- Jonathan Taylor has (-115) odds on both sides of his 84.5 rushing yards total.
- He has a (-120) betting line to have UNDER 18.5 carries in the contest.
- Taylor has (-275) odds to be an anytime touchdown scorer.
INDIANAPOLIS – Jonathan Taylor has been playing incredibly well as of late and legal sports betting sites have responded by setting his rushing yards total at a relatively high number.
Jonathan Taylor Rushing Yards Total
- OVER 84.5 -115
- UNDER 84.5 -115
Taylor has hit this number in three of the last four weeks while the Jets are allowing an average of 115.1 rushing yards per game to their opponents this year.
Taylor is most effective when running behind the left tackle or outside of him. He’s averaging 9.7 yards per carry behind the left tackle and 11.8 yards per carry when bouncing it outside.
To counter, the New York Jets allow 4.2 yards per carry behind the left tackle and 4.9 yards per carry outside the LT. It seems like a perfect storm for Taylor to have a big game.
Jonathan Taylor Rushing Attempts: O/U 18.5
For as good as Taylor has been this season, the Indianapolis Colts are seemingly unwilling to give him a big share of the workload. Taylor has yet to have more than 18 carries in a game this season yet NFL betting sites set the carry total one above his season-high.
Jonathan Taylor Rushing Attempts Total
- OVER 18.5 -105
- UNDER 18.5 -120
An argument for him to set a season-high would be the 10.5-point spread the Jets are underdogs by. In a game that could be a blowout, Taylor’s usage may increase; though, Taylor only had 14 carries, the second-fewest of any game this season, when the Colts beat the Houston Texans 31-3.
Jonathan Taylor Odds – Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Taylor has found the end zone at a high rate this season. He’s scored in each of the last five games and has done so multiple times in a pair of games as well. His odds to score a touchdown are short, but probably worth it.
Jonathan Taylor Anytime TD Scorer
- Yes -275
The Jets allow the second-most rushing touchdowns per game (1.7), trailing only the Texans. The matchup couldn’t be much better for Taylor and that is why the odds are as short as they are.
