Why Bet on the New York Giants?

These two played in NFL Week 16. Like this game, the contest happened in Minnesota. The Giants’ offense performed well in the matchup.

QB Daniel Jones threw for 334 yards, a TD, and a pick. Saquon Barkley rushed for 84 yards and a TD from 14 carries. Barkley also caught 8 passes for 49 yards.

Based on those stats, the Giants offense should have no trouble moving the football on Sunday.

In the week 16 contest, the Giants’ defense played well versus a strong Minnesota offense. New York held Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins to 299 passing yards and 3 touchdown throws.

The Vikings rushed for 83 yards from 19 carries. If the Giants want to have any shot of beating the Vikings, they must do a better job of stopping Justin Jefferson.

Why Bet on the Minnesota Vikings?

Minnesota required a 61-yard field goal from Gregg Joseph to beat the New York Giants. But just because Joseph had to bail out the Vikings, it doesn’t mean Minnesota’s offense didn’t play well.

The Kirk Cousins to Justin Jefferson connection lit up the Giants’ D. Jefferson caught 12-of-16 targets for 133 yards.

JJ wasn’t the only star in the game. Tight-end TJ Hockenson caught 13-of-16 targets for 109 yards. Hockenson scored 2 touchdowns. Jefferson scored 1 TD.

In the first head-to-head, Minnesota’s defense didn’t play well. The Vikings’ D allowed 24 points and gave up 126 rushing yards.

The Giants’ rushers averaged 6 yards per carry. Minnesota did a decent job sacking Jones twice, but the yards allowed came out to 460.

Giants vs. Vikings Expert Betting Predictions

This will be a close game. But the Giants are the pick against the spread.

Although the Vikings have the much better wide receiver in Justin Jefferson and gets to play this game on their field, the Giants sacked Kirk Cousins 4 times in the previous contest. Also, Brian Daboll knows how make adjustments game to game.

If you don’t believe Daboll is an adjustments making master, look at the second game versus the Eagles compared to the first. In the first, Philadelphia dominated. But in the second, the Giants held the Eagles to 22 points in a 22-16 loss.

Daboll will enter this game with the perfect strategy. NYG has a chance to win this one straight up, which is why taking the points makes sense.
