As the season progresses, the schedule is getting shorter and shorter, and each victory has much more value from now on, so teams know that from this Week 10 of the season, they have to play each game as if it were a great final, to look for the ticket to the playoffs.
The Houston Texans are looking to snap a streak of three consecutive losses in this game. While the New York Giants will be looking to improve their record to 6-2.
This matchup is one of the least played in the history of the league, which has the New York Giants as the clear dominant team, who have managed to get 4 wins, while the Houston Texans have only been able to win in 1 opportunity, which was in the 2002 season.
Sunday, November 13 at 01:00 pm ET at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet the Giants
The New York Giants have won 3 of their last 4 home games. Quarterback Daniel Jones completes 65% of his passes for 1,399 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. Darius Slayton and Richie James combine for 423 yards per reception and 1 touchdown, while Saquon Barkley has 28 receptions.
The New York Giants have had an extra week to prepare for this game, as, they are coming off a bye in Week 9, and have the 5th best ground offense in the league.
The last time we saw them take the field, the Giants fell to the Seahawks, 27-13, in Seattle. It was only their second loss of the season.
Saquon Barkley is arguably the most important player for the Giants. Heading into Week 10, Barkley ranks third in the NFL in both ground yards (779) and total yards from the line of scrimmage (968). His 97.4 ground yards per game would easily surpass his previous personal record of 81.7, set in his Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2018.
Why Bet the Texans
On the other hand, we have the Houston Texans who have lost 3 of their last 4 away games this season. Davis Mills is completing 62.8% of his passes for 1,656 yards, 10 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions.
The Houston Texans’ ground game is averaging 101.9 yards per game, and Dameon Pierce leads the team with 678 yards and 3 touchdowns. Undoubtedly, the negative point that keeps the Texans with the terrible 1-6-1 record is their defense, as they allow 22.9 points per game and 398.1 yards per match.
Without a doubt, the brightest spot of the Texans’ 2022 season has been running back Dameon Pierce. The rookie won the starting job in training camp and has started every game.
Free Houston Texans vs. New York Giants Betting Pick
This weekend’s game will be the second consecutive game in which the Giants will face a top-level rookie running back, so they will have to run a very solid defensive scheme to prevent Pierce’s carries.
At MyBookie.ag we can see that there is a Moneyline that favors New York Giants at -360, while Houston Texans start at +280.
But we should also note that Barkley now faces perhaps his most mouthwatering matchup of the year, as, the Texans rank last in the NFL in ground yards allowed at 180.6 yards per game.
With that said, our pick is a comfortable win for the New York Giants, and we’re going with the SPREAD at -4.5 for the Giants.
Look for a straight win on the Moneyline New York Giants. If you put $100 on the Giants at -360, you’ll be looking at a $44.64 win with a total payout of $144.64.
