The Line: New Orleans Saints -3.5 -- Over/Under: 49
The New York Giants and New Orleans Saints meet Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The New York Giants look to remain red hot after winning four of their last five games. Eli Manning is completing 64.9 percent of his passes for 1,776 yards, 11 touchdowns and four interceptions. Manning has four passing touchdowns in his last three games. Odell Beckham Jr. and Rueben Randle have combined for 853 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Shane Vereen has 22 receptions. The New York Giants ground game is averaging 95.6 yards per contest, and Rashad Jennings leads the way with 262 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, New York is allowing 22.3 points and 401.7 yards per game. Uani' Unga leads the Giants with 42 tackles, Brandon Meriweather has seven pass deflections and Damontre Moore has three pass deflections. Uani Unga, Victor Cruz and Will Beatty are questionable.
The New Orleans Saints need this big victory in order to get back to a .500 record. Drew Brees is completing 67.6 percent of his passes for 1,871 yards, eight touchdowns and four interceptions. Brees has four touchdown passes in his last three games. Willie Snead and Brandin Cooks have combined for 905 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Benjamin Watson has 29 receptions. The New Orleans Saints ground game is averaging 98.7 yards per contest, and Mark Ingram leads the way with 450 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, New Orleans is allowing 26.4 points and 404.9 yards per game. Stephone Anthony leads the Saints with 45 tackles, Cameron Jordan has six sacks and Delvin Breaux has 10 pass deflections. Damian Swann and Keenan Lewis are questionable.
The Giants are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 20-46-2 ATS in their last 68 games in November. The Saints are 4-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games. The home team is 8-1 ATS in their last 9 meetings.
The Saints seem like they're back on track with wins in three of their last four games. The Giants are also playing better ball, but I don't exactly trust them on the road with all of their injuries and the fact they've lost two of three away from home. New Orleans is usually tough to beat at home and that should continue now that the confidence is back.
Give me the Saints and the reasonable chalk.
