Colts rout Jets 41-10 on ESPN's Monday Night Football to get back to .500 and into a tie for the AFC South lead. The ViewFromVegas is they did it after closing as 1-point road underdogs and +100 (even money) on the money line after being a short fave most of the past week. The game also went over the betting total of 48.5 points. Through 23 weeks of the NFL season, favorites/underdogs are 89-89-10 ATS against our VFV consensus closing lines (does not include four games so far this year that closed pick 'em).
