RV: 6* THURSDAY NIGHT 100% NFL GAME OF THE YEAR
New England vs. NY Jets,
11/22/2012 20:20 EDT,
Score: 49 - 19
Point Spread: -7/-105 New England
On Thanksgiving night the Power System Play is on the Patriots. Game 107 at 8;20 eastern. No Gronkowski no problem. The Pats will just recall someone from their practice squad and he will turn into their next superstar. Actually they have tight end Hernandez back for this one. We note that favorites off back to back wins or more on Turkey Day are 17-2 with 16 spread wins the last 24 years. For a short rest system we note that road favorites on short rest at -7 or more that scored 42 or more points at home have Covered Every time the last 24 years winning by an average 39-12 score. The Patriots are a veteran team and wont have any problems adding a few wrinkles into their offense on a short week. They were tooth and nail at home as a 10 point favorite to beat the Jets earlier in the season winning by 3 in overtime. That game started a 3 game descent for the Jets, who just got back on track with a win in St. Louis. This will be a tough spot for the Jets as the Patriots are doing much better in divisional road games of late winning by a larger margin vs these teams on the road than at home. Home dogs of 7 or more on short rest like the Jets that scored 21 or more as a road dog have lost every time the last 24 years. They lost by an average 16 points. Ouch. With the Patriots having covered 11 of the last 13 here in New York we will back the Patriots here tonight.
