Giants vs. Ravens Week 16 Prediction
The 5-9 Giants still have an opportunity to win the NFC East but they face yet another uphill climb on Sunday when they visit a Ravens team that has strung together some wins following a mid-season slide. With Baltimore listed as an 11-point home favorite, what’s the best bet today?

New York Giants DFS Spin
Daniel Jones (hamstring) practiced Wednesday. After missing Week 15 against the Browns, Jones was first up in quarterback drills at Wednesday's practice. The Athletic's Dan Duggan said Jones was "moving better than last week" but "still a slight hitch in his gait after he throws." A banged-up Jones starting for New York is no good for Giants pass catchers, as we saw in Week 14 against Arizona. Colt McCoy would get another start if Jones is held out in Week 16 against the Ravens.
Baltimore Ravens DFS Spin
Lamar Jackson completed 17-of-22 for 243 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Ravens' 40-14 Week 15 win over the Jaguars, adding ten rushes for 35 yards and a touchdown. The Ravens did anything they wanted against a depleted Jacksonville defense. Jackson's statistical day could have been even better if he hadn't been removed from the game a few minutes into the fourth quarter with the Ravens leading 40-7. He also had a rushing score taken off the board at the end of the first quarter. Jackson was aggressive from the start, attacking the Jags downfield with shots to Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown. Jackson's strong season-closing run should continue next week against the Giants.
Giants vs. Ravens NFL Week 16 Betting Prediction
The under is a perfect 6-0 in the Giants’ last six games overall, is 4-0 in their last four road games and has cashed in even of their last eight games as a road underdog. The under is also 7-0 in their last seven games following an ATS loss, is 5-0 in their last five games coming off a double-digit loss at home and is 6-1 in their last seven games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous contest. On the other side, the under has hit in four of the Ravens’ last five games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous contest. Baltimore’s defense doesn’t figure to be tested much by New York’s feeble offense.
