Prop #1: Rodgers Will Double Down On TD Passes
It’s true that the Colts are the best pass defense that Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will face this season. Indy is #2 in the league at stopping the pass (198.7 yards per game) and are tied for second in TD passes allowed per game (1.2).

It’s also true that the Colts haven’t seen a QB with the capabilities of Rodgers this season. He’s first in the NFL in TD pass percentage (8.3) and second in the league in TD passes (26).
It’s tempting to go with the value and the Colts but Rodgers is too talented to bet against.
Pick: Aaron Rodgers over 1.5 touchdown passes (-200), 1 unit
Taylor Out Of Favor
When Marlon Mack was lost for the season, circumstances seemed to be aligning perfectly for rookie Jonathan Taylor. But as the season wears on, the Colts appear to be growing wary of giving him the ball.

— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) November 13, 2020
Taylor carried the ball 26 times in a Week 2 win over Minnesota. He’s been handed the rock just 24 times in total over the past three games and gained 61 yards. His single-game high for rushing yardage over these three contests is 27 yards.
Pick: Jonathan Taylor under 34.5 yards rushing (-112), 1 unit.

Who Are the Best Bets To Score a Touchdown?
Nyheim Hines has scored four of his six touchdowns this season over the past three games. He’s becoming a go-to option for the Colts in the red zone.
Three of his four TDs were pass receptions. All three of them were of a distance of 13 yards or more, showing that Hines can make tacklers miss.
All Nyheim Hines does is catch TDs and land front flips. 🤸♂️

Packers wideout Davante Adams is on a four-game TD-scoring streak. He’s scored seven times over the course of those four games.
Rodgers has targeted Adams 51 times during his hot streak, so you know he’ll be looking for Adams a lot.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling’s 78-yard receiving TD was the longest by a Packers player since Jordy Nelson’s 80-yard TD in Week 2, 2014 vs the Jets

— NFL Research (@NFLResearch) November 15, 2020
Marquez Valdes-Scantling leads the NFL in yards per reception (21.0). He’s caught 22 balls and four of them went for TDs.
Over the past three games, Valdes-Scantling snared seven passes and three were TDs.
- Nyheim Hines anytime TD (+125), 1 unit
