NY Jets vs. Ravens Sunday Night Point Spread Preview, Expert Picks, Score Prediction

The Ravens rebounded nicely from their surprising loss at Tennessee by routing the Rams at St. Louis 37-7, while the Jets have issues on both sides of the ball right now, which was evident in a 34-24 loss in Oakland.




The bookmakers are expecting a closer game than we are here, as Baltimore has been installed as a favorite of (-3½) with the total set at 41½.





BETTING ODDS: OPEN: Ravens -3.5 | CURRENT: Ravens -3.5 | O/U: 42


1. Why Baltimore will cover the spread: The Jets were considered Super Bowl contenders this season because of their defense and their offensive line, but both of those units are very shaky right now. The Ravens can take advantage of a Jets’ run defense that is almost in-explicitly allowing 136.7 rushing yards per game on 4.8 yards per carry with possibly the best all-purpose running back in the NFL in Ray Rice, and the ferocious Baltimore front seven on defense could potentially overwhelm a New York offensive line that sorely misses the injured Nick Mangold more than many people expected.

The Jets have become a one-dimensional passing offense for the time being, and those are precisely the types of teams Baltimore feasts upon.



2. Why New York will cover the spread: Mark Sanchez is on his way to a career year, as he has passed for nearly 900 yards in three games while completing 63.1 percent of his passes and averaging a lovely 7.98 yards per pass attempt. With that said, the Jets will only cover this game if they can get their running game going. This was one of the best rushing offenses in the NFL the last two years, but apparently Mangold’s injury has affected the entre run blocking scheme, and thus the Jets are averaging a terrible 82.0 rushing yards per game on just 3.4 yards per carry.



3. Total Talk: Truth be told, we don’t expect the Jets to run well vs. this great Baltimore defense, which is the main reason we like the Ravens to cover this game. We do like the ‘over’ a bit also for a couple of reasons. We think that Sanchez will once again be forced to throw the ball more than the Jets would want, and he is quickly establishing himself as a high-quality NFL quarterback.

Even with the Jets being one-dimensional again, we still think that Sanchez can direct a scoring drive or two, and we also feel that the Baltimore defense is good enough to force some turnovers, actually leading to potentially more points due to shorter fields. When the Ravens have the ball, Rice’s expected success should allow Joe Flacco to also have some success through the air.



4. Betting Trends for the game: The Jets are 10-6 ATS as underdogs and 13-9 ATS on the road since 2009, but they are also 1-5 ATS the last six times they allowed more than 150 rushing yards in their previous game. The Ravens are a sparkling 46-22-1 the last 69 times they’ve been installed home favorites. Also, the ‘over’ is 16-4-1 in the Jets’ last 21 road games.



5. NY Jets-Ravens SNF Prediction: Baltimore 27 – New York Jets 17

Week 4 NFL Upset Picks: Will The Patriots Be The Raiders Next Victim?

We went 1-2 with our outright upset calls in Week 3, but oh what might have been! We correctly called Oakland +170 over the Jets, and we just missed on the other two as the Vikings lost in overtime to the Lions at +165 and the Texans blew a nine-point lead in the fourth quarter at +175.


The final tally was -0.25 units, although our teams did go 2-1 ATS.




Let’s move on to our Week 4 NF Upset Picks…


Pittsburgh Steelers (+4) +190 over Houston Texans

BETTING ODDS: OPEN: Texans -3 | CURRENT: Texans -4 | OVER/UNDER: 45

There are some quarterbacks that you never bet against as underdogs, and Ben Roethlisberger is one of those quarterbacks as he is 14-8 against the spread all time as an underdog including 11-6 ATS as a road dog. Also, this line seems inflated in light of the Steelers’ poor performance on national television on Sunday night, but good teams find a way to win games where they play poorly, which Pittsburgh did while taking a bad Indianapolis team too lightly.

Pittsburgh will come out much more focused here, and we simply feel that they are the better team, meaning that we seriously disagree with this line that says Houston is -1 on a neutral field. The supposedly improved Houston pass defense did not look so improved when it faced a real quarterback in Drew Brees last week, so Big Ben should be fine this week.



Seattle Seahawks (+4½) +190 over Atlanta Falcons

BETTING ODDS: OPEN: Falcons -4 | CURRENT: Falcons -4.5 | OVER/UNDER: 38.5

We predicted before the season started that the Falcons would miss the playoffs completely this season after being the top seed in the NFL last year, and they are one Matt Ryan injury away from being 0-3 right now. They are not a good road team, and their loss at Tampa Bay last Sunday makes them 0-2 both straight up and ATS on the road this season. The worst part about the loss to the Bucs was that the Falcons managed just 30 rushing yards vs. a Tampa Bay defense that had not been good vs. the run in its first two games and the Falcons don’t win when they can’t run.

The Seahawks are by no means a great team at 1-2, but they upset the Arizona Cardinals in their home opener last week and they do have a good rushing defense, allowing only 99.7 rushing yards per game on 3.1 yards per carry.





Oakland Raiders (+4) +180 over New England Patriots

BETTING ODDS: OPEN: Pats -4.5 | CURRENT: Pats -4 | OVER/UNDER: 55

Many people assume the Patriots will come out spitting fire and roll this week after losing to Buffalo, and Tom Brady is 14-7 ATS following a loss since 2003. While Brady should indeed be more focused, that says nothing about the state of these two defenses. There is legitimate concern around the New England defense, as that unit is allowing 26.3 points and 468.7 total yards per game, and has been bad vs. both the run (4.3 yards per carry) and the pass (a dreadful 8.8 yards per attempt). Those that thought New England had a cakewalk to the Super Bowl better think again.

Now the Raiders have trouble stopping the run, but that means little vs. the pass-oriented Pats’ offense, and Oakland’s pass defense is good enough to win this game, allowing only 6.4 yards per attempt while recording 10 sacks, tied for fourth best mark in the NFL.

Potential Week 4 Underdog Picks:

- JAX Jags +7 vs. Saints…..Jags at home with MJD should be able to keep this one close.


- Bengals +3.5 vs. Bills……Everyone loves the Bills right now…great time to fade!


- Denver +12.5 vs. Packers….Why is this line under 2 TD’s…take Denver!




College Football Upset Picks For Week 5: 3-0 ATS Last Week

It was another great week for our CFB upsets in Week 4, as we correctly nailed UCLA at +145 and Southern Miss +130. The only disappointment was just missing on the big one, as Pittsburgh lost late at +230 vs. Notre Dame after leading for much of the game.


The end result was a +1.75 gain for the week, while betting the teams ATS went 3-0.


Let’s now try and keep things rolling with three more upset calls for Week 5:



Kansas State (+3½) +145 over Baylor

BETTING ODDS: OPEN: Baylor -3.5 | CURRENT: Baylor -3.5 | OVER/UNDER: 63.5

The undefeated Wildcats are very live home underdogs here, as after beating up on a couple of cupcakes, they went into Miami last week and upset the Hurricanes 28-24 as 12½ point underdogs. The Kansas State defense is allowing only 3.0 yards per rush and 5.9 yards per pass attempt, making it easily the best defense that the potent Baylor offense has faced this year. Yes, the Bears are averaging 51.3 points and 594.0 yards per game, and quarterback Robert Griffin III has put up video game numbers, completing 70 of his 82 passes with 13 touchdown passes and no interceptions.

However, Baylor faced a very young TCU defense on opening week, then an FCS school and then a dreadful Rice defense, and all three games so far have been at home. They are now stepping up in class and going on the road for the first time, so don’t look for them to come anywhere near posting the 50+ points it’s averaged in this spot.



Hawaii (+4) +145 over Louisiana Tech

BETTING ODDS: OPEN: LA Tech -4 | CURRENT: LA Tech -4 | OVER/UNDER: 58.5

After improving on the road the last couple of years, the Warriors have reverted to their old ways in the early going, as they are 0-2 both straight up and ATS on the mainland compared to 2-0 SU and ATS at home. However, this looks like a great spot to get over the road hump, as Hawaii may be catching an emotionally drained Louisiana Tech team here. In the last two weeks, the Bulldogs lost 35-34 to Houston and then lost in overtime at Mississippi State 26-20 last week as 19½ point underdogs.
The Bulldogs may not have much left here after nearly pulling off a shocker in SEC territory, and as for the physical part of things, the potent Hawaii offense should be able to move at will vs. a Louisiana Tech defense that is surrendering 403.2 total yards per game.





Mississippi (+5) +165 over Fresno State

BETTING ODDS: OPEN: Fresno -3.5 | CURRENT: Fresno -4.5 | OVER/UNDER: 53

It is not too often that you will see an SEC team turn up as an underdog vs. a WAC team, but the Rebels are just 1-3 thus far, and they may be battling Vanderbilt for the worst record in the SEC this season. Still, the Rebels are a step up in class for the Bulldogs after wins over Idaho and North Dakota the last two weeks, and as famous as Fresno State is for its “anytime, anywhere” attitude, the Bulldogs have never beaten an SEC school (0-4) and that includes a 55-38 shootout loss to these Rebels in Oxford last season.

Fresno State is still primarily a passing team, averaging a nice 7.9 yards per pass attempt compared to only 3.6 yards per rush, but pass defense (199.0 yards per game, 6.9 yards per pass) has been the best aspect of the entire Mississippi team this year.
