Thursday Night Football Picks: Mims bets the Jets at Colts, with Jonathan Taylor, Carson Wentz props
The NFL Thursday Night Football game has New York Jets playing the Indianapolis Colts. The numbers are Colts -10.5 with a total of 46.5. The money line is Colts -550 & Jets +400. Colts are the home team.
60% of the action is on the Jets. 63% of the public like the game over.
Trends: The over is 4-1 in the last 5 Colts game. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 Jets games.
Prop Action: Jonathan Taylor over 82.5 rushing yardage. The price is -110. He goes over. Carson Wentz under 36.5 passing attempts. He goes under. I would lay the 110.
Coaching Match Up: Frank Reich over Robert Saleh.
My take on the game: The Jets are 0-4 on the road. Colts need this game to stay in the playoff picture. They should lean on Taylor and take the pressure off Wentz. When Wentz starts turning the ball over as he did last week, he tends to implode if asked to do too much. Colts are clearly better than the Jets. Both teams are allowing great deal of points. That trend continues. Colts with money line on a short week and over 46.5.
