Peyton Manning has dominated the record books since breaking into the league in 1999, winning four league MVP awards while setting the benchmark for the way the quarterback position should be played. While his younger brother Eli hasn’t performed at the same level as consistently as Peyton, he has as many Super Bowl rings in a shorter amount of time, and could very well be a good enough leader that he may finish with more championship titles. The football roots run deep in the Manning family, dating back to their father Archie’s time as quarterback of the New Orleans Saints. Now, it’s a battle of the biggest brothers in the sport as Peyton’s Indianapolis Colts take on Eli’s New York Giants on Monday Night Football.

Why To Bet on The Colts?

After years of dominating the AFC South division, the Indianapolis Colts looked vulnerable in their season opening loss to the Houston Texans at Reliant Stadium, falling behind early en route to a 34-24 loss. Manning and wide receiver Reggie Wayne were their usual selves, but the defense absolutely fell apart in allowing Texans’ rookie running back Arian Foster to rush for over 200 yards. Indianapolis will spend the week looking at film on how to improve their front seven, but it may be more a question of toughness both physically and mentally than it would be about positional corrections. Head coach Jim Caldwell will not want to fall two games behind in the division, and this week may end up being crucial to the Colts continuing their domination in the AFC South.

Why To Bet On The Giants?

The Giants were the biggest favorites of the NFL’s opening week, the only team in the league that was favored by at least a touchdown. In the first ever regular season game to be played at New Meadowlands Stadium, New York lived up to the expectations, pulling ahead in the second half for a 31-18 win over the Carolina Panthers. Eli found himself working with a couple of new playmakers in the season opener, throwing to Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham with more consistency than in the past, with Nicks catching three touchdowns and Manningham leading the team in yards with 85. The defense tightened up after, looking a little too loose in the first half, but will face a much tougher task against the Colts.

How The Game Will Play Out

Unlike the Panthers, the Colts will go to the air early and often when they get to New York, and it will be interesting to see how the Giants’ betting on NFL defense reacts. The same goes the other way, as Indianapolis will have to tighten up big time against the run after allowing the Texans to run them into the ground. The Giants are at home, but the Colts have the better Manning, and Indianapolis won’t start 0-2.
