The New York Giants were a great story a couple of weeks ago after beating the Seattle Seahawks and leading the division. They’ve now lost two in a row and are in danger of extending that streak as they are a big dog in Baltimore this week. They have a decent run defense, though, so maybe they can slow down the Ravens from running rampant?

NFL Week 16 Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The over is 3-1-1 in the last five matchups between these two teams. You can expect the over to cash in yet again this weekend as the Ravens are finally starting to fire on all cylinders on the offensive side of the ball. If they are able to light up the solid Giants defense, then it could even allow the Giants to put up some more points in garbage time if the game is already decided.

Also, the favored team happens to be 4-1 ATS in the last five games between these two teams and that number should go up to 5-1 after this game. The Ravens are favored by nearly 10 points heading into this matchup and for good reason. New York has struggled to defend opponents while their offense has begun to sputter out of control in recent weeks. Meanwhile, Baltimore have lit the scoreboard on fire the past few weeks with fantastic offensive play. It should be a solid victory for the Ravens as they make a late playoff push.

New York Giants

Without Saquon Barkley, this offense looks pitiful at best. Without Daniel Jones, they are barely able to move the ball.

The Giants offensive line is among the worst in the league despite drafting Andrew Thomas with the third overall pick. It also doesn’t help that Jones is banged up and the team may have to turn to veteran Colt McCoy. On the other side of the ball, their defense is actually a solid unit even though it hasn’t resulted in many wins. They have a lot of young talent across the board on that side of the ball and it helped them defeat the Seattle Seahawks a few weeks ago. If this defense can shut down the Ravens rushing attack, then they may have a shot at winning this ball game. The Giants are seventh in rush defense and sixth in yards-per-carry allowed.

Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore has been inconsistent all season long but in the past two weeks, they have looked like Super Bowl contenders. Lamar Jackson seems to be returning to his old self, running the ball and passing the ball at a very high level. It also helps that their receiving corps is getting better every week and the fact that they have three starting caliber running backs that they can rotate.

On the defensive side of the ball, they have talent everywhere but they haven’t always delivered this season. They appear to be getting in gear for a playoff run, though. With guys like Calais Campbell, Marcus Peters, Derek Wolfe and Matthew Judon all leading the charge, they have potential to be one of the league’s top units. They should have no problems with a Giants offense that barely finds the end zone these days.
