Low-scoring Cardinals Favored in Clash with Free-falling Giants

gabbert_cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals will be looking to extend their SU win streak while pegged as betting favorites to four games when they host the struggling New York Giants on Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium. The Cardinals return home after dropping a 20-15 decision in Washington as 4-point underdogs, while the Giants saw their SU slide extended to four games with a 34-29 loss to Philadelphia as 7.5-point home underdogs.

Shark Bites
  • The Cardinals are 13-4-1 ATS in their last 18 games against NFC East teams.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Giants’ last seven games in December.
  • The Giants are 2-13 SU in their last 15 games.

The Cardinals offense continued to stumble in last week’s loss to the Redskins. Arizona has averaged just 14.33 points per game during its current 1-2 SU run, and has seen the point total go UNDER in its past two outings. Sunday’s contest marks just the second time this season that Arizona is favored on home turf. The Cardinals failed to cover in an 18-15 win over San Francisco as 6-point home favorites in Week 4, and are now 4-12 ATS in their past 16 as home chalk.

The Giants churned out their highest point production of the season in last week’s loss to the Eagles, but have surrendered 27 ppg during their current 0-4 SU run, and have produced just 16 ppg in three straight road losses. New York has also covered in consecutive outings just once in the past 17 games.

The road team has emerged victorious in each of the past four meetings between these teams. Their past two clashes in the desert have been high-scoring affairs, with New York averaging 34 ppg in a pair of wins. In addition, the point total has reached 51 or higher in three of their past five overall matchups.
