2 units on New York -6 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)  RESULT: LOSS

With Eli Manning on the sidelines, Jessee Palmer, Tim Hasselbeck and Jared Lorenzen shoulder the load for the Giants on Friday night. The Giants lost to the Jets in this game last year, as they usually do, dropping the game by 7 points. Without Manning, this should be an old-fashioned blowout. Normally I don't like laying big chalk in preseason game, or in any game for that matter. But, going to make an exception here. The Jets have a lot going for them situationally here. In the last couple of weeks of the preseason, teams that are off 2 consecutive ATS and SU wins at home cover the spread about 80% of the time. Winning road teams off a home win also do very well covering about 75% of the time. Layer on the fact that Tom Coughlin is a perennial loser in the preseason and we have the recipe for an easy Jets cover. Two stars on the J-E-T-S-Jets-Jets-Jets.
