After struggling through the first three weeks of the betting on NFL season, the New York Giants appear primed and ready to make their move in the NFC East. Consecutive wins over a pair of contenders in the Chicago Bears and the Houston Texans have helped ease the pain of losses to a pair of AFC South teams in the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans, and the Giants now find themselves in a tie for first place in the division with the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles.

NFL Betting: Detroit Lions @ New York Giants

Online Sports Betting: Lions + 10

The Giants will play the Detroit Lions this week, a team that feels it is much better than its 1-4 record. The Lions could very well be 4-1 after three close losses, including the week one game against the Chicago Bears that has the NFL rules committee reviewing the rule that kept Calvin Johnson from scoring a potential game-winning touchdown.

Why To Bet On The Lions?

Ten points is a lot to take when betting on a team that has lost by more than five points only once all year, especially considering the Lions’ refusal to quit in a 28-26 loss at the Green Bay Packers a couple of weeks ago. Detroit looked solid in a 44-6 win over the St. Louis Rams, with quarterback Shaun Hill taking the spotlight and throwing for 227 yards and three touchdowns as the Lions snapped a ten-game losing streak that dated back to last season. Hill became the first Lions’ quarterback since 2005 to win a game in which he threw three touchdown passes without a pick, and if they can get some stability from the position, there is no reason to think that they can’t keep this one close. The Giants looked shaky with turnovers early in the season, and if Detroit’s defense can step up, they should be able to cause some headaches.

Why To Bet On The Giants?

The Giants are looking to maintain pace with the other division leaders in the NFC East before traveling to Texas to take on the Dallas Cowboys one week before their bye. The Giants are coming off their two best performances of the year, and appear to be getting better with every game. New York ranks first against the pass, ninth against the rush so it is no surprise that the team is such a big favorite. However, with consecutive wins and a road trip to Dallas the following week, the Giants could be caught looking too far ahead.

How The Game Will Play Out

Ten football betting points is too much to ignore with a Lions’ team that has been in every game they have played this season, particularly with Eli Manning and the Giants’ inconsistencies over the years. New York will win since Detroit is playing on the road, but the latter will find a way to cover the spread.
