In Week 6, the Indianapolis Colts will play the Jacksonville Jaguars for the second time this season. Here are the best prop bets for the game.
The Indianapolis Colts are entering Week 6 at 2-2-1 after recording an ugly win over the Denver Broncos in Week 5 on Thursday Night Football. Although Indy’s play has been hard to watch, the team is only second in the AFC South, a game behind the Tennessee Titans. This is a bit surprising because Indy has played three divisional games, but hasn’t won any. That could change on Sunday.
The Colts will be taking on the Jacksonville Jaguars for the second time this season. The teams first met this year back in Week 2 and the Jaguars embarrassed Indy, winning 24-0. Indianapolis will be looking to avenge that loss and Indy also tries to get its offense rolling. With the Indianapolis offense under the microscope, here are some intriguing prop bets.
Michael Pittman Jr. prop bets
Take the under on Pittman Jr’s yardage total (66.5, -115). As Matt Ryan has gotten more comfortable in the pocket (at least slightly), it’s clear he’s established a rapport with rookie Alec Pierce. When Ryan needs to force-feed, Pierce is the direction he looks, especially whenever he’s in danger. Betting on another quiet game from Pittman feels like the maneuver here.
Alec Pierce prop bets
…which brings us to Pierce himself. We’re going to keep hammering Pierce’s anytime touchdown number until he actually breaks the plane. It feels like it’s getting closer every week. This time, his number is +400. If you’re feeling extra daring, first and last touchdown are both +2200.
Jonathan Taylor prop bets
JT28 was back at practice this week, creating difficult questions for fantasy managers everywhere. If you believe in him to sniff the end zone not once, but twice in his first week back, those odds are +333. Maybe you’d rather go with the safer bet? Phillip Lindsay anytime TDs are +190.
