  • The New York Jets surprised the NFL in Week 5, not just defeating the Denver Broncos but doing so in emphatic fashion. They now focus their attention on hosting the 1-4 Indianapolis Colts in Week 6. The Jets started the week as 2.5-point favorites at home, with the total Sportsbook at 45.5.

    SHARK BITES
    • The OVER has hit in five of the Jets’ last seven home games (avg. combined score: 47.71).
    • The Jets are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games.
    • The Colts are 2-7 SU in their last nine games in the early afternoon.

    Colts vs Jets Game Center

    MY PICK FOR SUNDAY: OVER 45.5

    The Jets have been a feast-or-famine team through five games this year. In their two victories, they scored 82 points. In their three losses … 41 points.

    The only fact to take solace in is that two of their losses came against Jacksonville and Cleveland, two of the league’s better defensive units. The Colts, their Week 6 opponent, are not one of the NFL’s fearsome defenses.

    Indianapolis is in the bottom third in points allowed, yielding 27.6 points per game. The Colts also permit more than 106 rushing yards per game, which plays right into the hands of a Jets team that just rumbled for 323 yards on the ground last week against Denver.

    The Jets, however, aren’t exactly the same defensive unit we’re used to seeing. While they have some talent, they have already permitted 18 passing plays of 20-plus yards, which is among the most in the league, and have yielded the most rushing plays of 20-plus yards in the NFL.

    Colts QB Andrew Luck hasn’t exactly been lighting up the field so far this year, but he started to show signs of being the old Luck last week against New England, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see them take a few more shots downfield.

    History also plays on the side of scoring: the total has gone OVER in six of the past eight meetings between these two teams. With two young, talented quarterbacks, and some questionable defenses, expect Sunday to change that trend to seven games out of nine, with the game going OVER 45.5 points.

    THE CROWELL FLIES STRAIGHT

    The New York Jets made one of the offseason’s most underrated signings, adding veteran running back Isaiah Crowell to team up with Bilal Powell to form a dynamic running back tandem.

    The result is a Jets team that sits fifth in rushing yards per attempt and seventh in rushing yards per game.

    After logging 219 yards against Denver, Crowell now sits third in the NFL with 390 yards on the season, but is actually second on the Jets in carries, as Powell has two more attempts, and is currently 18th with 264 yards.

    This two-headed rushing attack, if it can keep rolling, sets up the play-action for rookie QB Sam Darnold, who has shown he can throw the deep ball with ease, and reconnected with speedy Robby Anderson in Week 5 as well. That spells trouble for the Colts, and makes the Jets, at -2.5 at home, an intriguing pick to cover on Sunday.

    LUCK NEEDS TO AIR IT OUT

    Through five weeks, Andrew Luck leads the NFL with 49 passing attempts per game, including three games with more than 50 pass attempts, and one game with 62 passes. But unfortunately for the Colts, he’s not taking shots deep, as he currently sits 32nd at just 6.09 yards per attempt.

    Luck does have 12 touchdowns and is on pace for more than 4,700 passing yards, but one has to wonder how much more damage he could do if they looked to go more vertical in the passing game.

    The Colts are likely to be without top wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, who missed Week 5 with a hamstring injury, but there are signs that Luck is starting to look deeper into the secondary. He has 13 completions of 20-plus yards this season, but five of those came last week. The Jets secondary boasts some rising stars but is still susceptible to getting beat on big plays.

    If the Colts passing game looks to attack New York, they could not only come out of MetLife Stadium with a win, but could also put up enough points to make the OVER look good.
