Betting on the New York Giants (+3)
Regular Season Record: 9-2
The Giants fired offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and suddenly they played better in Week 12, scoring a 13-7 home win against the Philadelphia Eagles. It was not a ground-shaking improvement from the Giants’ offense, but big-time offseason acquisition wide receiver Kenny Golladay showed up and proved that he still exists by catching three passes for 50 yards while running back Saquon Barkley had 40 rushing yards on 13 carries. In any case, that is a good restart for the Giants’ offense that is only averaging 18.4 points per game and 317.5 total yards per contest. Defensively, holding Jalen Hurts and the Eagles to below 10 points was impressive and gives the Giants extra confidence that it can handle Miami.
The Giants, who are sixth in the NFL with 1.7 takeaways per contest, are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games after scoring fewer than 15 points in the prior game.
Betting on the Miami Dolphins (-3)
Regular Season Record: 4-3
It’s fun times for Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins, who have just bagged their fourth win in a row by defeating the Carolina Panthers at home in Week 12, 33-10. During that stretch, Miami beat two cellar-dwellers in the Houston Texans and the New York Jets, but the Dolphins balanced them all out with a resounding victory against the Baltimore Ravens at home in Week 10. That win against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens should serve as a reminder that this Miami resurgence is legit and nothing to scoff at. The Dolphins’ defense has been a menace of late. They have allowed no more than 10 points in three of their last four games. On offense, rookie wide receiver Jaylen Waddle is one to watch out for on the side of the Fins after the former Alabama Crimson Tide star torched the Panthers for 137 receiving yards on nine catches and 10 targets.
The Dolphins are 9-1 against the spread in their last 10 home games versus a team with a losing road record.
The Dolphins win, 23-21.
