Jaguars (2-6) at Colts (0-9)

Pick: Jaguars

Saints (6-3) at Falcons (5-3)

Line: Saints -1 (O/U 50)
The Scoop: A meaningless spread, so basically pick ‘em. The Saints are the better team. But take the over too.
Pick: Saints

Texans (6-3) at Bucs (4-4)

Line: Texans -3 (O/U 45.5)

The Scoop: Titans are 1-7 SU?in their last eight road games.
Pick: Panthers

Cardinals (2-6) at Eagles (3-5)

Broncos (3-5) at Chiefs (4-4)

Line: Chiefs -3.5 (O/U 41)

Bills (5-3) at Cowboys (4-4)

Rams (1-7) at Browns (3-5)

Line: Browns -3 (O/U 37)
The Scoop: The Rams’ only win ATS?this year was also their only win SU. They do the same here.

Patriots at Jets

Line: Jets -1(O/U 47.5)
Key Injuries: WR Plaxico Burress (back) questionable. RB Joe McKnight (toe) questionable. S
Brodney Pool (knee) questionable. Patrick Chung (foot) questionable. LB Brandon Spikes (knee) questionable.
The scoop: You can throw out the line with it so close. It’s basically a pick ‘em. The Jets are riding a hot streak coming in; the Pats are doing just the opposite. The game will depend heavily on injuries. If Plaxico Burress plays, it’s hard not to like the Jets. He is uncoverable in the end zone. Right now, it looks like he’ll play. We’ll go with the hot team evening up the season series.
Pick: Jets

Monday, 8:30 p.m.

Vikings (2-6) at Packers (8-0)
