The New York Giants lost to the Miami Dolphins last week, falling in an ugly 20-9 defense-oriented performance. They fell down to 4-8 with their playoff chances quickly slipping away. Next up is a matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers, a team that blew out the Cincinnati Bengals last week by a score of 41-22. The Chargers haven’t won or lost back-to-back games since the end of October, but are hoping to pull out another win in Week 14.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

New York is 5-1 ATS in their last six games when suffering from an ATS loss in the previous matchup. They are also 21-8 ATS in their past 29 games out on the road, this is a team that always keeps it close when traveling. However, the Giants have lost four straight games against the spread during the month of December and are completely decimated by injuries on both sides of the ball right now.

On the other hand, the Chargers are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 matches played during Week 14 but are just 2-5 ATS in their past seven overall. Luckily, Los Angeles seems to have good luck against the Giants, winning the last four matchups against New York against the spread. The under has been consistent for them on top of all that ,cashing out in five of their past seven when going up against a team with a losing overall record.

New York Giants

The Giants are already suffering from numerous injuries on both sides of the ball but the loss of Daniel Jones is really cramping an already-challenged offense. Mike Glennon stepped in last week but got hurt towards the end of the game. It is expected that Jake Fromm will be named the starting quarterback for New York this weekend. On the bright side, things can’t really get much worse for this offense, can they? The unit has averaged just 10.7 points per game over the past three weeks. Maybe a young, inexperienced quarterback could somehow give them a spark?

He might not get a lot of help, though. Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard and Kenny Golladay are also suffering from injuries and are all questionable for this upcoming game. It doesn’t help that their defense is ranked 18th in the league in terms of points allowed per game either. This won’t be easy for New York.

Los Angeles Chargers

It has been really difficult to trust the Chargers each week as their play seems to vary from quarter-to-quarter. However, they are a far better team – even if Jones was still at quarterback for the Giants.

Justin Herbert continues to play like a star, throwing for 3,547 yards, 27 touchdowns and 11 interceptions on the season. He has gotten tremendous help from Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Jared Cook to help this offense be one of the best in the league.

The one weak spot is the Chargers run defense, which is the worst in the NFL. That’s going to be the Giants only visible path to victory, so if they can tighten up like they did last week, the Chargers should cruise to an easy win here.
