New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins, 10/28/18 Predictions & Odds

The New York Giants have fought against the notion that they’re a team in tank mode. They can prove their detractors wrong on Sunday by knocking off division rival Washington but will they? Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. ET.

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Redskins are 1-point favorites to beat the Giants. The total, meanwhile, sits at 42.5 points. As of this writing, 66% of the public betting tickets are on the Redskins to cover the point spread.

Washington Redskins

Alex Smith completed 14-of-25 passes for 178 yards and one touchdown in Washington's Week 7 win over the Cowboys. In vintage Smith fashion, his only score on the day came on a 23-yard screen pass to change-of-pace back Kapri Bibbs. No receiver topped 43 yards for Washington. Dallas' secondary admittedly presents a tough matchup, but it is the second straight week Smith's failed to exceed 175 passing yards. Given the club's run-first grind-it-out style of play, Smith should only be used in terrific matchups on paper -- like the one the Redskins face in Week 8 against the Giants.

New York Giants

Eli Manning completed 27-of-38 passes for 399 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 7 loss to the Falcons. Manning had a huge second half, but the offense really struggled in the red zone. Manning didn't throw his touchdown until he heaved a prayer for a one-yard score to Odell Beckham with five seconds left on the clock after Manning failed to score on consecutive QB sneaks from the one-yard line. Earlier in the game, he missed OBJ on an open nine-yard touchdown before the Giants had to settle for a field goal. Manning's 399 yards mark a season-best, but this offense is still broken. Manning won't be a recommended play next week against the Redskins.

NFL Betting Trends

Washington

The Redskins are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games versus the NFC but are 1-4 against the number in their last five road games.

New York

The Giants are 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 conference games.

Prediction

I don’t trust the Redskins, especially on the road, but the Giants are horrible. Despite having Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley at their disposal, they can’t move the ball because of Manning and horrible play along their offensive line. They also claim they’re not tanking but they traded cornerback Eli Apple and Damon “Snacks” Harrison this week so why should anyone believe they’re trying to win games? This feels like a trap game but on Sunday, I’ll be happy I have the better team in a pick’em.
