Giants vs. Broncos Pick

The nightcap on Thanksgiving features the New York Giants traveling west to take on the Denver Broncos at 8:20PM ET on Thursday night.

Bet NFL Week 12

The Giants defeated the Falcons 34-31 in overtime as a 7-point favorite in Week 11, while the combined score went over the posted total of 46.5. Eli Manning threw for 384 yards with three touchdowns and an interception for the Giants, while Mario Manningham caught six passes for 126 yards.

The Broncos lost their fourth straight game last week when they fell to the Chargers 32-3 as a 6-point underdog on Sunday. The combined score fell under the posted total of 41.5, while quarterback Kyle Orton passed for 171 yards with an interception for Denver. Knowshon Moreno rushed for 80 yards on 10 carries.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made the Giants 7-point road favorites over the Broncos in Week 12. The over/under total for this game has been set at 42 points.

The Broncos may have lost four in a row, but oddsmakers are giving the home team too many points in this matchup. The Giants are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games and 1-4 straight up. They also lost their last trip to Denver, 31-20.

The Giants are making a cross-country trip on short rest and short preparation time. Their defense didn’t play particularly well last Sunday and Orton is probable to play this week. Denver is primed for a cover.

Take the Broncos +7 and the over, as the total has hit in four of Denver’s last six games when playing the Giants.

Our NFL Week 12 Free Pick for this matchup is: DENVER BRONCOS +7 and OVER 42.
