The NY Jets will look to bounce back from four consecutive losses when they take on the Seattle Seahawks in Week 17, and they'll do so with the returning Mike White under center.

The Jets are hoping that White's return will breathe new life into an offense that has been stagnant with Zach Wilson running the show. There's no room for error now as a loss would officially eliminate the Jets from playoff contention.

The Seahawks are in a very similar situation as a loss here in Week 17 would effectively (not officially) eliminate them from the postseason. Both teams have run into cold spells and are in desperate need of a victory.

Who will emerge as the winner in this cross-conference matchup? Let's take a look at a few prop bets to make for this week's game.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.

Garrett Wilson OVER 66.5 receiving yards (-114)

Mike White's return is good news for the entire Jets' offense, but no one is set to benefit more than Garrett Wilson. The rookie wide receiver has thrived with White under center, finishing with 95, 162, and 78 yards in White's three starts this season.

If White can stay healthy, there's no reason to think that Wilson won't top his 66.5-yard receiving prop this week. Wilson is currently 14th in the NFL among all wide receivers with 996 yards despite dealing with horrendous quarterback play for most of the season.

He's looking to become the first Jets player to reach the 1,000-yard receiving mark since 2015, and he very well could do it in style on Sunday.

Mike White OVER 246.5 passing yards (-114)

Speaking of Mike White, the Jets' passing game should improve significantly with the former fifth-rounder back at the helm. His 246.5-yard passing prop this week is high, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't consider the over.

In fact, White has thrown for at least 268 yards in each of his three starts this season, and that includes his last game against Buffalo where he missed a chunk of snaps.

Expect the Jets to find success in the air on Sunday and White should be able to clear his passing prop. Bet the over here.

Kenneth Walker UNDER 72.5 rushing yards (-114)

I'm a little surprised to see Kenneth Walker's rushing yards prop as high as it is this week. The rookie running back has topped 50 yards just once in his last five games including three games under 40 yards.

Despite this, he's been given a very high 72.5-yard rushing prop. Walker is coming off a 107-yard performance last week and Seattle's backfield is banged up which could lead to more touches, but 73 yards still feels ambitious.

The Jets' defense has been a bit inconsistent against the run in recent weeks, but the Seahawks' rushing attack is nothing special. I feel very comfortable betting the under this week.
