The season really can’t end soon enough for the New York Giants. The injuries continue to pile up, and they’re down to Mike Glennon at quarterback, assuming he’s healthy enough to play this week. The schedule is serving them up to the Los Angeles Chargers this week. The Chargers are struggling to find some consistency lately, alternating wins and losses since Week 8. They won last week, which would put them on track for a loss, but the Giants should help them put together a streak.
Here, we’ll take a look at our picks for best bets for the Giants-Chargers matchup in Week 14 of the NFL season. Odds come via DraftKings Sportsbook.
Spread: Chargers -9.5
Point total: 43
Moneyline: Giants +330, Chargers -435
Our picks for Giants vs. Chargers
Pick against the spread: Chargers -9.5
The Giants might be starting Mike Glennon, but if he’s cleared from the concussion protocol in time for Sunday’s game. If Glennon can’t play, welp, the Giants will turn to Jake Fromm. New York’s defense has been playing better, helping them cover the spread four of their last six games. But with Glennon or Fromm under center, forget it.
Over/under: Under 43
Each of the Giants’ last six games has gone under, thanks a defense holding opponents to an average of 16 points per game during that span. There’s also the little matter of New York needing to score points.
Preferred player prop: Mike Williams O65.5 receiving yards (-115)
This may be chalky or cliche but there’s no way Mike Will doesn’t go for under 100 receiving yards against the Giants, right? With Keenan Allen out, Williams should see a ton of targets. He’s had at least six targets in four straight games with Allen in the lineup. Williams is coming off a 110-yard performance against the Bengals, so there’s some momentum there. He’ll at least get 2-3 deep balls from QB Justin Herbert and those attempts alone could get him to 66 yards.
