Dolphins vs. Giants Total Prediction
The Giants were competitive in their loss on Monday night to the Eagles, but does that make them a safe play versus the Dolphins today at 1:00 p.m. ET? The G-Men are laying a field goal as a home favorite.
319 Miami Dolphins (+3) at 320 New York Giants (-3); O/U 46

Miami Dolphins Fantasy Spin
DeVante Parker (concussion) is questionable for Week 15 against the Giants. Parker is trending towards suiting up after practicing in full on Friday. Isaiah Ford (76% snaps in Week 14) and Mack Hollins (14%) would join Allen Hurns in three-WR sets if Parker and Albert Wilson (concussion, questionable) are ultimately sidelined. Parker is the PPR WR22 on the season and should be in starting lineups if active against the Giants' mediocre secondary.
New York Giants Fantasy Spin
Golden Tate (foot) wasn't listed on the Giants' final injury report. Eli Manning's target distribution in his first game with all of the Giants' skill-position talents at his disposal: Darius Slayton (8 targets), Sterling Shepard (7), Tate (5), Kaden Smith (5) and Saquon Barkley (4). Tate and Shepard seem to limit each other's upside, and neither exactly has a great floor either regardless of who is under center. Treat both as upside WR3s against the Dolphins' miserable secondary.
NFL Betting Trends
The Dolphins are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games and are 7-2 against the number in their last nine games overall.
The Giants are just 1-5-1 at the betting window in their last seven home games versus an opponent with a losing road record and are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
Both teams will be selecting in the top 10 next April but there’s not a lot of value with the point spread, which might as well be a pick’em given that the Giants have home field advantage. The Dolphins just played in East Rutherford a week ago when they covered and probably should have beaten the Jets outright as a dog. Given that Miami is 7-6 against the number this season while New York is just 5-8 ATS and coming off a short week, give me the Dolphins. The talent level is about even on both sides, so give me the better coach with Brian Flores.
