The New York Jets are 4-2 after a win over Green Bay last week. It’s early but this is an interesting game that could go a long way to deciding the playoff picture in the AFC and if the 2-4 Denver Broncos don’t figure it out fast they could be left out. The Broncos offense has been a disaster this year, and maybe a backup quarterback can save it. Russell Wilson is out this week with a hamstring injury, and Broncos fans are saying, “Brett Rypien, let's ride.” 

A backup QB makes for some interesting prop bets, so here are my favorites. 

Best Props for Jets vs. Broncos Week 7

  • Jerry Jeudy Over 44.5 Receiving Yards (-114)
  • Latavius Murray Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+420)
  • Breece Hall Under 91.5 Rushing and Receiving Yards (-114)

Jerry Jeudy Over 44.5 Receiving Yards (-114)

Jeudy has clearly been frustrated with Russell Wilson and the Broncos offense this year. Nobody is more frustrated than Melvin Gordon, but Jeudy was caught on camera talking to Gordon last week. I'm sure they weren't saying how much they love scoring 16 points with a 245 million dollar QB. I think Jeudy will be happy that Wilson is on the sidelines and will be in Rypien’s ear about getting him the ball. Last time Rypien started was in 2020 and Jeudy had two grabs for 61 yards as a rookie. 

Latavius Murray Anytime TD (+420)

I figured that with Javonte Williams out for the year that Melvin Gordon would get those touches in the backfield, but they actually went to Latavius Murray who they signed off the street. Last week, Murray had 15 carries for 66 yards and I expect him to get the lionshare against New York. The Jets have given up seven touchdowns on the ground this year. 

Breece Hall Under 91.5 Rush+Rec Yards (-114)

The Broncos offense has been a disaster, but they are still 2-4 because of their defense. They have only given up three rushing touchdowns and 4.4 yards per carry. Breece Hall has looked great and is the focal point of the New York offense, but last week Austin Ekeler had 14 carries and 10 catches for a total of 83 yards.

It’s unlikely Hall will get that many touches and even if he does, he isn’t Austin Ekeler with the ball in his hands, at least not yet.
