After adding an enormous 21.39 units to our bankroll in the previous week (Sept 7-13th), SPS clients celebrated yet another very profitable week (7.86 units) from Monday to Sunday.
Take Indianapolis Colts at -6.5 spread against NY Jets for 3% of the bankroll.
There has been a lot of talk about how good the New York Jets looked in their week 1 victory over the Cleveland Browns. New York used a balance attack both on the ground and through the air to come away with a convincing victory. That being said, their victory did come against the Cleveland Browns and they will be taking quite a step up in competition tonight against a team that was one win away from making it to the Superbowl last year.
The Indianapolis Colts come into this contest after getting thoroughly dominated in their Week 1 matchup with Buffalo. Buffalo managed to completely shut down the normally explosive offense of the Colts and had constant pressure on Andrew Luck. After such a sluggish performance, the Colts are no doubt looking forward to put in an impressive performance especially in their home opener. Let's not forget that Andrew Luck and company have covered 14 out of 15 spreads following a defeat in his NFL career!
Rex Ryan formulated the perfect defensive game plan to shut down the Colts. He blitzed and blitzed often, which is a trademark of Ryan's defense. Although it would be smart for the Jets to implement the same type of game plan; the bad news from them is that Chuck Pagano and Andrew Luck have likely spent the last week going over film and looking at all of the different pressure that the Bills brought. Their game plan heading into this contest is likely to try and get the ball out of Luck's hands early with either quick dump offs, check downs or options to the hot receiver in order to negate the pass rush. We also wouldn't be surprised to see Luck audible into more running plays when he identifies the blitz now that they have Frank Gore in the backfield. Gore was held in check for the most part last week against an aggressive front 7, but that likely won't be the case this week.
At the end of the day, the Jets still have a lot to prove that they can contend with the elite teams in the league. After such a sluggish start to the season, we expect Andrew Luck to bounce back in this contest and put in a quality performance. Indy simply has too many weapons for Jets defense to contend with and the Jets offense simply doesn't have enough playmakers to keep up on the scoreboard. This game may be close in the early going, but Indy should mount enough offense in the second half to break this game open and cover the spread.
