New York Giants vs. Green Bay Packers

In their last action, Green Bay was a 31-24 winner on the road against the Lions. They covered the -3.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (55) was profitable news for OVER bettors.

New York won its last outing, a 19-10 result against the Redskins on January 01. The Giants covered in that game as a +9-point underdog, while the 29 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

New York: (11-5 SU,8-6-2 ATS)

Eli Manning  threw for 4027 passing yards with a 26 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Manning tossed six interceptions over his last five games which is a bit of a concern for the Giants. Beckham had another great season, racking up 1367 receiving yards with ten touchdowns. New York did not put up a lot of points, averaging only 19.4 points per game and ranking them 26th in the NFL.

The biggest reason the Giants are back in the playoffs is the turnaround season seen from their defense. Last season, the Giants owned the 30th ranked defense, allowing an average of just under 28 points per game, however this season the Giants only gave up an average of 17.8 points per game and ranked 2nd in the NFL.

Green Bay: (10-6 SU,8-7-1 ATS)

The Green Bay Packers are in the playoffs for the eighth consecutive season. Aaron Rodgers finished the year throwing for 4428 yards with 40 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. The Packers are filled with injuries at running back including James Starks who likely won’t play in this one. Ty Montgomery and fullback Aaron Ripkowski have been getting the carries.

The Packers defense was decimated with injuries especially in their secondary this season, and as a result finished with the 31st ranked pass defense. The Packers will give up points but their offense atones for their defense. The Packers allowed an average of 24.2 points per game which ranked 21st.

Sportsbetting

Giants vs Packers
Betting Prediction: Over 44.5

The Packers have won six straight and have scored 30 points or more in each of their last four games. I think that’ll continue here at home, as their offensive line is strong enough to keep the Giants’ pass rush at bay. The Giants haven’t done much on offense over the last month, but Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard should have their way with a severely undermanned Packers secondary.

Score Prediction
Packers 34 – Giants 31
