Manning returns to Monday Night, where he is 11-3 SU and 10-4 ATS

Last Sunday Peyton Manning returned to the field in historic fashion, becoming just the third quarterback in NFL history to reach 400 career touchdown passes. It was quite a game for both him and the Denver Broncos, as he joined Dan Marino and Brett Favre in the record books, while leading his new team to a 31-19 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. In his Broncos debut, Manning completed 73.1 percent of his passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns.

Tonight it’s another big return, to the Monday night spotlight, where he is 11-3 straight-up and 10-4 against the spread during his career. It’ll be his first Monday night appearance since Nov. 1, 2010, when he led the Indianapolis Colts to a 30-10 win over the Houston Texans.

The Broncos visit Atlanta, and itโ€™s the Falcons laying -3 points, with a total of 51, at Sportsbook.ag, as of 2 p.m. pacific time.

And while the Broncos got off to a fast start with last weekโ€™s victory against the defensive-minded Steelers in Denver, this one could come down to how much Manning magic is left in the 36-year-old’s arm, against the Atlanta Falcons’ electric offense.

What I can tell you is the Falcons better plan on bringing the heat against the first-ball Hall of Famer, who is on winning runs of 9-1 SU and 8-2 ATS on Monday Night Football since 2003.

During his career, in those 14 total appearances on Monday nights, Manning has thrown 29 touchdowns versus 13 interceptions. He’s also completed 66.4 percent of his passes (367-of-492) for 3,746 yards (average of 267.5 yards per game).
