Monday Night Football: Week 2 Preview


The Indianapolis Colts have managed to follow up a loss with an ATS victory in the same season 13 straight times as they try to bounce back from their defeat at the hands of the Broncos with a win and payout on Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Indianapolis is coming off a 31-24 loss in Denver last weekend in which they put up a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter to at least walk away with a cover. Andrew Luck completed 35 of his 53 pass attempts for 370 yards in that losing cause, with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

The Eagles also picked up their game in the second half in Week 2, scoring all 34 of their points after halftime to win and cover against the Jaguars in a 34-17 victory. Nick Foles was good on 27 of his 45 pass attempts for 322 yards against the Jaguars, with two touchdown strikes and one interception.

Indianapolis opened as a 2.5-point favorite against Philadelphia for Monday night, and by late Saturday that line had moved just slightly to Colts -3 at most sportsbooks. The total for the game is 54 points, which is the highest OVER/UNDER on the board for Week 2. [Check out the latest MNF odds]
