BOSTON (CBS) — It was an Over/Under Tuesday night on The Adam Jones Show’s “Game of Jones.”
Rich Keefe hit Jones with the following questions, ranging from the Patriots’ rush attack to the NBA Finals:READ MORE: Peak Tick Season Is Here
Number of yards for Patriots’ leading rusher this season: Over/Under 750 yards
“Here is why I felt they needed a running back. I don’t love the options back there this year; I don’t know how trustworthy they are to hold up for an entire year,” said Jones, surprised to find out LeGarrette Blount rushed for 703 yards last season. “I don’t see them topping that number and I think running back remains a need for this team. The leading rusher, I would guess would be Blount, would be under 750 yards, but maybe he’ll be closer than I’m giving him credit for.”
Combined points for LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in Game 6: Over/Under 62 points
“I’ll say under because I expect Cleveland to lose,” said Jones. “There are a lot of different ways you could get there — LeBron could drop another 40 point game and Kyrie chips in 20 and change and you’re over, but I expect Cleveland to lose. I think Draymond Green’s defense makes a big difference, and if Golden State is going to finish this thing up in in Cleveland, if they’re both going off for 30 points or 40-20, some combination, that doesn’t sound like a winning combination.”READ MORE: Buzzy Cohen On Guest Hosting 'Jeopardy!'

Combined points and rebounds for Kevin Love in Game 6: Over/Under 15
“I’m going over. Don’t call me a glass-half-empty kind of guy. I’m very positive on Kevin Love,” said Jones. “Do you like how I’m under on LeBron and Kyrie and over on Love? Maybe he lucks his way into 6-7 rebounds and barely inches his way on that 15 total. I say he does it; i think the pendulum has swung way too far on him where he’s a garbage player and soft. I say he’s over that very low bar you set for him.”
How many college seniors will be drafted in lottery: Over/Under 1.5
“Under. The only senior in the lottery is Buddy Hield. Is Denzel Valentine going to go in the lottery?,” wondered Jones, with Keefe offering up UNC’s Brice Johnson. “I don’t see it happening. Hield is the only lock and I don’t see another senior getting in there. The one I probably like the next most is [Baylor’s] Taurean Prince.”

“Under. You could have thrown out any number and I would have said under. The guy can’t hit,” Jones said of Vazquez, who is batting .215 after Tuesday night’s loss.
