New Orleans at New York

Sunday 11/27 08:30 PM Eastern

2 units on New York +1.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)  RESULT: LOSS

It takes a team as bad as the Jets to force the linesmakers to favor the Saints on the road. How crazy is this? New Orleans is 2-8 and losing by over ten points per game on average. They've covered the spread in two road games this season. One was Carolina in week one which we chalk up to the "win one for the citizens of New Orleans" factor. The other was last week against New England. That one was due to a much inflated line as discussed in this newsletter last week. In this one I don't think they deserve to be the chalk. Especially in a nationally televised Sunday night game. The Saints are a pissed off bunch - and not in a good way. Just look at any shot of Jim Haslett's face this season - any one. Haven't seen him smile - not once! The hated owner wants to move the team and Joe Horn is taking pot shots at the Commish. They are on a six game skid. Things just aren't good. There are no good vibes and that makes it tough to march into New York and win this one. They aren't clicking in any facet of the game and the breaks do all seem to be going against them. They had a chance to win last week but Aaron Brooks was intercepted in the end zone on the last play of the game. I do think that this team, at this point in the season, expects to lose. Meanwhile, the Jets see an opportunity for a win here. I also like backing teams off a shutout loss. They come back determined to not lay another egg. Teams that have scored 14 or less on average over the course of the season and in each of the past two weeks are very good bets the following week. Two stars on the J-E-T-S-Jets-Jets-Jets.
