Why New York Will Win
When an online casino does business, it gets a lot of speculation from interested fans. Here's a bit of speculation on how the Giants can go into Baltimore and win this weekend: Losing to Atlanta this year is not that embarrassing (even though a 34-0 loss stings), because the Falcons are having a banner season. In contrast to those soaring birds in Georgia, the Baltimore Ravens are struggling because of injuries on their defense, especially in the secondary.
The Giants on the other hand are just having what any fan of theirs knows is a normal season for them, and because that is true, the football betting community knows that with this team and its "win some, lose some" pattern of play, the one thing that is always true is that the Giants almost always win when they really need to. They might produce a face-plant in one week, but they'll shrug it off and get the job done when the pressure's on them. Now that it's getting down to the end of the year they do need to win to make sure they get a spot in the playoffs.
The last factor to consider is that Eli Manning seems to be having one of those seasons that is going back and forth. He throws awful interceptions in one game, but in the next game, he demonstrates his ability to make the great plays that can win games for his team. Last week against the Falcons was a miss, so if you were a betting person, this week against the Ravens will probably be a game in which Eli is on the mark again, and that means a New York win against a Ravens team in freefall.
Why Baltimore Will Win
In the high-stakes poker tournament that is the NFL regular season, here's the winning hand the Ravens carry into Sunday afternoon's matchup against the Giants: This team is also in the hunt to make sure it gets that playoff spot it has worked hard to get a chance at. What makes the Ravens' journey impressive this season is that it has been felled by so many key injuries to so many defensive players at so many different points along the way.
Despite all of these problems, the Ravens have still managed to put themselves in a place that enables them to be contenders for this postseason and the AFC North title. Baltimore is a resilient club, one that has made the AFC Championship Game in two of the past four seasons. All of this is something that tells you about the overall talent and heart of this team – the Ravens can never be counted out, even though plenty of Americans are doing exactly that after the blowout loss to Denver this past Sunday.
Who Will Win
The Giants have proven that they can rise to the moment in spots such as this one. Moreover, as poorly as Eli Manning played last weekend against Atlanta, Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco was much worse. The Giants have reason to be worried, but Baltimore is immersed in an all-out crisis and is showing signs of panic.
