Betting on TNF Player Props
There are legal NFL odds for the game, along with hundreds of prop bets on the players and game outcomes. With the two QBs being in their first year with each franchise, there are props for their projected stats for the night.
Who Will Have More Passing Yards
- Russell Wilson -115
- Matt Ryan -115
Over his first four games in Denver, Wilson has thrown for a total of 980 yards, which is the seventh least total yards by any QB that has played four games in 2022. Even with the 1-3 record, Matt Ryan is currently the fourth-leading passer with 1,125 total yards and has odds at Bovada sportsbook for all of his TNF totals.
Matt Ryan’s Total Passing Yards
- Over 229.5 Yards -115
- Under 229.5 -115
Matt Ryan’s Total TDs
- Over 1.5 +145
- Under 1.5 -190
Matt Ryan’s Total Pass Attempts
- Over 32.5 -145
- Under 32.5 +110
Even though Ryan has averaged more yards per game than his projected total, the Bronco’s defense has been locked in against passing and they have not allowed a QB to throw for over 211 in a single game in 2022. His odds for pass attempts are more favorable for legal sports betting because the veteran has averaged 38.5 attempts per game in 2022.
Passing Yards by QBs Facing Denver
- Week 1 – Geno Smith 195 Yards / 2 TDs
- Week 2 – Davis Mills 177 Yards / 0 TDs
- Week 3 – Jimmy Garoppolo 211 Yards / 1 TD
- Week 4 – Derek Carr 188 Yards / 0 TDs
With the Colts missing Jonathan Taylor with an ankle injury, and the Broncos playing their first game with Javonte Williams out for the season, both teams are going to have to rely on passing the football. These injured RBs could always lead to each QB having more rush attempts and there are odds for each player’s total.
Matt Ryan’s Total Rush Yards
- Over 1.5 -130
- Under 1.5 +100
Russell Wilson’s Total Rush Yards
- Over 12.5 -120
- Under 12.5 -110
Both QBs have averaged more rush yards per game than their total but Matt Ryan’s is still not favorable. Ryan ran for -4 yards in week four and zero yards in week two. Russell Wilson has 13 total rush attempts for the season with 51 total yards, averaging 12.75 yards per game.
Without Williams and Melvin Gordon averaging a fumble a game, Wilson could up his rush attempts and hit the over on this prop for TNF.
