Big brother Peyton’s team is the favorite for this 2010 NFL week 2 picks match-up and the Las Vegas odds show the Indianapolis Colts favored by -4½(-110). Check out Bodog.com if your leaning towards younger brother eli, the NFL odds makers at Bodog.com currently have the Giants posted as a +6(-115) point 2010 NFL week 2 picks underdog. The last time the Mannings met in a NFL picks match-up, in 2006, Peyton defeated Eli by a score of 26-21 so the Las Vegas odds seem about right.
The Colts (0-1) were ambushed by the Texans in Houston 34-24 in their week 1 NFL picks battle behind the strength of a surprisingly powerful Houston running game. Manning had a great game, with 400-plus yards and three touchdowns but it wasn’t enough. The Colts could find no running room and could convert just 4 of 12 third down opportunities in the NFL picks matchup. Even Manning will need some help from his running game so the offensive line and backs Joseph Addai and Donald Brown need to establish some semblance of a ground game early. The Colts will put-up their points in this 2010 NFL week 2 picks battle - the only question is how many?
The Giants (1-0) will have something to say about the final score in Sunday's NFL picks contest. Defensively, the Giants played well in their 31-18 routing of Carolina in their week 1 NFL predictions contest. They held the tough running game of the Panthers to under 100 yards and forced Carolina into five turnovers. The front four pressured the quarterback and the result was 4 sacks. The Giants secondary, while solid in this NFL picks match-up, have shown that they can be thrown on and Manning will take his shots. The pressure has to come from the defensive line so the Giants can drop multiple players into coverage.
Peyton Manning will get his points, especially at home, and the Giants need to limit his scoring opportunities in this 2010 NFL week 2 picks matchup. Turnovers would help but it would be too much to expect a repeat of last week’s success against Carolina. Look for the Colts to cover on the strength of Peyton’s arm.
