Thursday Night is coming and will be here before we know it. This week’s feature is a matchup between woeful Jacksonville traveling out-of-division and out-of-town to Cincinnati. The Bengals are in 1st place in their division. Thursday’s game is leaning to Cincinnati (-7.5) and the total sits at a tidy 46.5. You can play those all you want, but I want to dive deep into more fun ways to win some serious money. Let’s check out a few of my favorite props in this game.
Ja’Marr Chase is coming off a two-touchdown game against Pittsburgh and the odds reflect that. He is installed at -120 to score again. If I am going to play an anytime touchdown scorer, I want some of that plus-money. Tee Higgins has scores in two of the three games this season and he stands at +110 (if he’s available). DJ Chark is worth a shot at +240 here too. If you are looking for a possible dark horse take a gander at Jamal Agnew for the Jags. That man already has two special teams touchdowns and one in each of the last two games. He is a smooth +1600.
Wildcards aside, I am looking to play the odds that both these teams will score multiple touchdowns. I like Chase and Higgins here to score but let’s keep building; if we add Trevor’s favorite target Marvin Jones into the equation, our 3-man just went to +1385. Let’s also add Trevor’s 2nd favorite target DJ Chark to our 4-man parlay and now it stands at +6977. Remember Trevor has thrown 5TDs this season and those two guys have four of them. I’ll play that 4-man anytime TD scorer for some pop. Wanna get nuts? Add Jamal Agnew for +41975 odds. If you got a spare $5 bill, that’s a possible $2,228.08 payout. Watch those injury reports.
I love this bet because Trevor Lawrence WILL throw another interception. The bad news is that prop sits at -188 and that’s a little too much juice for the body. However, Joe Burrow’s number is +124. The Jaguars have only picked off one pass this season but Joe Burrow has been a little sloppy at times with the ball and has thrown 4 interceptions in the past two games. I think one breaks for Jaguars on Thursday Night Football and Joe throws a duck. If your place of wager will allow you to parlay both QBs to throw a pick… evil grin emoji.
It is brass tax talking time. The Bengals have played three of the top 13 defenses in the league in yardage allowed. Luckily, Jacksonville comes in off a short week and they are 29th in the league in yards allowed per game and 28th in points allowed per game (30.3). Despite a tough road early for the Bengals, they still managed to score 27, 17 and 24 points respectively. We will hit this number together fam at -104.
Can we talk about the Bengals defense a little bit? They are quietly, really good. The Bengals enter this game 6th in the NFL in points allowed per game (18.0). Your Bengals are also coming into this game 8th in yards allowed per game (317.0). They are 12th in turnovers forced and 6th in NET punting. Cincinnati is second in punts downed inside the twenty, just one behind the league leader San Francisco. Jacksonville is already a meager 27th in scoring (17.7) and that includes TWO special teams touchdowns. The math makes sense to me. The Jaguars are going under that 18.5 and it might not be close for a -106 good value.
