Seahawks vs. Giants Prediction
Will the Seahawks' offensive problems continue on Sunday afternoon when they visit the Giants at 4:25PM ET?
Who: Seahawks (3-2) at Giants (1-5)
When: 4:25PM ET, Sunday, October 22
Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under is currently sitting at 40 points after hitting the board at 38.5. As for the point spread, the Seahawks opened as 7.5-point road favorites but the line has dropped a full three points down to 4.5 at the majority of online sports books.
Public Betting Information
Even though the Giants picked up their first victory of the season last week by beating the Broncos outright as a 14-point road underdog, public bettors are still backing the Seahawks in this matchup. Still, it's not by much. As of this writing, 53% of public bettors are laying the points with Seattle.
Key Betting Trends
The over is 5-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams while the favorite is 5-1 against the spread in the last six meetings and the Seahawks are 3-1-1 at the betting window in their last five trips to East Rutherford. Seattle, however, is 1-6 against the number in its last seven road games and has failed to cover the spread in five of its last seven conference games. On the other side, the Giants are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games following a win.
Despite the over cashing in this series, I like the under because of Seattle's problems offensively. The Seahawks rank almost in the middle of every offensive category this season, including 16th in total yards (337.6), 16th in passing yards (228.4), 15th in rushing yards (109.2) and 16th in points per game (22.0). While they have had their issues against the run, they're still only allowing 17.4 points per game this season. The under looks like a great play.
