Why New York Will Win
When playing online poker or other games of chance, you need to have a few factors riding in your favor. Here are the factors that work in favor of the New York Giants this week: Eli Manning is one of the best quarterbacks in the league right now, and he has proven himself as one of the best of all time in terms of creating a fourth-quarter come-from-behind drive to win a game. Tie that in with the strong defensive pressure this team can apply though out an entire game with its defensive front – pressure which always makes it difficult for their opponents to score many points against them – and the Giants have a strong one-two punch. One big key in this matchup is going to be the running game, which most offenses find hard to generate against the Niners.
The Giants' main running back, Ahmad Bradshaw, is going to be full of confidence after last week's game, when he rushed for over 200 yards against the Cleveland Browns. All of these factors add up to a strong chance of the New York Giants winning any game they play. One should also account for the added fact that the Giants have beaten this San Francisco team in the NFC Championship Game last year, giving them extra belief and possibly putting the odds in their favor.
Why San Francisco Will Win
When NFL betting commentators look at this game, they'll mention a few angles that suggest a San Francisco victory: Revenge is a strong personal motivation for anyone, and this team is as big and powerful as any team in the league this year. The new way in which the 49ers are using two different quarter backs for running different styles of offense (Alex Smith in normal passing situations and most plays from scrimmage; Colin Kaepernick for option-based, change-of-pace running plays) is confusing for their opponents' defenses. There is also the fact that they have one of the biggest front lines on their own defense, one that makes it next to impossible to run the ball at all against them. This is something that has been hurting the Giants in the games New York has lost so far this season. The 49ers are also coming off of a big win in which they easily defeated the Buffalo Bills at home. They are sure to feel that they can't be beaten at home by anybody. Put all of these facts together and it just might add up to a winning combination in this game for coach Jim Harbaugh's club.
Who Will Win
This matchup is sure to be the game of the week in week six of the season. Predicting a winner is not easy in this kind of game, as last year's NFC title game clearly showed, but the edge is probably in San Francisco's favor because of home-field advantage.
