INDIANAPOLIS – Carson Wentz and the Indianapolis Colts have a seemingly favorable matchup against the New York Jets on Thursday night.
Carson Wentz Passing Yards: O/U 243.5
Carson Wentz has been solid this season at not turning the ball over as he only has three interceptions, but this comes at the price of playing more conservatively. Wentz has thrown for over 240 years just three times in eight games and has not done so in any of the past three weeks.
However, NFL betting sites have his total set at a spot that shows expected improvement.
Carson Wentz Passing Yards Total
- OVER 243.5 -115
- UNDER 243.5 -115
The New York Jets allow the sixth-most passing yards per game with 275.3 and have allowed their opposing quarterbacks to reach this number in four straight games. Something has to give in this spot, either Wentz will pick apart the New York defense like every other QB or he’ll continue to throw for less than the set number as he’s done five times in the last six weeks.
Carson Wentz Passing Completions: O/U 21.5
Wentz is averaging 21.0 completions on the season but has only reached the number once in the past three weeks. Those betting on the NFL can find his total set above his season average.
Carson Wentz Completions Total
- OVER 21.5 -115
- UNDER 21.5 -115
The Colts have been drawing up passing plays less frequently as of late as Wentz had just 20 and 26 passing attempts prior to their overtime game against the Titans in comparison to the 34.6 average attempts per game in the team’s first five games of the season.
New York has allowed six of their seven opponents to complete at least 21 passes this season which makes it another scenario in which both sides trend poorly, but one side will ultimately need to prevail.
Carson Wentz Passing Touchdowns: O/U 1.5
The Colts have seen their starting quarterback throw for multiple touchdowns in each of the last five games. While there is a bit of juice on the OVER, it seems well worth it.
Carson Wentz Passing Touchdowns
- OVER 1.5 -145
- UNDER 1.5 +110
Getting a player who’s had 2+ touchdowns five weeks in a row against a defense that’s the fifth-worst against the pass just sets up for another multi-touchdown performance out of Wentz. Those interested in watching the game can tune in to NFL Network or FOX at 8:20 p.m. EST on Thursday.
