Indianapolis Colts vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Player Prop Picks

Neither of these AFC South foes won in week 1, and both will rightly feel that they had every chance to. However, one will most likely walk away victorious after this week, and get their season set on the right track. Let’s take a look at the player props for this matchup on Sunday afternoon in the swamp.

Jonathan Taylor over 99.5 Rushing Yards

This one seems almost too easy, right? Taylor won last year’s rushing title by an unbelievable margin of almost 600 yards over the next best runner, averaging right around 106 yards per game. He picked up right where he left off by racking up 161 yards against the Texans in Week 1, only 3 of which were in overtime.

This week, the game script will call for a lot of ground and pound offense as the Colts seek to set the tempo and control the game from wire to wire. They’ll be attempting this against a team that was saddled with the 5th worst scoring defense in the league a year ago, and they also allowed the 9th most rushing yards per game. Taylor will receive a heavy workload this weekend, and he has every ability to make good on those carries against a questionable Jacksonville front seven.

Matt Ryan over 0.5 Interceptions

The latest pairing in the Colts QB carousel just might not be made in heaven. In his Colts debut, Ryan got picked off against a Texans Defense that does not look like it’s going to be much better than last year, when they allowed the 10th-most passing yards, despite teams spending a ton of time running clock against them. Meanwhile, despite a pretty strong performance for Carson Wentz, a somewhat-improved Jaguars defense took two picks off of the ex-Eagles (and Colts) QB.

By contrast to last year’s rushing defense, the Jags actually had about a league-average pass defense by yardage per game. This offseason, they added new slot corner Darious Williams without losing any DB depth, and brought in mistake-inducing edge rusher Travon Walker with the first pick in the draft. Walker was sharp right off the bat in his debut, and his QB-pressuring presence could certainly help the Jags force more turnovers than they did a year ago.

Trevor Lawrence o1.5 passing TD

Even though he only threw for a single touchdown last week, I like Trevor Lawrence to get a couple this time out, as he looks to establish himself as a true NFL franchise player in his second year. The Jaguars had one of the splashiest offseasons of any team, and much of their roster shuffling had to do with providing Lawrence with better weapons in his second year.

Trevor should be able to everage of these new offensive skill players after taking a week to settle in and adjust. Christian Kirk already had a nice Jacksonville debut with 6 catches for 117 yards- he just needs to get in the end zone.

The Jags are likely to be playing from behind this week, and last year’s Colts were a top 10 rushing defense while sporting a below average passing defense; the stars are aligning for Trevor to throw the ball a lot of times and have a fairly prolific game through the air.
