Fabulous 5: TNF Week 9 Pick
Welcome back for another special edition of the Fabulous 5 NFL picks against the Las Vegas spread! After a very brutal Week 8, we'll be looking to get back on track for Week 9. No sweat, these things happen in this world. Remember, the goal is to finish the season above 55% to be profitable. We're going to kick it off with another Thursday Night Football game as the first pick of five.
NEW YORK JETS (+3.5)
The Jets welcome in the Buffalo Bills for a division rematch after a 21-12 loss in Week 1. New York might be the scrappiest team in the league right behind the Chicago Bears as they come prepared and ready to throw down with anyone. Even though the Bills travel is only an hour-and-a-half plane ride, I like the Jets in this spot as they drawl back-to-back home games. Although Buffalo is quietly becoming everyone's favorite team, they are vulnerable. Both of their losses this season have been on the road to underwhelming teams. Road losses to Cincinnati and Carolina should signal red flags. The Jets are 5-0 ATS in its last 5 games at home and Buffalo was blown out 30-10 at Metlife Stadium last season. This should be a gritty, boring and sloppy Thursday Night Football game like they always are. Take the home team with the points. Jets win a close one, 23-20. J-E-T-S! JETS! JETS! JETS!
