Can the New England Patriots cover a big 9.5-point spread against the visiting New York Jets on Thursday Night Football? The VSB Computer thinks they’ll be able to pull off the ATS victory with some room to spare.
The VSB Computer projects a 32.3 to 19.5 win for Tom Brady and company over the division-rival Jets on Thursday night, which would give the Patriots an easy cover at the sportsbooks. New York has an NFL betting trend on their side for this week however, as they’re 3-1 ATS in their last four games against New England.

For Sunday Night Football the Denver Broncos are favored by 7 points at home over the San Francisco 49ers, but the VSB Computer doesn’t expect them to cover in a projected 29.6 to 25.8 victory. The Pittsburgh Steelers are 3-point home favorites over the Houston Texans for Monday Night Football, and the VSB Computer has them winning and covering in a 22.8 to 17.2 result.
The biggest road favorite of the week are the Seattle Seahawks, who are giving 7.5 points to the St. Louis Rams. That spread hasn’t given the VSB Computer pause, however, as it projects a 30.0 to 14.4 win for the Seahawks at the Edward Jones Dome. Seattle is 7-3 ATS in its past 10 games as a road favorite.
And the Jacksonville Jaguars, at 0-6 SU and 1-5 ATS on the season, are projected by the VSB Computer to lose 21.6 to 10.5 to the Cleveland Browns this week. The Browns are another road favorite at the sportsbooks for Week 7, giving 5.5 points to the struggling Jaguars.
