Mac Jones Over 1.5 passing TDs (+115)
"With Jones coming off the injury report heading into this game, he should be able to handle a typical workload -- and by that, I don't mean three pass attempts like he had in his previous game against the Bills in extreme weather conditions. He's thrown multiple TDs five times this year and now squares off with a team that has given up 26 passing TDs to quarterbacks on the year. The NFL high? 27 passing TDs. That's compared to eight rushing TDs, the third best mark in the league. I still expect New England to have success on the ground, but I believe they'll take the optimal path of reaching the end zone via the rookie QB's arm more times than not."
Nyheim Hines Over 16.5 receiving yards (-115)
"Jonathan Taylor has been absolutely dominant in recent weeks, but that doesn't mean Hines has been kept off the field completely. He's seen at least four targets in five of the last six games and reached at least 17 yards in every game where he had that workload. He'll be up against a Patriots defense that allows the fourth most receiving yards to running backs in the league. And frankly, the Patriots probably want the ball in Hines' hands instead of Taylor's. With such a small number, we likely only need Hines' standard four targets to hit the Over."
Kendrick Bourne Over 37.5 receiving yards (+105)
"Bourne has emerged as one of the most underrated receivers in the league during his first season in New England. His catch rate has spiked to nearly 80% despite playing with a rookie quarterback, and he has routinely made game-changing plays in the passing game over the last few weeks. He topped this total in each of the team's three games prior to the Buffalo windstorm, and he's missed the market in only two games since Week 3 if you remove the Buffalo game. Kenny Moore is likely to make things tough on Jakobi Meyers in the slot, so I expect Bourne to be a big factor in the passing attack this week."
