NFL Free Pick: Take New York. According to latest NFL trends, the Giants are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games versus the Panthers, while the road team is 5-2 against the number in the last seven meetings between these two teams. The Giants are also 7-2-2 ATS in their last 11 games following a double-digit loss at home, while the Panthers are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games.
The Giants have turned the ball over 10 times in their first two games, which has directly factored into their poor play. Look for Eli Manning and Co. to play a cleaner game on the road today against a team in Carolina that has struggled offensively. The Giants are clearly the better team - they just need to stop shooting themselves in the foot.
