NFL Week 6 Odds & Game Preview: NY Giants vs. Denver Broncos

Written by on October 13, 2017

Sports is at it’s very best when there is high drama involved, and in football, there are few things as dramatic as watching a team sees their season slowly but surely start to fall apart. It is even more dramatic when the team in question was not necessarily one that we expected to see struggle so badly. This is exactly what we are watching with the New York Giants right now, as they have started the season 0-5 and have now lost their most explosive player (Odell Beckham Jr.) for the season due to injury, both huge reasons to not be favorites at the NFL Week 6 Odds.The ship is sinking and there appears to be no way to salvage it. There is now even talk that Eli Manning might be on the way out the door in the direction of Jacksonville, a rumor that Manning himself says is baseless. It may not be up to him if the Giants decide that it’s time to blow this thing up and start heading in another direction.Don’t expect things to get any easier for the Giants this weekend, as they need to head to Denver to take on a very strong Broncos squad.

Why bet on the New York Giants?

Just when you thought that things couldn’t get any worse for the NFL Week 6 Odds underdog New York Giants, Odell Beckham Jr. gets carted off the field after suffering a gruesome ankle injury that ended his season. It effectively ended the Giant’s season too, although it could be argued that they were already on that path before said injury. The big question surrounding this team now is how they will play out the remainder of the season. Will they simply phone it in or will they find a way to come together and gather a bit of respectability before all is said and done? There really is no way to know, but how the Giants play this weekend may give us a clue as to how it will all play out.Denver is always a tough place to play, but the Giants seem to struggle anywhere they go and are just 1-6 SU in their last 7 road games. They are also just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings with the Broncos.

Why bet on the Denver Broncos?

The Denver Broncos are coming off a bye week and will be well aware of the importance of this one given that they are chasing the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West. The Chiefs are looking like the class of the conference, if not the entire NFL, and losing any more ground to them would mean that the Broncos would need to start thinking about the Wild Card. It’s a little early for all of that, though, as they still need to face one another twice this year, but these are still the types of games that the Broncos need to be winning if they are to challenge in the division.Broncos comes in as huge NFL Week 6 Odds favorite against the Giants.The good news for Denver is that they are huge NFL Week 6 Odds favorites. Broncos are perfect at home this season, and are in fact 13-3 SU in their last 16 games at Mile High. They are also an impressive 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

It’s tough to imagine how the Giants are going to be able to create much in the way of an offensive threat, especially when you consider how good the Broncos are on the defensive side of the football. I like the Broncos to win and cover, and I also like the UNDER, albeit only just.Score: New York Giants 10 – Denver Broncos 28
