Reasons The Giants Can Cover The Spread

Assuming that Jones is not only a go, but healthy enough to run, then the Giants will be able to run their offence this week. With Jones rushing as much as he has, the Giants have one of the best rushing games in the league. 2nd in yards/rush and 7th by rushing DVOA, the Giants should be able to gash the Packers porous rush defence.

Throw in the fact that Rodgers and the Pack have yet to find an offensive rhythm, and the Giants have plenty of opportunity to cover this big of a spread.

Why The Packers can cover the spread

Even assuming he plays, Jones’ mobility could be limited – and if Green Bay can sell out to stop the run, they might be able to get stops. Being less scared of play action bootlegs should give the Packers defence more ability to get off the field.

If the Giants have to play from behind, they won’t be able to do what New England did last week and still consistently run the ball. If the Packers can score on the Giants’ 23rd rank Defence by DVOA early, then the Giants will have to pass more – increasing the chances of mistakes.

Reasons to bet the over

Rodgers has been more turnover prone this season so far, with interceptions in back to back games. If he continues to do that, the Giants much be able to get a free, or cheap, touchdown and force Green Bay into a more pass happy script.

On the other side, Daniel Jones has been very turnover prone in his career, and if he gives up a defensive touchdown or gives Rodgers a short field, Green Bay will take advantage. That, and the low total, could help get the game Over.

Reasons to bet the under

Both these teams prefer to run the ball when possible – the Giants because Jones isn’t a good passer, the Packers because their Wide Receivers aren’t good enough yet. A heavy running game is going to end up with a lot of burnt clock and not many plays.

The Packers won’t want to keep pushing if they get a lead – they’ll be content to run Jones and Dillon and keeping the game away from risky mistakes.

Giants vs. Packers Props: Matchups To Watch For

Aaron Rodgers interceptions: O/U / ()

Rodgers has thrown 3 picks in the last two games, a potential sign that he’s not quite the same Quarterback he’s always been. If he has to throw more this week, then he could be liable for another bad ball.

Aaron Jones Rushing Yards: / ()

Jones has broken 100 yards in two of his last three games and the Packers project to be in a run heavy script. Assuming that comes through, Jones should be able to take advantage of the 27th ranked rush D by yards/rush.

Final Thoughts

If Jones is ruled out, this line will presumably drift close to, if not flirting with, a 10, but if he plays it likely won’t move much.

The Giants path to covering this spread is the same as the Patriots’ last week – lots of running and giving themselves third and manageable. As long as Jones can keep running, they should be able to run their usual offence.

The Packers on the other hand have only looked particularly good in one game, at home against the Bears. Their offence can’t get on the same page and nothing in their recent performances suggest they should be laying this number.

That said, it’s still Aaron Rodgers, and if anyone is going to be able to get on the same page with his receivers it’s him. If he can get some early momentum offensively, Green Bay should roll.
