Giants are on Fire on the Field & at the Betting Window

The New York Giants have rattled off six straight wins and will look to make it seven against Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field on Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Giants are 1-11 SU in their last 12 games as an underdog of 5.5 or less.
  • The Steelers are 14-5-1 ATS in their last 20 games at home after failing to cover in their most recent home game.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Steelers' last six games as favorite.

Sportsbooks opened the G-Men as 5.5-point underdogs with a total of 50.

New York has established itself as one of the best bets in the NFL, going 5-1 ATS during the aforementioned winning streak. The Steelers have tons of weapons, but I’m not quite sure if they warrant the -5.5 number. Books might still be overlooking the Giants.

The Giants are also on a tear when it comes to covering the spread against the Steelers. New York is 3-1 ATS in its last four tilts with Pittsburgh.

Totals of 50 or more points might scare off OVER bettors, but the Giants are proving to be a solid bet in that regard. New York has gone OVER in six of its last eight when facing a closing total of at least 50.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

Sportsbooks, including Bovada, had set the Pittsburgh Steelers as -6-point favorites on the opening line for this contest. The total was hovering around 50 earlier in the week (check for the current over-under lines at MyBookie).
