NFL Week 4: Fading the Jets and Other Degen Tales of Ordinary Madness

By Pauly

Those damn Jets can't even lose properly. Yeah, they beat the Bills in a tough division match-up... but, so what? It was a home game that they were supposed to win. Credit Rex Ryan's covert defensive schemes. Rookie QB EJ Manuel had everything including the kitchen sink thrown at him last Sunday. The Jets disrupted Manuel's flow and they were able to steal a win against the Bills. We lost backing the Bills with points and the moneyline.

But now the Jets take on the upstart Tennessee Titans, who are 2-1 after Jake Locker's last second heroics last weekend. Locker should expect the EJ Manuel treatment by Rex and the Jets D. They will throw the kitchen sink at Locker, but in this instance, Locker seems better suited to handle the extra pressure. After all, even Bill Barnwell think we're witnessing the Rise of Jake Locker.
Fade the Jets (2-2 season):

Tennessee Titans -3.5
Yes, fade the Jets once again. Locker and the Titans win by a TD. It's the fourth weekend of the season and a quarter of the season is almost over, but expect an ugly low-scoring affair. The Titans are 3-0-1 ATS over their last four games. The UNDER is 4-0 in the last four Jets road games, while the UNDER is 9-4-1 in Tennessee's last 14 home games.

Cat Teams: Cincy -3.5... Sure, Cleveland rallied last week to beat a shity team. This is a division game that is always a bare-knuckle brawl. Cincy wants a division title... badly. They'll come to play. I expect AJ Green to light up Cleveland's secondary.

Leans: Balt -3... I'm on the Baltimore bandwagon. They covered a couple of times already for us, so we're looking to back Balt -3 again this week against Buffalo.

Notable Dogs: NE +2.5... You don't see Bellicheat and Brady as a dog very often. sure, Matty Ice cannot lose in  Atlanta, but there's rumblings of the return of Gronk!
