Over/Under: How Many Touchdown Passes For Garoppolo This Season?

BOSTON (CBS) — It was an Over/Under Tuesday on The Adam Jones Show’s “Game Of Jones,” with a lot of focus on football.

Rich Keefe hit Adam Jones with a number of Over/Unders, from Jimmy Garoppolo’s touchdown passes to the number of catches Miami’s top receiver will have this weekend. Play along with the questions below, and listen to the full segment in the podcast:

Touchdown passes for Jimmy Garoppolo this season: Over/Under 6.5 touchdowns

“It’s tough when he’s starting with just the one [against Arizona]. But I think he gets it going; the defenses he’s going against aren’t slouches but they should be easier, I think, than Arizona. Maybe they ask him to throw it a little bit more than they did against Arizona,” said Jones. “I’ll take the over; I’m buying in a little bit. Give me two touchdowns in each of the next three games, and that gives you seven.”

Number of sacks for Chris Long: Over/Under 9.5 sacks

“Under. I don’t guarantee that he’s going to stay healthy or even get a ton of reps once Rob Ninkovich comes back. I don’t even know if he’d get there if he played all 16 games and was the starter,” said Jones. “He looked great in the preseason and he looked very good on Sunday night.”

How many catches for Jarvis Landry vs. Patriots: Over/Under 5.5 catches

“I wish I knew who was covering him. If it’s Logan Ryan, it’s over. If it’s Malcolm Butler, it’s probably under,” said Jones. “My guess is, the way the Patriots kind of defend things is Butler usually gets the Darrelle Revis treatment, where he gets the lesser guy and is all by himself, where Ryan gets a little more help with the better guy. I think that means we’ll see Ryan on him more than Butler, maybe not exclusively, but more. If it’s a lot of Logan Ryan, it will be over.”

How many ACC wins will Boston College Football have this season: Over/Under 0.5 wins

“I’m going to go over. They’ve only played one ACC game so far and it was competitive. They should have beat Georgia Tech,” said Jones. “The ACC is pretty top-heavy; Florida State, Clemson, Louisville. But BC has Virginia Tech this weekend and they looked like garbage Saturday night against Tennessee. [BC] gets Syracuse later, NC State, and Wake Forest to finish the year. They should win one of those games.”

Red Sox win total for season: Over/Under 93.5 wins

“I think they’re going to go over. The way they’re playing right now, aside from this start from Drew Pomeranz and the last one from Clay Buchholz, their starters keep them in the game every night and their offense is locked in,” said Jones. “I think they’re going over the 93.5.”
