Expert Betting Tips
On paper, this matchup should go the way of the San Francisco 49ers, and a resounding victory shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone. I was under the impression that the New York Giants are the weakest club in the NFL when they were trailing by a significant margin to the Arizona Cardinals the week before. It's not even close. The New York Giants have returned, but it does not appear as though they have improved, and they will now be required to do even better here. Considering that we have only a few days to be ready, I won't be laying this many points. Additionally, the New York Giants have covered the spread in 12 of their last 16 games despite being given double-digit odds against them. Therefore, the total over points for the short week will be the best option, with the 49ers winning.
