The Green Bay Packers are looking to further their case as a playoff team in Week 14 against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.
New York has made a bit of a push under quarterback Tommy DeVito, but does the team see the magic run out after having a bye in Week 13?
Oddsmakers seem to think so, setting the Packers as six-point favorites on the road against the Giants.
I am using the latest odds for this game to predict the final score for this matchup, which should end up in the Packers’ favor.
Packers vs. Giants odds, spread and total
Packers score prediction
This total is rather high for two teams that are averaging less than 37 combined points per game this season.
Green Bay enters this matchup averaging 21.5 points per game, while the Giants are down at 13.3 – the second-lowest mark in the NFL.
While Tommy DeVito has played well for the team in recent weeks, he’s going to have a tough matchup against this Green Bay pass rush. The Packers are getting pressure on the quarterback on 23.7 percent of dropbacks this season – the fifth-highest mark in the NFL.
Green Bay has looked solid – especially on offense – in recent weeks, but I can’t stay away from a Monday Night Football trend that has been going on all season.
The UNDER is 13-2 in Monday Night Football games, so I expect the defense to reign supreme at MetLife Stadium.
So, how should we look at the point differential in this game? Well, there is a glaring difference between these two teams.
The Packers entered Week 14 ranking 13th in the NFL in yards per play on offense and 15th in yards per play allowed.
The Giants? Well, they entered this week 32nd and 28th in those categories. Plus, New York is averaging a margin of defeat of 10.8 points per game as a home dog this season.
Give me the Packers to win this game rather easily.
Final score prediction: Packers 24, Giants 10
