After an exciting matchup last week on Thursday Night Football, this one does not initially impress at face value. The New York Jets will be facing the Indianapolis Colts. This is one of those matchups where putting a bit of money on the game is needed to raise engagement, so let’s look at where the best place to put your money is. The following Jets vs. Colts NFL betting picks preview will provide the current odds, betting trends, and best NFL bets for the Week 9 Thursday Night Football matchup.
NFL Best Bets & Odds: Week 9 Thursday Night Football
Quarterbacks can come from anywhere. The Jets have used a first-round pick on a quarterback this season, yet the performance of the year came from fourth-year backup Mike White, who passed for over 400 yards last week. The main reason fans will be watching this game tonight will be to see if White can do it again. While nobody really expects the Jets to win this game, there is a chance White can make a little magic yet again.
The Colts, on the other hand, are coming off a game they could not afford to lose. Carson Wentz had an embarrassing performance down the stretch, and Indianapolis will now be in must-win mode for the rest of the season to have a shot at the playoffs. Their defense has playmakers, but they have had too many lapses. The offense lacks elite threats and would have benefited from trading for a wide receiver at the trade deadline. They now must trust Wentz can make the players around him better, as they have no other choice.

Jets vs. Colts NFL Best Bet
We are using the new Awesemo NFL Betting Model to figure out what the best bet for Thursday Night Football is tonight. According to the model, betting game total under 46.5 is the best bet to place, giving it an 8.0% ROI, which is one of only two positive game bets. The other is betting the Colts spread, as the model projects them to win by 12.3 points.
The Colts want to run the football, which they should be able to do. Not only is that a smart way to attacking the Jets, but if they can go on long scoring drives, it would take a ton of time off the clock. It leads to inexperienced players and coaches, like the Jets have, getting a bit impatient and taking ill-advised shots downfield. This is even more likely to be the case after they threw for 400 yards just a few days ago. This should lead to the under hitting and a Colts win tonight.
