A pair of 3-3 teams will take to the field on Sunday when the New York Giants and Los Angeles Rams take a trip across the pond to play at Twickenham Stadium in London in an intriguing Week 7 matchup. Now, let’s find out which team is offering the most value in the NFL odds.
Here’s a Look at the NY Giants vs Los Angeles Betting Pick, Odds & TV Info
First Session in England
— Los Angeles Rams (@RamsNFL) October 19, 2016
Why Bet on the LA Rams?
Los Angeles (3-3 SU, 3-3 ATS) has an elite defensive line and running back. The Rams have dropped two straight and were on the wrong end of a heartbreaking 31-28 loss against Detroit while narrowly failing to cover the NFL betting line as a 2.5-point underdog.
Los Angeles is averaging just 18.3 points per game to rank an uninspiring 29th in scoring while also allowing 22.8 points per game to rank 17th in points allowed. Veteran quarterback Case Keenum hasn’t been bad at all in completing a solid 62.5 percent of his passes for 1,417 yards with seven touchdowns. Keenum however, has been plagued by six costly interceptions.
Receivers Kenny Britt and Brian Quick have combined for 757 receiving yards and five touchdowns while second-year running back Todd Gurley has rushed for a team-high 346 yards and three touchdowns.
Pro Bowl defensive lineman Aaron Donald has recorded a team-high three sacks and defensive back Mark Barron has snatched two interceptions.
Why Bet on the NY Giants?
The Giants have the better quarterback and best position player in Odell Beckham Jr. New York (3-3 SU, 1-3- 2 ATS) snapped its three-game losing streak by beating Baltimore 27-23 this past weekend to narrowly cover the spread as a 3.5-point favorite. The Giants are averaging a modest 19.3 points per game to rank 25th in scoring while allowing 21.8 points per game defensively to rank a respectable 14th in points allowed.
Two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Eli Manning is completing an impressive 64.8 percent of his passes for 1,788 yards with eight touchdowns, but he has also tossed six mostly costly interceptions. Manning has thrown at least two touchdown passes in five of his last 10 games.
Receivers, Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard have combined for 823 receiving yards and five touchdowns while veteran running back Shane Vereen has rushed for a team-high 147 yards and one touchdown.
Linebacker Jonathan Casillas leads the team with 52 tackles while safety Landon Collins has recorded two sacks and fellow defensive back Janoris Jenkins has snatched two interceptions.
My Betting Pick & Final Score Prediction
For this Week 7 matchup in London, I’m going to urge you to back the New York Giants mostly because the G-Men have the more explosive offense and better quarterback. Odell Beckham has looked really solid the last two weeks after some early season temper tantrums and I believe he will be on the receiving end of at least one huge touchdown pass from Manning in this Week 7 affair.
The Rams have dropped two straight while giving up 30 points or more in both contests and have been held to 19 points or less twice in their last three games.
With New York going 5-0 SU and ATS in their last five meetings against the Rams, I say back Eli Manning and company to get it done across the pond!
