Washington Football Team (1-4, 1-4 ATS) vs. New York Giants (0-5, 3-2 ATS)
The New York Giants, who have been the NFL’s worst team since 2017 and abysmal at home, are rare favorites against Washington Football Team this Sunday when it’s the New York Giants vs. Washington Football Team at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The big question for Washington is the starting quarterback spot. After demoting Dwayne Haskins to the No. 3 spot and promoting Kyle Allen, Allen got hurt in the second quarter against the Los Angeles Rams last week, forcing Alex Smith to return following a leg injury two years ago that nearly resulted in the leg being amputated. Antonio Gibson is leading Washington in rushing with 213 yards and three scores, and Terry McLaurin has 413 receiving yards and a score.
The Giants, after being held without touchdowns in losses to San Francisco and the Rams in Weeks 3 and 4 respectively, put up 34 points against Dallas’s soft defense, but the G-Men allowed 37 as the Cowboys escaped with a win thanks to a last-second field goal. Despite all those points, Daniel Jones only threw for 222 yards and no touchdowns, but more importantly, he threw no interceptions. Devonta Freeman finally showed life in the running game after Saquon Barkley’s injury in Week 2, rushing for 60 yards and a touchdown.
WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM VS. NEW YORK GIANTS ODDS AND TRENDS
These are the two worst offenses in the NFC—in terms of both yardage and points—so under the over/under total of 43 is always worth a look, especially because even though the Giants put up a lot of points last week, they still only gained 300 total yards. The Giants have also lost 11-straight October games dating back to Week 6 of the 2017 season. The G-Men, however, did defeat Washington twice last season and have won and covered four of the last five meetings. Washington is 2-8 straight-up (4-6 ATS) in their last 10 road games, including 0-3 this season.
