The Indianapolis Colts will look to win their second consecutive game in Week 5 when they take on the electric Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. 

Baltimore is a 6.5-point favorite at home in this matchup, and it’s not surprising given the Colts’ slow start to the season. 

Jackson always makes things interesting for bettors from a player props perspective, so here are my three best prop bets, with all odds via WynnBET Sportsbook, for Monday Night Football. 

Jonathan Taylor OVER 59.5 Rushing Yards (-125)

The Ravens have a solid run defense (allowing just 4.1 yards per carry), but Taylor is coming off the best game of his 2021 season and I think the Colts try to ride the hot hand to a win on Monday. 

Baltimore’s offense is much more lethal than Indianapolis’ attack, so establishing the run will be important for Frank Reich and Carson Wentz. Taylor has 26 carries for 167 yards and a score over the past two weeks including 103 yards in the win over the Miami Dolphins. 

I like Reich to get his bellcow going early and often to try and stay in this one. 

Marquise Brown OVER 54.5 Receiving Yards (-125)

Other than his dropped-filled Week 3, Marquise Brown has easily hit the over on this number in every other game this season. 

He’s caught a touchdown in three of his four games this season, and he’s averaging a career-high 17.2 yards per reception. 

Jackson has looked to Brown all year as his top option on the outside and I don’t expect that to change against Indy.

Mo Alie-Cox Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+550)

The Colts have struggled mightily this year in the red zone, but they found some success in Week 4 by going to tight end Mo Alie-Cox. 

The veteran tight end caught a pair of touchdowns from Carson Wentz, and he may be worth a shot at +550 odds to find the end zone again in Week 5. 

The Ravens have allowed three scores to tight ends this season, which is tied for the second-most in the NFL. It’s worth a look at the current odds.
