Giants vs. Steelers Week 12 Odds
NEW ORLEANS, LA (The Spread) – Two NFC teams with playoff aspirations will square off on Monday Night Football tonight when the Saints host the Giants at 8:30PM ET.
NEW YORK: Suddenly things don’t look so good for the Giants in the NFC East. They’ve dropped two in a row, with their latest defeat coming at the hands of the Eagles in a sloppy 17-10 game. With Dallas' narrow win over Miami on Thanksgiving Day, New York now faces pressure to win in order to keep things tied in the division. If they lose, they'll fall one game back of the Cowboys after once holding a two-game lead. That said, with Philadelphia quickly fading from playoff contention, at least it's only a two-team race in the NFC East and not a three-team race.
NEW ORLEANS: Thanks to their 26-23 win over the Falcons in Week 10, the Saints headed into their bye week in sole possession of first place in the NFC South. They’re now 7-3 on the year and 6-4 against the spread. Drew Brees leads the team with 3,326 passing yards while Darren Sproles has a team-high 348 rushing yards and Jimmy Graham has six touchdowns.
ODDS: Oddsmakers have installed the Saints as a 9-point favorite against the Giants, while the over/under total for this game is currently sitting at 51. New York enters this contest 6-4 and is 3-2 on the road, while New Orleans is 7-3 overall and 4-0 at home.
TRENDS: The favorite is 6-1 against the number in the last seven meetings between these two teams while the home team is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings overall. The under, meanwhile, is 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings between the Giants and Saints.Want More From TheSpread.com? Follow us on Twitter and Facebook or Subscribe to Our News Feeds!
