Giants’ Season to Date
After stumbling out of the gate, then benching QB Eli Manning in favor of rookie Daniel Jones, the Giants' (2-7) playoff hopes are over. New York has dropped five straight—including a 37-18 MNF Week 9 loss to Dallas. That game was closer than the final score indicates, as the Cowboys pulled away late.

Jets’ Season to Date
Equally as bad as in-state rival NYG, the Jets (1-7) have been terrible since a 24-22 Week 6 upset over Dallas. Following a 26-18 loss to Miami, who were 0-7 and getting outscored by a 34-11 per-game margin, the Jets have hit rock bottom. Along with a ton of injuries, QB Sam Darnold has been a disaster.
Jets’ Betting Record: ATS 3-6-0 OVER/UNDER 5-4-0

TE Ryan Griffin: 162 receiving yards with 3 TD
Giants vs. Jets Recent History – First Meeting Since 2015
There isn’t anything to gain from looking at the recent history between the Jets and Giants. Similar opponents this season illustrate that these squads are fairly even. Both teams lost to Patriots, the Jets beat the Cowboys while the Giants have lost two versus Dallas and both clubs were beaten by Buffalo.
Jets vs. Giants Final Thoughts and Pick
First-half play has been a problem for the Giants, as they have been outscored by a 159-101 count and have led just once at halftime, which came versus Washington. The Jets haven’t started their contests much better, as they have led twice after 30 minutes—Week 1 against Buffalo and Week 6 versus Dallas.
Injuries are a big concern for the Jets, who struggled to fill their active roster last week. While the backups may be hungry, they are bench players for a reason. A new injury this week: RB Le’Veon Bell (knee) is questionable. This feels like a game to avoid but, if you bet on it, consider Barkley and the Giants.
Pick: Giants -2.5
Season Record: 0-0
