Giants at Washington: Odds, betting lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Washington 20, Giants 17

Money line (?)

These teams are fairly evenly matched, but not for the right reasons. They’ve both been terrible offensively, lacking consistent play at quarterback, but Washington’s defense is superior to New York’s.

For that reason, I’ll take WASHINGTON (-154) to win outright with its defensive line giving the Giants’ pass protectors fits all game long. Giants QB Daniel Jones is good for a turnover or two each week.

Against the spread (?)

After being underdogs in their first meeting, Washington is a 2.5-point home favorite. The Giants have been competitive in their last four games, all of which have been decided by three or fewer points. Washington, on the other hand, has been blown out much more often.

Still, I’m taking WASHINGTON -2.5 (-110) at home, as it relies on its defense to carry the load and win by at least 3 points.

Over/Under (?)

Washington hasn’t topped 27 points yet this season and has scored more than 20 only twice. The Giants aren’t much better, scoring more than 23 points only once. These offenses will remain suspect Sunday, while the defenses step up.

Take the UNDER 42.5 (-106) with the point total coming in below 42.5 points.
