEKLY TIP:
The New York Jets stumbled into a Week 1 win against Tampa Bay and then four days later, hung around to get the cover at New England. After beating Buffalo in Week 3 it’s fair to say New York (2-1 SU, 3-0 ATS) is one of the surprise teams of 2013. The Jets have a Monday game vs. the Falcons on-deck and small road dogs in this spot have produced 8 overs and 4 unders the past five seasons.
Non-divisional road teams in this range who are riding high off a win and gearing up for a big primetime contest next week are 40-22-1 O/U (65-percent) when the total is 36 points or greater:
The home team is not overlooking the Jets and the line is tight enough that both teams see this as a legitimate chance to get a win. The Titans (2-1 SU, 2-0-1 ATS) have held two of three opponents to fewer than 20 points this year but in 2012 they accomplished that feat just three times. With a few books still offering 39.5 we’re still getting fair value on this total and as each team scraps for its third ‘W’ look at backing the Jets and Titans OVER 39.5 points.
