The Colts are three-point NFL betting road favorites with a total of 42. NFL bet facts have Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning looking for his 119th victory, which would break a tie with Johnny Unitas for the franchise record. "I've never felt comfortable with comparisons with him. I think he's kind of in his own category," said Manning, "But I am proud of those wins."
Indianapolis got the win last week against Jacksonville but they did not cover the NFL bet number, winning by only two. They were not very impressive but they did win their opener under new head coach Jim Caldwell. "I saw a coach that was very happy," wide receiver Reggie Wayne said, "Whether we won by 30 or one, a 'W' is a 'W'. I am sure if we win by 30 it looks a lot better, but for him to get his first 'W' as a head coach, everybody was excited for him. He was excited."
Manning was 28 of 38 for 301 yards as NFL bet statistics indicated. Manning is 18-3 in September since the start of the 2003 season. He and the Colts have won seven of their last eight NFL bet Monday night games.
Miami has not played on Monday night since 2006.
Miami did not play well last week in a 19-7 NFL bet loss to Atlanta. "When you put a performance out there like that, you can't wait for the next game to get here," tight end Anthony Fasano said. Quarterback Chad Pennington threw one interception, lost a fumble and was sacked four times. The Dolphins have committed nine turnovers in their last two games dating back to last season. "No turnover is forgivable in my mind," head coach Tony Sparano said.
NFL bet trends have the Colts at 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Monday games but the Colts are 2-6-1 against the NFL betting number in their last 9 games as a favorite.
Miami has been poor at home recently in NFL bet action as they are 16-35-1 in NFL betting in their last 52 home games. The Dolphins are 3-7 vs. the NFL bet number in their last 10 games overall and 1-8-2 ATS in their last 11 NFL bet games in September.
