Riding a three-game win streak, the New York Giants were shaping up as a solid opponent for Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks. That was until Giants quarterback Daniel Jones suffered a hamstring injury midway through their Week 12 contest. Jones has not been ruled out for Week 13, but reports indicate he’ll be missing some time.

And after Colt McCoy threw for 31 yards on six completions in relief, New York’s cross-country trip got harder. Seattle’s won two straight, both being their best defensive performances this season. Not to mention they’re undefeated at home.

NFL Week 13 Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Seattle now stands a double-digit favourite, undoubtedly due to New York’s quarterback situation. The Seahawks are on a pretty solid run too. Along with their 8-3 record, Seattle’s 7-1 ATS in their last eight against the NFC East and have defeated the Giants in all but one of their last six meetings on the West Coast. The Seahawks just took care of the NFC East’s Philadelphia Eagles in Week 12, and are 2-0 against the division this season.

But although their 4-7 record isn’t daunting, New York is a covering machine, going 7-4 ATS this season and 8-1 in their last nine road games.

New York Giants

With Jones doubtful, New York is down not only their leading passer but their leading rusher too. Jones’ 403 rushing yards won’t be as hard to replace as his 2,335 passing yards since Wayne Gallman has become their number-one back, and has fared quite well. Over his last five games, Gallman’s rushed for 293 yards and added six touchdowns.

But the Giants still rank 29th in total offence, and that’s before McCoy was under centre.

That’s where defence and special teams come in handy. The Giants are in the top 10 in yards per game against, and are tied for fourth in the NFL with 18 takeaways. On special teams, New York is fourth in field goal percentage and seventh in punt return average — hey, it helps.

Seattle Seahawks

Two straight wins and full control of the NFC West means Wilson put the Seahawks on his back, right? Well, not exactly. After throwing seven interceptions in Seattle’s last three losses, Wilson’s taken care of the football with zero turnovers but has passed for a total of just 427 yards in weeks 11 and 12, and scored 51 points.

It’s the defence coming through, surrendering only 39 points and 564 yards in back-to-back wins. That’s bad news for the NFC, as any vulnerability Seattle had is diminishing. Seattle’s still third with 31 points per game, and are almost out of the basement in yards against per game.

If Seattle’s taking care of the ball and not giving up copious amounts of points — look out.
