The public looks as if it has forgiven the Giants for losing to a good Steelers team, while it keeps betting against the Bengals, which have lost four straight and haven't won since September. Besides, the Giants play their best on the road.
This line was as high as Giants minus-6 on Sunday, but the wiseguys came in on the home 'dog.
Two teams that struggle in the second half of the season
Green Bay Packers (6-3 SU, 4-5 ATS)
For a team listed among the favorites to win the Super Bowl, Green Bay certainly has a problem closing out games. The Packers are getting outscored by 0.1 points per game in the second half this season after outscoring foes by close to six points in the first half. Taking their foot off the gas has cost gambling Cheese Heads in games against Indianapolis and New Orleans. Green Bay has a week off this Sunday to develop some killer instinct before the playoff race heats up.
New England Patriots (5-3 SU, 5-3 ATS)
New England’s defense has been particularly mediocre in second halves this season. With a secondary that has been by many standards worse than last year’s, the Patriots have given up more points in the second half than the first in six of their eight games – and in one (Buffalo) they gave up the same (14 in each half). Pats coach Bill Belichick often greases the machinery for opposing offenses in the second half with loose pass coverage that allows teams to move the ball at the expense of taking time off the clock.
