Why Bet on New York at +9?

Why should you consider betting on the G-Men in this matchup? Because they’ve got a future Hall of Fame talent in superstar running back Saquon Barkley and have played hard for head coach Pat Shurmur all season long despite having their modest two-game winning streak halted in their humbling 17-0 shutout loss against Tennessee last weekend.

Eli Manning passed for 229 yards with one interception and no touchdowns. New York’s defense gave up 170 rushing yards and two touchdowns to Tennessee running back Derrick Henry in the loss. The Giants average 21.9 points per game (20th) while giving up 24.9 points per contest defensively (23rd).

Why Bet on Indianapolis at -9?

Why should you consider betting on Indy in this contest? The best reason is that the Colts are playing their best football of the season at just the right time. Another good reason is that Indianapolis is playing at home. Last but not least, the Colts also have the best quarterback in this pairing in Andrew Luck (no offense Eli).

Giants vs Colts should be an easy victory for Indianapolis.

Indianapolis has won two straight and seven of their last eight games including their dominating 23-0 shutout win over Dallas last weekend as a 3-point home favorite. Luck passed for a modest 192 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions, but running back Marlon Mack led the way offensively with 139 rushing yards and two touchdowns on just 16 carries. Indy’s defense was outstanding in shutting down Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and Amari Cooper. The Colts average 26.6 points per game (8th) while allowing 21.4 points per contest defensively (11th).
