Look for the Jets to stymie Randy Moss and the Patriots this Sunday afternoon.
Eli Manning is looking for payback at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday when he leads the New York Giants against his big brother Peyton and the Indianapolis Colts.
Peyton won when they met in 2006 but Eli leads a Giants offense loaded with receiving talent. To celebrate Manning Bowl II, Sports Interaction is offering a special prop bet to decide who will be the better brother.
Peyton is a 12½-point favorite to post a higher quarterback rating on NFL.com than his little brother. For all the receiving talent at Eli’s disposal, I can’t see the younger Manning pulling out a win on the road. The Colts need a win badly and have the best quarterback of his generation under center ready to deliver. Bet on the Indianapolis Colts as 5½-point favorites and win big with Sports Interaction.
Monday Night Football sees New Orleans head out west to take on a hurting San Francisco team. The 49ers didn’t know what hit them when the Seahawks ran roughshod over them in Seattle. Seriously, did anyone other than Pete Carroll think Mike Williams could play that well? Well now Mike Singletary has to worry about the most potent offense in the NFL.
Drew Brees and the Saints weren’t firing on all cylinders against the Vikings but they still did enough to win. Now against a San Francisco team struggling for air, they have a chance to run up the score. The Saints are tremendous value as 6-point favorites. Bet on New Orleans and win big with Sports Interaction.
Over in the AFC East there’s more than bragging rights at stake on Sunday. The New York Jets entered this season talking up their chances of a trip to the Super Bowl. Now, after just one game, they look ready to crash and burn. Their offense was just dreadful against the Ravens and now they have the Ines Sainz scandal to worry about.
All the headlines for New England meanwhile have focussed on how Tom Brady and Wes Welker are clicking again. Dig a little deeper and this game becomes more complex. For all their offensive woes, the Jets still look nasty on defense, while the Patriots have a potential crisis in the making. Randy Moss is moaning and whining about not getting enough respect.
This could spell disaster for the New England locker room. Combine that with Darrelle Revis in coverage and you have an upset in the making. Bet on the Jets as 2½-point underdogs to win big with Sports Interaction.
