Betting on the New York Giants (+5.5)
Regular Season Record:
In the Giants’ 26-16 home loss in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, star running back Saquon Barkley rushed for six yards on 15 carries. That’s no a typo. Your eyes are not messing with you, either. Barkley simply had a hard time breaking past the Steelers’ concrete defense. Daniel Jones went 26 for 41 for 279 passing yards and two touchdowns but also had two interceptions. Pittsburgh’s defense did not give the Giants much breathing room. Jones was also sacked twice for a loss of 17 yards. It’s not about to be much easier in the next game for the Giants, as Chicago does possess a formidable defense as well, but Barkley could finally give his New York (and his fantasy owners) the production expected of a star like him. The Bears let old man Adrian Peterson rush for 93 yards on 14 carries in Week 1 and 138 total rushing yards to Detroit.
The Giants are 3-0 against the spread in their last three road games.
Betting on the Chicago Bears (-5.5)
Regular Season Record: 1-0
Mitchell Trubisky was drafted ahead of Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson, and that’s a fact many Bears fans are getting tortured by. However, for at least one quarter in Week 1, Trubisky played like his draft slot, as he tossed three late touchdowns and finished with 242 passing yards without an interception in a 27-23 come-from-behind win on the road against the Detroit Lions. Anthony Miller, Jimmy Graham, and Javon Wims each caught a touchdown from Trubisky, who held off Nick Foles’ chances of getting a start for at least another week. With momentum on his side, Trubisky should feel more confident in Week 2 against the Giants, who wasn’t able to contain Ben Roethlisberger in Week 1. Big Ben didn’t play competitive football for almost a year and still managed to throw three touchdowns with no interceptions in Week 1. Trubisky is not Roethlisberger, but his receiving corps can create problems for the Giants.
The under is 8-2 in the Bears’ last 10 games at home.
The Bears win, 23-20.
