Two of  the most prolific WRs in the NFL will meet on MNF when AJ Green and the Cincinnati Bengals travel to MetLife Stadium to face Odell Beckham and the New York Giants. Let’s handicap the Bengals vs. Giants and offer up an NFL pick.

 

Cincinnati Bengals vs. New York Giants

The Cincinnati Bengals (3-4-1 SU, 3-5 ATS 167 PS-189 PA) pay a visit to East Rutherford, New Jersey and MetLife Stadium to face the New York Giants (5-3 SU, 4-4 ATS, 161 PS-164 PA) on Monday Night Football. Sportsbooks have this line offered from Pick to the Bengals as 1½-point favorites with the Total at 47 to 47½ early Sunday. The money line NFL odds see Cincinnati -118 with New York +102 with the 1st Half odds to CIN -½ and the 1st Half Total 23½. The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook opened the Giants 2-point chalks in the NFL week 10 advanced line.

Monday Night Football Series, Side, and Totals Trends

With the point spread so close to a PK, the MNF Trends for Favorites/Underdogs aren’t worth applying here but the Bengals (20.9 ppg, T-#21) are 1-7 ATS Away vs. Non-Division Opponents on Mondays (Marc Lawrence Playbook) while the G-Men are 1-4 ATS the L5 Mondays and New York (20.2 ppg, #25) is 7-10 O/U at Home with Cincinnati 11-3 O/U on the road. The Bengals are 3-1 ATS L4 in this series in which the underdog has gone 4-0 ATS L4. And the Bengals (Unders 8-1 L9 November) are 0-5-1 their L6 vs. teams with Winning Records and 1-4 ATS the L5 Week 10 games. However, Cincinnati is 9-3 ATS its L12 Road games and 4-1 ATS L5 in November. The Over is 8-1 L9 Giants Week 10 games, 6-1 the L7 in November and 11-5 L16 on FieldTurf and the Bengals have played 3 straight Overs heading in.

Manning (45-53-2 ATS at Home) and NY (17-35-3 ATS L55 November) have been playing well, W3 SU and going 3-0-1 ATS L4, but this matchup is tricky and perhaps teasing the Bengals up is wise. Both need the win with New York (Over 8-1 L9 Week 10) chasing the Cowboys (7-1) in the NFC East and AJ Green and Cincinnati (1-3 ATS Road) chasing the Ravens (5-4) and Steelers (4-4) in the AFC South—meaning a Loss here for whomever hurts what may end up only being Wild Card chances and likely a quicker Pace.
