Betting on the New York Giants (+7.5)
Regular Season Record: 0-3
The Giants picked up another loss in Week 3, as they fell prey to the Atlanta Falcons at home, 17-14. That was the second time New York’s offense scored fewer than 18 points this season, but don’t just blame quarterback Daniel Jones for it. Jones has passed for 782 yards through three games and has two passing touchdowns against zero interceptions. But injuries to players around him on offense and weak pass protection are holding New York down. Jones has been sacked eight times this season already. The Giants’ current Week 4 injury report has Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton on it. Left guard Ben Bredeson also suffered a hand injury. Nevertheless, the Giants could be seeing the start of Saquon Barkley’s return to form. After underwhelming showings in the first two weeks, Barkley finally scored a touchdown to go with 51 rushing yards on 16 carries against Atlanta.
The Giants enter Week 4 with a 21-6 record against the spread in their last 27 games as the road underdog.
Betting on the New Orleans Saints (-7.5)
Regular Season Record: 2-1
In Jameis Winston, the Saints trust. Winston led New Orleans to a 28-13 road win over the New England Patriots in Week 3 to bounce back from a Week 2 road loss to the Carolina Panthers. Against the Pats, Winston went 13/21 for 128 passing yards and two touchdowns without an interception. He didn’t have to carry a lot of weight, as New Orleans’ defense also did a fine job crippling the Pats. New Orleans picked Mac Jones three times, sacked him twice, and limited the Patriots’ offense to only 7/19 on third downs. The Saints have the third-best scoring defense in the NFL after three weeks, with just 14.0 points allowed per game. They are also giving up just 304.0 total yards per contest. Jones and the Giants are not committing a lot of turnovers this season, but that could change against the Saints, who are averaging 2.3 takeaways per game — second-most overall in the league.
The Saints are 13-3 against the spread in their last 16 Week 4 games.
The Saints win, 28-20.
