Rams vs. Colts best NFL prop bets for Week 4

The Rams are putting a lot on the shoulder of Matthew Stafford and their young receivers which means value in the prop market in Week 4.

After their overtime win in Week 3 the Indianapolis Colts are 2-1, but I’m not sure anyone expects that to last. As long as the Rams can protect Matthew Stafford a little better this week, he could get LA right back into the win column and to 2-2. 

For Stafford to do that he’ll need some help on offense, not just from a banged up offensive line, but from his suddenly star wide receivers. Let’s back them in our prop bets this week.

Best NFL Prop Bets for Rams vs. Colts

  • Tutu Atwell long reception over 20.5 yards
  • Puka Nacua OVER 6.5 receptions
  • Zack Moss OVER 16.5 rushing attempts

Tutu Atwell long reception over 20.5 yards

Not only are the Rams two breakout receivers very good, they also already have clearly defined roles. Atwell is the big play guy and he is averaging 14.5 yards per reception. Atwell has also received seven targets of 20+ air yards in three games. He has hauled in three of those and is 7-10 on targets in the intermediate part of the field. Atwell is also averaging 3.6 yards after the catch per reception. 

Puka Nacua OVER 6.5 receptions

The Bengals seemed to figure out Nakua a bit last week. He was held in check until late in the fourth quarter, but still saw seven targets and caught five. He would have been targeted more if Stafford could have been kept upright. 

Nakua’s role in this offense is to be the possession receiver. He is averaging 11.3 yards per reception and has already caught 30 of 42 targets. 

Zack Moss OVER 16.5 rushing attempts

The Colts are very committed to running the ball. Last week, Moss got 30 carries and wasn’t particularly efficient. He finished with 122 yards which is 4.1 per carry. Moss will be the featured back for Indy again and I expect them to remain committed to the run. In two games, Moss has 48 carries. 

The Rams defense is also top 10 in yards per completion allowed, so the run-game might be the best way to beat LA.
