This time the Giants are the “home” team and they are the NFL football betting favorite. NFL betting has the Giants as a 3-point favorite with a total of 36. Some of the focus in this NFL football betting game will be on Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez who was named the starter for the regular season this past week. Sanchez struggled somewhat last week against Baltimore as NFL betting has it but he did bounce back and make some plays. He will look to get some serious work on Saturday against the Giants as both team’s starters will play at least a half as NFL football betting info indicates.
The Jets are getting a little bit healthier as Darrelle Revis, Kris Jenkins, Damien Woody and Jay Feely could all play on Saturday after missing last week. New York will be looking to give wide receiver David Clowney more playing time on Saturday. He leads the Jets in catches and touchdowns this preseason as NFL betting stats have it. “He’s definitely going to play more with the ones. I think everybody would agree he’s earned that right,” New York head coach Rex Ryan said. “He’s looked fantastic in the preseason. Every time you look around, there he goes. As far as changing his spot on the depth chart, we play to play a lot of those guys anyway, almost by committee. But we want to see him with the first group some. I think he’s earned that right. We’ll see how he does.”
The Giants did not play well last week in a 17-3 NFL betting loss to Chicago so they will want to get things in gear on Saturday. They lost defensive tackle Jay Alford last week to a knee injury and he is out for the NFL betting season. Chris Canty and Aaron Ross are out for this NFL football betting game but Antonio Pierce Kenny Phillips could play. The Giants will want their offense to produce something on Saturday since they got nothing last week in NFL betting. Quarterback Eli Manning should get a lot of reps as the first string offense looks to get ready for the NFL betting regular season. One of the problems for New York as NFL betting indicates is at wide receiver where they have yet to find a replacement for Plaxico Burress.
The Jets and Giants play every year and the Giants hold the 21-18-1 advantage in NFL betting. Last season the Jets won 10-7 in preseason NFL betting.
