BetAnySports’ NFL Pick of the Week- Week 4
New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins – Thursday, Sept.25
Current BAS’ Line: Redskins -3 1/2 and the total is sitting at 45 1/2.
The New York Giants and the Washington Redskins will kick-off Week 4 of the NFL regular season on Thursday Night Football in a battle between two NFC East rivals that cannot afford to fall too far off the pace in the division title race. Both teams come in with 1-2 straight-up record to start the year and BetAnySports has listed Washington as a 3 1/2 point home favorite on its NFL betting odds for this game. The total has been set at 45 1/2.
Some bettors had given the Giants up for dead after a second-straight slow start out of the gate, but they ended this season’s slide at two games with an impressive 30-17 victory over Houston as 1.5-point home favorites this past Sunday. This followed lopsided losses to Detroit and Arizona by a combined score of 60-28 in their first two games. The total went OVER BetAnySports’ 41.5-point closing line against the Texans.
One of the biggest differences this past week verse New York’s first two games was the play of veteran quarterback Eli Manning. After starting the season with four interceptions in two games, he remained turnover-free while connecting on 21-of-28 attempts for 234 yards and two touchdown throws. The Giants’ defense did its part by picking-off Houston quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick three times.
Washington has been forced to turn to Kirk Cousins as its starting quarterback for an injured Robert Griffin III, but that might not be such a bad thing. Despite the 37-34 loss to Philadelphia this past Sunday as four-point road underdogs, the Redskins new starter threw for 427 yards and three scores. The offense gained 511 total yards while carving out a nine-minute edge in time of possession.
If Cousins can put up numbers like that against New York’s defense then Washington should roll in this one as the Giants do not have nearly the offensive firepower to keep up on the scoreboard. I actually see this game turning into a hard-fought back-and-forth battle between two heated rivals. However, in the end stick with the home team to get the win both straight-up and against the spread while laying the four points. The Giants are just 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games on BetAnySports’ closing betting odds and the Redskins have a 5-2 edge ATS in the last seven meetings in this series.
