Free NFL Proline Picks – Thu Nov 17
New York Jets (-7) vs. Denver Broncos (+7); Total 40
The Thursday Night game features a Jets team that had its three game winning streak come to an abrupt end thanks to the Patriots and a Tim Tebow led Broncos team that just seems to win (somehow). Since Tebow took over as the starting QB the Broncos are 3-1. But if you watched any of the Broncos game it has not been very pretty. If you like to see gun slinging football than do not watch this Broncos team. Denver put the ball in the air just 8 times last week (although one throw was a 56 yard TD pass from Tebow). The Broncos have turned into a running / option team to say the least. In total the Broncos ran the ball a staggering 55 times last week. That begs the question how good is the Jets run defense. It has not been great. The Jets are allowing 116 yards per game on the ground (15th best in the NFL). Now the Broncos do have some injury concern at running back. Lance Ball had to carry the ball 30 times last week (for 96 yards) due to injuries to Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno. It looks as though Ball will be getting the majority of the carries this week as well (along with Tebow of course).

Live Betting For The Jets vs. Broncos Game at Bodog Sportsbook!
The betting line for the Jets vs. Broncos opened as the Jets a -5 favorite. The early money came in on the Broncos pushing the Jets down to just a -4 favorite. Since then the Jets have jumped up to a -7 favorite at Bodog Sportsbook. The total for the game also dropped a few points down to 40. Laying -7 points with this Jets team on the road just seems like to many points to me. The Jets for the season are just 1-3 on the road. I expect this to be a tight, fairly low scoring game decided by less than a touchdown. The Jets might win this game but I think it will be by less than 7. I’ll take the Broncos and the +7 points at Bodog Sportsbook in this game.
