Host Allan Bell is joined by sports betting experts Larry Hartstein and Jake Fetner on The Early Edge podcast. They give you their best bets for Thursday Night Football for Oct. 6 and a college football play for Friday night.

The crew runs down the storylines, breaking down Thursday Night Football. Jake goes over the Colts' outstanding 14-4-1 record against the spread on Thursdays, the best mark of all-time. And they have been doing it on the road, going 11-2-1. Denver is 12-7 ATS, going 5-2 ATS at home in Thursday night games.

Fetner kicks off the picks with a play from that Colts vs. Broncos matchup on Thursday Night Football (8:15 p.m. ET). He is backing Indianapolis running back Nyheim Hines Over 3.5 receptions (-130). Hines is now the lead back, and he has at least four catches in all but one game this season. The model has him at 5.8 catches, "so we love the Over there," Jake says.

Jake also has a college football pick for Friday night, taking Nevada -3 on an alternate line (-130) vs. Colorado State (Friday at 10:30 p.m. ET). The line is -3.5, but Fetner wants to bring the push into play. Fetner says the Rams are allowing 7.7 sacks per game, and Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi could start in place of the injured Clay Millen at quarterback for Colorado State.

Larry has an NFL prop from the Thursday night game, taking Indianapolis linebacker Zaire Franklin Over 8.5 Tackles and Assists (-120). He has had a bigger game each week, going from eight to 10 to 12 to 15 tackles, and Indianapolis has some other key defenders out. "This guy has not been taken off the field yet," Hartstein says. Franklin has played 259 snaps this season, most on the team, and Larry expects Denver "to be stubborn" and try to run the ball.    

The AB3 is a trio of NFL props, with Broncos kicker Brandon McManus Over 1.5 Field Goals (-110) and Colts quarterback Matt Ryan Over 1.5 interceptions (-125). Allan also is backing Both Teams to Score 15+ Points (-140).
