NFL football gambling fans saw the Giants suffer an epic loss to the Philadelphia Eagles 2 weeks ago which looks like the betting on NFL football breaking point of their season.
The Washington Redskins will host the New York Giants on Sunday with a start time on FOX television of 4:20 PM ET. Sports-Gambling opened with the Giants as a 3.5 point favorite and with a total of 44.5. The Giants must win and get some outside help for a shot at the NFC playoffs. The Giants scored a 31-7 home payout over the Redskins in the first meeting between the teams this season on December 5.
Washington has a record of 6-9 straight up and 7-6-2 with the football odds as they have gone under the total 9 times. It has been a tumultuous first season for coach Mike Shanahan as he clashed with original starting quarterback Donovan McNabb, who has since been benched for castoff Rex Grossman.
Grossman led the Redskins to a 20-17 upset payout at Jacksonville last week and it’s not likely that McNabb will return to DC, regardless of the spin put out by the Redskins PR team. Washington’s offense ranks 24th for scoring and the defense ranks dead last overall.
It’s looking more and more like the New York Giants will not recover from their December 19 home loss to Philadelphia in which they blew a 21 point lead with less than 8 minutes to go to lose 38-31 on a TD punt return at the gun. Last week the Giants were blown out at Green Bay 45-17 as 3 point dogs with the odds NFL.
Eli Manning had a horrible performance at Green Bay with 4 interceptions and now has an ugly 30/24 TD/INT ratio. After a solid start the Giants rank 16th for points allowed on defense while ranking 10th on offense for scoring. The Giants have a NFL football gambling record of 9-6 straight up and 7-8 against the spread with 9 of their games going over the total.
Head coach Tom Coughlin may pay for this late season collapse with his job as the Giants are on the brink of blowing what looked like a certain playoff spot.
