Colts vs. Jets Free Picks 12/05/16 - Monday Night Football Odds & TV


The 3-8 New York Jets will host the 5-6 Indianapolis Colts at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey Monday night. The game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN with an 8:30 PM ET start.

The teams opened at a pick’em but the Colts are now favored by 1.5-points. The total has dropped a full point from the opener of 49.5 points.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts will have their starting quarterback Andrew Luck back under center Monday night after him sitting out one game due to a concussion. The Colts managed just 310 total yards and turned the ball over twice in a 28-7 loss to Pittsburgh without their signal caller last week. Indianapolis wideout T.Y. Hilton (NFL fifth-best 942 receiving yards) is expected to play on Monday despite sustaining a back injury against the Steelers.

Indianapolis ranks 25th in rushing offense, 11th in passing offense and averages 25 points a game. The Colts have one of the worst defenses in the league, ranking 30th in yards allowed and allowing 27 points per game.

The Colts are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 road games vs. a team with a losing home record but 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a double-digit loss at home. Under is 21-5 in their last 26 games following a double-digit loss at home.

New York Jets

The New York Jets have decided to stick with veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick under center despite a couple of talented quarterbacks on the roster. Fitzpatrick threw for two touchdowns in a 22-17 loss to the Patriots last Sunday and did the same in a 20-7 victory over Indianapolis in the last meeting on Sept. 21, 2015.

New York ranks 12th in rushing offense, 24th in passing offense, and scores 18 points on average. Their defense ranks 12th in yards allowed and is giving up 24 points per contest.

The Jets are 10-1-2 ATS in their last 13 games in December  but just 4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. Under is 4-0 in the Jets last four Monday night games.
