Betting market: The market is split on this game, with bettors unsure of whether to buy low on the reigning Super Bowl champs or fade them given their recent struggles.
The line at Pinnacle has been quite unstable, opening at -5.5, dropping to -4.5, going up to -6 and returning back to the opener of -5.5 as of Saturday (check out the live data here).
It will take some sharper action to move the line closer to the key numbers of -3 or -7. — Mark Gallant
Trends to know: The Giants have won back-to-back games for the first time since Week 15 of the 2016 season. When Eli Manning is on a winning streak, he’s 7-14 against the spread vs. division opponents in the next game, according to our Bet Labs data. — John Ewing
John is right: Manning is the least-profitable quarterback in this spot, losing bettors 7.2 unit.
And you want to hear something weird? When Manning faces a non-divisional opponent while on a winning streak, the Giants are 27-16 ATS, profiting bettors 10.6 units.
That makes him the NFL’s third-most profitable quarterback in that spot, behind just Drew Brees and Tom Brady. Go figure. — Evan Abrams
