If the Colts hope to make a run for it in the AFC South they can ill afford to drop this game. Here’s a mini-betting preview complete with SU, ATS and Total picks.

  

Indianapolis Colts vs N.Y. Jets

 

Point Spread Value

Given how godawful the Jets are this season, it’s no surprise the public has bet them down in spread betting markets. Bookies rolled out a PK line for this game but within mere minutes of opening the Jets dipped into underdog territory. On one hand, the Colts are hardly much better this season as they are under .500. However, the 5-6-0 SU Colts are 5-5-1 ATS with just a -2.8 losing margin and a -0.9 differential versus the spread. Compare that to the Jets, who are 3-8-0 SU and 4-7-0 ATS with a 6.8 losing margin on average and -3.6 differential versus the spread.

The Survivor

All signs point to Andrew Luck suiting up for this game, but, at the time of writing, that’s yet to be confirmed by the Colts organisation. To all intents and purposes, this is a pivotal game for the Colts to win. With the Titans on a bye and the Texans on a collision course with a rejuvenated Green Bay, this is a prime opportunity for Chuck Pagano’s side to make a run for the AFC South. As it is, the Colts are 5-6-0 SU and 2-3-0 SU on the road. The Colts have been a bit of a hit and miss – one week they lose at home to the Chiefs another they win at Lambeau. If they can only find some sort of consistency, they would have a shot in a winnable division. Fortunately, the Jets are proving a laughing stock in the NFL and, as it were, they barely strike a convincing pose. This is a game for the Colts to sneak into the win column.

Game Total

The bookies roll out a rather generous total for this game which has Andrew Luck written all over it. Let’s face it, the Jets offense has been wholly inadequate this season with an average of 17.8 points per game. In recent weeks, that average has dropped dramatically to just over 10 points per game. Yikes. To be fair, Luck can run up the total singlehandedly. Considering he’s coming off a concussion and assuming he plays he might not be 100%. Then there is the fact that he might not have to go all out to put the final nail in the Jets’ coffin. As such, we’re shading the UNDER for week 13 NFL picks.
