Indianapolis Colts interim coach Jeff Saturday wasn’t exactly concerned with the Christmas spirit when he made the decision to bench starting quarterback Matt Ryan for a second time this season. Now the Colts will hand the ball over to former Super Bowl MVP and Pro Bowler Nick Foles for a Monday Night Football matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16 at 8:15 p.m. ET. The latest NFL prop odds from Caesars Sportsbook lists the over/under for Foles passing touchdowns at 1.5 with the Over paying out at +116 (bet $100 to win $116) as Foles is now scheduled to start for his sixth different team.So should you be expecting Foles to throw for multiple touchdowns for a chance at a plus-money payout in your NFL prop bets, or are there better opportunities on the board? Chargers running back Austin Ekeler has scored in nine of his last 11 games and is priced at -117 as an anytime touchdown scorer in this week’s Chargers vs. Colts prop lines.

The 11th-year veteran will be making his 57th career start in the NFL and it will be his first start in exactly one year since he led the Bears to a 25-24 win over the Seahawks on Dec. 26, 2021.
Foles threw for 250 yards in that game and eclipsed 231.5 passing yards in four of his last five starts with Chicago but this is an Indianapolis pass offense that has had serious issues moving the ball. Ryan went for less than 231.5 yards in four of his last five starts for the Colts and the outlier was a 233-yard performance in a blowout loss to the Cowboys.And with Jonathan Taylor (ankle) out, Foles won’t have the benefit of loaded boxes to create one-on-one coverage on the outside. Expect to see Michael Pittman Jr. bracketed most of the game, which is a big reason why the model is predicting that Foles only finishes with 213 passing yards on average.
