NFL Betting Predictions: New York Giants at Washington Redskins
This Sunday at 4:15 pm Eastern, The New York Giants travel to Griffith Stadium to take on the Washington Redskins. BetDSI.eu sportsbook http://betdsi.com/live-lines/football currently have the Giants as a -145 and giving up -3 points to the Redskins.
The New York Giants passing attack has not look good at all this preseason with ” The Other ” Manning throwing only 27 completions on 55 attempts for a terrible 49.1% completion rate, and starting up where he left lass year throwing 2 interceptions. The Giants running game is another story as they have been steam rolling defenses. RB Brandon Jacobs has run 19 times for 115 yards a mean 6.1 average and a TD. While rookie RB Da Rel Scott looks like an absolute stud out there carrying 14 times for an insane 213 yards an absolutely ridiculous 15.2 yards per carry and 2 touchdowns.
The Giants defense has been solid as usual they had won preseason games on their backs this year, tallying up 13 sacks, 6 forced fumbles , 2 interceptions one of which was returned for a TD. Giants fans have got to be happy with second year Jason Pierre-Paul as he has shown signs of getting to the QB and disrupting plays as he grabbed up 7 tackles and 2 sacks this preseason. The emergence of Jason Pierre-Paul is very important for New York as Justin Tuck is injured at the moment, and Osi Umenyiora has been injured and seeking a trade for awhile now.
The Washington Redskins offense has been so-so, the Skins’ have named Rex Grossman their starting QB over John “Dirt” Beck (in future will be referred to as simply John Dirt), and the Washington fans and myself are not happy! Washington may have ruined a feel good story of the year as Mr. Dirt was booted off team facility’s (for not being recognized by security, and not looking like a football player), and probably due to which would have led the Redskins to the promised land! Also in naming Rex Grossman the starter they have totally screwed up my plans in starting a John Dirt and Joe Dirt picture by picture collage! So if you want statistics on the Redskins offense you have to look elsewhere I refuse to put up numbers of Rex Grossman! ( doesnt matter anyway, he sucks ! )
The Redskins defense has looked really really good their first two preseason games and really really bad their final two preseason games. The defense has put up 15 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, and have intercepted the rock 3 times bringing one back for a TD. They have three guys with 2 sacks each showing they have a few players that can rush the QB.
My Prediction: I am not sold on ” The Other” Manning being an elite QB by any means , however he is head above heals better than any QB on the Redskins (with exception of John Dirt obviously!) The Skins’ decision to play Grossman over such a future icon as John Dirt just goes to show they are not in tune with the times.
I believe the New York Giants cover the spread and definitely win the game making a money line choice a safe bet in my book. However beware shall Rex Grossman get pulled at halftime because he is bombing the place up with the stench that is sometimes his play, you my friend will have this to contend with :
I am going to start the John Dirt Collage in hopes that the Redskins brass gets their heads out their arse and put in this future champion! Should Mr. Dirt get the starting job eventually I will add a pic by pic comparison to his brother Joe Dirt every week that he starts !
