Max Against the Spread | Week 3: Thursday Night


Moving forward throughout the season, I’ll be releasing my point spread predictions in two parts. Part 1 will cover the Thursday game, and part 2 will cover the rest of the week’s slate. The reason for this is my desire to use the most up-to-date lines as possible. Let’s get to tonight’s game, which is clearly one of the most highly anticipated sporting events of the past decade.

Jets (+3) @ Browns (-3)

Where were you when the band of misfits took down Russia in what would later be dubbed “The Miracle on Ice?” Where were you when Alex Smith found Vernon Davis in the end zone for the game winner against the Saints in the 2011 playoffs? Where were you when the Browns last won a football game?

I don’t remember. No one does.

That’s all going to change tonight. The stage is set for the greatest party in Ohio history. The browns are going to win this football game, and it will come on a go-ahead field goal as time expires. That’s right, the Jets will cover the spread, but Gatorade will cover Hue Jackson’s head.

My pick: Jets (+3) (EVEN)

Stay tuned for Part 2 of this week’s picks!
