Giants vs. Vikings Prediction
What's the best bet on the board tonight when the Vikings host the Giants on Monday Night Football at 8:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Vikings are 4-point home favorites versus the Giants after New York opened as a 3.5-point road dog. As for the total, the number moved from 43.5 down to 43 at most sports books.
The Giants are 8-1-1 against the spread in the last 10 games they've played in Week 4 and are 7-3-1 against the number in their last 11 road games. They're also 31-15-2 against the number in their last 48 games played in October but are just 2-5 ATS in their last seven Monday night matchups. They're also just 1-4 against the number in their last five games overall.
The Vikings have been one of the best plays in the NFL for over a year now. They're 36-15 against the number in their last 51 games overall and are 21-8 against the spread in their last 29 home games. They're also 23-8 at the betting window in their last 31 games versus NFC opponents and are 5-0 ATS in their last five games played in October.
OUR PREDICTION: The Giants enter this game severly banged up, as Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has a groin injury and is questionable, Eli Apple is doubtful with a hamstring injury, Nat Berhe is out with a concussion, and Darian Thompson is out with a foot injury. That said, the Giants can get after the quarterback still thanks to Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon and will put pressure on Sam Bradford. The key to a Giants cover tonight is Eli Manning not turning the ball over. The Vikings' outstanding defense has thrived on forcing turnovers and turning them into immediate scores. New York has to play clean and if it does, the Giants will cover.
