Detroit Lions vs New York Giants
Monday Night Football Prediction 9-18-17

When: 8:30 PM ET, Monday, September 18, 2017
Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey
Betting Line: Giants -3 O/U: 43.5
TV: 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN.

I do not think Odell Beckham Jr. will play and I am basing my bets on this. The Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for 292 yards and four touchdown passes in a 35-23 victory over Arizona. Wide receiver Golden Tate lead the Lions in catches (10) and receiving yards (107). Rookie Kenny Golladay had a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown grabs. In general it was a good performance for the Lions. They dominated and Stafford was impressive in his debut as the highest paid player in the NFL. On the other side, the Giants were a wreck to watch. Against Dallas the Giants offense had just two first downs in the first half en route to a 19-3 loss. To provide an idea of just how bad the Giants offense was. The rushing game was lead by Paul Perkins with 16 of the team’s 35 yards rushing yards. The offense was just inept at every level. I don’t trust the offensive line. The receivers without Beckham are far below average and the team doesn’t have a top running back.

Lions vs Giants Betting Prediction

I don’t know why the Giants are favored. Yes, they are at home but this offense is truly one of the worst in the NFL. Manning will get a break this week in that he will be throwing against one of the worst defensive backfields in the NFL. Yes, bad vs bad. I like the Giants to get some big plays vs the Lions defense but not enough to keep up with what the Lions offense will do. Taking Detroit to win this one outright.
