Week 9 of the NFL season kicks off Thursday with the New York Jets visiting the Indianapolis Colts.
The Jets are coming off an upset against the Bengals in Cincinnati while the Colts enter off a disappointing loss at home to the Titans.
ESPN betting analysts Joe Fortenbaugh (31-15-1, 3-2 last week), Doug Kezirian (11-14-2, 1-1), Tyler Fulghum (7-17, 1-1) and Anita Marks (139-104, 15-14), sports betting deputy editor David Bearman (17-12-1, 2-1), Stats & Information’s Seth Walder 34-34 (6-0), Football Outsiders’ Aaron Schatz (28-18, 4-2) and fantasy/betting analyst Eric Moody (56-43, 13-11) have teamed up to offer their best bets.

New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts (-10.5, 45.5)
Schatz: If you’ve looked at the Football Outsiders DVOA ratings lately, you’ve noticed that the Colts are shockingly 10th overall despite a 3-5 record. If my numbers say the Colts are better than conventional wisdom, that would seem to suggest picking the Colts against the spread. After all, the Jets are very bad and their ratings are very bad (28th overall).
