Props to you if you can figure out this Jacksonville Jaguars team. After looking like a squad that could go winless for much of the year, the Jags are coming off a 9-6 win over the Buffalo Bills. Is something finally clicking under head coach Urban Meyer or has the team gotten lucky? Only time will tell. The Indianapolis Colts are well-rested after their Thursday Night Football win against the New York Jets and need to keep beating lesser competition for a chance at the postseason. Here are some player props to keep an eye on when the Jaguars and Colts face off this Sunday.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts Player Prop Search Tool
Carson Wentz Over 250.5 Passing Yards
I’m done with fading Carson Wentz. I was skeptical about the passer heading into the year, as he’s struggled with injury and inconsistency for years now. However, he’s been putting together some great performances this season. Wentz can beat up on weak passing defenses, as seen with his 402-yard game against the Baltimore Ravens. And he’s facing one of the worst pass defenses in the league this week. The Jaguars are allowing 272 yards per game this season, good enough for 26th in the league. Wentz should have a field day against this shaky secondary.
Trevor Lawrence Over 236.5 Passing Yards
But hey, the Colts aren’t too much better on defense this year. What was supposed to be one of the strong suits of the Colts is quickly looking like a weakness. The Colts are allowing 260.8 passing yards per game and just allowed a third-string QB to air it out for over 300 yards without even starting the game. Even if it’s in garbage time, Lawrence has an opportunity to rack up some yards against Indy. Lawrence has already had four games in which he went over his 236.5 passing total, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes over that total fairly over. Take the rookie to get the Jags passing game going this week.
Jonathan Taylor Under 89.5 Rushing Yards
Blasphemy! How can you not hit the under after what we saw against the New York Jets? Well, let me tell you. Taylor absolutely owned the Jets on Thursday Night football, amassing 172 yards. He’s had over 100 yards four times this season, but he’s had plenty of clunkers too. He’s had five games where he didn’t even hit 71 yards, and I could see it happening again this week. The Jags are not too shabby against the run, allowing just 103.4 rushing yards per game. You might have to sweat it out, but jump on the under for Taylor.
Laviska Shenault Over 40.5 Receiving Yards
Shenault Jr. might not be the go-to receiver for the Jags, but he’s had some good performances this year. The receiver has had over 40 yards in six different games this year, and he should find some success against the disappointing Colts defense. 40.5 is a pretty low total in general, and I expect him to be able to top it once Jacksonville starts airing it out.
