Takeaways From Week 15
The Giants step into this contest off a high note after earning their third win of the season last Sunday at MetLife Stadium against the visiting Miami Dolphins. The G-Men cruised to a 36-20 victory, covering easily as a 3.5-point favorite.
The Redskins step into this NFC East collision off a loss to another divisional rival in the Philadelphia Eagles. Closing as a seven-point home underdog, the Redskins were unable to come in under the number when they suffered a 37-27 loss at the hands of the Eagles. The ATS loss marked the end of a three-game win streak against the spread for the Redskins.

How the Public is Betting the New York-Washington Game
At the moment, 57% of the consensus is leaning on the Redskins. Contrarily, early action has come in New York, which took the line down by a point to the Skins now spotting a point fewer to their opening price of -3.5.
The Giants have won the last two meetings between both sides. The Redskins and Giants last met in September in East Rutherford, New Jersey. New York closing as a three-point favorite would cover easily in a 24-3 thumping of the Redskins.
The Giants have been the profitable choice in this series as of late, as they have procured a 9-4 ATS record in the last 13 meetings between these two combatants. This trend will steer takers toward the points with Big Blue. In addition, the Underdog has gone 4-1 ATS in the previous five outings. For Over/Under players, the Under has gone 5-1 ATS in the last six matches.
Heading into the match-up between New York and Washington, the most notable injury involves Giants Quarterback Daniel Jones, who took over for Eli Manning as a starter earlier this season. “Dan The Man” has been sidelined since December 1st when Manning reprised his starting role. In his absence, the G-Men are 1-1 SU and 2-0 ATS. Jones’ status remains up in the air as we head into this divisional rivalry clash.
Why We Like Washington To Cover
The number the Redskins opened at resonated with me as it is a favorite-friendly number designed to attract action on the Giants. After New York pulling off the win it did against Miami has created a bit of a subculture fanfare in the second coming of Eli Manning-mania. Playing on the appeal that the Giants have to offer combined with Washington winning just one game this year at home, the grease is certainly on the hook. The hook was the initial number offered in this market (-3.5) that quickly dove downward. The price next to Washington’s name is there to attract bettors to back the Giants with the guise of a win should they lose by a field goal. The fact that the Giants are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 road underdog will only enchant backers that much more. However, I am not keen to bite. After all, the Giants won the first match-up between both sides earlier this season by convincing margins, and yet the odds-makers still seem reluctant to buy into the verity of the result.
Keith’s Pick to Cover the Spread: Washington -2.5
Many pundits will probably work in an analysis of who is likely to lose this game by virtue of a desire to “tank”. Based on the position the market is taking, it seems that Washington is the least likely suspect. I would conquer this proposition. The one-point line swing offers tremendous value here as we now win this wager should the Skins do so by a field goal. However, it won’t come to that. I think Washington will come out guns blazing in a last-ditch to win one more game before its faithful to close out an otherwise turbulent campaign. From the eyes of the Redskins, this is certainly a winnable match-up, and I anticipate Washington will take full advantage. This game will be a four-quarter affair, but Washington will get the better of the Giants and get the W by way of a late touchdown. Lay the points.
