Total Talk - Week 15

December 15, 2012

Week 14 Recap

The total numbers on the season have been pretty even and last week’s results were no different. The ‘over/under’ produced an even 8-8 mark but once again, a lot of total players were given early holiday gifts due to second-half fireworks – again! There were five games that saw 30 or more points scored in the final two quarters and two of those contests had 40-plus points posted. When the Jets and Browns put up 17 and 20 points respectively in a half, it should open up your eyes. If you bet the ‘over’ in the second-half blindly last week, you would’ve gone 11-5 (69%). Following this column all season, you shouldn’t be surprised since this has been a reoccurring theme. On the season, the ‘under’ stands at 105-103-1.

Line Moves

The smart money went 1-3 last week and easily could’ve been 3-1 or 2-2 if it wasn’t for some late explosions that we talked about above. Here are the line moves of 1 ½ points or more at CRIS as of Saturday evening.

N.Y. Giants at Atlanta: Line opened 52 and dropped to 50 ½
Indianapolis at Houston: Line opened 49 and dropped to 47 ½
Carolina at San Diego: Line opened 46 and dropped to 44 ½
Pittsburgh at Dallas: Line opened 44 and jumped to 45 1/2
San Francisco at New England: Line opened 48 and dropped to 46 ½

International Notes

This week, the NFL International Series continues with Buffalo and Seattle going head-to-head at the Rogers Center from Toronto. I feel both the side in Seattle (-5.5) and the total (43.5) are inflated for this matchup. This is a must-win spot for the ‘Hawks and definitely a look-ahead with San Francisco on deck in Week 16, which could be for the division lead. Buffalo has played much better recently, especially on defense. The unit has given up 14, 20, 18 and 15, which helped the ‘under’ go 3-1 during this span. Seattle has watched the ‘over’ go 6-2 in its last eight battles after the first five games of the season went ‘under.’ I do believe quarterback Russell Wilson has improved as a rookie but the ‘Hawks haven’t seen a total this high since their Week 3 affair against Green Bay (45). The NFL has tried hard to push their product in Canada and unfortunately for the league, the games have been absolutely ugly. The sample size isn’t that large, but all four of the games played in Toronto have all gone ‘under’ the number.

2008: Miami 16 Buffalo 3 – Under 43
2009: N.Y. Jets 19 Buffalo 13 – Under 37
2010: Chicago 22 Buffalo 19 – Under 41.5
2011: Washington 0 Buffalo 23 – Under 46.5

Rematch Games

On the season, the ‘over’ stands at 15-9 (63%) in the second meeting between divisional teams. Total players are looking at three more this Sunday and one of them has the highest number on the board.

Green Bay at Chicago: The ‘under’ has been a solid investment when these teams clash and it hit in the first encounter when Green Bay defeated Chicago 23-10 at home on Sept. 13. Including that outcome, the ‘under’ has gone 9-1 in the last 10 meetings. Green Bay enters this game on a 4-0 roll to the ‘under’ and Chicago hasn’t seen a game eclipse this week’s number (43) in five consecutive weeks.

Tampa Bay at New Orleans: The Bucs watched the ‘over’ cash in seven straight games but the ‘under’ has prevailed in two of the last three because the offense (22 PPG) has struggled. Tampa Bay lost to New Orleans 35-28 in the first go ‘round at home on Nov. 21 and it left points off the board too. New Orleans’ defense can’t stop anybody and the offense does have the ability to score, which is why you’re looking at 54-point total. Even though the first meeting went ‘over’ the number (49), that result snapped an eight-game streak to the ‘under’ between these teams.

Kansas City at Oakland: The Raiders beat the Chiefs 26-16 on Oct. 26 and the combined 42 points just slipped ‘over’ the closing number of 41. Despite that result, this series has watched the ‘under’ cash in seven of the last 10 encounters. Oakland (4-0) and Kansas City (4-1) both enter this game with solid ‘under’ runs. This week’s number is hovering in the 44-point range.

Under the Lights

Even though the Bengals-Eagles matchup went ‘over’ this past Thursday, the ‘under’ has still connected at a 64% (28-16) clip this weekend.

San Francisco at New England: Will the 49ers defense be able to slow down the Patriots offense? Against comparable quarterbacks (Rodgers, Manning, Brees), San Francisco gave up 22, 26 and 21 points. Tom Brady and New England put up 42 against the Texans last Monday and that unit was supposed to be great too, right? The Patriots have seen the ‘over’ go 10-3 this season and a few of those tickets were lucky (last week in particular) but they’re still winners at the betting counter. Make a note that New England hasn’t seen a total (46.5) this low since it beat the Rams 45-7 (46) from London in Week 8.

N.Y. Jets at Tennessee: It’s hard to argue for the ‘over’ here just based on the Jets’ inconsistent offense, which has scored a combined 24 points the last two weeks. What’s even more embarrassing is that New York won those games because the defense only surrendered 16. The Titans have more firepower than the Jets and they also have more holes on defense, which sets up an ‘over’ look. If you believe Tennessee will win, then you should expect some points. In their four victories this season, the Titans have scored 44, 26, 35 and 37 points.

Fearless Predictions

Despite having a “Never in Doubt” loser on the ‘under’ in Seattle-Arizona, we still managed to break even by winning our Team Total and Teaser wagers. On the week we dropped a few cents (-$20) but we’re still ahead on the season at $840 based on one-unit plays. As always, Press, Pass or Fade but in the end - Good Luck!

Best Over: Pittsburgh-Dallas 44 1/2

Best Under: Seattle-Buffalo 43 1/2

Best Team Total: Under 23 ½ Seattle

Three-Team Total Teaser:
Over 35 ½ Pittsburgh-Dallas
Under 53 Kansas City-Oakland
Under 50 ½ N.Y. Jets-Tennessee

Monday Night Football: Jets at Titans
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New York Jets at Tennessee Titans (-1, 42)

The New York Jets remain an unlikely contender for a postseason spot and will seek their third straight victory when they visit the Tennessee Titans on Monday night. Despite an offense that remains in shambles, New York has posted back-to-back victories over the Arizona Cardinals and Jacksonville Jaguars - teams with a combined one win in the last nine games - to stay within striking distance of the No. 6 seed in the AFC. The Titans are the latest struggling opponent for the Jets, having lost three straight and five of six. Tennessee has issues on both sides of the ball, with the defense surrendering at least 30 points in seven of the first nine games and the offense having bogged down since quarterback Jake Locker returned from injury.

TV: 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN.

LINE: Titans -1, O/U 42

WEATHER: Forecasts are calling for temperatures in the mid-50s with partly cloudy skies. Winds will blow out of the west at 8 mph.

ABOUT THE JETS (6-7): With Mark Sanchez continuing to flounder, New York finally reverted to its preseason promise of a ground-and-pound attack in last week's 17-10 win at Jacksonville. Bilal Powell rushed for 78 yards and a TD on 19 carries and Shonn Greene had 77 yards and a score on 20 rushes. That allowed coach Rex Ryan to keep the ball out of the hands of Sanchez, who threw for only 111 yards after being benched the previous week in favor of third-stringer Greg McIlroy. New York's receiving corps has been decimated by injuries, leading to the decision to bring back well-traveled veteran Braylon Edwards earlier this week. The Jets' defense has permitted a combined 16 points in the last two games after getting shredded for 49 by New England on Thanksgiving night.

ABOUT THE TITANS (4-9): Locker missed five games earlier in the season due to injury and he has shown little progression since returning to the lineup. The second-year QB has thrown seven interceptions in the past three games, including one from his own end zone that helped wipe out Tennessee's 13-point halftime lead against Indianapolis a week ago. Despite his struggles - among the reasons for the dismissal of offensive coordinator Chris Palmer - the Titans are not shy about having Locker air it out. He's attempted an average of 40 passes in the last three games, and they are not coming when the team is forced to play catch-up. Running back Chris Johnson has rushed for 1,000 yards for five straight seasons, but he is averaging only 3.3 yards per carry in the last three games.

TRENDS:

* Jets are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games.
* Titans are 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall.
* Jets are 6-0 ATS in their last six meetings.
* Under is 6-0-1 in Titans’ last seven games vs. a team with a losing record.

EXTRA POINTS:

1. Tennessee has won four of its last five Monday night games.

2. Edwards was claimed off waivers from Seattle this week despite posting on his Twitter account that New York's management was "idiots" for the way Sanchez has been utilized.

3. Titans TE Jared Cook, the team's second-leading receiver, is done for the season after suffering a torn rotator cuff in last week's game.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tale of the tape: Jets at Titans
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Take a quick glance at the tale of the tape for Monday night’s showdown between the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans.

Offense

Mark Sanchez has continued to struggle despite less-than-stellar competition. The Jets' embattled quarterback is 22 of 40 for 208 yards with three interceptions and a fumble over the last two games. With Sanchez continuing to flounder, New York finally reverted to its preseason promise of a ground-and-pound attack in last week's 17-10 win at Jacksonville. Bilal Powell rushed for 78 yards and a TD on 19 carries and Shonn Greene had 77 yards and a score on 20 rushes. New York's receiving corps has been decimated by injuries, leading to the decision to bring back well-traveled veteran Braylon Edwards (hamstring) earlier this week. He is probable to suit up Monday night.

Titans QB Jake Locker missed five games earlier in the season due to injury and he has shown little progression since returning to the lineup. The second-year QB has thrown seven interceptions in the past three games, including one from his own end zone that helped wipe out Tennessee's 13-point halftime lead against Indianapolis a week ago. Running back Chris Johnson has rushed for 1,000 yards for five straight seasons, but is averaging only 3.3 yards per carry in the last three games. Tight end Jared Cook, the team's second-leading receiver, is done for the season after suffering a torn rotator cuff in last week's game.

Edge: Titans


Defense

The Jets' defense has permitted a combined 16 points in the last two games after getting shredded for 49 by New England on Thanksgiving night. But keep in mind those dominant performances the past two weeks were against the NFL’s two worst offenses (Arizona, Jacksonville).

The Titans put together a dominant defensive first half — holding the Colts to 111 total yards, sacking Andrew Luck three times last week. The Tennessee stop unit limited the league’s third-best offense at the time to 269 yards and 4-of-12 third-down conversions. It also scored a touchdown. The Titans allow an average of 127 rushing yards, tied for 23rd in the league.

Edge: Jets


Special teams

The Jets rank eighth in opponents’ kickoff-return average and lead the league with 22 opponents’ drives starting inside their own 20. Kicker Nick Folk has made only 76 percent of his field goal attempts this season, ranking him 32nd in the league in that category.

Titans return specialist Darius Reynaud enjoyed success early in the season, but teams are now avoiding him. He returned just one punt for 14 yards in last week’s loss to the Colts and was ripped by the local media for his poor decision-making the week before against Houston. Rob Bironas and Brett Kern are one of the better kicking/punting duos in the league.

Edge: Titans


Word on the street

“Big, talented, physical guy (Locker). Almost has a mentality of a running back when he takes off with it. Obviously, he’s a great athlete, he has a big arm. He’s a guy, certainly, you have to worry about. Not only with his arm, but his scrambling ability as well.” – Jets head coach Rex Ryan on Jake Locker.

“We have a young quarterback and most teams have to decide, do we want to try to confuse him and go after him, or make him read coverage? I'm sure they'll do a little bit of both.” – Titans head coach Mike Munchak on what he expects from the Jets defense.

Jets Fly Into Tennessee Hoping To Stay In Playoff Race

New York Jets at Tennessee Titans
NFL Betting Preview
Date: 12/17/2012 at 8:40 p.m. (ET)
Opening Lines: Titans -1, O/U 42½
Television: ESPN

New York Jets: Coach Rex Ryan and the Jets (6-7 straight up, 6-6-1 against the spread) are still clinging to faint playoff hopes as they make their way to Nashville for this Monday Night Football matchup. New York has won two straight along with three of four despite an offense that continues to struggle to move the ball and score points. The Jets rank 30th in the NFL in total offense (305.9 yards per game) and 26th in scoring (18.8 points per game), but they have been able to rely on a defense that held the past two opponents, Arizona and Jacksonville, to a combined 428 yards and 16 points. A receiving corps depleted by injuries forced the Jets to re-sign Braylon Edwards, most recently with the Seahawks. Edwards is expected to play this Sunday. New York is 3-3 on the road this season after last week's victory in Jacksonville, going 3-2-1 against the spread. The totals are split 3-3 in the contests.

Tennessee Titans: While offense has been a big problem for the Jets, poor defense has plagued the Titans (4-9 SU, 4-9 ATS). Tennessee has dropped its last three games and five of the past six, also falling vs. the line in each defeat. The Titans are 27th among NFL teams in total defense, with opponents churning out over 377 yards per game, and next-to-last allowing close to 30 points a contest. Running back Chris Johnson went over the 1,000-yard rushing mark last week to rank ninth in the league, but it has been an inconsistent path to the season total. Johnson was held out of some practices this week due to an ankle injury, but he is expected to suit up and start on Monday (click for updated NFL injury report). This series dates back to the early days of the AFL when the Titans called Houston home, and the Jets have a slight 14-13-1 lead. New York has won five of the six meetings since the Titans relocated, covering the last five matchups.

NFL Week 15 Preview: Jets at Titans

NEW YORK JETS (6-7)

at TENNESSEE TITANS (4-9)


Kickoff: Monday, 8:35 p.m. EDT
Line: Tennessee -2, Total: 41.5

The Jets look to get back to .500 and remain alive in the playoff race when they visit Tennessee on Monday night.

This might be the least appealing matchup in Monday Night Football history, but the Jets are going to be playing hard, as they’re still entertaining playoff hopes. They’ve won back-to-back games, albeit against bottom-feeders Arizona (not a cover) and Jacksonville, but scored only 24 total points in those wins. The Titans, meanwhile, have crashed and burned. They’re just 1-3 SU and ATS since getting QB Jake Locker back in the lineup, and Locker has posted a 60.8 passer rating with seven interceptions during Tennessee’s current three-game losing streak. The Jets are 5-1 SU (6-0 ATS) versus the Titans since 1998, with the last meeting coming in 2009, a 24-17 New York victory.

Will the Jets be able to win for the fourth time in five games? For the answer, connect to The Platinum Sheet for all the StatFox Experts picks for every NFL game throughout the 2012 season and playoffs.

The Jets have totaled just 559 yards (216 through the air) during their two-game win streak. QB Mark Sanchez has completed just 22-of-40 passes (5.2 YPA) with 3 INT over these two victories. For the season, Sanchez has the third-worst passer rating (71.8) among all qualified passers, throwing for just 6.5 YPA, 12 TD and 13 INT. New York is hoping newly-signed WR Braylon Edwards will help Sanchez get back on track. Edwards caught 53 passes for 904 yards and 7 TD in his final season with the Jets in 2010, and should be ready to play after being claimed off waivers from Seattle earlier in the week. The Titans have allowed the seventh-most passing yards in the league (251 YPG), so the potential is there for a Jets passing resurgence. New York may just stick to running the football though, as the Titans give up 127 rushing YPG (24th in NFL). But even though the Jets have 147 rushing YPG in their past four contests, the Titans have limited their past four opponents to just 94 rushing YPG. The Jets RB duo of Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell has combined for 317 rushing yards during the two-game win streak. New York needs to take better care of the football to win this game, as it has committed 11 turnovers in the past three games.

Locker has struggled with his accuracy since his return, but he is running very well with 89 yards on just eight carries in the past two games. The Titans may try some trick plays in an effort to penetrate New York's defense allowing just 29 points in its past three wins combined. They will also look to throw deep to dynamic WR Kenny Britt who is coming off a season-high eight catches for 143 yards in the 27-23 loss at Indianapolis. Locker will not have the team's second-leading receiver in TE Jared Cook (44 catches), who is out for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury. The Jets rank third in the NFL in passing defense (196 YPG), but have surrendered the fourth-most rushing yards in the league at 137 YPG. That could equal a huge day for Tennessee RB Chris Johnson who has rushed for 827 yards (5.5 YPC) and 4 TD in his past eight games.

Locker has struggled with his accuracy since his return, but he is running very well with 89 yards on just eight carries in the past two games. The Titans may try some trick plays in an effort to penetrate New York's defense allowing just 29 points in its past three wins combined. They will also look to throw deep to dynamic WR Kenny Britt who is coming off a season-high eight catches for 143 yards in the 27-23 loss at Indianapolis. Locker will not have the team's second-leading receiver in TE Jared Cook (44 catches), who is out for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury. The Jets rank third in the NFL in passing defense (196 YPG), but have surrendered the fourth-most rushing yards in the league at 137 YPG. That could equal a huge day for Tennessee RB Chris Johnson who has rushed for 827 yards (5.5 YPC) and 4 TD in his past eight games.
