After a winning Platinum Day Sunday (3-2, +$700) looking to cash in again on Monday Night.
St. Louis +7 to win $500 or 5 units
The Rams play the Giants in a Monday Night Football Showdown, and after cleaning up with the Falcons for 7 units on Sunday Night, we look for another lucrative winner to follow that one up. The Rams were decimated with injuries last weekend, but they come into this game with an ATS X-Factor, playing the NY Giants, who have failed to cover many times as favorites. Looking back at last season, the G-Men were torched as favorites, and again just last week in the opener, they failed to cover as favorites. Last season, the Giants were 7-9 ATS, with a 5-6 ATS mark as favorites. Shrinking it a bit more, as home faves, 3-5 ATS, showing 1-4 ATS in their final 5 at home as favorites. At home laying 7 or more, just 1-3 ATS last season, failing to win let alone cover in an expected blowout game for the boys in blue. Now the public is riding the 7 point lay heavily, and there is the statistic noted that the Rams are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 vs. NY. Rams were 7-4 as dogs last year ATS, and should not be taken lightly. I can see both of these teams going 0-2 after tonight, but only one will. That is small in comparison to what we look for...A cover. With that said, teams that were blown out in their previous game playing as dogs against a team that was also blown out previously show unprecedented numbers ATS.
Giants on Monday nights are 0-6 off a SU loss as favorites, and they show a 1-6 ATS mark as faves against an opponent off a SU and ATS loss. The Rams are 7-2 ATS on Monday Night when their opponent is off a double digit SU loss.
