The New York Giants entered their bye week with a record of 3-7 on the year. They’re coming out of their bye in a relative tie for first place as all of the teams in the NFC East have three wins. They’ll have a good shot at win No. 4 when they visit the Cincinnati Bengals this week.

The Bengals lost their last game to the Washington Football Team and fell to 2-7-1 on the year. They also lost their star rookie quarterback Joe Burrow, who is now out the rest of the season. Will the Bengals be able to pick up the pieces in Burrow’s absence?

NFL Week 12 Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The under is 6-3 in the Giants’ last nine games overall. They are also 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall but only 12-30 straight up in their last 42 contests.

On the other hand, the over is 13-6 in the Bengals’ last 19 games when playing at home and 4-1 in their last five games played on turf. However, Cincinnati is only 10-31 straight up in their last 41 games overall and a horrific 6-28 in its last 34 games when coming in as the underdog.

New York Giants

The Giants have ranged from awful to inconsistent, and they still have a shot at a home playoff game in a few months. Despite their record, they happen to be in arguably the worst division in the NFL. Their defence has been far better than it seems, sitting at 16th in the rankings.

Their offence is another story. Quarterback Daniel Jones is 21st in passing yards, 18th in QBR and has just eight touchdowns and nine interceptions. He’s also lost two fumbles (five fumbles overall). When he doesn’t make mistakes, though, the Giants can compete. They have a great shot this week at a Bengals squad that is reeling without their leader, Burrow.

Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals have a lot to figure out this week now without Burrow. Veteran quarterback Ryan Finley took over after Burrow left the game and went 3-of-10, passing for only 30 yards and an interception. As bad of an offensive line as the Bengals have, Finley is going to have to get used to having multiple defensive linemen in his face before he can get through his progressions. They will also need to get their rushing attack going this game after only totaling 15 carries for 39 yards not including a few scrambles by Finley and Burrow. However, that’s going to be a tall task without Joe Mixon, who landed on the IR with a foot injury.

On the other side of the ball, the defence should be able to contain Jones and the average Giants offense but if they can’t move the ball, this game could get ugly for them.
