NFL odds: Giants the road favorites against Dolphins on MNF
The game opened as a pick ‘em, but the Giants have emerged as a 2.5-point road favorite at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. The moneyline has the Giants between -125 and -140, and the Dolphins between +105 and +120.
The Giants enter the game at 5–7 straight up and 6-5-1 against the spread this season. They have lost their last two SU and ATS to the New York Jets and Washington. In the four games prior to that, they were 3-0-1 ATS. The Giants are 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight road games, but 2–6 ATS in their last eight games as a road favorite.
New York will be without outside linebacker Devon Kennard due to foot and hamstring issues. Left tackle Ereck Flowers (ankle), defensive end Robery Ayers (neck) and safety Brandon Meriweather (knee) are all questionable for the game.
The Dolphins enter the game 5–7 SU and 4–8 ATS this season. They beat the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13, but, as they've done in five of their last six games, failed to cover the spread. They are 1–7 ATS in their last eight home games, but are 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight games as a home underdog.
The point total opened at 47.5, but has settled at 47 points. The total has gone UNDER in the last five matchups between these two teams. The total has gone OVER in four of the Giants' last six games, and UNDER in four of the Dolphins’ last six games.
The OddsShark Computer predicts a Dolphins outright win, by a final score of 26–23.5. That would provide for the OVER. The favorite is 0–5 ATS in the last five games between these two teams, so this result would continue that trend.
