NFL Underdog Pick for Week 6
October 14th 2009 - Special K
New York Giants (+3) at New Orleans Saints
Remember the days when Saints fans used to show up to games wearing paper bags
over their heads? Thanks to Drew Brees and Sean Peyton, the Aints of the past can no longer be found
in New Orleans. Let's be serious here, as a Saints fan, you know things are
really too good to be true now and that disappointment awaits you.
We all know that the only team the Giants can't beat are the Philadelphia
Eagles. Lately, the Giants time after time have risen up to the occasion
in big games. The Jets had a lot of success stopping the Saints #3 ranked
offense and so will the Giants. The Jets held the Saints to just one offensive
TD in week 4. I look for the #1 ranked defense in the NFL to do the same in this
game. The Giants have a more physical team on both offense and defense. Having
this control of the line of scrimmage will be the deciding edge in this game.
Don't expect Eli Manning and the Giants to be giving touchdowns away like
Sanchez and the Jets did either. Manning has hopefully learned from his mistakes
in dealing with Darren Sharper in the past. Sharper intercepted Eli 3 times back
in 2005, one of those interceptions went for a 92 yard TD. Sharper also
returned an INT against Manning for a TD in 2007.
Well maybe you have the argument that the Saints are coming off a bye week and
had plenty of time to prepare for this game. The Giants practically had a bye
week themselves having played the Raiders plus the Saints are 0-4 ATS in their
last 4 games following a bye week.
Take the Giants and the points
And if you like trends in your favor: The Giants are a remarkable 19-4
ATS in road games since 2007
