Giants home to Redskins in NFL betting action
Washington Redskins vs New York Giants Odds
The Washington Redskins snapped a 6-game losing skid against the New York Giants back in Week 1, but the Giants will have all the motivation in the world to win at home here on the Week 15 odds menu.
Eli Manning led a stirring comeback against the Cowboys and now control their playoff destiny if they win out. The Redskins have lost 6 of 7 here, although the total has been the safer bet when these teams meet.
The past 8 meetings, the UNDER has prevailed 7 times. We expect the Giants to be careful and the Redskins to try to grind out a spoiler victory against their hated NFC East foe.
New York opened as 7-point favorites , while the NFL total was set at 45.5 for over under betting.
