Monday Night Football Betting: Colts at Chargers

Indianapolis Colts at San Diego Chargers (+1, 50)

Andrew Luck has had his way with West Coast teams this season and he hopes to continue that trend when the Indianapolis Colts visit the San Diego Chargers on Monday night. The Colts have surged to the top of the AFC South on the heels of a three-game winning streak, which includes victories over NFC powers San Francisco and Seattle. Luck added to his growing reputation last week with his ninth comeback win in the fourth quarter or overtime in 21 career games.

San Diego changed head coaches in the offseason, but the inconsistency that has been a hallmark of the franchise for the past decade continues to permeate the team. One week after ripping off 20 unanswered points to knock off the Dallas Cowboys, the Chargers fell into an early 17-point hole in a turnover-riddled defeat at Oakland. "We've shown the good and we've shown the bad," Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. "We have to eliminate all the bad and get back to where we were at the Dallas game."

LINE: This opened as a pick and now sits Colts -1. The total opened 49.5 and is now 50.

WEATHER: Temperatures will be in the high-60s with clear and sunny skies.

ABOUT THE COLTS (4-1): Indianapolis absorbed another blow when running back Ahmad Bradshaw was placed on injured reserve, making the acquisition of Trent Richardson from Cleveland that much more noteworthy. The Colts rank fourth in rushing at 142 yards per game, but Richardson has yet to make the expected impact with 151 yards on 51 carries in his three games with Indy. Luck's numbers are hardly off the charts - he averages under 230 yards per game - but he has an emerging target to go along with Reggie Wayne in second-year wideout T.Y. Hilton, who had a career-high 140 yards and two touchdowns last week.

ABOUT THE CHARGERS (2-3): Philip Rivers has appeared to regain his mojo after a two consecutive turnover-laden campaigns, but his third 400-yard game of the season was negated by three interceptions in the loss to Oakland. An already-suspect running game absorbed another blow when oft-injured Ryan Mathews suffered a concussion last week, putting the onus on Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown to carry the ground attack. The Chargers have lost both starting receivers Danario Alexander and Malcom Floyd to season-ending injuries, but Vincent Brown and rookie Keenan Allen each went over 100 yards last week.


* Colts are 1-6 ATS in their last seven meetings.
* Under is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings.
* Colts are 8-1 ATS in their last nine Monday games.
* Chargers are 0-6 ATS in their last six games in October.


1. Wayne needs four catches to become the ninth receiver in league history with 1,000 receptions.

2. San Diego's Antonio Gates is second among tight ends with 438 yards receiving.

3. Colts coach Chuck Pagano will be facing his younger brother in Chargers defensive coordinator John Pagano.

Re: Monday Night Football Colts vs Chargers

MNF - Colts at Chargers
By Kevin Rogers

The AFC South is pretty much in Indianapolis' control six weeks into the season. The Colts own a 4-1 record heading into Monday's contest at San Diego, while the other three teams in the AFC South own a .500 record or worse. One of the bigger storylines heading into this game is the Monday night debut of Andrew Luck, who led the Colts to another comeback victory last Sunday.

Indianapolis eclipsed the 27-point mark for the third straight week in a 34-28 triumph to hand Seattle its first loss of the season. The Colts overcame an early 12-0 deficit, which included two touchdown passes from Luck to T.Y. Hilton. The Seahawks were held to four field goals, but did rush for 218 yards in the defeat. Indianapolis improved to 5-0 ATS since last season as a home underdog, cashing as three-point 'dogs against Seattle, while hitting the 'over' for just the second time this season.

The Chargers have alternated wins and losses in each of the first five weeks of the season after last Sunday's 27-17 defeat at Oakland. San Diego closed as 5½-point favorites in the ultimate chase game with an 11:35 PM EST kickoff, but the Bolts fell behind the Raiders, 17-0 at halftime. The Chargers rushed for just 36 yards in the defeat, while Philip Rivers threw for 411 yards, the third time he has eclipsed the 400-yard passing mark this season.

Chuck Pagano's club has dominated away from Lucas Oil Stadium with two blowout victories over the 49ers and Jaguars. In the pair of routs, the Colts outscored San Francisco and Jacksonville by a combined 64-10, while cashing the 'under' each time. Indianapolis owns a perfect 3-0 SU/ATS record since last season in the road favorite role, but does include two resounding victories over Jacksonville.

San Diego has put together a 3-0-1 ATS ledger as an underdog in Mike McCoy's debut season, while blowing two second half leads in losses to Houston and Tennessee. In the last home contest back in Week 4, the Chargers rallied from a 21-10 deficit to beat the Cowboys, 30-21 as one-point 'dogs. However, San Diego's defense ranks near the bottom of the league by allowing over 400 yards a game, while giving up 117 yards a game on the ground. The Colts enter Monday's contest averaging 142 yards rushing, which ranks fourth in the league.

These two teams are meeting for the first time since 2010, when the Chargers whipped the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium, 36-14 as two-point road underdogs. Rivers threw for just 185 yards, but the San Diego defense intercepted Peyton Manning four times, while limiting the Colts' offense to just 24 yards rushing. Since 2005, the Chargers have won five of the past six matchups with the Colts, while the underdog has cashed each of the last six times.

Even though Luck hasn't played on a Monday night in his pro career, the Colts have dominated on this day. Since 2005, Indianapolis has cashed seven of eight times on Monday night, while winning six times straight-up. The Chargers own a 7-5 SU/ATS record on Monday night since 2006, which includes the opening week loss to Houston in which San Diego squandered a 28-7 lead in a three-point defeat.

This game opened up as a pick-em, but the Colts currently sit between a 1½ and 2-point road favorite depending on the book. The total is hovering between 49½ and 50, as the contest kicks off at 8:30 PM and can be seen nationally on ESPN.

Sunday recap:

Favorites went 10-2 SU and 6-6 ATS, as Green Bay, Cincinnati, Seattle, and Denver all won but didn't cover as 'chalk.' The Broncos never came close to cashing as 26-point favorites against the winless Jaguars, as Jacksonville trailed by two points with five minutes left in the third quarter before Denver blew it open. The Seahawks had to overcome a fumble return for a touchdown at the end of the first half by the Titans in a 20-13 home victory as 12½-point favorites.

The 'over' went 7-4-1, as the lone 'push' came in the Carolina/Minnesota contest that closed at 45. The Patriots and Saints were set to finish 'under' the total, but Tom Brady's late touchdown pass eclipsed the 'over' of 51 in a 30-27 triumph. Denver (6-0) and Minnesota (4-0-1) are the only two teams in the league not to compile an 'under' this season, while Oakland owns a league-high five 'unders' in six games.

NFL: Streaks, Tips, Notes

Indianapolis Colts at San Diego Chargers

Have to admire Indianapolis for the impressive 34-28 win over previously unbeaten Seattle last week. Luck threw for 229 yards with 2 touchdown passes against the Seahawks and is now 15-6 as an NFL starter with an amazing nine late-game rallies. San Diego, on the other hand, is coming off an ugly 27-17 loss in Oakland which saw Rivers hit 35-of-48 for 411 yards, 2 TD's but the pivot also chucked 3 interceptions in the loss. This is a good matchup for Luck and his receivers. Bolts' pass defense is a sieve allowing 6.9 passing yards per play (222.0 PYG). Luck and the Colts having their way with West Coast teams this season defeating Raiders' and heavy weight's 49ers', Seahawks' makes them a tempting proposition. But, this could be a bit of a trap game for the squad as they look ahead to a date with Denver next week in Manning's return to Indianapolis. A few sports betting nuggets to chew on - Home favorites have thrived on Monday Night over the past few years. Since 2010 the home favorite has been a decent play posting a 20-15-1 ATS mark. However, home favorites of 3.5 or less are just 5-9 ATS. One final tid-bit, looking at how teams did off a road loss as a favorite got to like Bolts chances as league wide this season teams in the situation are 7-1 ATS including a sparkling 5-0 ATS when playing in front of the home crowd.
