I Ching NFL Picks: Thursday Night Prognostication
Jets @ Patriots -12.5
Hexagram 32: Duration
I've never seen a bigger one week reversal on a team than with these New York Jets. Last week, most thought they would be one of the league's worst teams and Vegas made a killing as 90% of the action on the Jets' upset win was placed against them. It seems the performance of rookie quarterback Geno Smith against the Bucs has the public warming to Gang Green as over half of the current picks on ESPN's Pigskin Pick'em has them covering this spread. With New England just barely getting past Buffalo in Week One and hurting at many positions, this point spread begs you to go against the Pats. I think these teams are still what we thought they were heading in to the season for the most part, despite the opening game revelations; the Jets will still struggle to score points and the Patriots still have one of the best quarterbacks in the league and are the class of this division. Take the home team and don't think too much about the points, and don't get suckered into thinking taking the Jets on the road is a good idea.
Last Week: 8-8
