Why New York Will Win
When football betting gurus go over the upcoming week of games in the NFL, they will pick the Giants for the following reasons: November is over, and the November curse hovering over New York's NFC team is over as well. If the win over the Green Bay Packers offers any clue as to what the Giants are going to play like in the coming weeks, most of the teams in the league are in trouble when playing them. The week of rest the Giants gained before their blowout of the Packers seems to have done wonders for this team. Eli Manning was especially on top of his game again, and he will probably continue to look good on the field against a Redskins team that is using many replacements on defense because of injuries.
It's not that the Giants don't have any of those same injuries, but their situation is just not that bad on their side of the divide in this matchup. The last thing to point out in favor of New York is that the Giants' defense is back in full form now. This defensive unit, when attacking the passer with vigor, is one of the best in the NFL. The Giants showed what they could do on Sunday, when they humbled an excellent quarterback in the person of Aaron Rodgers. Overall it is probably a relatively safe bet – not a guarantee, but a strong likelihood – to put your money on the New York Giants this coming Monday night.
Why Washington Will Win
Even if you don't care for online casino games, you have to admit that the NFL can be unpredictable at times. Here's how Washington can pull the upset against the Giants: The Redskins are going to have to push themselves hard this Monday if they want to beat the Giants at home, but at least they have the home field advantage in this game. It is really going to be up to quarterback Robert Griffin III for the most part. The Redskins' most brilliant and athletically dazzling player is entirely capable of delivering a top-level performance against the Giants. After all, he torched the Dallas Cowboys in a superb Thanksgiving Day performance. He's operating at the height of his powers and has the elusiveness that can frustrate New York's formidable pass rush.
With Griffin under center, the Redskins have the trigger man for their offense who can outscore Eli Manning and make plays from any spot on the field at any time on the clock. In Griffin's previous game against the Giants, which unfolded in New Jersey, the Redskin rookie played well, but Manning was just a little bit better than him when it came down to the wire. If Griffin can just make an extra handful of key plays, the Redskins can change the equation.
Who Will Win
In this game there really isn't much to think about. Could Robert Griffin play well enough to beat New York? That's a question which deserves a lot of thought. However, every other question you can think of points in Big Blue's favor. The Giants have more experience and talent and are the more sensible choice on Monday. New York is no longer struggling, and that should mean bad news for Washington. The game should be close, but it's hard to pick against the Giants in this situation.
