Online betting players thought that the New York Giants were one of the pre-eminent teams in the NFC, but a two-game losing skid took some of the spotlight off of them. The Giants bounced back with a win, and now have a chance to make a statement when they host their division rivals the Washington Redskins, and with the Redskins in disarray, the Giants can really end Washington’s season while using that as a springboard.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Sunday, December 5th, 1:00 PM ET
  • Where: New Meadowlands Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
  • Pick: New York Giants -7

What’s On The Line

The Redskins (5-6) continued their up-and-down season with a 17-13 loss at home to Minnesota, while the Giants (7-4) needed a late rally to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20 at home, setting up this important NFC East tilt. The Giants are behind only the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East, while the Redskins are only two games behind despite having their tumultuous season, so this will be a big matchup.

Offensive Matchups: Redskins Giants Betting

Washington’s ground game was a mess on Sunday, putting up 29 yards on only 13 carries, and it’s almost like the Redskins don’t even care to run anymore. Donovan McNabb was 21-of-35 for 211 yards, a touchdown and a pick, but he must be feeling like he’s in pass-happy Philadelphia again because calling only 13 run plays is inexcusable. We know that the Redskins have some injuries in the backfield, but to just give up on it is ridiculous. The Redskins are 26th in the league on the ground, and that needs to change if they’re going to get better.

The Giants didn’t have to do much against the Jaguars, and they didn’t have that long to do it as they held the ball for just over 24 minutes. Eli Manning threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns, but he wasn’t picked off, while Brandon Jacobs had a season-high 87 yards on the ground. The Giants are a much better team when Jacobs is running between the tackles as it opens up not only the play-action pass, but it softens up the defense for Ahmad Bradshaw.

Betting Edge: Giants

Defensive Matchups: Redskins Giants Betting

The Redskins are now, statistically, the worst defense in the league, but they did a decent job of holding the Minnesota Vikings to 299 yards. However, they were the first team this year to not force a turnover out of Brett Favre, and they had a bad third quarter. Adrian Peterson was averaging six yards per carry before he left with an ankle injury, thankfully for the Redskins, who seem to be losing their will as the offense continues to be terrible. The talent is there, and Washington’s defense shouldn’t be this bad.

New York’s defense is best when they’re getting to the quarterback, and they sacked David Garrard four times. Rookie Jason Pierre-Paul had the first two sacks of his career as the Jaguars focused on Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck, and he can help a pass rush that covers up a secondary that can be exploited occasionally. When it comes to the Giants, it’s all about the pass rush, which isn’t good news for a Washington line that has struggled, to put it mildly.

Notable Injuries: Redskins Giants Betting

Clinton Portis (groin) is definitely out, while Ryan Torain (hamstring) should be questionable, which means another poor week for the running backs. The secondary could be in trouble as well, as safety LaRon Landry (Achilles) didn’t play last week, and corner Carlos Rogers (hamstring) had to leave the Minnesota game for the Redskins.

Injuries to receivers Steve Smith (pectoral) and Hakeem Nicks (leg) forced the Giants to lean on the rushing attack, which isn’t always a bad thing. Cornerback Will Solomon (chest) will be watched closely by the Giants.

Betting Edge: Draw

Outlook and Pick: Redskins Giants Betting

NFL betting odds have the Giants as a touchdown favorite at home, and they’re 4-1 SU in their last five games at home against the Redskins, along with a 3-1-1 ATS record. The Giants are 2-4 ATS at home, and they’re 3-4 ATS as a favorite, while the Redskins are 6-3-1 as an underdog, and 3-2 ATS away from home. We’re going to go against the grain and take the Giants with the points at home this week, because the Washington offense is really bad, and if they can’t rush the ball, New York’s pass rush is going to come at them even harder, complete with more blitzes, and the Washington line can’t protect McNabb. Washington’s defense is getting soft in the middle, which means the New York ground game could possibly have a field day. Go with the Giants in your sports betting picks.

Stan’s Pick: New York Giants
