The New York Giants and Detroit Lions do battle Sunday in week 11 NFL action from MetLife Stadium.
The Detroit Lions will try to build on their back-to-back wins after a 31-30 win over Chicago in their last game. Jared Goff has thrown for 2,277 yards, 15 touchdowns and 7 interceptions on 63.8% passing while Jamaal Williams leads the Lions with 604 rushing yards and 9 touchdowns and D’Andre Swift also has 253 rushing yards this season. Amon-Ra St. Brown leads the Liones with 49 grabs for 518 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns while Josh Reynolds has 357 receiving yards and Kalif Raymond has 302 receiving yards as well on the year. On defense, Alex Anzalone leads the Lions with 72 total tackles including 44 solo tackles. Aidan Hutchinson has a team-high 5.5 sacks as well this season for Detroit.
The New York Giants will hope to build on a 24-16 win over Houston in their last game. Daniel Jones has thrown for 1,596 yards, 8 touchdowns and a pair of interceptions on 65.8% passing while Saquon Barkley has a team-high 931 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns. Darius Slayton leads New York’s receiving group with 327 receiving yards while another seven Giants have 100+ receiving yards as well on the year.. On defense, Julian Love has a team-high 65 total tackles including 41 solo tackles while Dexter Lawrence has a team-high 5 sacks this season.
Detroit is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games in November and 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games against the NFC while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games following an ATS win. New York is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games while the under is 8-0 in their last 8 games in November.
I get the case to be made either way here, but I’m looking at the over. Detroit’s a solid team with a solid offense, but the defense has been dreadful for the Lions all year long, I think this is a prime spot for the Giants to have a breakout offensively, but I also think the Lions likely get their fair share as well. Give me the over here.
