Why are the Giants a good bet at +7?


It’s only a matter of time before the Giants’ offense gets on track. New York’s offense only averages 18 points per game. It’s an understatement to say that’s a disappointment. After drafting running back Saquon Barkley and signing left tackle Nate Solder, the Giants appeared to have one of the top offenses in the NFL.

They might still, but the offense must gel. Who’s to say it doesn’t gel this Sunday in Week 5 against a Panthers’ defense that allows 110 rushing yards per?

Why are the Panthers a good bet at -7?

Are the Panthers a safe bet for NFL Week 5?
The Panthers got an extra week to prepare for the New York Giants. Carolina also used that week to rest star players quarterback Cam Newton and running back Christian McCaffrey.

McCaffrey’s quietly turned into one of the top running backs in the NFL. He’s averaging 5.9 yards per carry. Plus, he’s caught 22 passes in 4 games for 157 yards. McCaffrey and Cam should move the football against a bad Giants’ defense.

Final NFL Betting Analysis for Giants at Panthers


It’s difficult to know why the Giants’ offense has had trouble scoring points. On paper, there are few offenses with the talent that the Giants possess. The best wide receiver in the NFL, Odell Beckham Jr., plays for the Giants while Eli Manning can still throw the football, and Saquon Barkley’s looked good when he’s had a chance to rush with the ball.

It looks like the problem stems from the play-calling. The Giants are running out of time if they wish to have any shot of making the playoffs. New York must step it up this Sunday. Expect the Giants to do different things on offense this week, which means they should score more points and keep this closer than the spread.
