Who the Trends Like: The road team is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings. New York is 0-4 ATS in its last four games following an ATS win. Arizona is 4-0 ATS following an ATS loss.
Who We Like: It is difficult to trust either of these teams, but I have to go with the hosts. Although Kerwynn Williams is banged up at running back, the Cardinals do have the game's best playmaker in Larry Fitzgerald going up against a Giants secondary that has taken a snooze much of the season. New York is on a five-game losing skid and on the road here, I expect them to go through the motions. Arizona still has some motivation to finish the season with a respectable .500 record. I trust the Cardinals defense more here and a turnover or two caused by the hosts could very well be the difference.
