The Colts and Carson Wentz Prop Bets You Need to Make Now
After weeks of speculation, the Philadelphia Eagles finally traded Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts. Many believe that this will be an excellent opportunity for Wentz since he is reunited with Coach Frank Reich. If you are on that same page there are several Carson Wentz prop bets you may want to bet on now.
Colts and Carson Wentz Prop Bets
Several sportsbooks are posting prop bets on how Carson Wentz and the Colts will perform this season. Of course, many of those prop bets will include the Eagles and how they will do without Wentz under center. In fact, the first prop bet focuses on what team will have the better season.
|WHICH TEAM WILL HAVE A BETTER RECORD IN 2021?||MONEYLINE|
|Bet here||Indianapolis Colts||-270|
|Bet here||Philadelphia Eagles||+180|
Wentz Performance Prop Bets
Wentz will be playing with a better offensive line and better skill position players than he did last year in Philly. However, some of these numbers seem to be a bit inflated.
|Bet||Over 4000 Yards||-115|
|Bet||Under 4000 Yards||-115|
Wentz can return to greatness under Reich but this number seems way too high. The Colts are a running team and they will go to the run first with Jonathan Taylor. That may make it difficult for Wentz to get over this number.
|CARSON WENTZ TOTAL GAMES PLAYED IN 2021?||MONEYLINE|
|Bet here||Over 14½ games||-120|
|Bet Here||Under 14½ games||-120|
Although Wentz has a history of injuries, he is playing behind a much better offensive line. This will provide more security and therefore less pressure. The Colts will want a healthy Wentz for a playoff push and he will play in every game this season, making the over the play on this prop.
Wentz vs Hurts
Wentz and Jalen Hurts are going to be forever linked. So it is obvious that sportsbooks will want to put out prop bets featuring the two talented QB’s and how they will do this season.
Here is the complete list of Hurts vs Wentz prop bets
The Eagles are still not handing the keys over to Hurts just yet and they claim they are still looking at veteran signal-callers, but Hurts deserves a shot.

The latest prop bet on Jalen Hurts and his number of starts this year, clearly favor that he will be named the starter. Another prop bet suggests that the Eagles will use their first-round draft pick on a position other than quarterback.
|Bet here||Over 12½ Starts||-130|
|Bet here||Under 12½ Starts||+100|
Adam Schefter said on @975TheFanatic that Jalen Hurts isn’t a lock to start next season, and the #Eagles could explore other options through FA or the draft 👀

|JALEN HURTS TOTAL TD PASSES IN 2021?||MONEYLINE|
|Bet here||Over 21½ TD passes||-120|
|Bet here||Under 21½ TD passes||-120|
The Eagles have to start Hurts right? They traded Wentz and unless they pull off something amazing he is going to be their best option. This offensive line should be improved, but the team will struggle overall. This will put the Eagles behind in many games and force them to pass. This number is close, but the wager to make is the over 21 TD passes.
