N.Y. Jets vs Cleveland Browns
 

Point Spread Value

Geno Smith’s misfortune is Ryan Fitzpatrick’s gain. Eight passes into last week’s 24-16 win over the Ravens, Smith went down with a season-ending injury. The kid is cursed. By contrast, Fitzpatrick is the luckiest guy ever. To get a second chance so soon after being benched, well no words can quite convey such a fortuitous turn of events. Happily, Fitz did the job and the Jets get their first win since week 2’s win over the Bills. Hashtag mad beard. Apparently, the Beard is playing mad now. Well, let’s see about that. It’s worth pointing out that as far as covering the spread the Jets and Browns are on par amongst the worst in the NFL right now with a 2-5 ATS record.

The Survivor

If Ryan Fitzpatrick can’t beat the Cleveland Browns he should just follow Arian Foster into early retirement. Nuff said.

Game Total

It’s impossible to tell what to expect from the Jets now that they’re back to Ryan Fitzpatrick. Yes, they defeated the Ravens last week 27-16 to cash on the UNDER for the fourth time this season. Overall, they are 3-4-0 in OVER/UNDER betting but, to be fair, the three OVERs are not a credit to their offense. Rather the defense giving up points and, oh, the costly interceptions by The Beard. As far as the Browns are concerned, they’re 5-2-0 in OVER/UNDER betting. The problem is they’re all over the map and the lack of a quarterback (they're down to their sixth quarterback or something ridiculous) is just insane.
