Indianapolis Colts at Arizona Cardinals

Carson Wentz over 0.5 interceptions +110

The Cardinals aren’t exactly coming off their best showing of the season, and their defense hasn’t been trending in the right direction. Jared Goff went 21-for-26 and threw for three touchdowns in Detroit’s big-time upset. But now the Cardinals will face a quarterback who threw a pick on only 12 attempts in Week 15.

Unless Arizona’s offense sputters again, Carson Wentz should have to throw a little more than he did against New England. The more he throws, the more I like the team that’s forced 12 interceptions in 14 games to force No. 13 on Saturday. Even though he’s only been picked off six times this season, Wentz hasn’t been accurate this season. His 62.7% completion percentage ranks 26th in the NFL.

Jacksonville Jaguars at New York Jets

James Robinson anytime touchdown scorer -105

In case you weren’t aware, the Jets aren’t good. Whatever angle you want to examine their defense from, it’s not going to be pretty. For example, the Jets have put up terrible numbers against running backs.

The Jets have given up 21 rushing touchdowns and four receiving touchdowns to running backs this season. Opposing backs have logged a rushing touchdown in 11 of 14 games vs. the Jets, six of those games resulting in multiple rushing TD performances from opposing backfields. Also, in one of those three games without a rushing touchdown, Dolphins running back Myles Gaskin logged a receiving TD vs. the Jets.

Point is, running backs get it done vs. New York. And with Robinson out from under Urban Meyer’s thumb, the Jacksonville RB won’t run short on opportunities to make some noise.
