The New York Giants will look to build on their first win of the year with a 32-31 come from behind win against Tampa Bay in their last outing, coming back from 18 points down at halftime to steal the win. Daniel Jones has thrown for 353 yards and 2 touchdowns on 65% passing while Saquon Barkley leads the Giants with 237 rushing yards but it was announced that Barkley will miss 4-8 weeks with a high ankle sprain.

New York is 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 division games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams and 13-3 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams in New York.
The loss of Barkley definitely hurts the Giants, but I was really impressed with New York and Jones in particular with how the Giants found the resolve and rebounded to pull out a win against the Bucs. Washington just doesn’t look good in the early going, as the run game is non-existent and I’m not sure Case Keenum is the guy I trust to lead the Redskins to the promise land. I almost think that if you’re taking the points, you think Washington wins this game outright, and I personally just don’t see it. I’ll lay the points with New York as I think the Giants once again rally around Jones here.
