Best Bet for Colts vs Eagles: Bet on Jonathan Taylor

  • With the Philadelphia Eagles showing weakness against the run and Jonathan Taylor seemingly getting hot at just the right time, the best bet on the NFL this weekend is likely over his 85.5 rushing yards prop.
  • Bovada is offering a special bet on Jonathan Taylor this weekend that is likely to hit, with +200 odds for him to rush for at least 100 yards and score one touchdown.

INDIANAPOLIS - Online sportsbooks are offering many different prop bets on the running backs in the Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts matchup on Sunday, with particular profitability to be had when betting on Jonathan Taylor versus the Eagles' porous run defense.

Betting on Jonathan Taylor

For the first time since Week One, Jonathan Taylor ran for over 100 yards and scored a touchdown last week with a vintage performance against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Taylor ran 147 yards on 22 carriers and found the end zone. Despite that strong performance that included a 94% snap share, the second-highest of his career, Bovada has set the over/under for his rushing yards at 85.5.

Jonathan Taylor Rushing Yards Total

  • Over 85.5 Rushing Yards -115
  • Under 85.5 Rushing Yards -115

The odds provided by the popular NFL sportsbook discounts the fact that he appears to finally be healthy and that the new coaching staff may put a larger focus on feeding Jonathan Taylor more than the previous regimen.

A look at the Philadelphia Eagles' game log also clearly suggests that JT is poised for a big day, as Philadelphia has allowed 124 yards or more in five straight games.

The signings of Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh are meant to sure up the run defense, but expecting either veteran to immediately come in and help shut down Jonathan Taylor may be a pipe dream.

As such, betting the over for Jonathan Taylor's rush yards seems like a relatively safe bet against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Betting on a Jonathan Taylor Special Bet

One of the reasons Bovada is so popular is that the online sportsbook provides special bets for each game.

One such bet stands out for believers in a big outing by Jonathan Taylor.

Jonathan Taylor Special Bet at Bovada

  • Jonathan Taylor 100+ Rushing Yards & To Score a Touchdown +200

With Taylor apparently regaining his past season's form last week and the Philadelphia Eagles’ struggles stopping the run, it is likely that the former Wisconsin standout rushes for 100+ yards.

What makes that so interesting is that in his 15 career 100+ yard rushing games, Taylor has scored at least one touchdown 14 times.

Jonathan Taylor is likely to continue his breakout against the Eagles’ lackluster run defense, and getting +200 odds on the Colts star to hit 100 rushing yards and find the endzone is likely to be one of the best value bets in the entire NFL this weekend.
