New York Giants: The Giants (7-4 straight-up, 5-5-1 against the spread) were rested and ready coming off a bye last week and parlayed that into an easy 38-10 home win over Green Bay as 1-point favorites. Quarterback Eli Manning ended his slump by throwing for 249 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions after previously dealing with a tired arm. The G-Men also snapped a two-game losing streak. There was some bad news with backup running back Andre Brown (broken fibula) injured. That means Ahmad Bradshaw will have to carry a bigger load, with ideally more help from rookie first-round pick David Wilson. The Giants are 3-2 SU and 3-1-1 ATS away this year. The "under" is 4-1 in those contests.
Washington Redskins: The Redskins (5-6 SU, 6-5 ATS) have kept their playoff hopes alive with wins and covers the last two weeks, hosting Philadelphia (31-6) and visiting Dallas (38-31) on Thanksgiving. Rookie QB Robert Griffin III averaged a big 12 yards per attempt in the pair and had eight TD passes versus one pick. Griffin was happy to get Pierre Garcon (foot) back two games ago, and he had 86 receiving yards against Dallas. The Skins already have the NFL’s top-ranked rushing attack (163.5 yards per game) led by rookie Alfred Morris (982 yards) and the scrambling of Griffin (642). Washington and the Giants last met on Oct. 21 with New York pulling out a late 27-23 comeback win. The Redskins did cover as 6½-point ‘dogs and are 4-0 ATS in their last four versus their NFC East rivals. These teams have had different results on Monday night with New York going 4-1 ATS in its last five and Washington 1-4 ATS in its previous five.
