With the NFC East up for grabs the Giants can make the playoffs with a strong finish.
The New York Jets are 6-5 this season and also fighting for a playoff spot in the AFC. The Jets offense is averaging 24.7 points and 356.6 yards per game and they have a plus four turnover ratio.

The Giants are 4-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, 3-1-1 against the spread in their last five games, and 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record. The Jets are 5-1-1 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread and 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six games.
The underdog is 3-1-1 against the spread in the last five meetings of these two.
I expect the Jets to put the hammer down in this one and get the win and cover.
