The second Manning Bowl kicks off tonight giving props bettors another chance to put their money behind Peyton or Eli. It's been four year since the Manning brothers last met up in a regular season game.
Peyton took that one after leading his Colts to a tight 26-21 victory. It was just as close on the box score as it was on the scoreboard as Peyton passed for 276 yards with a touchdown and a interception, while Eli delivered 247 yards with two touchdowns and a pick.
In Sunday night's rematch the props currently available include passing yards, touchdowns and interceptions.
On the passing yards prop Peyton has been given a 50.5-yard spread at online sportsbook [custom:bodog-link], while both brothers are listed at -115 odds. Judging by the stats from last week Peyton looks like the solid pick even with the 50.5-yard spread to overcome.
[custom:bodog-link] Peyton put up 433 yards against Houston last week while Eli had only 263 versus Carolina. On the touchdown prop Peyton is heavily favored at -250, while Eli is the +195 underdog. Both brothers threw three touchdown passes last week, but Eli's target from last week may not be on the field this week.
Eli hit Hakeem Nicks with all three touchdown passes a week ago, but he's currently listed as questionable with a bad ankle. The last prop, interceptions is the lone prop that favors Eli. The younger Manning brother is a -135 favorite while Peyton is a +105 underdog.
This may seem strange since Eli threw three picks last week and Peyton didn't throw a single one. It's also worth noting that Eli has thrown 91 career picks in 90 games compared to Peyton's 181 picks in 193 games.

The most surprising player in Week 1 of the NFL had to be Arian Foster. He was considered a fantasy sleeper by most experts and exploded in Week 1 for 231 yards and three touchdowns. What will he do for an encore this week against Washington?
According to the rushing total on his props the oddsmakers aren't expecting another explosive day from Foster.
His rushing prop total was set at 85.5 with the over listed at -125 and the under at -105. If the oddsmakers are going to give you a total under 100 yards I'd keep betting the over until a defense stands up and keeps Foster from eclipsing the century mark.
That's not the only Foster prop the books are offering up this week. You can also bet on whether or not you think Foster can put another 200+ yard performance this season and if he does it you'd make some nice cash. If you chose Yes on the prop it pays out at +600. If you think Foster's huge Week 1 was a one time thing you can also snag the No on the prop at -1000.
