Welcome to Monday Night Football! Tonight's game features Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts against Eli Manning and the New York Giants. I am going to go bold tonight with my prediction based on both my gut and one historical fact centered around Eli Manning.
FACT: Eli Manning is a beast coming off a Bye Week. Six years running.
|2008||Seattle Seahawks||44-6 (W)||19||25||267||2||0|
|2009||Atlanta Falcons||34-31 (W)||25||39||384||3||1|
|2010||Seattle Seahawks||41-7 (W)||21||32||290||3||0|
|2011||Miami Dolphins||20-17 (W)||31||45||349||2||0|
|2012||Green Bay Packers||38-10 (W)||16||30||249||3||0|
|2013||Oakland Raiders||24-20 (W)||12||22||140||1||1|
Look at that? How can I not go with Eli Manning and the Giants tonight?! I know, that Oakland game last year is a blip. It's just a blip people! Go Giants!
I might be hyping myself up due to another fact that has me currently in a three-way tie for first place in my Yahoo Pick'em league, which means a win by the underdog Giants tonight could net me some major financial windfalls and I'm licking my chops! Prediction: Giants 31, Colts 27.
Only 11% of Yahoo users picked the Giants to win tonight, do any of you give them a chance?
