Making sports betting picks is one of my specialties, and today at Cappers Info, I’m making my Monday Football Tipster pick based upon the football trends and NFL odds for the New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins game on Monday, December 3rd at FedEx Field at 8:30 p.m. ET.
New York Giants (7-4, 5-5-1 ATS) -3
Washington Redskins (5-6, 6-5 ATS) +3
The Giants are very quietly a 3-8 team this year when it comes to ‘total’ NFL betting, and I’ve definitely taken notice of that. They are a team that generally gets better defensively when push comes to shove at the end of the campaign, and their ‘D’ should be able to put forth another solid effort this week against QB Robert Griffin III and the Redskins.
Washington has played well at times this year, especially after taking two games in a row by scoring 69 points combined in these two efforts. However, prior to that, the team scored just 13 against the Carolina Panthers and 12 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and it really doesn’t seem all that likely that they are going to do more than the 23 that they scored against the G-Men the first time around.
And then there’s the idea that the Giants are going to play suspect football as well. They came out full of sound and fury last week by beating the heck out of the Green Bay Packers, but this isn’t a game in which their backs are against the wall. Generally, that’s bad news for New York, which has played significantly worse football in games in which it has been favored by more than a field goal than games in which it was a dog. Getting to 51 is a heck of a challenge for two teams that know a lot about each other, and in the end, it feels like this is a game that should be falling short of the number, which would mark the fifth time in the last six games in this series that that were to happen.
