After quarterback Mike White lit the world on fire for the New York Jets in Week 8 with over 400 passing yards, can this 2-5 Jets team be stopped?

OK, there is sarcasm there, but what a performance.

On the other side, the Indianapolis Colts, who are hosting the Thursday Night Football matchup between the two, lost 34-31 against the Tennessee Titans, which included quarterback Carson Wentz’s first two interceptions of the season, one of those a pick-six. The Colts are now 3-5.

Wentz has been conservative and handled the ball well, but the team has struggled to win games.

The Jets have been a bit of a disaster, but their two wins have come against the Titans and Cincinnati Bengals.

With all of the preamble out of the way, who will win Thursday Night Football?

It’s time to get those Connecticut sports betting wagers in before kickoff.

Jets odds to win Thursday Night Football

At both SugarHouse and FanDuel, the Jets are 10.5-point road dogs this week. The total is also set at 46 on SugarHouse and 46.5 on FanDuel.

It seems these books are not buying the Mike White Experience.

While exciting, I’m not someone who is either. Sure, this could be the massive breakout a career backup could be having, but it should come back to earth this week.

Pro Football Focus ranks the Colts as the 11th overall defense in the league. However, both teams are not great on offense, with the Colts ranking 24th and the Jets 30th, so when you’re thinking about making an NFL betting wager, these two teams aren’t exciting.

The Jets scored 34 last week but lost to the New England Patriots by more than 40 the week before.

White played well, completing over 80% of his passes for three touchdowns, but he did have two interceptions and his completion percentage was helped mightily by his 4.2 average depth of target.

All game long White depended on running back Michael Carter.

It’s also not looking good once again for wide receiver Corey Davis to suit up as he continues to battle a hip injury.

Both teams have a solid pass rush, but it’s difficult to see the Jets performing this well offensively again.

Colts odds to win Thursday Night Football

The Colts should win on Thursday Night Football. However, on NFL betting odds, the moneyline is in the -500’s. So, we look at the spread.

This is a large spread for a team like the Colts, who have underwhelmed, especially in coverage.

However, the emergence of wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. gives Wentz a solid No. 1 option and running back Jonathan Taylor has been on a touchdown spree as of late, scoring in every game since Week 4.

The Jets do possess a savvy pass rush, especially with their defensive tackles, but they have struggled in run defense.

Jets cornerback Bryce Hall has exceeded some expectations this season. This will be a good matchup for Pittman, but this game could be taken over by Taylor running the ball 20 or more times.

Again, 10.5 is a lot of points, it seems difficult to believe White will duplicate his Week 8 performance.

If it does, then so be it. However, I’ll take the wait-and-see approach and side with the Colts at home.
