Giants Bracing for an Online NFL Betting Blowout
Posted by: Mike Davis
Sunday Night Football has been exceptional this online NFL betting season. However, this upcoming weekend’s Sunday Night Football matchup might have a hard time living up to the caliber of contests we’ve seen so far in that slot. Specifically, there aren’t many NFL sportsbooks who think that the Giants can compete with the Broncos, especially since they’ll be competing at Mile High. Nevertheless, let’s see how big of a blowout the odds makers are predicting for this Sunday night.
New York Giants vs. Denver Broncos – Sunday, October 15th
When: 5:30 pm ET
Where: Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Denver, Colorado
Stream: Fox Sports Go, NFL Game Pass
Online NFL Betting Odds:
New York Giants +11 ½ (-115) 39 ½ (-110) +479
Denver Broncos -11 ½ (-105) 39 ½ (-110) -652
New York Giants
The Giants are, alongside the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers, the only team to have not won a game this season. Having something in common with what many online NFL betting fans consider to be the worst team in the league is never a good thing, and the Giants will have to work hard to separate themselves from Cleveland.
This Sunday’s game will mark the second time this season that the Giants have faced an AFC opponent. The first came this past Sunday when New York hosted the Los Angeles Chargers in their 27-22 loss. Both teams were winless heading into that game but the Chargers managed to break that drought over Big Blue. Although that marked the Giants’ fifth loss of the season, it was without the biggest setback they suffered of the year. Due to the fact that the Giants lost Odell Beckham Jr., as well as Brandon Marshall – the best two receivers the Giants possess. With both players now on injured reserve, New York has zero hope of turning this struggling offense around.
The Broncos are coming off a Week 5 Bye so players betting NFL online should expect Denver to be well-rested and hungry to score a win come Sunday. The last time the Broncos stepped onto the gridiron they faced off against their AFC West rivals, the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders had been performing rather well for most part of the season. However, an injury to Derek Carr sidelined the franchise for a couple of weeks and ultimately opened the door for the Broncos to defeat their divisional rivals 16-10.
Denver is being pegged as massive favorites ahead of this Sunday’s game. There’s no question that the Broncos will come out on top, the only real question is whether or not the Broncos will cover the spread against the Giants. The Broncos are 2-1-1 against the spread this season while the Giants are 2-3 ATS. Specifically, New York has posted a 2-1 record against the spread on the road. That might make it seem like Big Blue could cover the spread but it’s important to remember that they had their top 2 receivers in the lineup. Without them, the Giants will have an even more difficult time scoring on one of the best defenses in the NFL.
