The New York Giants and Washington Football Team are a combined 3-12 through the first eight weeks of the NFL season – and yet, both teams are still very much in the hunt for top spot in the NFC East as they tangle Sunday afternoon at FedExField. With the Philadelphia Eagles holding down first place at 3-4-1, both the Giants (1-7) and Washington (2-5) are in the running, though a win this weekend will go a long way toward helping one team over the other.

NFL Week 9 Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Washington comes in as a 2.5-point favourite in the second of two meetings between the teams; the Giants prevailed 20-19 back on Oct. 18 for their only victory of the season. And you can’t get much closer when it comes to the consensus against the spread (ATS) play, with the Sports Interaction betting split right down the middle. While the Giants have played some dreadful football this season, they’ve actually been a great ATS play of late, going 4-1 over their past five games.

The total for Sunday’s divisional rematch is on the low side at 43, and that has spurred Sports Interaction respondents to take the over at a whopping 78 percent clip. That goes against two prevailing trends. Washington has played Under in four of their last six games and the two teams are 6-2 to the Under in their past eight (including their Oct. 18 tilt). Washington is also 1-4 O/U in its last five games against NFC opponents.

New York Giants

Where is the player prop value here? You might want to start with the Under on Daniel Jones’ passing yards, which will likely already be on the low side. Jones is averaging just over 208 passing yards per game through the first half of the season, and could see that mark fall even lower. Washington’s defence allows the fewest yards through the air (185.9) in the NFL. Jones was held to a season-low 112 passing yards in the first meeting between the teams.

Washington Football Team

Washington might not make the playoffs (despite sitting second in the division at the moment), but it won’t be due to a lack of effort from Terry McLaurin. The second-year wide receiver has been the lone bright spot for the Washington offence, and should be featured heavily Sunday. He saw 12 targets last time out against the Giants, turning them into seven catches for 74 yards. Look at the Over on both his receptions and receiving yards.
