For all the sports gambling fans that were wagering on if Peyton Manning was going to be able to perform as his usual self after a 20 month layoff, the question was answered emphatically last Sunday night against the Steelers. He led them to an impressive victory against a very good team, and in the process went 19 for 26 for 253 yards passing and 2 TD’s. He will not have time to to gloat about his performance because this Monday night he will have another tough challenge against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Falcons are also coming off an impressive performance in week 1, where they pounded the Kansas City Chiefs 40-24. Matty Ice came out of the gate swinging going 23 for 31 for 299 yards passing, while throwing 3 TD’s and 1 rushing TD in the process. Life is easier when you have players like Julio Jones on the field to rely on. He had a big first game with 6 catches for 108 yards and 2 TD’s, and appears to have taken over Roddy White’s role as the number 1 receiver. Between these two high powered offenses, sports gambling fans should expect to see a Monday night shoot out. The over/ under is 51, and the wise sports gambling strategy would be for sports gambling fans to wager on the over.
This game should be a close match up, and truly has the chance to go any teams way, which will most likely mean that it will come down to the team that has the ball last. The Broncos are 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games playing on turf. Whereas the Falcons are 0-5 against the spread versus a team with a winning record, so neither trend seems to be a glaring advantage, but something is telling me that Manning is not finished with providing some magic for sports gambling fans to see. I would suggest to sports gambling fans that they wager on the Broncos to win on the money line at +155 and to wager on them getting +3 points.
