Why Bet On The NY Giants at +1.5?
The Giants improved to 3-0 on the preseason by getting past Cincinnati 25-23 the last time out as Eli Manning completed 4 of 8 passes for 41 yards and backup Daniel Jones went 9 of 11 for 141 yards. Running back Wayne Gallman Jr. led the G-Men with 31 rushing yards while Jon Hilliman and Rod Smith each had a rushing touchdown in the hard-fought win. Jones had completions of 35 yards to Brittan Golden and 27 yards to Darius Slayton on a seven-play touchdown drive
“I think it’s time to start asking some questions of the people that didn’t like him,” coach Pat Shurmur said.
Why Bet On New England at -1.5?
The Patriots improved to 3-0 on the preseason by shutting down Carolina en route to an emphatic 10-3 win as Tom Brady completed 8 of 12 passes for 75 yards and Jarrett Stidham went a blistering 15 of 19 for 134 yards. Defensively, the Pats recorded four sacks including one from defensive end Ufomba Kamalu who also recorded a team-high five tackles in the win. Carolina saw starting quarterback Cam Newton go down with an apparent ankle injury in the loss.
“It’s always hard to see them,” Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said of Newton. “We’ve had our fair share of watching and being part of these games. Guys you think are gonna play a big role over the course of the year and then in one play it doesn’t happen that way. … Injuries are part of the game.”

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Giants vs Patriots
New York has been fairly impressive in holding all three of their preseason opponents to 23 points or less, but New England has been even more impressive in not allowing more than 17 points this preseason while holding both, Detroit and Carolina to an identical three points. I know the Giants are a perfect 7-0 ATS in their last 7 road games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall, but New England has gone 40-17 ATS in their last 57 games overall and 39-16-2 ATS in their last 57 home games. I’m going with Jarrett Stidham to outplay Daniel Jones and deeper backups, Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney while New England’s defense comes up big again. I like the Pats to win and cover the chalk.
