The New York Giants are 4-3 after beating Dallas in a big NFC East contest, and they're the best team in the division because, well, someone has to be.

Opening Odds & Line Movement

Open: Odds at Pinnacle
The NFL odds for this game has opened and stayed at -3.5 for the Saints, who are starting to get on a roll and have won their last two games at home. The Giants have won four of their last five, but they blew two fourth-quarter leads to start the season, managed to lose by 20 to a poor Philadelphia team despite forcing four turnovers, and they made San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick look like a serviceable quarterback. You just have no idea what you're going to get from the Giants from week to week. They're probably a better team than the Saints, but can they prove it on the road?

Injuries
It looks like WR Odell Beckham Jr. is good to go as he practiced fully for the first time in two weeks because of his hamstring, but LB Jon Beason didn't practice because of his ankle. However, the big news is that DE Jason Pierre-Paul is back with the team after signing a contract, even though we don't know how his hand is, and he probably won't play this weekend. However, he could be ready for next week's game.

The Saints don't have any new injuries to speak of, but their secondary could be getting some help. CB Keenan Lewis was back at practice after an abdominal injury, while CB Damian Swann returned after a concussion.

 

Trends
The Giants have covered in four of their seven games this season, while doing the same in four of their last five on the road. The Saints are 4-1 ATS in their last five, but just 2-6 ATS in their last eight at home.

The two have split their last 10 SU, but the Saints have covered in six of those games. In New Orleans, the Saints are 5-4 SU and ATS in nine games against the Giants.
