Thanksgiving Dart: Going green in the nightcap

Five picks against the number every week, that's how it works here. While you're having another piece of pie or thinking about a turkey sandwich, consider this selection below. We'll add four more picks before the Sunday slate kicks off.

Jets +7 vs. Patriots: Nothing too tricky on this one. The line is too high. The Jets should have won the first meeting in Foxboro, and New York has won two of the last three home games in this series.

The Jets pass defense is still a formidable group, and for all the flaws of Gang Green's offense, it should be able to move the ball on New England. The short turnaround for this game also favors the home team. Look for a competitive match in the fourth quarter; let's take the spot.

Last Week: 3-2
Season: 33-22
2011: 41-39
2010: 49-34
