The New York Giants have lost seven of their last eight games and should be in tank mode the rest of the way. Eli Manning is completing 62.9 percent of his passes for 23 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Manning has five touchdowns and two picks in his last three games, and the Giants have 40 passing plays of 20 or more yards. Odell Beckham Jr. and Rueben Randle have combined for more than 1,400 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Larry Donnell has 11 of his 55 receptions in his last three games. The Giants ground game is averaging 3.7 yards per carry, as Rashad Jennings leads the way with 603 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, the New York Giants are allowing 25.1 points, 371.3 yards, and they’ve forced 34 sack and 21 turnovers. Jameel McClain leads the Giants with 95 tackles and Jason Pierre-Paul has seven sacks.
The Redskins are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Giants are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The underdog is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings.
The New York Giants have been a much better home team than on the road, as they recently took Dallas and San Fran down to the wire. The Washington Redskins are just a joke and are too caught up in what they're going to do with their quarterback situation. While both teams are lousy, give me New York by a touchdown.
