Raiders at Giants Pick

With questions surrounding the health of their starting quarterback, the New York Giants will host the Oakland Raiders in East Rutherford on Sunday at 1:00PM ET.

 Bet NFL Week 5

The Raiders dropped to 1-3 on the year with a 29-6 loss to the Texans in Week 4. JaMarcus Russell threw for just 128 passing yards as Oakland failed to cover the 8.5-point spread.

The Giants improved to 4-0 with a 27-16 win over the Chiefs in Kansas City last Sunday. Eli Manning threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns as the Giants covered the 9.5-point spread, but he also injured his foot and his playing status for this weekend is questionable.

Oddsmakers from online sports book BetOnline have made the Giants 16-point favorites over the Raiders in Week 5. The over/under total for this game has been established at 39.

While the Raiders bring little to the table offensively, they’ve actually played decently on defense. They’ve just been stuck on the field too long because Russell and the offense has been stagnant.

With Manning’s health in doubt, we actually like the Raiders to cover the massive 16-point spread. Oakland won’t score much, but the Raiders’ defense should keep things close with Manning hobbled. The Giants will probably rely on Brandon Jacobs to grind out the clock, which only favors the Raiders getting that many points.

Take the Raiders and the under as neither teams should light up the scoreboard.

Our NFL Week 5 Free Pick for this matchup is: OAKLAND RAIDERS +16 and UNDER 39.
