THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4
NEW YORK JETS @ INDIANAPOLIS COLTS
Here are my best 6 pack of props for the Thursday night NFL game between the JETS & COLTS.
-175 NY JETS +14.5
Look, we know the Jets had 54 hung on them two weeks ago against the Patriots but came back last week and showed some guts in pulling out a straight up win as a 10 point underdog against Cincinnati. The Colts need this game badly and I fully expect them to win but no way should a 3-5 team be a double digit favorite against anyone.
-135 JETS ASHTYN DAVIS OVER 4.5 TACKLES
Since being activated four weeks ago Davis has gone for 5 tackles or more in two of the last three weeks. He had 11 versus New England two games ago.
+125 COLTS DEFOREST BUCKNER WILL RECORD AT LEAST 1 SACK
Buckner has been a force since being traded from the 49ers. He has 4 this season and should be able to get to QB Mike White at least once.
-115 COLTS J TAYLOR OVER 100.5 RUSHING & RECEIVING YARDS COMBINED
Taylor has been on a tear of late going for over 110 yards combined in 5 straight contests and the Jets despite winning last week are still 28th in the league in total defense.
+120 COLTS MICHAEL PITTMAN OVER 5.5 RECEPTIONS
Pittman leads the Colts in receptions and targets (45 rec, 65 targets). Plus, he had a season high 10 in last weeks loss to Tennessee.
+120 JETS J. CROWDER OVER 5.5 RECEPTIONS
Crowder had 8 last week against the Bengals and might be used as a safety blanket for underneath throws from Mike White if he's in trouble or on long 3rd downs.
