Colts vs Giants Highlights
These two teams haven’t met since 2018, where the Giants might consider themselves unlucky to have lost by a single point after Adam Vinatieri converted an extra point from a 59th-minute Andrew Luck pass to Chester Rogers. Andrew Luck retired in 2019, but his new replacement comes with even more experience than the former Colts favorite. He will no doubt provide new challenges in a series that the Giants are losing 7-12.
The Giants have only won 3 of their last 10 games against this week’s opponents and have given up 38 or more points in 3 of the last 5 games against them. The Giants’ defense will need to be on their best behavior if they are to prevent the floodgates opening again this week. The Colts were mid-table in the most important metrics for the 2021 season. There were notable performance issues in home games, as they lost 5 of the 9 that they hosted.
Indianapolis Colts vs New York Giants has offered some great battles over the years, and we expect this to be no different. Those looking to bet on NFL games might look to the Colts’ 5-3 road record last season for inspiration and bet on the visitors to cover the spread.
