Online betting handicappers have been evaluating this matchup for decades as its one of the hottest and most historic rivalries in all of football betting. The New York Giants are considered to be a leading online betting contender to again take the NFC east division title while the Washington Redskins are expected to again bring up the rear of this division for the 2009 football betting season.
But when these two online betting rivals get together you can literally throw out the record books and prognostications as anything can happen, especially on opening day.
Washington head coach Jim Zorn enters the 2009 football betting campaign under fire as after a hot start in his rookie season last year, the Redskins faltered badly down the stretch due in large part to a lethargic offense that could never really ignite.
Quarterback Jason Campbell finished with an 84.3 quarterback rating and threw 13 touchdown passes with 6 interceptions. Campbell was steady but unspectacular and many online betting handicappers believe that he is not the long term answer for profits from Washington.
Clinton Portis is coming off a solid 2008 online betting season at running back in which he ran for 1487 yards and 9 touchdowns.
The New York Giants online betting hopes rest on the shoulders of quarterback Eli Manning and on one of the strongest defenses in all of online betting Manning faded down the stretch last year and was ineffective in the Giants online betting loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the playoffs.
The Giants have covered the spread in 20 out of their last 26 online betting matchups and are a consistent 37-16-2 against the online betting board in their last 55 NFC matchups. In this head to head series the favorite has covered 7 out of the last 9 meetings and the two teams have gone under the total 6 straight times at Giants Stadium.
