The Jets handled their business in a 31-10 romp over Cleveland in Week 1 betting. However, they run into a Colts team that was embarrassed 27-14 in Buffalo and they won't take their foot off the gas.

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open:
-7 +102 at Pinnacle
The line opened at -7 for the Colts and hasn't moved at all since. The NFL odds probably won't move much. Barring injury to the Colts, if anything the line will move more their way as they'll be angry after what happened in Week 1. Not to mention, the Colts are very good at home, particularly Andrew Luck.

Injuries
Running back Chris Ivory was limited in practice for the Jets on Thursday because of his groin, so keep an eye on that, while cornerbacks Antonio Cromartie (knee) and Darrin Walls (hamstring) were also limited. The Jets actually have a pair of solid receivers in Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, however, Ryan Fitzpatrick is still their quarterback. Fitzpatrick did throw a pair of touchdowns against the Browns, who have a decent defense, but can he do it again?

However, the Colts are waiting on T.Y. Hilton to see if he can practice on a bad knee, which would let the Jets off the hook. New York would put Darrelle Revis on Hilton anyway, but losing Hilton is still a big loss for the Colts' passing game. Also, cornerback Darius Butler has a hip injury as he was filling in for Greg Toler, who has a neck injury and he probably won't be back on Sunday, either.

 

Trends
The Jets are an excellent 5-1 ATS in their last six games, even though they're 3-3 SU. On the road, the Jets are 4-7-2 ATS in their last 13, while the Colts are 10-2-1 ATS in their last 13 at home. In their last 10 overall, the Colts are 7-3 SU and 5-4-1 ATS.

New York actually has the upper hand in this series, although they haven't played the Colts since 2012. In their last 10 meetings, the Jets are 6-4 SU and 7-3 ATS. When they go to Indianapolis, the Jets still aren't that bad as they're 4-6 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 trips there since 1996.
