Kickoff from St. Louis is set for 1:00 PM. The G-Men have covered the spread the last four times these two teams have gotten it on, including a 44-24 victory in their most recent meeting back in 2005. The Giants began the defense of their Super Bowl title in style on the opening night of the season last Thursday against NFC East rival Washington.
With the NFL betting line favoring the hosts by 4.5-points, the Giants didn’t disappoint their football betting fans, knocking off the Redskins by a 16-7 final tally. New York used a stifling defensive effort to hold the Skins scoreless for the majority of the first half. Including postseason play, the Giants have now covered the spread in each of their L/7 games.
The same can’t be said for the Rams, who opened up their 2008 campaign by getting shredded 38-3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Their trip to the City of Brotherly Love was anything but brotherly, as the Eagles racked up 522 yards of offense. The Rams were 9.5-point underdogs per the closing football betting line, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that they were beaten.
However, losing by 35 in their season opener won’t warm them up to NFL betting followers anytime soon. RB Steven Jackson needs to have a better outing than his 14 carry 40 yard outing against the defending champs, or it’ll be a long home opener for the Rams.
Oddsmakers have installed the G-Men as nine-point road favorites in this NFC showdown with the ‘total’ sitting at 41.5. Sports-Gambling.com is your official home for all of the NFL betting you can sink your teeth into for this and every game of the football betting season.
