Bettors want no part of Giants Monday – 11-03-2014


USA Today Sports

One thing you’ll hear tonight is that the New York
Giants’ bye week came at the right time. The Giants dropped two
straight ahead of their week off, being outscored by 37
combined points in the process.

However, even though they’re coming off their bye week,
bettors don’t want any part of the New York Giants as

3-point underdogs as they welcome in the Indianapolis Colts

“We’re looking at a very large liability on Indianapolis both
on the moneyline and the spread tonight,” a
Sports Interaction oddsmaker said. “We have the Colts
juiced at -120 and we’re still seeing about 78 percent of
total bets coming in on that side.”

Indianapolis is coming off a humbling blowout loss at

that hasn’t been enough to scare off Colts bettors.

“Even with New York’s week off, it’s not like bettors don’t
remember how bad the Giants have looked,”
Sports Interaction’s oddsmaker says. “They’re just a hard
team to get a read on. They put a three-game winning streak

Colts bounce back here. Indy is 6-2 against the number and
looked like a contender in the AFC during that winning

Sports Interaction says it’s possible the 51-point total
and could move before the kick but that it was too early to

“With these stand-alone games, especially Monday Night
Football, we usually see a lot of over money and tonight’s
game is no different,” he says. “With the way Andrew Luck is
throwing the ball around, bettors are hoping for a
high-scoring matchup to finish off the week.”

The two teams have combined to play over in 10 of 15 games
this season.
