🏈 THE MAIN EVENT: First team to score 21 wins?!

🔥 EXPERT PICKS: Jay and Ryan clash on tonight’s game

💪 POWER HOUR: A Free Bet drop for Colts-Broncos!

🚀 HUSTLE BOOST: Can both teams join the 20-point club? It pays +200

THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

Colts (+3) @ Broncos; Total 42

KICKOFF: 8:15 p.m. ET

KEY STATS: Week 5 starts with household-name QBs (Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson) struggling with a new franchise. These are the two lowest-scoring teams in the AFC, and neither will have its top RB: Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is week-to-week and Javonte Williams (knee) is done for the season, yielding to the butter-fingered 🧈 Melvin Gordon.

TRENDING: The Under has hit in nine straight 😲 Colts games. Denver has covered five straight at home against teams with a losing record.

BOOST: Wilson to throw 1.5+ TDs +115 ➡️ +130

EXPERT PICKS

NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher nailed his MNF plays: Under 42.5 and Jeff Wilson Over 55.5 rushing yards. What will he, PointsBet studio host Ryan Leaf and PointsBet senior editor Teddy Greenstein do for an encore?

THE BOOK

Colts +3 over Broncos (+100)
“The market is overvaluing the absence of Jonathan Taylor (who hasn’t been good!) and underrating the Colts defense, which has been perfectly solid.”
Missouri +11 over Florida (-107)
“Florida is the more rested team after coasting against Eastern Washington. But Missouri showed a resolve in its tight loss to Georgia that bodes well for this visit to The Swamp.”

THE BIG NAME

Broncos (-3) over Colts (-115)
“The best player on either team, Jonathan Taylor, is out. I like (Nyheim) Himes but not enough. Denver will shut ‘em down.”
Tennessee (-3) over LSU (-107)
“The Vols are for real. They can put points up with Hendon Hooker and Josh Heupel. Hooker called him ‘the best coach in America.’”

THE BETTOR

Mississippi State -9.5 over Arkansas (-107)
“The Hogs are down after back-to-back losses, and will QB KJ Jefferson be at full strength? Mike Leach’s crew is ready to pounce.”
Alec Pierce Over 35.5 Receiving Yards (-110)
“The young buck from (the U of) Cincinnati is earning the trust of ‘Matty Ice.’ He is averaging 70.5 receiving yards in his last two games.”

CFB GAME OF THE WEEK

TCU (-6.5) @ Kansas; Total 67.5

KICKOFF: Noon ET

KEY STATS: The Jayhawks are ranked 🎊 for the first time since 2009 and hosting ESPN’s “College GameDay” for the first time, period. Kansas remained undefeated despite not scoring in the 2nd half versus Iowa State. TCU used its talented backfield to slaughter Oklahoma, racking up 668 yards.

TRENDING: Kansas has covered eight straight, and TCU bettors are batting 1.000 (4-0) this season.

An MLB EXTRAVAGANZA

WILD THING

Where is the value in the opening round, which starts Friday?  Here is our card:

  • Mets (-180) over San Diego: What’s the cure for a late-season collapse 🏚️? The trifecta of Max Scherzer (2.29 ERA), Jacob deGrom (3.08) and Chris Bassitt (3.42).
  • Guardians (-125) over Tampa Bay: The Rays don’t shine on the road (35-46), and every game will take place in chilly Cleveland 🥶. The Guardians make solid contact, ranking as the MLB’s only team with fewer than 7 whiffs per game.
  • Mariners (+140) over Toronto: Seattle went 5-2 against Toronto and has four starters 💪 with ERAs under 3.75. Relievers Andres Munoz and Paul Sewald sport tiny WHIPs.
HEISMAN EDITION

MARKET MOVERS

  • Ohio State QB CJ Stroud +125 ➡️ +150: Retreated a touch after modest stats (154 passing yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT) versus Rutgers.
  • Alabama QB Bryce Young +500 ➡️+800: How is the shoulder?! Nick Saban is being coy.
  • USC QB Caleb Williams +650 ➡️ +450: Rebounded from stinker at Oregon State. Massive test comes Oct. 15 at Utah.
  • Tennessee QB Hendon Hooker +1700 ➡️ +1100: Surged from +5000 by guiding the Vols to a 4-0 start thanks to zero picks and 175 rushing yards.
  • Michigan RB Blake Corum +4000 ➡️ +1300: Has overtaken JJ McCarthy (100/1) as team’s top threat by becoming first in FBS to crack 10 rushing TDs.
  • K-State QB Adrian Martinez +10000 ➡️+2500: Emerging from four frosty, error-prone seasons at Nebraska. Opened at 175/1.
