NFL betting -Washington Redskins at New York Giants

NFL betting on the 2008 regular season begins on Thursday, September 4th as the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants host the Washington Redskins.

The game will be televised on NBC and the Giants are a 3.5 point football betting favorite with a total of 40.5

NFL betting odds show that the New York Giants were a pointspread covering machine late last season, but all of those games were on the road.  This year they open up at home as a football betting favorite over Washington.  Going against the defending Super Bowl champs the following season has been a moneymaker overall but there is an exception to that rule and it is in NFL odds Week 1 action.  The defending Super Bowl champs are 7-0 straight up and 6-0-1 against the NFL betting pointspread in the past seven years in Week 1 NFL betting action.  New York was 9-6-1 against the NFL betting pointspread a year ago but only 4-4 versus the football betting number at home.  The Giants were 8-8 in terms of over/unders last season but they did go over in 6 of their 8 home games in NFL betting last season.

The Giants are not getting a great amount of NFL betting respect in this game.  They are the defending Super Bowl champs, at home, and yet they are laying just over a field goal against a Redskins team that has not done anything in recent years and has Jason Campbell at quarterback.  The Redskins finished 9-7 straight up last year and 7-7-2 against the NFL betting pointspread.  The Redskins were 4-3-1 against the football betting number on the road.  NFL betting stats show that Washington was 7-9 in terms of over/unders, including 4-4 on the road.  The Redskins are 4-2 versus the NFL betting number in their last six games as an away underdog.

NFL betting stats show that since 2001 the teams have met 14 times in the regular season and the Giants are 9-5 straight up.  Last year the road team won both of the regular season meetings and both games went under the NFL betting total.
