New York saw their losing streak reach seven games last Sunday after winding up on the wrong end of a 19-14 decision on the road in Chicago. The Giants jumped out to a 7-3 lead in the first half but self-destructed over the final two quarters, getting outscored 16-7 en route to a five-point loss. QB Daniel Jones went 21-for-36 for 150 passing yards and two touchdowns through the air while RB Saquon Barkley was held to just 59 rushing yards on 17 carries on the ground.
Golden Tate and Kaden Smith both found the end zone while Darius Slayton led the way for the receiving corps with four catches for 67 yards. As a whole, New York gained over 250 total yards of offense and scored two touchdowns despite coming up just short on the scoreboard. On the other side of the ball, the Giants defense had a fairly decent outing against a below average Chicago offense. New York held the Bears to just two touchdowns while also recording two interceptions as well.
With the Giants long eliminated from the NFC Wild Card race, New York betting markets have really died down. However, the Giants season win total over under prop is still on the board, moving down to just 3.0 games after heading into Week 12 at 4.0 games.
New York Giants Odds Ahead of Their Week 13 Game Against the Packers
Looking ahead to their Week 13 matchup, New York will head home to face the Green Bay Packers at MetLife Stadium. The Packers should be highly motivated on Sunday afternoon after getting embarrassed by the 49ers in San Francisco on Sunday Night Football. As things sit right now, the Giants are 6.5 point underdogs in a game that features a 45.5 point total.
Laying the 6.5 points and rolling with the road favorite certainly looks pretty appealing in this spot, especially considering how well RB Aaron Jones has fared when facing below average run defenses in a positive game-script scenario.
After entering the game against Chicago at +2200 in the race for “NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year”, Daniel Jones moved back to +2300 after a fairly mediocre performance against a tough Bears secondary. The award continues to be a two-man duel between Josh Jacobs (-140) and Kyler Murray (+180) following a below average outing from Jacobs on the ground in a surprising loss for Oakland against the Jets.
After missing multiple games due to a high ankle sprain and subsequently struggling upon his return to the lineup, Saquon Barkley is completely off the board in the battle for the “Most Regular Season Rushing Yards” crown. Christian McCaffrey remained the odds on favorite to take down the award over the weekend after a decent outing against New Orleans.
McCaffrey (+180) is still the front-runner with just over a month remaining in the regular season, although Nick Chubb has climbed all the way up from +550 to +210 since the beginning of November. Dalvin Cook also appears to still have an outside shot at coming out on top, as he currently sits at +420.
