Tonight’s Giants vs. Colts Pick

Posted by in NFL Picks on September 19th, 2010 | 4 Comments

Colts vs. Giants PickI guess you can’t win ’em all. While we won our two big games this week thanks to Green Bay and Atlanta, the Pats busted a nice 4-team teaser that I hit the first 3 picks on. You can’t say we didn’t warn you. I even called the Pats pick a “suckers pick” and that the game was on upset alert.  Looks like I’m the sucker. I also said don’t bet against home dogs and that saved you from taking the Ravens.  I should have listened to my own advice. What are you going to do? We still cleaned up with the rest of them. If I substituted the Pats, I probably would have went Panthers +3.5 and that wouldn’t have worked out either. I’ll take my winnings from the last four days and keep on trucking.

The Jets are another irritating team to try to bet on or against thanks to the inconsistent Mark Sanchez. Last week he plays like Ryan Leaf. This week he plays like Tom Brady while Tom Brady plays like him. Thankfully, sports books were so slammed at 4:00 that I couldn’t even put more on the Pats. Good dodge. Should have also stuck with Chargers instead of flipping on that one, but I gave it a 1/5 and said don’t play it. A lot of people were all over the Jags (+8) after Garrard had a nice game against Denver, but he threw 4 picks in this one.

Tonight there has been significant line movement with money pouring in on the Giants. The line opened at Giants (+5.5) and is now (+4). Will the Colts win? Probably. Will it be close? Likely. Can the Giants pull off the upset and win? I think it could happen. The Colts are at home where they were 7-1 ATS last year. However, they sucked against the run last week and the Giants can run the football. I’m expecting Jacobs and Bradshaw get the best of the Colts D who is without Bob Sanders. Once the Colts focus on the run, Eli Manning opens it up in the passing game. Colts should get their fair share of points, but Giants have a great pass rush and should force the Colts into some punting situations. Aaron Ross, Hakeem Nicks, and Osi Umenyiora will be active for Giants. Those are three key players the Giants will now have. Not only is Sanders out, but Mathis and Bracket are questionable. Injury report favors Giants here.

I like the Giants and I like the over, especially after looking at these trends. The last time the Manning brothers faced each other, it was a 26-21 game. I’m expecting another close battle just like the last one so I’m favoring the points.

    Damn Giants look pathetic. So much for trash talk on the Colts D. Should have expected Colts to bounce back at home. Thought Giants offense could at least cover with 11 points. Giants have ball to start half. This one aint over yet and we’ve been on a hell of a run. Note to self: don’t take games that are rated 1/5 just cuz its on the teevee. Only stick to the good ones like GB and ATL.

    It’s over bro. Peyton ends “runs” at home on Sunday Night Football. The only good thing Eli will be good for second half is pitching in 14 points to help reach the over.

    Nice cover on the over. I know you said that Colts would probably win this one but something to think about for the future: Since 2007 Colts are 13-2 straight up (Not sure about ATS) under the lights. P. Manning is just too good when the lights are turned on. Took the colts but definitely had your advice on the over. Thanks Vegas, great overall weekend!!!
