New York Giants Analysis

Offensively, the Giants have struggled this season. With a 2-8 record and few wins to their credit, their offensive play has been far from impressive. Quarterback Daniel Jones’ play across six games showed mixed stats: 67% completion rate for 909 yards with more interceptions (6) than touchdowns (2); their ground game, led by Saquon Barkley has proven more efficient; 568 rushing yards have been amassed from his seven appearances with one touchdown scored; while receiver Darren Waller provided decent but not game-changing numbers (384 receiving yards over 8 games); ultimately though more explosive plays would help turn their season around and turn things around more.

Defensively, the Giants have shown many weaknesses that have contributed to their losing record. Their inability to consistently stop opposing offenses has been one of their major obstacles. If they hope to beat Commanders on Wednesday night, their defense must tighten up, especially against passes; pressure on quarterback and improvements to secondary will be key components in turning around a challenging season.

Washington Commanders Analysis

Washington Commanders have shown much more promise, particularly on offense. Quarterback Sam Howell has been one of their strongest performers with a 66.5% completion rate, 2783 passing yards and 17 touchdown-to-9 interception ratio over 10 games. Terry McLaurin has led their passing attack effectively as well, amassing 601 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns while providing critical contributions through running games as Brian Robinson Jr. amassed 485 yards rushing and 5 touchdowns over that same span of games.

Defensively, Washington’s Commanders have had mixed performances. While they have shown strength at times – particularly at home where 14 out of their last 18 total games went UNDER – there have been areas of concern; such as their ineffective performance against rival teams from their conference and division (they went 1-5 against NFC opponents over their past 6 games SU). To beat New York Giants Washington must use home advantage while simultaneously controlling Giants rushing attack while applying pressure to Daniel Jones to force errors and overcome his defensive prowess.

New York Giants vs. Washington Commanders Against the Spread

The New York Giants have struggled against the spread (ATS), going 2-8-1 over their last 11 games. Yet they have shown a remarkable edge against Washington recently – going 5-1 ATS in six encounters against them since 2011. Even during their overall poor season, New York has shown they can cover when facing them at FedEx Field.

Conversely, the Washington Commanders have not had much success against the Giants when playing at home recently, going 0-5 in their last 5 matchups against them ATS. However, November has proven fruitful for them; with four consecutive winning ATS performances. This may signal an upswing that could prove pivotal in this matchup.

New York Giants vs. Washington Commanders Free Pick

Based on odds, trends, team stats, and key players, here are the picks:

Moneyline: Commanders -360

Despite the Giants’ historical edge in this matchup, the Commanders’ overall better performance this season, especially at home, makes them the safer pick.

Spread: Giants +6.5 (-111)

The Giants have consistently covered the spread against Washington, and their ability to keep games close, particularly in this rivalry, suggests they can cover once again.

Total: 36.5 under (-106)

Both teams have trended towards lower-scoring games, especially the Giants, and this trend is likely to continue in this matchup.

Predicted Score: Washington Commanders 20, New York Giants 17

Overall, while the Commanders may secure a victory here, their ability to cover the spread makes the Giants an appealing ATS bet. For those looking for NFL picks today, taking Giants with points could be most reliable; keeping an eye out for an under-total score might also prove wise given both teams’ offensive struggles.
