Giants vs. Packers Prediction
Will the Packers rout the Giants on Sunday Night Football tonight at 8:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Packers are 7.5-point home favorites versus the Giants while the over/under currently sits at 48.5 points. While Green Bay has danced between -7 and -7.5, the total has gone from 48 up to 48.5.
NEW YORK: The Giants are now just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games after failing to cover as a 4-point road underdog on Monday night in Minnesota. They're also just 2-5 against the number in their last seven games in October, are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games versus a team with a winning record and are 1-5 against the number in their last six games versus NFC opponents.
GREEN BAY: The Packers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games in Week 5, are 4-1 against the number in their last five games overall, and are 10-3 at the betting window in their last 13 games following a bye week. They're 16-5 against the spread in their last 21 games in the month of October as well.
OUR PREDICTION: The Giants are desperate and thus, should be able to muster a better effort than they did on Monday night in Minnesota. They're not going to want to be embarrassed twice on national television in one week, so look for New York to keep the game close and for Odell Beckham Jr. to keep his emotions in check. While Green Bay is outstanding against the run, the Packers can be had through the air so look for Eli Manning and Co. to challenge Dom Capers' secondary all night.
