Redskins vs. Giants Free Pick
East Rutherford, NJ (TheSpread) - If the New York Giants want to stay in the NFC East hunt, they must beat teams in their division. Can the G-Men build off the momentum from their win last weekend against the Jaguars and take care of business this Sunday against the Washington Redskins?
According to Week 13 NFL odds and oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com, the Giants are 7-point favorites over the Redskins on Sunday. The over/under total for this game is currently 43.5 points.
The Redskins come into this game with a 5-6 record and are 5-5-1 against the spread according to latest NFL trends. They're 3-2 on the road this year and have covered in three of those five games away from FedEx Field. The under has hit in six of their 11 games overall.
The Giants improved to 7-4 with their win over the Jaguars last Sunday, but they're just 5-6 against the number. They're 4-2 at home this season but have failed to cover in four of their six games at the New Meadowlands Stadium.
NFL Week 13 Free Pick:
The Giants may have the better team but Donovan McNabb has had his way with them over the years. Granted, he's only faced the Giants as an Eagle, but his record against New York speaks for itself. He's faced the G-Men 18 times (including twice in the playoffs) during his 10-plus years in the NFL, and has won 11 of those games. Given those stats, we feel confident taking the Redskins and the points. Eli Manning and the Giants can't stop turning the ball over, so they should provide plenty of opportunities for Washington to get on the scoreboard. The road team is 5-1-1 against the spread in the last seven meetings between these two teams, while Washington is 5-1-1 ATS in its lat seven games as a road underdog. Our pick is the Redskins +7.
