Monday Night Football: Week 9 Preview


Coming off the end of a five-game SU and ATS winning streak, Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts will be looking to get back on track on Monday night as they play against the New York Giants as road favorites to cap off Week 9 of the NFL season.

The Colts started the season 0-2 SU and 1-1 ATS, but then went on that streak with wins and covers over each of Jacksonville, Tennessee, Baltimore, Houston, and Cincinnati. Indianapolis then lost 51-34 as a 5-point favorite in Pittsburgh against the Steelers last week.

That has the Colts at 5-3 SU and 6-2 ATS heading into Week 9, with the OVER paying out for totals bettors in eight of those games. The Giants, meanwhile, are 3-4 both SU and ATS after dropping back-to-back SU and ATS results to the Eagles and the Cowboys in the past two weeks. The OVER/UNDER is 4-3 on the season in New York’s games.

The Colts opened as 3-point road favorites on the NFL betting lines for this contest, and that line has been stable. Indianapolis and New York last met back in September 2010 when the Colts won 38-14 as a 4-point home favorite. Overall the teams have split their six meetings 3-3 both SU and ATS since 1990.
