New York Giants vs Las Vegas Raiders.
Stadium: MetLife (East Rutherford).
The Giants came to their senses a bit and even trounced Carolina a fortnight ago, but the season seems to have been lost anyway. A home game against Las Vegas is one of the last chances to get back in the playoff race. Will Joe Judge’s team be able to take advantage of it?Get Your Welcome Bonus!
The Giants should be thinking about next season
It’s not the first season the Giants have done quite well defensively but lack a game on offense. The main reason is probably hidden in the organization’s front office because the situation with the attack is very strange. Not only did the Giants decide to rely on quarterback Daniel Jones, even though it was clear from the start that he would not be able to play the primary role, but they also appointed Jason Garrett as their offensive coordinator. The coach failed even with Dak Prescott in Dallas, so why should he succeed with Daniel Jones?
The Giants come into the game against Vegas with a 2-6 lead. While there is little chance to contend for a playoff spot, the last two games between the teams have at least given them something to be optimistic about. First, the New York team outscored Carolina 25-3 on home ice, then went on to cause Kansas City some problems, falling by just one field goal, 17-20.
Las Vegas are unstoppable after a coaching change
After the unexpected firing of Jon Gruden, who left his post for non-football reasons, the Las Vegas Raiders played two games. Both times they won, above all in a very good offensive performance. This turnaround had something to do with an emotional release. There was a lot of tension in Gruden’s final weeks with the Raiders.
Beating Denver 34-24 and Philadelphia 33-22, the Nevada team moved into first place in the AFC West Division with a 5-2 record. This season, Vegas have a realistic chance of winning the quartet, given the Kansas City Chiefs’ troubles and the revamped Chargers’ instability. That prospect should inspire Vegas even more.
Expert Betting Tips
Las Vegas came out on top in their division. This can add even more to the game at the expense of emotion. The team’s offense looks particularly bright. Derek Carr is one of the best quarterbacks in the league and, when he gets high, he can make outstanding plays. It looks like the New York Giants have no chance in the upcoming game. The Giants’ defense is no better than Denver’s or Philadelphia’s, and it won’t stop Carr and company. And a lot has already been said about the New York team’s attack.
The prediction is a win for the Las Vegas Raiders.
