NFL Betting Odds Predict NYG Will Remain Winless in Week 4
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
Right about, the New York Giants and their entire fan base are wishing that the 2017 online NFL betting season had never kicked off. Coming off an 11-5 season, NFL wagering players and Giants’ fans alike were expecting great things from the franchise in Ben McAdoo’s second season at the helm. But New York hasn’t been able to catch a break all season long, entering Week 4 winless and disappointed at 0-3. This Sunday, the Giants will do all they can to edge out their first win of the season. Unfortunately, they’re facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers – a team that was on the verge of making the playoffs last season. And it looks like NFL betting sites are starting to side against Big Blue.

New York Giants
The Giants are coming off a disheartening loss to their NFC East rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles. After a hard fought match, the Giants were in a position to win the game with enough time to mount a comeback. But New York’s offense, which has been less than impressive all season long, decided to go 3 and out. On the following possession, the Eagles mounted a respectable drive that ended in a franchise record 61 yard field goal to give the Birds the 27-24 online NFL betting win over their rivals.
The principal setback the Giants have suffered this season has been from their offense. With the league’s worst run game, there has been entirely too much pressure on Eli Manning. Furthermore, Big Blue just can’t seem to get on the board. New York enters this Sunday’s game ranking penultimate in scoring and 21st in terms of total offense. The Bucs don’t have the greatest defense in the NFL but even a collegiate team could shutout the current Giants.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
After having their Week 1 contest postponed, the Bucs head into this weekend’s matchup sporting a 1-1 record that ranks them 3rd in the NFC South. There’s still plenty of football to be played and Tampa Bay will have ample opportunities to catch up to the Atlanta Falcons. This Sunday’s contest versus the Giants is one of those.
The NFL wagering odds are siding with the Bucs on this one. Likely because Tampa Bay’s passing attack currently ranks in the top 10 of the league. However, Big Blue just happens to be No. 6 against the pass so we’ll find out what Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers offense is truly capable of this weekend. Winston is a 3-year veteran that has been showing plenty of promise throughout the first couple of seasons of his career, posting an average passer rating of 85.1 thus far into his career.
