Among the many intriguing Week 2 matchups around the NFL, few rival the glitz and glamor of "The Manning Bowl" as Denver (1-0) heads east to play the turnover-happy New York Giants (0-1).
After seeing the way Denver demolished defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore last week behind Peyton Manning's 7 touchdowns, it might seem difficult to lay the money on a Giants team that turned it over seven times in a sloppy loss to Dallas, even with NYG getting 4.5 points as a home underdog. In fact, according to the ESPN Pick Center, so far 61.7 percent of the public is betting on the Broncos to cover. But is that the way to side in this one?
