NFL Betting Update

In case there was any uncertainty, Indianapolis laid everyone’s concerns to rest Sunday night in front of a national TV audience: Peyton Manning’s offense is still one of the best in the business, a championship defense can in fact be built on speed, and the Colts are the top team in the AFC South (yes, Houston we know you scored the victory Week 1).


A performance like Sunday’s win over the Giants makes the price that sportsbook have on the Colts (+400) to win the AFC look attractive and the opportunity for such an offer is likely only going to be around for a few more days.


Indianapolis is at Denver in Week 3 and has listed the Colts as a 6- point favorite. After that one, Indy will face Jacksonville and Kansas City, a pair of 1-and-1 clubs, and even though Indy may not cover the spread in all three matchups, odds are very good they will be 4-1 SU (straight-up) by Week 6.


Houston improved to 2-0 SU with an overtime win at Washington, who the Colts will meet in Week 6 and then Indianapolis has a bye. When they return it’s a rematch with the Texans on Monday Night Football!


Wouldn’t it be something if the Colts are 5-0 SU for that game since that loss in Houston Week 1.


‘Prospective Betting’ lines for that and every matchup from now through Week 17 are available now at the sportsbook . The current line shows Indianapolis (-6).



Eli Manning must be used to getting picked on by his older brother. It started when they were kids and even in the pros Peyton has kept on given little brother the beats.


What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, though, and its possible bettors could find value looking for the Giants to go on a roll.


The last time big bros beat up on Eli was Week 1, 2006. The Giants followed that loss with a straight-up win as a divisional road dog in Philadelphia and then went on to five of their next six games SU (4-2 ATS).


New York is home for back-to-back games against two beatable foes stating Sunday (Tennessee, Chicago), and oddsmakers have listed the Giants as -3.5 favorites.


Ex-Giant Kerry Collins was calling signals for the fourth quarter of the Titans’ 19-11 loss against Pittsburgh but Coach Fisher says Vince Young will start in New York.



One quarterback that will not be back under center this week is Steve Moore. Coach Fox did not liked what he saw in either of Moore’s first two starts and announced Monday that rookie QB Jimmy Clausen will make his first NFL start Sunday when the Bengals visit Carolina.


Cincinnati (-3.5) was far better at home against Baltimore than they were in New England and early money has already started to come in on the road favorite for this inter-Conference game.


There is also concern that Steelers QB Dennis Dixon (knee) could be out longer than expected with a torn lateral meniscus that could require arthroscopic surgery to repair the damage. Ben Roethlisberger would be back with the team before Dixon but in the meantime Pittsburgh has re-signed Byron Leftwich as a backup to Charlie Batch.


Pittsburgh (-2.5) is in Tampa Bay (2-0) this Sunday and the Steelers are 0-5 ATS in their past five non-Conference meetings away from Heinz Field.


Good luck this week @
