Redskins Giants Betting Tips – Redskins And Giants Renew NFC East Rivalry

Posted by Tony Bryant on 10/15/2012 6:59:14 PM

The Washington Redskins and the New York Giants are both very much in the hunt for the NFC East Division lead. The two teams will lock horns this weekend on the Giants' home field.

Why Washington Will Win

In much the same way that an online poker game is unpredictable, the NFL is as well. A lot of pundits thought that the New York Giants had very little chance against the San Francisco 49ers this past weekend, but Big Blue had other ideas. New York's defense got a great forward push at the line of scrimmage, overpowering San Francisco's offensive line and setting the stage for a Giant victory. New York's secondary was at its ball hawking best, turning San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith into a lost, listless and wandering soul on the field.

Why is this part of the larger intellectual architecture that suggests the Washington Redskins should beat the Giants? The logic is simple: The Giants very rarely do precisely what is expected of them. New York, the same team that won the Super Bowl last season, is also the team that lost at home to the 7-9 Seattle Seahawks and, yes, the Washington Redskins. New York plays down to the competition when it faces inferior teams just as much as it plays up to the competition when it plays superior teams. This is a classic letdown scenario for the Giants. They used so much mental energy against the 49ers and treated that game as something of a Super Bowl. They now need to move on from that game, but the recent history of the Giants says that they're going to be really flat for this contest.

Washington is already a much better team than it was last year, for a very simple reason: Quarterback Robert Griffin III – as shown on his incredible scramble for a touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings this past weekend – is a special field general and athlete. With Griffin in the mix, the Redskins should be able to score a fair amount of points against the Giants' formidable defense. A strong effort from the Redskins' defense – with a few takeaways in particular – should be enough to take down the Giants in New Jersey.

Why New York Will Win

When NFL betting commentators give this game a thorough examination, they will still come back to a very simple theme and reality: New York has more talent than Washington. The Giants proved how skilled they are in their clinical 26-3 takedown of San Francisco this past Sunday. New York's defense smothered a solid 49er offense, stuffing San Francisco's running game and asserting total control of the line of scrimmage. As long as New York doesn't turn the ball over, it should be able to outmuscle and outmaneuver Washington at every turn in this game.

Who Will Win

It’s tempting to pick Washington outright on the money line, but at the very least, the Redskins should cover the number. New York will dig out a win by a field goal, though.
