N.Y. Giants vs Washington Redskins

 

Point Spread Value

The NY Giants are through to the playoffs, marking the second NFC East side to punch its ticket. Washington hope to be the third NFC East representative with a win over the Giants in week 17. To be fair, this game doesn’t hold a lot of importance to the Giants. That does tip the scale towards the Redskins across NFL betting markets. Having said that it would be misleading to suggest the Giants will simply rollover here. Take the points with the Giants for week 17 NFL picks.

The Survivor

Kirk Cousins and the Redskins are under the cosh. This is a must-win game. With home advantage and an opponent under no pressure whatsoever, they couldn’t have asked for better circumstances under which to make such a bid. It remains to be seen whether they’ll deliver to the NFL odds. It’s a tossup so we’re hedging our week 17 NFL picks for the Giants to cover but the Redskins to squeak the win.

Game Total

The Giants have held opponents to low scores for the better part of the season. However, with Ben McAdoo likely resting some of his starters in this meaningless game it could go either way. The Redskins aren’t score shy, a fact underscored by a 12-3-0 OVER record this season.
