5 Indianapolis Colts prop bets to make in Week 6
Odds via BetMGM; access USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds for a full list. Lines last updated Saturday at 11:05 p.m. ET.
RB Jonathan Taylor OVER 100.5 total yards (-115)
It’s been tough sledding for the rookie tailback so far on the ground, but this could be a “get right” game for him against the Bengals. Cincinnati is allowing the third-most rushing yards per game and its interior defensive line took a hit this week when DT D.J. Reader was lost for the season due to an injury. Look for the Colts to jump out to an early lead in this game and for them to ride their rookie running back to a victory. Look for Taylor to approach 22 total touches and exceed 100.5 total yards.

QB Philip Rivers OVER 20.5 completions (-106)
At this stage in his career, Rivers is not a high-volume passer. Instead, he’s transitioned into a dink-and-dunk quarterback, who is happy checking the ball underneath to his running backs and tight ends. Don’t expect him to have a huge yardage total in Week 6. But he should complete somewhere between 22-25 passes while averaging around seven yards per attempt. Take the OVER on passing completions for Rivers.
WR T.Y. Hilton’s longest reception UNDER 21.5 yards (-110)
As mentioned above, Rivers isn’t a quarterback who can drive the ball down the field very often anymore. He lacks the necessary velocity to challenge the defense vertically and he hasn’t been a great fit with Pro Bowl WR Hilton. They haven’t been able to connect much down the field and it has cost Hilton dearly when it comes to explosive plays. Take the UNDER on this bet as it would be quite the surprise if Hilton exceeds 22 yards on any one reception.
Taylor to score two or more touchdowns (+260)
If you believe this is going to be a game in which the Colts get out to an early lead, consider betting on Taylor to reach the end zone at least twice. He has scored at least one touchdown in three of the last four games, and he is Indy’s clear-cut workhorse in the red zone. Assuming the Colts move the ball up-and-down the field as we expect, Taylor is a good bet to total OVER 100 yards and score multiple touchdowns against this porous Bengals’ defense.
TE Jack Doyle first Colts TD scorer (+1200)
Typically, backup TE Mo Allie-Cox has been the team’s go-to target in the red zone. However, he will not play in Week 6 as he is dealing with an injury. That means Doyle could see more work near the end zone given his size and hands. At 12-to-1, Doyle is a strong bet to score the team’s first touchdown as the Bengals will likely be keying on Taylor.
