Monday Night Football betting odds had the New York Giants as a -7 ½ road favorite at and the Cleveland Browns a +9 underdog at Sports Interaction. This allows for a middling opportunity should the Giants happen to win by a score of 8 points. Something to always consider in order to maximize profit potential.

Thus far the Super Bowl champions for 2008 are more than living up to expectations this season as one of only two undefeated teams.

"For us, we couldn't care either way, good or bad, we're not trying to get respect here in September going into early October," linebacker Antonio Pierce said. "For us, it's about getting respect from late December to early January and early February."

Cleveland (1-3) comes off a bye week looking for a second straight victory as it tries to bounce back from an 0-3 start - one that few observers expected after last season. The Browns went 10-6 and narrowly missed the playoffs, but they can now look to the ‘07 Giants for inspiration. New York started 0-2 before winning six in a row and never looked back en route to the championship.

"It inspires the entire league," Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson said. "Everyone talks about it. The way they started and the way they finished gives everybody hope."

Hope won't be all Cleveland needs for its first win over New York since 1985, as the Giants have won five in a row over the Browns. The Giants, whose most recent victory in the series was 27-10 on Sept. 26, 2004, haven't lost in Cleveland since 1973. New York has won eight straight and 10 of 11 road meetings overall.
