The New York Giants head south to challenge the New Orleans Saints in Week 4. Head coach Joe Judge and his Giants squad continue to struggle as they are yet to secure their first win of the season. In the previous week, they were 4 points shy of a win. It was another close call for the Giants, but they have to keep their heads up and carry on until they start to find their footing again.
Meanwhile, the Saints are coming off a 28-13 win against the Patriots. This puts them on par with the Buccaneers and is currently third in the NFC South. If they get the win here, we might see the team move up the rankings by next week.

Why Bet on the New York Giants?
After a disappointing 1-point loss to the Washington Football Team in Week 2, the Giants now try to recover from a loss to the Falcons in Week 3. After keeping things close up until the first half of the game, they failed to contain their opponents in the final quarter. In their losing efforts, Daniel Jones took the helm, documenting 266 yards on 24 of 35 passing.
He had the trio of Kenny Golladay, Collin Johnson, and Saquon Barkley as his top three targets, producing 64 yards, 51, yards, and 43 yards, respectively. Moreover, Saquon Barkley recorded 51 rushing yards on 16 carries and the only rushing touchdown of the game.
Defensively, Xavier McKinney led the unit with 6 tackles (5 solo), followed by Tae Crowder who had 11 tackles (4 solo). Leonard Williams and Austin Johnson both had 5 tackles (3 solo) and a sack each. Azeez Ojulari closed his night with 3 tackles (1 solo) and 1 sack.
As for the team’s lineup, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton are found on the questionable list. Both are nursing hamstring injuries from their previous appearance. We expect to see Collin Johnson and C.J. Board fill the positions should the starters fail to recover in time.

Furthermore, Chauncey Gardner and Tanoh Kpassagnon combined for 6 solo tackles and 1 sack each.

Giants vs. Saints Expert Betting Predictions
The game goes in the Saints’ favor. Having a better track record in recent weeks, a more consistent roster, and home-field advantage gives Sean Payton and company the edge. If they control the tempo from start to finish, there’s a good chance that we see the team take the victory. However, the Giants are no strangers to covering the spread. We’ve seen the team come close to a win in the past two weeks, and this contest might just present a turning point that surprises everyone. Ultimately, we look forward to an exciting clash between the Giants and the Saints.
