Indianapolis Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos Denver
Pick - PROP
Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos Alec Pierce o34.5 receiving yards (-101)

The former Cincinnati Bearcat has stepped into a bigger role within this offense the past two weeks, snatching three of five targets for 61 yards vs. Kansas City and catching six of eight balls his way for 80 yards in the loss to Tennessee last Sunday. Pierce had his progress slowed by a concussion that held him out of Week 2’s shutout loss at Jacksonville but ever since getting back on the field, he’s gained the trust of his veteran quarterback.

Indianapolis Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos Denver
Pick - PROP
Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos Matt Ryan o0.5 interceptions thrown (-120)

With Jonathan Taylor likely not playing on Thursday, Colts QB will likely be forced to throw a ton of passes against the Broncos. He's been relatively pass-happy to open the season anyway and has already been picked off five times. That trend should continue at Mile High.

Indianapolis Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos Denver
Pick - PROP
Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos Alec Pierce o34.5 receiving yards (-101)

One of the beneficiaries of Matt Ryan's increased passing volume is wideout Alec Pierce, who appears to be the veteran QBs No. 2 option in the passing game. He's hauled in 141 yards in the last two weeks alone and has a relatively modest total heading into a game that could feature a ton of passing with Jonathan Taylor potentially sidelined.

Nebraska Nebraska Cornhuskers at Rutgers Scarlet Knights Rutgers
Pick - SPREAD
RUTG Rutgers +3.0 (-107)

Ohio State and Iowa's defensive touchdowns aside, this defense hasn't given up more than 22 points yet this season. Nebraska's 35-21 win against Indiana is encouraging but the Huskers are now tasked with playing their first true road game against a team — and more particularly, a defense — that will be desperate to once again prove itself after getting gashed by Ohio State. Take the field goal with the home team looking to get back on track.

Colorado State Colorado State Rams at Nevada Wolf Pack Nevada
Pick - SPREAD
NEV Nevada -3.5 (-109)

Nevada has a decent running back in Toa Taua, who leads a unit that is 92nd in rushing offense. Taua is averaging more than four yards a carry. With CSU’s porous run defense, this is where Nevada will attack. I like Taua to lead the way and the Wolf Pack to win by a touchdown.

John Reger - Pick Made 12 hrs, 54 min ago.

UNLV UNLV Rebels at San Jose State Spartans San Jose State
Pick - SPREAD
UNLV UNLV +7.0 (-107)

This is too many points. Doug Brumfield has been too good through the air and top target Ricky White has been a true difference maker for the QB. But UNLV's ground game is where the Rebels truly shine. Louisville transfer Aidan Robbins is having a monster year, accumulating 506 yards and eight touchdowns already. This rushing attack should allow UNLV to travel well and this is simply too many points in a tight contest.

Saskatchewan Saskatchewan Roughriders at Hamilton Tiger-Cats Hamilton
Pick - SPREAD
SSK Saskatchewan +2.5 (-110)

Despite being decimated by injuries this season, the Riders have generally performed better than the Ticats and have a superior record despite playing against tougher competition in the West Divison. Sure, much has changed since Week 1, when the Riders rolled the Tabbies 30-13 at Mosaic, but I still think Saskatchewan has the better team.
