The Giants are favored at home but those that bet on football are not overly confident in New York considering the Giants have lost four in a row after winning five straight.
NFL bet trends have the Giants winning six of the last ten games against Atlanta. The teams have met six times this bet on football decade and the road team has won every time. The Giants won at Atlanta in 2000, 2006 and in 2007 while the Falcons won in New York in 2002, 2003 and in 2004. It is definitely strange to see a road team win so often in an NFL bet series. What is also interesting about those games is that all six went under the bet on football total. Atlanta and the Giants have solid offenses so that NFL bet trend may not continue in this game.
While the Giants have lost four straight and are not playing well, the Falcons are not doing much better. They lost last week against Carolina to fall to 1-4 on the road this NFL bet season. Atlanta also lost Pro Bowl running back Michael Turner to an ankle injury. His status for this game could be a key to the NFL bet outcome.
Neither Atlanta nor the Giants expected to be at 5-4 after their solid starts and now one of the two teams is going to fall to .500. The Giants had a bye last week so they may have the advantage in this bet on football contest.
The Giants have some interesting NFL bet stats. They are 5th in the league in total yards and 8th in points scored. On defense they are 1st in fewest yards allowed but what is weird is that they are 21st in points allowed. Usually that means the defense is being put into difficult spots by the offense or by special teams. The Falcons are 12th in points scored and 17th in points allowed this NFL bet year.
New York is 1-2-1 against the NFL bet pointspread at home this season. Atlanta is 2-3 on the road this season versus the NFL bet lines. The last four games for Atlanta have all gone over the NFL bet total.
