Their chances of reaching the post-season remain slim, but that the New York Giants even have a shot entering Week 15 is something of a minor miracle. The Giants look to secure their third win in a row Sunday afternoon as they host a Tennessee Titans team that has also won two straight to keep its postseason aspirations alive. The Giants come in as a slight favourite against a Titans team that has gone just 2-5 on the road this season.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Giving up points at MetLife Stadium hasn’t suited the Giants well in recent years, as they’re just 3-6-1 against the spread (ATS) in their past 10 games as a home favourite. But New York comes in on a 4-0-1 ATS run over its past five games, and have covered five of their previous seven games after scoring 30 or more points last time out. And Tennessee has been a dreadful road cover option, having gone a dismal 12-25 ATS in their past 37 games away from Nissan Stadium.

The total for Sunday’s game sits at 43.5, and the overwhelming majority of Sports Interaction bettors favour the over. The Giants are certainly trending in that direction, having surpassed the total in four of five games while going 4-1 O/U in their previous five following a successful cover. Tennessee is headed in the other direction, having gone below the number in seven of 10 games after a SU win while converting the under in nine of 13 games following a cover.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans’ inconsistent defence could have its hands full with the dynamic Giants duo of running back Saquon Barkley and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., though Beckham has been limited in practice by a quadriceps injury and will likely be questionable for Sunday. Regardless of whether he plays, the Titans have been great at preventing the big passing play, surrendering just 37 receptions of 20 or more yards – ranking them inside the top 10 in that category.

New York Giants

Eli Manning is still struggling, and Beckham almost certainly won’t be at 100 percent. So why are the Giants favoured? It comes down to the prowess of Barkley, who is shredding opposing defences for 5.4 yards per carry while sitting third in the league in rushing yards (1,124). And he has been at his best during New York’s 3-1 run, having reeled off four consecutive 100-yard rushing efforts while racking up four TDs on the ground and two more through the air.
