Washington Football Team (6-10, 3-5 Away) vs. New York Giants (4-12, 3-4 Home)
Date: Sunday, Jan. 9, 2021
Start Time: 1 p.m. EST
Location: MetLife Stadium — East Rutherford, NJ
TV Coverage: FOX

It was only five weeks ago that Washington was nipping at the heels of the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East Division standings. Unfortunately, things went south big-time from there. Ron Rivera’s team has now lost four straight and finds itself already eliminated from postseason contention entering Week 18. After a strong start last week that culminated in a 16-7 halftime lead, Washington was shut out in the second half and lost 20-16 at home to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Sunday’s game might very well be the last chance for Taylor Heinicke to prove his worth as an NFL starting quarterback. Meanwhile, what was presumed to be one of the best defensive fronts in the league will be further depleted in Week 18. Pass-rusher Montez Sweat has already been ruled out for the regular-season finale.

For the Giants and their fans, this season simply cannot come to an end soon enough. The decision to shut down starting quarterback Daniel Jones several weeks ago was justified given that New York was well out of playoff contention. Unfortunately, the result has been some pretty atrocious offensive football. The Giants have only exceeded 10 points scored once in their last five games, each of them losses.

With Mike Glennon having been ruled out for Week 18 with a wrist injury, former Georgia Bulldog Jake Fromm will get another opportunity to start at quarterback on Sunday. While the Washington secondary is certainly ripe for exposure, the Giants’ may lack the ability to do so with a third-string QB under center. Expect New York to try and get star RB Saquon Barkley involved as they try to give the home fans something to cheer about.

Washington vs. NY Giants NFL Betting Picks and Predictions

Is betting on the New York Football Giants an attractive wager to make? Absolutely not. Is it the best way for bettors to obtain a positive ROI value on this Week 18 matchup? Yes, it is. One positive that Giants backers can count on is a quality effort from the defense. New York has been particularly stingy on defense when playing at home all season long. After just narrowly coming up short in the first matchup against Washington, the Giants will also have the revenge angle working on Sunday. The defensive front headlined by Leonard Williams figures to have a decisive advantage over what is a very poor Washington offensive line.

The fact that the point spread for this divisional game is still sitting at a full seven points is huge in terms of betting. The chance to have action on the key number of seven (margin of a full touchdown and PAT) offers bettors some value. Divisional underdogs playing at home tend to do very well ATS historically. At the current optimal odds of -109, OddsShopper views a bet on the Giants +7 as having a 6% expected ROI.

Washington vs. Giants Best Bet: Giants +7 (-109)
