That led to Saquon Barkley’s go-ahead TD plunge that improved the Giants’ document to 5-1, and but they had been put in as 3-point underdogs for this Sunday’s sport towards the 2-4 Jacksonville Jaguars, a line that has since dipped to 2 1/2 at BetMGM whereas staying 3 at FanDuel, DraftKings and the opposite six licensed New York sportsbooks.
After which we’ve the 4-2 Jets, who’re making an attempt to shake off huge receiver Elijah Moore’s commerce request as they put together to face the 2-4 Broncos in Denver and maybe get some revenge for a 26-0 defeat in Week 3 final season that stored them winless and their followers hopeless.

One of many good remaining issues about New York is that we get three months of every season, and autumn affords us a possibility to get our heads our of our telephones and our our bodies off the couch as we put together for an epic weekend of sports activities. That not solely contains two Sunday soccer video games, but additionally the Knicks residence opener Friday evening, the Yankees placing ace Gerrit Cole on the mound on what’s forecast to be a heat and sunny Saturday afternoon, and the New York Metropolis FC soccer crew touring to Canada for a Sunday afternoon playoff matchup with CF Montreal throughout our northern border in Quebec, a visit at present pricing at $70 a method by way of Amtrak.
What Ought to We Count on from Giants-Jaguars?
The one factor predictable about what’s going to occur to the squad led by main Coach of the 12 months candidate Brian Daboll (all the way down to +350, second behind Philadelphia’s Nick Sirianni at +125) within the third and fourth quarters. They are going to make no matter in-game changes have to be made, and they are going to be higher than they had been within the first half. They’re constant that means. Not solely did the Giants outscore the Ravens 17-10 within the second half final week, they outscored Inexperienced Bay 17-2 within the second half two weeks in the past in London, the Bears 6-3 in Week 4, and the Titans 21-7 within the second half in Week 1.
They’ve used QB Daniel Jones as a wideout whereas having Barkley take the snap from heart. They’ve had Jones run for well timed first downs on a gimpy ankle. They used their one and solely interception of the season (together with the accompanying 27-yard return by Julian Love) to utterly reverse their fortunes at residence final week towards Baltimore. And principally have achieved every little thing doable within the positives column — aside from throwing an interception with 1:45 remaining within the Week 3 model of Monday Night time Soccer towards Dallas to lose 23-16 to the Cowboys. It’s their lone blemish.
“That stadium has been rocking, and we’ve had such nice help and it carries over to how we really feel, how we play,” Love stated. “A number of folks, like Jessie Armstead, longtime Giants guys, stated they haven’t heard that place that loud in a very long time.”
However this week’s sport is in Northern Florida, residence to many transplanted New Yorkers. But in addition residence to a crew that has misplaced three straight to the Eagles, Texans, and Colts to drop to 3rd place within the AFC South. They’re ranked eleventh defensively by way of yards allowed, and they’re eleventh offensively in yards per sport.
Travis Etienne, a 2021 first-round pick of Clemson, received a shock begin final week and has collected 222 yards (157 dashing) on 25 touches within the Jaguars’ losses to the Texans and Colts, which works out to eight.9 yards per contact. QB Trevor Lawrence has thrown for 1,397 yards, which is 378 greater than Jones has thrown for, and the Jaguars also have a punter in Logan Cooke who’s averaging 50.2 yards per kick, the identical because the Giants’ Jamie Gillian.

What this all provides as much as is that statistically, the Jaguars are equal or higher than the Giants in lots of classes. However relating to getting issues circled within the second half, no person can fairly compete with Daboll at this level of the season.
The Giants have gone below in 4 of six video games, and the Jaguars have gone waaaaay below (by 19 1/2 and 24 1/2) in each of their residence video games. The over/below for this 1 p.m. EDT begin is 43, and more-than two-thirds of the deal with at BetMGM has been on the below.
Barkley leads the NFL in complete mixed yards from dashing and receiving, and his receiving yardage over/below line is 29 1/2 yards, a complete he has surpassed in half of his video games. He had solely 12 receiving yards final week, furthering a sample by which he goes for 30 or extra receiving yards each different sport. So he’s due for an over.
Jones has thrown 27 passes every of the final two weeks, totaling 173 yards towards Baltimore and 217 towards Inexperienced Bay. His passing yardage over/below 196 1/2, which is 24 yards decrease than Lawrence’s.
The thought right here is that this one is performed rapidly and is low-scoring by three quarters. Within the fourth, the Giants development towards the surprising, so do with that data what you select. However parlaying a bunch of participant props is assured to be essentially the most enjoyable, as a result of you’ll be able to string seven or eight expectations collectively and attempt to hit a grand slam relatively than a house run.
*Saquon Barkley is the NFL’s solely participant with 85+ scrimmage yards in each sport
*Dexter Lawrence matched his career-high with 4th sack final week
*Jihad Ward already has a career-best 6 tackles for loss

What Ought to We Count on From Broncos-Jets?
They handled the Elijah Moore scenario Friday by asserting that the second-year huge receiver can be inactive. Moore requested a commerce Thursday after being despatched residence following a blow-up with a coach. He has been actively posting and deleting tweets on social media pertaining to his low utilization charge, and this can be a distraction from a 22-year outdated that the Jets don’t want.
“To ask him to play a soccer sport with the place he’s from a psychological standpoint wouldn’t be truthful to him, for my part,” coach Robert Saleh advised reporters. “However that’s strictly my resolution.”
He’ll stay in New Jersey, figuring out with the conditioning workers as if he had been injured.
“It’s a part of what we cope with every single day,” Saleh stated. “We’ve had our discussions with Elijah. Buying and selling him just isn’t an possibility.
Gang Inexperienced is off to its greatest begin since 2015, and constructing momentum towards a robust Broncos protection would be the major problem. Denver is ranked third behind San Francisco and Buffalo for fewest yards allowed per sport, whereas their offense is ranked within the backside third of the league. The Jets are ranked tenth in factors per sport and seventeenth in yards per sport. Their protection permits 313.2 yards per sport, ninth-best within the NFL.
Extra telling: The Broncos are permitting 16,5 factors per sport, the fourth-lowest within the league, and are scoring simply 15.2 factors per sport, final within the NFL. They’re anticipated to attempt to make Zach Wilson throw the ball relatively than hand it off to rookie operating again sensation Breece Corridor (the favourite at +250 for Offensive Rookie of the 12 months), particularly after Wilson tried solely 18 passes towards the Packers, finishing 10.

Gang Inexperienced pressured Aaron Rodgers repeatedly final week, and their protection has been dominant in main then to wins by 23 factors towards Miami and 17 towards Pittsburgh. New York has gone below in half of their 10 street video games since final season, and this week’s over/below of 38 has been lowed by 4 1/2 factors by BetMGM over the course of the week. That’s as a result of a whopping 94% of bets and 81% of deal with has been on the below.
