Monday Night Football NFL Expert Pick – Texans vs. Colts

Posted by Marcello Messina on 11/1/2010 1:09:23 PM

This week’s Monday Night Football expert pick follows one of the cardinal rules of NFL betting online: Never bet against Peyton Manning in a nationally televised night game.

(4-2) Houston Texans at (4-2) Indianapolis Colts
Live from Lucas Oil Stadium - IN
Kickoff: 8:30 PM EST Monday, November 1, 2010
Broadcast: ESPN

NorthBet NFL Betting Online:
Indianapolis Colts -5.5
Houston Texans +5.5
Total 51

It doesn’t really matter who is out there catching Manning’s passes - the future Hall of Fame quarterback could make Jonathan Ogden look like a pro bowl receiver.

Without tight end Dallas Clark and wide receiver Austin Collie in the lineup, Manning will be looking heavily towards Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon this Monday.

In the Colts 27-24 victory over Washington last NFL betting week, guess which two receivers were the most productive for Indianapolis. It was Garcon and Wayne.

Garcon caught 4 passes for a season-high 103 yards including a 57-yard touchdown. Wayne added 6 grabs for a total of 71 yards.

Austin Collie and Dallas Clark (while combining for 13 receptions) accumulated just 109 yards and no touchdowns. There is hardly a doubt in my mind that Indianapolis will be able to find replacements.

To boot, Manning also matches up with one of his easiest opponents this NFL betting online season.

The Houston Texans rank last in pass defense, as they have permitted an average of more than 300 passing yards per game.

Houston has also given up an incredible 14 touchdowns through the air in just six games, while at the same time recording only four interceptions.

This matchup is a no brainer as one of my NFL expert picks, as Houston faces off with the Colts, who are positioned as the second-best passing offense in the NFL.

Peyton is averaging nearly 320 passing yards per game, second in the NFL to Phillip Rivers. Manning has also thrown 13 touchdowns this NFL betting online season, while limiting his interception count to just two.

Expect Manning and company to completely dominate the Texans defense and control the game in Lucas Oil Stadium this NFL betting online Monday Night Football matchup.

Messina Mention: Indianapolis has won 6 out of their last 7 matchups with the Texans since September 2007.

NFL Expert Pick: Indianapolis Colts (-5.5).
