Betting Preview for the New York Giants vs Los Angeles Chargers Regular Season Week 14 Game on December 12, 2021
Where: SoFi Stadium, Inglewood
When: Sunday, December 12, 2021, 4:05 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the New York Giants (+10.5)
Regular Season Record: 4-8
Just a week after a reinvigorating win over the Philadelphia Eagles, the Giants are back to their losing ways, as they absorbed a 20-9 defeat on the road at the hands of the Miami Dolphins over the weekend. Mike Glennon started in place of the injured Daniel Jones and was not effective at all against the Dolphins. Glennon went 23/44 for 187 passing yards without a touchdown and with an interception. He might not even be making an appearance in Week 14 against the Chargers, as he’s been diagnosed with a concussion. That means Jake Fromm could be New York’s starter this coming Sunday. In any case, the Giants should try to run and feed the ball a lot to Saquon Barkley against the Chargers, who are second-worst in the NFL with 141.2 rushing yards allowed per game.
The Giants are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games after scoring fewer than 15 points in their previous outing.
Betting on the Los Angeles Chargers (-10.5)
Regular Season Record: 2-10
The Chargers have been wildly inconsistent for most of the season. They have not pulled off consecutive wins since Week 5, but a chance to break the alternating cycle of victories and losses will come their way again this Sunday against the lowly Giants. Although Los Angeles’ defense leaves much to be desired, it should still be able to handle the Giants’ attack that is one of the most anemic in the league. There’s just not a lot of upside for the Giants’ offense that is 28th in the NFL with 17.6 points per game and has not scored in double digits in any of their last two games. Meanwhile, the Chargers’ offense is full of potential. Justin Herbert is very much capable of exploding on any given contest, though he needs better protection after getting sacked four times for a loss of 33 yards in their 41-22 road win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 13.
The Chargers are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games in December.
The Chargers win, 28-20.
