New York Giants 2017 NFL Betting Guide

Posted by Eric Williams on Wednesday,June 14, 2017 1:45, EDT in

The New York Giants may have failed to win the NFC East in 2016, but they’ve got some high hopes heading into 2017 after recording 11 wins a year ago to reach the postseason. The G-Men were mostly phenomenal on defense a year ago, but need to address a rushing attack that was completely non-existent a year ago.

No matter how you expect Eli Manning and company to do this coming season, there are a handful of matchups on New York’s 2017 docket that unequivocally qualify as must-bet matchups no gridiron gaming enthusiast should miss out on wagering on. Here is a look at the Giants’ 2016 stats, followed by my NFL betting analysis on their six, must-bet games on their 2017 schedule.

Week 1

Giants at Cowboys (-5)

Analysis: After sweeping the Dallas Cowboys last season, I’m thinking the G-Men get their 2017 party started right by beating the hated Boys again, although I’m thinking a field goal finish is more like it!

Pick: Dallas +5 Points

Week 7

Seahawks at Giants (PK)

Analysis: The G-Men might be at home, but there’s a reason New York isn’t favored and it’s because Seattle is a better team when it comes to all three phases. Russell Wilson and company get the road win in the Big Apple.

Pick: Seattle as a Pick ‘Em

Week 12

Giants at Redskins (-1)

Analysis: The Giants beat the Skins 19-10 in Washington in Week 17 but lost to their longtime NFC East division rivals 29-27 at home in Week 3. In 2017, I think both teams win at home, making the Redskins the pick in this matchup.

Pick: Washington -1 Point

Week 13

Giants at Raiders (-3)

Analysis: This matchup will be all about New York’s defense versus Oakland’s high-powered offense. New York will try its best to contain Derek Carr and company, but they won’t score enough points to make a win stand up. I like the Raiders to get the win in a thrilling, high-scoring affair.

Pick: Oakland -3 Points

Week 14

Cowboys (-1) at Giants

Analysis: I know the Cowboys are the favorites to win the NFC East in 2017 after doing so a year ago, but just like last season, I’m sensing another regular season sweep for the G-Men over Dallas as they get the home win in Week 14.

Pick: Giants +1 Point

Week 15

Eagles at Giants (-3.5)

Analysis: New York split with Philadelphia a year ago with the longtime division rivals both winning at home. I’m thinking 2017 will produce a repeat of the annual two-game series.

Pick: Giants -3.5 Points
