Redskins vs. Giants Betting Lines

What: Washington Redskins vs. New York Giants – Week 7
When: 1:00pm EST. Sunday, October 21st 2012
Where: MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey

The Washington Redskins 3-3 (3-3 ATS) are chasing the New York Giants 4-2 (3-3 ATS) in the NFC East. A win on the road would bump the Redskins into 1st place in the division, with the 3-3 Eagles and 2-3 Cowboys not far behind.

The Redskins won both of their games against the Giants last season, and they’re better this year. After an emotional road win in SF last week, I don’t expect the Giants to play nearly as strong this week against Washington. Lets take a look at the latest Redskins vs. Giants betting lines for week 7 of the 2012 season.

The point spread opened at -7 in favor of the NY Giants, but has been bet down a point since it opened. Amazingly, BetOnline and Bovada have the same money line right now (amazing because Bovada usually has a larger vig).

Washington Redskins: Week 7

Match-up wise these two teams are extremely close. Washington has an explosive offense that scores an average of 29.7 PPG (3rd) and gains an average of 394 YPG (5th). The Redskins passing attack still isn’t great, but improving.

The Redskins come into this match-up with the 2nd best rushing attack thanks in large part to RGIII. Washington has rushed the football for an average of 166 RYPG (2nd) and they should find running room against the Giants 16th ranked run defense.

Through the first six weeks of the 2012 season, the Redskins have played better on the road than they have at home. They’ve averaged more points on offense, given up less points on defense, and they’ve also been gaining more yards on the road.

New York Giants: Week 7

The New York Giants come into the game banged up a bit, and this could be a letdown situation for the G-Men. They just won a huge game on the road against the 49ers last week, but I think they’re going to struggle in this one.

Bradshaw has been hurt all week again, and without him the Giants won’t have a healthy rushing threat. The Redskins will be able to control the tempo of the game with their rushing attack and I could even see them winning this one straight up.

Washington Redskins vs. New York Giants Point Spread

Bet on Washington Redskins +6 (-110) at BetOnline.com

If the Washington Redskins focus on Eli Manning and keep him in-check this week, they could win this game. The New York Giants won’t rush on this defense, and the Redskins should be able to put up points offensively. Getting +6 points in this division game is great value.

Redskins vs. Giants Over/Under

As of Sunday morning at 8:20am EST, the Redskins vs Giants over/under is 51 points at both BetOnline and Bovada. However, if you like the under, go to BetOnline where you can get -110 instead of -115 at Bovada. If you like the over, go to Bovada and get -105 instead of -110 at BetOnline.

My pick for the Giants vs Redskins over/under is 51 (-110) on the under at BetOnline. This is the highest game total of the week, and I’m not sure how effective the Giants offense will be without a solid running game.

Giants vs. Redskins Money Line

The Redskins vs Giants money line is the same at BetOnline and Bovada. The Redskins money line is +220, and the Giants money line is -260. Since I think there’s a decent chance the Giants could lose this home game, I’m not seeing value in -260. At the same time, I’m not excited enough about +220 on the Redskins either. I’ll probably sit this one out, unless I see the Redskins line go to something like +250. I don’t think we’ll see it go that far, but if we do, that could be a good value.
