Seattle Seahawks Vs New York Giants Spread & Final Score Prediction
Seattle Seahawks (3-2) at New York Giants (1-5)
When: Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 4:25 PM ET
Where: MetLife Stadium
NFL Odds: New York Giants +5.5
Why Bet the Seattle Seahawks Odds at -5.5
The Seahawks got past the revitalized Los Angeles Rams 16-10 with a powerful defensive effort in a hard-fought battle last weekend to cover the spread as a 2-point road dog as Russell Wilson passed for 198 with one touchdown and one interception. The Seattle defense harassed Rams quarterback Jared Goff into a miserable 22 for 47 passing day with two interceptions and no touchdowns. Seattle also forced four fumbles and recovered three of them in the win while holding Rams’ running back Todd Gurley to a modest 43 rushing yards.
Seattle is averaging 22.0 points per game (15th) while limiting the opposition to just 17.4 points per contest defensively (6th). Coming into this Week 7 matchup, the Seahawks are looking to continue their improved play on the offensive line.
"We’re making progress, but it’s the process that we’re going through to just get tight and get clean and get sharp," Carroll said. "A couple weeks ago, we ran for 194 yards and then the next week we ran for 60. So we’re not as consistent as we need to be.
Why Bet the New York Giants Odds at +5.5
The New York Giants stunned the Denver Broncos in their 23-10 Week 6 win to cover the NFL betting line as a 13.5-point road underdog no less as Eli Manning completed 11 of 19 passes for 128 yards and one touchdown. New York’s defense picked off Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian twice and recovered one fumble in the upset win while running back Orleans Darkwa put his name on the map for the Giants by rushing for 117 yards on 21 carries. The G-Men are averaging an uninspiring 17.5 points per game (29th) while allowing 22.0 points per game defensively (17th).
Like the Seahawks, New York is looking for improved play on the offensive line.
"It’s been challenging with the offensive line," offensive line coach Mike Solari said of the musical chairs. "They’re working hard and next man up mentality. And, again, just the changing of the different positions is an adjustment we’re making. We’re getting better."
Seahawks Vs Giants Final Score Prediction
The New York Giants may have picked up an impressive win last weekend in Denver, but I don’t see them getting past a Seattle Seahawks team that has an elite defense and a heady, Super Bowl-winning quarterback that won’t make the same mistakes that Denver’s Trevor Siemian did last weekend.
I know the Seahawks are just 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games, but they’re also 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in the month of October while New York has gone 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and just 1-1-3 in their last five home dates against the Seahawks.
Basically, I see Seattle giving the Giants’ offense a really hard way to go as they nail down the road win and narrow ATS cover, much like they did against the Rams in L.A. last weekend.
