Nover: Is it Time to Invest in the Jets?

The New York Mets reached the World Series. So why can't the New York Jets make the Super Bowl?

That idea won't seem so preposterous if the 4-1 Jets were to upset 5-0 New England on the road Sunday.

The Patriots have gone from 9.5-point favorites down to 7.5. If you believe the Jets can win this game consider doing two things: Making a moneyline wager on them where the odds are around plus $3.00, and also taking them on the futures book.


Backup Quarterback Week 7 Props

The Dallas Cowboys will start backup Matt Cassel at quarterback when they take on the New York Giants Sunday, something that has become common place. Cassel will be the third different backup quarterback the Cowboys field against the Giants since Tony Romo became the starter in Week 8 of the 2006 season.

The previous two backups to start in Romo’s place were Brad Johnson and Jon Kitna who combined for a 47 percent completion rate with two touchdowns and two interceptions. The Cowboys lost both of those games.


NFL Week 7 OddsShark Computer Picks

There have been few teams in the NFL sparking debate quite like the Carolina Panthers.

One thing is for certain, the OddsShark Super Computer projects the Panthers to remain undefeated after Week 7 with a 25.8-18.2 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.


SN: NFL Week 7 Betting Trends Analysis

Super Bowl 50 is set for February 7 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. There are concerns.

The concerns are about the grass field at Levi's Stadium, which is home to San Francisco. Not only is the footing slow, but also slippery. Fans have complained, too, about the excessive heat during day games there.


Rivals Clash - Pats vs Jets Week 7 Odds

It’s no surprise to see the New England Patriots at the top of the AFC East, but the New York Jets have raised many eyebrows en route to a 4-1 record through the quarter mark of the 2015 NFL campaign. The Jets will be looking to play the role of David against the Goliath of the NFL, the Pats, in Week 7.

Thanks to the top defense in the NFL, the Jets have been a lights out play at the betting window this season (4-1 ATS). Sunday’s 34-20 victory over the Washington Redskins kept the good times rolling in New York under veteran signal caller Ryan Fitzpatrick.

New England continued its dominance of Indianapolis last weekend and has shown no signs of a Super Bowl hangover this season.  If any team is going to put the Jets’ D to the test it’s the Pats, as the squad has averaged 36.6 points per game this season.

AFC West Showdown - SD vs OAK Odds

If anyone is going to catch the Denver Broncos in the AFC West, they had better start making the uphill battle soon. That sets the stage for Week 7’s meeting between the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders as a big one if anyone is going to challenge Peyton Manning and company for the division crown. 

Oakland (2-3 SU, 2-3 ATS) and San Diego (2-4 SU, 2-4 ATS) have been far from safe bets this season for the backers. You can’t fault San Diego signal caller Philip Rivers for his team’s underwhelming record, however. Rivers has led the Bolts to becoming the number one passing offense in the NFL and even set franchise records for completions and passing yards (503) in Week 6’s 27-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

San Diego has historically struggled to cover at Qualcomm Stadium, going 1-7 ATS in their last eight home games.

Vikes are Hot, Lions are Not ATS

A pair of teams heading in different directions when it comes to covering the spread are set to square off in Week 7 when the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions tangle at Ford Field Sunday. Minnesota (3-2 SU) has been solid for bettors at 4-1 ATS, while the lowly Lions (1-5 SU, ATS) did manage to pick up their first win of the season against the Bears in their last contest but have struggled mightily so far.

Thanks to a strong running game led by Adrian Peterson, the Vikings rank as the sixth best team on the ground in the NFL despite averaging a league-worst 179.6 passing yards per game this season. Needless to say, the Lions will have their hands full in this one, meaning it’s going to be imperative for the squad to shore up a rushing defense that’s giving up an average of 120.5 yards per game.

The UNDER has also been a solid play for the Vikings, cashing in each of their first five contests.

Steelers Proving Oddsmakers Wrong

Does it matter who’s under center for the Pittsburgh Steelers anymore? Third string QB Landry Jones entered last Sunday’s Arizona Cardinals clash when Mike Vick went down to injury and breathed new life into the offense, tossing two touchdown passes to wideout Martavius Bryant in a 25-13 victory.

As a result, the Steelers continue to prove oddsmakers wrong. Pittsburgh (4-2 SU) is a sizzling 5-0-1 ATS in the 2015 campaign. Kansas City on the other hand has been an awful bet so far, going 1-5 SU and ATS in its opening six games.

Totals bettors have found some solace in the Chiefs, however. The OVER has gone 4-2 during those affairs.

Browns are a Red-Hot OVER Bet

The Cleveland Browns aren’t a notoriously good bet, however that’s a trend that appears to be reversing itself. Cleveland may just be 2-4 SU but have covered in four of those games. The OVER has also gone a perfect 6-0 when the Browns take the field, making them the top OVER team in the league.

The St. Louis Rams have the task of taking on the Browns in Week 7. St. Louis has been solid on defense (10th in the NFL) but own the worst offense in the entire league heading into the contest. The Rams have mustered up just 16.8 points per game in five matchups.

Since turning back to veteran signal caller Josh McCown, the Browns have looked fairly solid. McCown has eight touchdowns and 1,416 passing yards while tossing three interceptions in five appearances.

Phins Go for Second Win Under Campbell

Did the departure of ex-head coach Joe Philbin really make that much of a difference for the Miami Dolphins? Under interim bench boss Dan Campbell, the Dolphins picked up their second win of the season in a 38-10 blowout of the Tennessee Titans, while easily covering as +2.5 underdogs.

Miami (2-3 SU, ATS) will be seeking to continue that momentum at home in Week 7 against the Houston Texans. Behind a strong performance from Brian Hoyer, Houston looked good in Week 6 by topping the Jacksonville Jaguars 31-20. OVER bettors have loved the Texans so far due to a 4-1 OVER/UNDER record in their games.

Houston ranks sixth in the league in offense and 11th in defense, while the ‘Fins come in well behind at 24th in both categories.
