Jonathan Taylor and the Indianapolis Colts clash with the red-hot New England Patriots on Saturday Night Football.

The Patriots have their playoff spot all but locked up, sitting two games ahead of the Bills in the AFC East.

The Colts, meanwhile, sit 7-6 and in the No. 6 seed in the AFC. They’re two games behind the Titans in the AFC South, although Tennessee won both head-to-head matchups this season.

There are always angles to find in the betting world, and here we’ll focus on star running back Jonathan Taylor.

Below are Taylor’s player props for Week 15 and which sportsbooks have the best value.

Jonathan Taylor Most Valuable Rushing Player Props

  • Rushing yards over: 93.5, -110 (BetMGM)
  • Rushing yards under: 95.5, -115 (Caesars)
  • Rushing attempts over: 18.5, -130 (Caesars)
  • Rushing attempts under: 19.5, -114 (FanDuel)

The Colts are expected to rely on their run game and if they are able to sustain a lead, Taylor will get plenty of carries.

He’s had 19 or more rushing attempts in three of his last four games and in two of those games he topped 30 carries. The lone game he didn’t reach 19 rushing attempts in was against the Buccaneers in which the Colts played most of the game from behind.

If the Colts get down early, he could struggle touching 19 attempts. Otherwise, there’s tremendous value on over 18.5 carries.

He also ran for over 93.5 yards in four of his last five games and six of his last eight. When he didn’t account for as many carries against Tampa Bay, he still got close, totaling 83 rushing yards.

Taylor has been one of the best backs in the league this season and the Colts will have to rely on him if they want to pull out a win over the red-hot Patriots.
