Staff Picks: Jets!

Staff Picks: Jets!

This article is part of our Staff Picks series.

DDD won Week 3 at 10-6, but otherwise it was a bad one for the staff. First place is now a three-way tie between Erickson, Pianow and DDD at 26-22. 

We have only one unanimous pick this week, the Jets. If that isn't proof we come upon those independently, nothing is.

This week, we have one unanimous pick, the Jets. Last week we went 1-1 on unanimous picks, winning with the Bengals, but losing with the Broncos to go 4-5 on the year. We went 6-10 on majority picks (three or more writers) to go 25-23 on the year. We were 23-17-1 on unanimous picks  and 130-120-6 on majority picks last year. 

EricksonI know there's a risk that I'm living too much in the moment, but I have the Packers as a 10-point favorite in this one. Second best bet is the Texans.
PianowskiI know this is never predictive, but I absolutely loathe this week's slate. Maybe I'll have stronger leans later in the week, but I don't have them right now.
LissI like the Packers laying only seven at home against a weak Falcons team, and I also like the Texans laying only 3.5 at home against the Vikings. The Texans aren't terrible, just had a brutal schedule (@Chiefs, Ravens, @Steelers.)
PayneLots of big spreads this week. Vegas has finally adjusted to the high point totals with many of them being 54-plus. It'll be interesting to see if they've adjusted enough.
Del DonCrazy week with so many high totals, and this version of Drew Brees shouldn't be giving more than a field goal on the road. I also like the Colts, Cowboys and Vikings.
