New York Giants 2016 NFL Winning Predictions
After missing the postseason in four consecutive seasons and recording a losing record in each of the past three seasons, the ‘new-look’ New York Giants are looking to rebound under new head coach Ben McAdoo in 2016. This killer
New York at Dallas Cowboys (-4)
The New York Giants snapped a five-game losing streak against Dallas by beating their longtime NFC East rivals 27-20 in the second of their two regular season meetings a year ago while covering the spread as a 3-point favorite.
For this regular season opener, I don’t really see the G-Men pulling off the outright upset, but I do like Eli Manning and company to cover the NFL betting line. Every time these two hated rivals meet, it’s a must-bet affair as evidenced by the fact that six of the last 10 matchups have been decided by five points or less.
The Pick: Dallas 30 New York 27
New Orleans Saints at Giants (-4.5)
With Drew Brees and the Saints ranking sixth in scoring last season and dead last in points allowed and New York ranking fourth in scoring and a pitiful 30th in points allowed, you know this is going to be a high-scoring aerial assault of an affair! This Week 2 pairing is a must-bet matchup that is probably best suited for an Over/Under total wager.
The Pick: Giants 35 Saints 31
Washington Redskins at New York Giants (-3)
Analysis: The Giants lost their final four home games in 2015 but that’s one of the main reasons I like them to take care of business in the Big Apple in this Week 3 NFC East divisional battle.
Despite losing the second of their two regular season meetings against the Redskins in their 20-14 road loss, the Giants had won five straight in this longtime series while posting a perfect 5-0 ATS mar over the span.
I’m not real enamored with New York’s hiring of offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo after unceremoniously firing two-time Super Bowl winning head coach Tom Coughlin, but I’m also no big believer in Washington’s Jay Gruden.
In the end, with the G-Men winning four straight and a blistering seven of their last eight home games against the Redskins, I like New York to win and narrowly cover the spread at home in this must-bet meeting!
The Pick: New York 28 Washington 24
New York Giants at Green Bay Packers (-8)
Analysis: Look, while I’m not expecting the Giants to contend for much other than a shot at the NFC East divisional title, (if that) I do like them to cover the NFL betting odds in their Week 5 matchup against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Eli Manning and the G-Men have won three straight against the Packers while covering the spread in four straight and five of their last six against their NFC counterparts. The Giants cover in a high-scoring must-bet affair.
The Pick: Green Bay 35 New York 30
Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants (-3)
Analysis: The Giants and Eagles are both entering 2016 with new head coaches, but at least the Giants will have some continuity with former offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo that Philadelphia won’t with first-time head coach Doug Pederson.
While New York has lost a surprising four straight against the Birds and five of six overall, I like them to snap out of that skid by simply outscoring their longtime NFC East division rivals. While the Giants were a mess defensively last season, they also ranked a stellar sixth in scoring (26.3 ppg), making them my pick to win this must bet matchup and get some revenge in this Week 9 divisional date.
The Pick: New York 31 Philadelphia 24
