Happy Thursday Night Football friends and fellow degenerates. As the NFL season winds down we have to wish TNF a farewell as this gem of a matchup will be the final game played on Thursday night this season. While Ive enjoyed this prop endeavor I have never enjoyed TNF and I cant say Ill miss it in the final 2 weeks of the season. Anyway on to the thrilling matchup that pits the 3-10 Indianapolis Colts against the 4-9 Denver Broncos. If this doesn’t get you all hot and bothered like Warren Sapp at a sex toy shop I dont know what will. Normally I would ask question about the matchup…for this shit show all I say is HOW THE FUCK IS DENVER A ROAD FAVORITE?!
Now lets dive into the matchup and identify the aforementioned angles to get you paid on Thursday Night Football.

Thursday Night Football Prop Bets – Five Ways to Get Paid
1. Frank Gore Under 56.5 Rushing Yards (-110)
Frank Gore just carried the ball 36 times 4 days ago!!!! If that isnt reason enough to fade the old man this week then how bout I remind you that the Broncos still have the #2 Run defense in the league. Please dont over think this one, under is the call.
2. Demaryius Thomas Over 65.5 Receiving Yards (-110) & 3. Over 5.5 Receptions (+100)
The man is averaging ~10 targets per game over his last 6 and seems to be a favorite of Seimian. Sprinkle in the fact that the Colts are #30 against the pass according to DVOA and what do you have? Over!!!
4. Total Sacks Over 5 (-120)
In another edition of Ryan takes the over and tells us to not over think it…These two teams have combined to give up 93 sacks in 13 games, 93!!!! For those with out a calculator that is ~7.15 per game. Yeah I dont care that both teams have mediocre to bad pass rushes, its much easier to swim down stream if you know what i mean. Over, Over and more Over.
5. Jack Doyle Over 39.5 Receiving Yards (-110)
Doyle has struggled over his last two games on the road(@JAX & @BUF in the snow). Now he returns home to face a shockingly bad Denver defense against the TE(25th). I expect Doyle to be the #1 target tonight as Hilton will most likely get shut down by Chris Harris.
Good luck and Let it Ride!!!
