New York Jets vs Detroit Lions: DET +6
I waited for the public to pound the Jets on this one and that's just what they did this weekend.  Shop around for the best number, but Bodog has it at +6 right now.   I don't have time for a full write-up, but DET is still not getting the respect they deserve from oddsmakers.  They might not have the wins to show for it, but they have been good ATS this year and they match up a bit better than people think vs the Jets.   NY will have success on the ground and they will make DET earn their points, but this is not a flawless Super Bowl team yet.  They have been average in several categories and Sanchez is still prone to having subpar performances.  The DET pass rush should be able to pressure him into some mistakes today.  Even if DET is down in the 4th quarter, they believe they are improving and have a young team that can move the ball.  All good ingredients for a late cover if needed.  Prediction: Bank DET +6.
