Colts Vs Jets Spread, ATS Pick & TV InfoNoah Williams
Despite their losing record the Indianapolis Colts have a shot at the AFC South title, but they need to leave New York with a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. At 5-6, the Colts are just behind the Houston Texans (6-5) and Tennessee Titans (6-6) in a competitive AFC South race. The Colts own the head-to-head tiebreaker with the Titans but lost in overtime to Houston, which they visit next week.
Their opponent, the New York Jets are not playoff contenders this year. But the Jets offense should find success this week going up against a Colts defense that’s ranked 30th overall in total yards surrendered per game, with a secondary that’s ranked just 31st against the pass.
The Jets have done well in two wins against Luck. In those meetings, Luck has completed 43 of 81 passes for 530 yards with one touchdown, five interceptions. He also has been sacked four times and has a career 52.0 passer rating against New York.
The Week 13 NFL Colts Vs Jets betting spread favors Indianapolis by 1.5-points. Kick-off is this Monday, December 5 at 8:30 PM ET on ESPN from the MetLife Stadium, in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Indianapolis averages 257.0 passing yards per game (11th). QB Andrew Luck (2827 yards 19 TDs & 8 INTs) is expected to play on Monday. WR T.Y. Hilton (60 rec, 942 yards, 5 TDs) was limited to three catches for 54 yards before bruising his lower back last week. Hilton practiced Wednesday after sitting out Monday and seems likely to play.
"He’s a guy that breathes football," receiver T.Y. Hilton said of Luck. "You could tell it hurt him by looking in his eye. He just wanted to be around us, make sure we were comfortable."
The Colts average 95.4 rushing yards per game (25th). RB Frank Gore (178 car, 670 yards, 4 TDs) is averaging 60.9 rushing yards per game. Gore ran for only 28 yards on 15 carries last week against Pittsburgh.

Fitzpatrick has completed 57.6 percent of his passes, down from his 59.6 percent completion rate last season when he had 31 touchdown passes and only 15 interceptions.
“It’s not about Bryce and it’s not about Fitz, it’s about our team trying to win ball games,” Jets coach Todd Bowles said Monday. “Right now, Fitz is our starter. He gives us a good chance to win.”
