Giants Patriots Betting – Brady, Manning Set To Meet In Week Nine Battle

When New York Giants’ quarterback Eli Manning told reporters prior to the NFL regular season that he felt he should be considered in the same category of quarterback as Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, the sports betting media was quick to criticize him for what seemed like an unrealistic comparison. Fast-forward to week nine of the season and while the career numbers don’t come close, Manning is ranked third in the NFL in Passer rating just one spot behind Brady as the two quarterbacks are set to go head-to-head this Sunday.

While Brady has completed 67.6-percent of his passes and thrown 18 touchdowns compared to eight interceptions, Manning has thrown for a 64.7 completion percentage with 13 touchdowns and five interceptions. Manning will definitely have some added pressure on him this weekend as he looks to back up his words in a head-to-head matchup that will be crucial for both teams.

The Giants took advantage of home dates against AFC East opponents on either side of the bye, but will get their toughest test when they have to go on the road to take on a talented Patriots’ team. While the New York offense has relied on the running game first to open up things through the air over the years, but things have changed this year as Manning has taken over as the driving force of the offense. But while the offense has overcome injuries to thrive, the defense has struggled, especially on the ground where they rank 28th against the run with an average of 130.1 yards allowed per game.

Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick could game plan against the Giants’ struggles defending the run, but with Brady and the second-ranked passing attack it might not matter how New England attacks on offense. The problem is a Patriots’ pass defense that ranks 32nd in the NFL with an average of 323.1 yards allowed per game, a unit that will need to step up against Manning and New York. New England has done a good job of forcing turnovers in key wins, but have struggled in their sportsbook losses. The Patriots have been nearly flawless in games after losses, and will look to continue that trend.

Giants Patriots Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

After winning 14 games a year ago, New England has been vulnerable against some of the better offenses that they have played, and it has shown in losses to the Buffalo Bills and Steelers. Still, the Patriots have always been strong at home under Belichick and coming off of a loss, so they should be able to get the job done even though it will be a close game until the end.
