The NFL's Week 9 slate kicks off with a Thursday Night Football clash between the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts.

Here's three of the best prop bets for this TNF showdown, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Jets vs Colts TNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Jonathan Taylor - Rushing Yards: Over 83.5 (-110)

Jonathan Taylor has looked great for the Colts this season, rushing for at least 100 yards in three of his last five games. He gets a favorable matchup in Week 9 against a Jets defense that's surrendering 115.1 rushing yards per game (18th). With FanDuel Sportsbook favoring the Colts by 10.5 points, the game script should favor a scenario that sees Taylor touching the ball a lot tonight. He's also averaging 81.1 rushing yards per game, so it's tough to see how New York will be able to contain him tonight.

2. Michael Carter - Receiving Yards: Over 37.5 (-110)

Michael Carter had his best game of the season last week, finishing with 172 total yards from scrimmage and a touchdown. Of those yards, 95 of them came from 9 receptions. With the game script pointing to the Jets trailing, the run game could be abandoned early on. That means Carter could be heavily targeted once again. He has a whopping 23 targets over his last two games, recording 162 yards on 17 receptions. Considering how Jets QB Mike White attempted 45 passes last week, it could be another busy game for the rookie running back.

3. Carson Wentz - Passing Yards: Over 240.5 (-110)

A pair of Carson Wentz interceptions cost the Colts a potential victory over the Tennessee Titans in Week 8. Now, Wentz will get the opportunity to rebound against the Jets. Fortunately for him, New York has given up an average of 340.7 passing yards over their last three games — the most in the NFL during that span. Opposing quarterbacks have also thrown for at least 250 passing yards in each of the Jets' last four games. While Wentz hasn't hit the over since Week 5, New York is just too bad for him not to have a bounce-back game in primetime.
