The Redskins had the Giants beat in their first meeting, but gave the game away in a 23-27 road loss on October 21st. They outgained the Giants 480-393 for the game, but committed four turnovers while also allowing the game-winning 77-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Victor Cruz with 1:13 to play.
There’s no question the Redskins want revenge after that defeat, and they have certainly played the Giants very tough over the last few years. Washington is a perfect 4-0 ATS in its last four meetings with New York, winning two of those games outright, and not once losing by more than 4 points.
Washington features one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL. It is scoring 26.8 points per game while ranking 7th in the league in total offense at 385.4 yards per game. After gaining 480 total yards on the Giants in the first meeting, Robert Griffin III and company should have their way with a New York stop unit that ranks 23rd in total defense (366.6 yards/game).
The Redskins are 10-0 ATS versus terrible defensive teams – allowing at least 6 yards/play in the second half of the season since 1992. It is winning in this spot by an average of 10.2 points per game. The Giants are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. a team with a losing record. Washington is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 vs. NFC East opponents. Bet the Redskins Monday.
