Who the Trends Like: The under and the underdog. The under is 11-3 in the last 14 meetings in New York and 9-3 in the last 12 meetings overall. The underdog is also 10-4 against the spread in the last 14 meetings between these two teams.

Who We Like: Washington. Neither of these teams have anything to play for but the Redskins, despite all of their injuries, seem motivated to finish the season strong. The Giants fell 23-0 last week on the road and lost safety Landon Collins to a broken arm. Their defense was already without Janoris Jenkins so their secondary will be ripe for the taking today.

The Redskins are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games versus a team with a losing home record. They're also 12-5 against the number in their last 16 games versus a team with a losing record and are 7-3 at the betting window in their last 10 games played in the month of December. The Giants, meanwhile, are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven home games.
