Something has to give when the Lions and Giants collide in week 15. We preview this much-anticipated showdown and serve up choice NFL picks.

   Detroit Lions vs N.Y. Giants Point Spread Value

The Lions are soaring behind a five-game winning streak and look to continue the momentum in week 15. They take on a rejuvenated Giants team that upset the Dallas juggernaut in week 14 to the chagrin of NFL bettors. Something is certainly going to give when these two sides meet but which will it be. The Giants have home advantage and, as such, enter betting markets as the significant home chalk. But laying that many points with the Giants at the expense of the Lions for week 15 NFL picks does seem a bit rich.  The Lions are a solid 8-5-0 ATS this season with a 2.1 winning margin and +2.0 differential versus the spread.

The Survivor

This is one of the quintessential tossups for the week’s NFL betting slate. There’s every reason to bet on the Lions for the upset at MetLife given their five-game winning streak. On the flipside, the Giants are a solid 6-1-0 SU at home, which is nothing to sniff at. One can’t exclude the morale boost beating the Dallas Cowboys and sweeping the series must have in the locker room either. All things being considered, we’re hedging our bets here with the Giants to win SU but (as mentioned above) the Lions to cover as the underdogs.

Game Total

Consider the weapons at Eli Manning’s disposal one would expect the Giants to be soaring in total betting markets. Alas, it’s quite the opposite with a 3-10-0 O/U record. In fact, the Giants are the best performers in UNDER betting this campaign. A nod to their much-improved defense. The Lions are not far behind with a 4-9-0 O/U record. If these NFL trends hold true, the UNDER bet does seem to be the smart bet.
