After two Monday Night Football games in week one; with the home team coming away with wins in both of them; we will see the New York Jets take on the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2. This game is set to be live from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Jets are coming into this game sky high following their week 1 win at home over Cleveland.
New York is one of four teams out of the AFC East to win their opener. On the other side, the home team, Indianapolis Colts are looking to get back on track. The Colts struggled on the road, and took at loss at the Buffalo Bills in Week 1. The Colts are many people’s favorite to win not only the AFC South, but also the entire AFC, and maybe even the Super Bowl.
Betting on the Indianapolis Colts is easy money
Yes! You read that right. Betting on the Indianapolis Colts is going to be easy money in this game. The Colts are fired up, and are going to roll in this game. Mo matter if they get T.Y. Hilton back or not, look for the Indianapolis offense to be way too much for a Jets defense that got by against a weak Cleveland team.
Andrew Luck is bound to figure things out against a veteran such as Andre Johnson, and we know Donte Moncreaf is chomping at the bit to get into the end zone. On the ground, Frank Gore is a veteran in this league, and wants to show he still has plenty of gas left in the tank.
On the Jets side, Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to have a tough time winning on the road, in a prime time game. The Jets receiving core of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker are formidable, but extremely injury prone.
If one of these guys go out, it will be quite the challenge for Fitzpatrick. Chris Ivory had two touchdowns a week ago for the Jets, but look for Indianapolis to make a large focus on stopping the run. Betting on the Indianapolis Colts, even at -7 is some easy money for Sunday!
It’s Worth Considering the Under for the Monday Night Football Game
While I love the Indianapolis Colts offense in this game. Andrew Luck should be solid, and Indianapolis will score a bunch of points. I am not sure the New York Jets will hold up their end of the bargain for the total in this one.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Colts reach 30, but I truly feel the Jets will not get out of the teen’s. I am predicting a 31-14 Colts win in this game, which would set the total way under.
A week ago, The Colts and Bills stayed under their total, with a combined 41 points, while the Jets and Browns went over their total with 41 points as well. The Jets are going to struggle to score 31 points in this game, like they did a week ago. I would highly consider taking the UNDER 48 in this Monday Night Football game between the Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets.
First Half Bet on Indianapolis?
If you want more action; consider a first half bet for the Indianapolis Colts. They are currently listed at -4 for the first half over the Jets. The Colts are going to want to start fast in this one, and Luck is going to pass the ball for much of the half.
If you want some early money on this game, it would be a good idea to look at the Colts 1H bet. Also, consider taking the Colts in the 1Q, because again, look for Indianapolis to start fast and hold the throttle down.
