Why Bet on the New York Giants?
To the surprise of many football fans, the New York Giants have won three of their first four contests of the 2022 season, recently pulling off a 20-12 home win over the Chicago Bears, 20-12. First-year head coach Brian Daboll has the G-Men right in the thick of a stacked NFC East where fellow 3-1 division rivals the Dallas Cowboys and the unbeaten Philadelphia Eagles reside.
Who needs Daniel Jones (8-of-13, 71 passing yards) throwing the ball when stud running back Saquon Barkley is out for vengeance? Barkley ran the ball 31 times against Chicago and amassed 146 rushing yards, which gives the second-overall pick from the 2018 NFL Draft the most rushing yards amongst all RBs to date with 469. However, scoring remains a struggle for New York, as the team is only averaging exactly 19 points of offense per contest.
The Giants’ defense has been suspiciously competent, allowing just an average of 17.8 points to their opponents. Then again, they’ve faced weaker opposition to start the season against the likes of the Panthers and Bears. This stop unit will be put to its toughest test yet in a challenging road matchup across the Atlantic against the defending league MVP.
Why Bet on the Green Bay Packers?
Make that three straight wins now for the Green Bay Packers, who barely escaped with a 27-24 overtime victory over the visiting New England Patriots in Week 4. Although it appears that the reigning NFC North champs have gotten over their Week 1 loss to the Vikings, they’ve only won their last two games five points combined.
Aaron Rodgers had another meager outing for his standards, completing 21 of 35 passes for 251 yards and two passing touchdowns. Rodgers continues to adjust to his new receiving corps, but at least he’s being bailed out by running back Aaron Jones, who ran for 110 rushing yards with an average of 6.9 yards-per-carry against the Pats.
After shutting down the Bears and the Buccaneers to under 13 points apiece the past couple of weeks, the Packers’ defense took a step back in Week 4 after making New England’s rookie backup quarterback Bailey Zappe look like an upgrade to Mac Jones. Nonetheless, Green Bay’s D still ranks fifth in the league allowing an average of 294.8 points per game to their opponents.

Giants vs. Packers Expert Betting Predictions
If this game was played in Lambeau Field and not in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, then the Packers would be an easy pick to win regardless of the spread. That being said, the Giants have a ton of grit under the new coaching regime of Daboll and are very much capable of covering the relatively large spread to date even if they come out on the losing end of a tightly-contested affair in the UK.
