Cardinals vs Colts Week 16 Prop Bets | Kyler Murray, Jonathan Taylor, & More

Fresh off a huge win against the conference-leading Patriots, the Indianapolis Colts (8-6) will head to Phoenix on Christmas Day to take on the Arizona Cardinals (10-4).

Both teams still have a lot to play for. The Colts are still in the hunt for the AFC South, while the Cardinals are fighting for home field advantage in the NFC.

Last week, Jonathan Taylor dominated in the run game en route to a win over the Patriots, while Carson Wentz and the Colts passing offense struggled mightily.

Kyler Murray and the Cardinals, on the other hand, are coming off a rough showing overall in their surprising loss to the Detroit Lions. They’ll look to rebound this week as they continue to figure out how to deal without DeAndre Hopkins.

Let’s dig in to find the best Cardinals vs Colts prop bets for this weekend’s inter-conference battle.

Please note that all NFL gameday odds and lines are current as of 12:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, December 23.

Cardinals vs Colts Prop Bets: NFL Week 16 Prop Betting Picks

Carson Wentz: Under 209.5 Total Passing Yards (-115) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

Carson Wentz has really struggled in his last two games, combining for just 215 total passing yards. Now, two games doesn’t make a trend, but it’s the beginning of one.

I also don’t like his matchup against a Cardinals defense that is fifth-best in the league in terms of allowing passing yards to opposing quarterbacks at 224.7 yards per game.

The Colts offense is essentially the Jonathan Taylorshow at this point too, so it’s going to be hard for Wentz to even have enough opportunities to overcome the already-challenging hurdles of his recent play and his opponent.

Kyler Murray: Over 0.5 Total Interceptions (-150) at Caesars

Wager: 0.5 Unit

Kyler Murray is still great, but like Carson Wentz, he’s struggled a bit recently. He’s thrown three interceptions in his last three games since returning from injury, and he’s now thrown six interceptions in his last five games.

On the other side of the ball, the Colts lead the league in takeaways. They live on that stuff. They’re currently averaging 1.2 interceptions per game on the season and will be circling like sharks whenever Murray drops back to pass without Hopkins to look for.

Jonathan Taylor: Over 106.5 Total Rushing Yards (-115) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

I don’t generally like going over when we’re talking 100-plus yards, but I’m willing to make an exception for 2021 Jonthan Taylor. He’s gone over 100 yards five times in his last six games and has seen a big increase in rushing attempts during that span.

The Colts will again lean on Taylor this week, especially since the Cardinals are a middling team in terms of limiting opposing rushing attacks and allow an average of 93.9 yards per game. That’s not 100, but Arizona has allowed multiple 100-plus yard games in order to get to that average.

Bank on Taylor to hit this prop and make this your NFL bet of the day.

Michael Pittman: Under 57.5 Total Receiving Yards (-115) at Caesars

Wager: 0.5 Unit

Michael Pittman is Indy’s best receiver, but that doesn’t mean a whole lot these days. Pittman has only topped 55 yards once in his last four games and has only seen an average of 6.5 targets per game over that span.

The Cardinals are also one of the better teams in the league in terms of limiting yardage allowed to opposing receivers. Pittman will be Arizona’s main focus in the passing game, and they should be able to limit the damage he does.

NFL Betting News

  • Early money slightly leaning towards the over in the 49ers-Rams matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the NFC Championship Game matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 46 points has attracted 55% of the bets and 60% of the money thus far. Much moreso than the AFC Championship Game, the betting splits on the point spread and total in this game are much more evenly split, so the sportsbook does not have too much liability on either at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Los Angeles's -170 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 70% of the money.

  • Early bettors give slight lean to the Rams over the 49ers

    Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Los Angeles Rams are getting slightly more betting attention in their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Los Angeles's -3.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Bettors are clearly torn in this matchup considering the Rams have arguably been playing better football through the first two playoff games, while the 49ers have won six consecutive games against the Rams, including a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory in Los Angeles.

  • Early money more than 4/1 on the over in the Bengals-Chiefs matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's over/under in the matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 54.5 points has attracted 75% of the bets and 85% of the money thus far. At this point, the sportsbook has big liability to the Chiefs point spread and the over in this matchup, as their most ideal scenario would be a Bengals cover in a low-scoring game at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Kansas City's -335 moneyline odds have attracted 58% of the bets and 61% of the money.

    CIN vs. KC Game Page

  • Early money 3/1 on the Chiefs over the Bengals

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs, as the majority of the action is backing the favored Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Kansas City's -7 point spread has received 61% of the bets and 76% of the handle thus far. Cincinnati is shaping up to be the biggest need of any side or any total this weekend, as the public seems to be enamored with the Chiefs after their thrilling Divisional Round win over Buffalo.

  • 49ers-Rams over/under reaches lowest number of the week

    After another line movement, the over/under for the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams has reached its lowest total of the week.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the 49ers-Rams over/under on Sunday night was posted at 47.5 points. It was quickly bet down to 46.5 in less than 24 hours. However, it has once again moved toward the under, and now currently sits at 46 points. Given that there has not yet been buyback on the over, it is extremely unlikely we see the total get back to anywhere close to the 47.5 points it opened at.
