Giants vs Broncos SNF 10-18-17 Betting Prediction

When: 8:30 PM ET, Sunday, October 15, 2017
Where: Sports Authority Field, Denver, Colorado
Betting Line: Broncos -11.5
Total: 38

The New York Giants are one of three winless teams in the league and they travel to one of the NFL’s most difficult venues when they visit the Denver Broncos on Sunday night. New York has lost its last three games by a combined 10 points. However, not only did they lose the game last week they also lost wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall with season-ending injuries. It gets worse for the Giants. They have lost a third wide receiver, Dwayne Harris, to a season-ending injury and Sterling Shepard was unable to practice Wednesday. How about the running game? They rank 30th in the league¬† with 77.8 yards per game.

The Broncos are off to a 3-1 start and must keep pace with an undefeated Kansas City team in the AFC West. There is nothing wrong with the Broncos’ defense, which is yielding a league low 260.8 yards per game and is the top ranked team against the run (50.8 per game). The offense is not a top one but Trevor Siemian has thrown for seven touchdowns versus four interceptions while averaging 222 yards per game. One big advantage he will have in this game is that his healthy receivers are Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. Running back C.J. Anderson has at least 20 rushing attempts in three of four games and averages 4.5 yards per rush. He should get a good workout in the first half but may get a rest in the second half as the second string gets some action.

Giants vs Broncos
Sunday Night Football Prediction

Giving double digits points in the NFL is risky. I don’t like to do it and I will look for any reason to play the dog when the spread is 10+. However, in this game I just can’t find a way for the Giants to score enough points to keep it close. Add that to Manning turning into an interception machine when his team is down and I have this one getting ugly and boring early.
