AVI and MOV are terms that describe two generic web media formats. Each of them has many codecs available to encode (and decode) the file.
If you are getting much smaller sizes with MOV than AVI, it probably means that you are using a better MOV codec than for the AVI.
Phreakdevil is correct that divx codecs provide excellent compression. The downside is that if you want to distribute that AVI, the end user will also have to have the divx codec installed. There are other codecs that are far more common that can also provide good compression. It all depends on what you are trying to do and what you will do with the AVI or MOV once you encode it.
