Las Vegas Raiders at New York Jets: OVER/46.5
The Raiders only mustered 6 points against the Atlanta Falcons, so they’ll look to get back on track against a Jets team that is 5th worst in the league in yards allowed per game with 395 yards. New York also allows the 4th most points per game at 29.3 points. Las Vegas will be without star Running Back Josh Jacobs, but it may be for the better as the Jets have done a decent job at stopping the run this year. The Raiders will look to air the ball out against a Jets team that allows 284 passing yards per game. Las Vegas’ defense is not much better as they allow the 5th most points per game at 29 points. Defensive End Clelin Ferrell and Safety Johnathan Abram are out for this game. The Jets only scored 3 points against a stout Dolphins defense last week, but they will have plenty of opportunities to score with Quarterback Sam Darnold and a fully healthy receiving corps.
New York Giants at Seattle Seahawks: UNDER/47
Daniel Jones is unavailable for the Giants in week 13 after suffering a hamstring injury in last week’s contest vs the Bengals. Colt McCoy will get the start for New York, and he did not look great in relief of Jones last week. McCoy completed 6/10 passes for 31 yards with a QBR of 23.2. Wayne Gallman will have to carry the offensive load for the Giants, but Seattle only allows 89.3 rushing yards per game. On the other side of the ball, the Giants do have a great defense that should pose a problem for even one of the league’s best offenses. New York is ranked 10th in the league by only allowing 23 points per game and 10th in the league in total yardage allowed with 340.1 yards allowed per game. This will be a one sided game, but the Seahawks will not be able to score enough on their own to hit the over.
Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans: Jonathan Taylor OVER/52.5 Rushing Yards
The Houston Texans are the second worst team at stopping the run, as they allow 154.7 rushing yards per game. Jonathan Taylor missed last week’s game against the Titans as he spent time on the COVID list, so he should be refreshed and ready to go against the Texans. Taylor has rushed for 55+ yards in 6 out of 10 games this year. In 11 games, the Texans have allowed 11 running backs to rush for 55+ yards in a game with 6 of those running backs rushing for 100+ yards. Derrick Henry also ran for 212 yards in week 6 against the Texans, so expect a big week from Jonathan Taylor.
