Giants vs. Commanders Prediction and Pick
Call it a grudge bet, but I was on the OVER 40.5 the last time these two teams played, and ended up losing when it finished in a 20-20 tie. I’m back on the OVER in the rematch and it’s largely due to my belief is was the right bet to back in the first game.
In that game, the two teams combined for 727 total yards of offense. In most cases, that many yards would lead to more than 40 points.
A big issue both teams has in the first game was converting third downs. They went a combined 7-for-27 on third downs. An improvement in that area that game will go a long way in the OVER cashing.
The Washington offense has largely done what its needed to do to win games this season, and I’ll continue to trust it again on Sunday Night Football.
