Free Pick: NYG/WASH
One of the best matchups on the Week 13 schedule pits division rivals the New York Giants against the Washington Redskins. A win for the Giants will open up a three game lead in the NFC East.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Giants -4 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 42 total points.
Key Trend: The Giants are a fantastic 5-0 against the spread in their last five games, while the Redskins have stumbled to a 1-4-1 ATS mark in their last six games. The total has also gone over in six of the Giants last seven games when playing on the road against Washington.
Key Stat: The Giants are averaging close to 30 points a game while only surrendering 18.1 defensively. They’re also averaging 163.5 yards per game on the ground, while Washington is only averaging 197.8 passing yards a game.
Game Outlook: The Redskins are a hard team to figure out. One week they’re beating division rivals Dallas and Philadelphia, while the next they’re losing to the Rams and Cowboys at home. They seem to rise to the challenge against top tier teams, although there hasn’t been a better road team over the past couple years than the New York Giants. The G-Men are the best team in the NFL and play the run extremely well – which is what the Redskins excel at. New York will take a hobbled Clinton Portis out of the game and force quarterback Jason Campbell to beat them through the air, which he won’t. We think the Giants are a safe bet, and we also like the over 42.
