Tonight, the Giants and Colts close out this week’s NFL odds. We have to search for value in all places, including adding some prop plays to our NFL picks tonight.
Trent Richardson TD Scored
After missing or being limited in the last few weeks, Trent Richardson did not find himself on the Colts’ injury report this week, and it looks as if the extra day of rest is doing him some good, because he will play this week. One of the most popular options on the table is for Richardson to score a touchdown, and these NFL odds are subsequently good because of it. With Richardson healthy, the Colts are going to give him at least 15 carries and all of the goal line work outside of third down, which means he should have a few chances tonight to break the plane. If he does bet365 will payout +110, a nice bargain for a guy that has a better chance to score than some of the other players listed by bet365. Richardson has been incredibly undervalued all season, but don’t fall into the trap of thinking he isn’t any good. He will get into the end zone this week, and cash for our NFL picks.

Time of first touchdown
I’m going with a team prop for my second play of the night, and at bet365 they have the eight-minute mark of the first quarter as the over/under for the first touchdown. Both of these teams have the ability to score quickly, and they will try and put it on display this week. Neither is playing exceptional, but their offenses are much better than their respective defenses. Andrew Luck and the Colts should have no issues moving the ball on the Giants, and on the flip side, even though the Colts defense is stronger this season, they are not unbeatable. It probably will come from the Colts side, but I see the first touchdown happening before the seven-minute mark of the first quarter. One of these quick-strike offenses will get a score early in the game.

Giants total FGs O/U 1 ½
Normally I like to touch on the total field goals for the game, however I am sticking with one side tonight, and going with the Giants and Josh Brown. On the surface this doesn’t look like a great NFL Odds value. Brown has failed to kick or make a field goal in four of the Giants’ games this season, however if you looks deeper into that, you’ll notice the G-Men’s offense kicks a lot more at home. Recently in their last two home games, Brown has kicked and made six field goals for the Giants’ offense, and with a solid defense coming to town tonight, they might find themselves having to settle for three points more often than touchdowns. Plus the NFL odds value from bet365 is really good again at +110. Look for the Giants to stall some in the red zone, leaving Brown to cleanup the mess, and for us to cleanup the win.
