Why Bet The NY Giants To Beat The Rams
The NY Giants showed resilience when they beat the Ravens last week by a 27-23 score. They are now 3-3 SU and 1-3-2 ATS this season. New York scores and average of 19.3 points per game (25th) and give up 21.8 points per game (14th).
QB Eli Manning (1788 yards, 8 TDs & 6 INTs) completed 32 of 46 passes for 403 yards against the Ravens. He threw three touchdowns and was intercepted twice. It helps when you have a one of the top three wideouts in the league. The Giants average 288.2 passing yards per game (3rd).
WR Odell Beckham Jr (35 rec, 581 yards, 3 TDs) had his best game of the season, torching the Ravens secondary with eight catches for 222 yards and two scores.
New York averages 76.0 rushing yards per game (30th). RB Rashad Jennings (40 car, 117 yards, 0 TDs) was ran for a measly 15 yards on nine carries.
New York has the 21st-ranked total defense in the NFL. They allow 267.0 passing yards per game (22nd) and 96.8 rushing yards per game (12th). The Giants have only six sacks this season which is the worst in the league. The Giants D misses JPP’s fingers. Jonathan Casillas has 52 tackles, and Landon Collins has two sacks.
Why Bet The Los Angeles Rams To Beat The NY Giants
The Los Angeles Rams dropped to 3-3 SU and 3-3 ATS after losing 31-28 to the Detroit Lions last week. They average 18.3 points per game (28th) and allow 22.8 rushing yards per game (17th).
“Our offense believes they’re getting better, and I think the numbers are improving. I don’t really care where we’re ranked and all those kind of things, but the Detroit defense had a hard time stopping our offense. As we did their offense. But I expect our defense to bounce back, as the health factor improves”, said Rams head coach Jeff Fisher on a conference call.
QB Case Keenum (1417 yards, 7 TDs & 6 INTs) completed 27 of his 32 passes for 321 yards, with three touchdowns and one interception. It was his best game of the season despite the loss. The Rams average 220.5 passing yards per game (28th). Q
WR Kenny Britt (30 rec, 492 yards, 2 TDs) had his best game as a Rams with seven catches for 136 yards and two touchdowns against the Lions. Los Angeles averages 80.8 rushing yards per game (28th).
Maybe after this air attack explosion last week can kick-start RB Todd Gurley (119 att, 346 yards, 3 TDs) who is averaging a poor 2.9 yards per carry this season. Opposing defenses have been unafraid of focusing on the rush attack beacuse let’s face it Keenum should be playing in the CFL.
Los Angeles has the 19th-ranked total defense in the NFL. The Rams allow 246.0 passing yards per game (16th) and 115.7 rushing yards per game (23rd). They have ten sacks this season (24th). Alec Ogletree has 50 tackles, and Aaron Donald has 3.0 sacks.
