It is the best time of the season when the college football regular season is over, and we get NFL games on Saturday. That’s NFL football on four days a week, which means four opportunities each weekend to find the best NFL player props to boost your bankroll.

Here’s who we are looking towards on Saturday of Week 15.

The Prop: Mac Jones Passing Yards
The Odds: Over 239.5 yards (-115)/Under 239.5 yards (-115)

Let’s assume Mac Jones throws more than three passes in his game against the Colts. Even if he doesn’t, it won’t be because of the same blizzardy winds he encountered in Buffalo in Week 13. This game is in the dome in Indianapolis.

But even with better weather and more passing opportunities, this will be a game where both teams try to run the football. Then, they’re going to run it again.

Bill Belichick has been brilliant in ensuring that his rookie quarterback is complemented by a great rushing attack, and the Colts will counter with Jonathan Taylor. That means long and methodical drives, few big plays, and low passing yards for both quarterbacks.

Tom Brady and Josh Allen threw for 226 and 209 yards respectively against Indianapolis, and Jones will also finish UNDER.

Jonathan Taylor Vs. New England Patriots

The Prop: Jonathan Taylor Rushing Yards
The Odds: Over 97.5 yards (-114)/Under 97.5 yards (-118)

The Patriots have a good defense that has been playing well, but they can be gotten on the ground. It didn’t happen the last time out against Buffalo, because the Bills have one of the worst rushing attacks in the NFL. But the week before, both D’Onta Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard went for over 100 yards, and two weeks prior to that D’Ernest Johnson rushed for 99 yards.

In the understatement of the year, Jonathan Taylor is better than all three of those guys, and if they can have big games against the Pats, he certainly can.

Taylor is averaging 139.8 yards over his last five games, and he will go OVER on Saturday at home.

Hunter Renfrow Vs. Cleveland Browns

The Prop: Hunter Renfrow Receiving Yards
The Odds: Over 71.5 yards (-114)/Under 71.5 yards (-118)

Hunter Renfrow has stepped up to fill the void nicely without Darren Waller the last two weeks. The Raiders haven’t been good and are coming off the worst beating in the 62-year history of their rivalry with Kansas City, but Renfrow was outstanding. He was the only one.

He caught 13 passes for 117 yards against the Chiefs, a week after catching nine passes for 102 yards against Washington, a week after catching eight passes for 134 yards against the Cowboys.

Renfrow has been better the last three weeks than even Cooper Kupp, but the lines have yet to reflect it. Until they do, hit Renfrow with the OVER, especially against a Browns defense that just gave up 103 yards to Rashod Bateman.
