BOSTON (CBS) – It was an Over/Under Tuesday night on The Adam Jones Show’s “Game of Jones.”
In this latest edition, Adam Jones gives his take on the following topics:
Combined Touchdowns for Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker vs. Patriots: 1.5 touchdowns
“I’ll take the over, and I would have taken the over if it was just Brandon Marshall,” said Jones. “It’s been a big-time bounce back season [for Marshall]. He is healthy and out of that awful, terrible situation in Chicago. He is a matchup nightmare and they use him in a variety of different spots on the field. I think he has a big, big game against the Patriots’ secondary on Sunday. I wouldn’t be surprised if he, by himself, is in the end zone a couple of times.”
Marshall is averaging 102.2 receiving yards per game this season and has four straight 100-yard games. He’s eighth in the NFL with four touchdowns this season. Decker also has four receiving touchdowns for the season heading into Week 7 against New England.
Rushing Yards for Chris Ivory vs. Patriots: 100 yards
“I think the Patriots keep him under. Acknowledging that he’s had good games against the Patriots, I always believe they can scheme it up to stop the run, especially against a guy who relatively predictable in how they want to run him,” said Jones. “I’ll say under, mostly because the scoreboard is going to dictate how much the Jets can run. I think they’ll have to throw to stay in it, so that’s why I think Ivory is under 100 yards.”
Ivory ranks first in the NFL with 115 rushing yards per game and has 312 rushing yards in his last two games. He rushed for 160 yards and a touchdown in two games against the Patriots last season.
Games for Cubs-Mets NLCS: 5.5 games
(Answer was given prior to the Mets winning Game 3)
“Over; the Cubs will win a couple of games. I would have said the same thing about Toronto but it looks like that series is just about lost after they had [Game 4] handed to them.”
The Mets won Tuesday night’s Game 3, 5-2, in Chicago to take a 3-0 series lead.
How Long Will Bruins’ Point Streak Last: 3.5 games
“Under, but I think they win [Wednesday against the Flyers]. It gets to three and then after that, I think they’ll drop a game.”

Games Played By Rookie Terry Rozier for Celtics: 41 games
“I’m going to say over. I’m not high on the pick… but I think he plays in more than 41 games,” said Jones. “He’s going to play a similar role to Phil Pressey. The last two years, and they were less talented Celtics teams, Pressey played in 75 games and 50 games… I don’t think [Rozier will] make a huge impact this year, but he’ll work his way into some blowouts. He’ll have more games with the Celtics than the Red Claws.”
