Football betting could be looking up on the New York Giants the last two weeks of the season.
They host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday and New York is a solid NFL betting favorite.
Football betting last week had the Giants completely dominating Washington in a 45-12 slaughter. The Giants played extremely well and easily covered the NFL betting pointspread. "We played with a greater purpose and we were the team with more at stake and we played that way," head coach Tom Coughlin said. The Giants are a game behind Green Bay and Dallas in the Wild Card race. The Giants don’t control their own destiny though as they need either Green Bay or Dallas to lose a football betting game down the stretch. That could happen though and if the Giants play like they did last week against Washington, they are going to be tough to beat.
The Giants may not have an easy game in football betting against Carolina. The Panthers were very impressive last week as they upset the Minnesota Vikings. Jonathan Stewart ran up and down on the Vikings defense and quarterback Matt Moore was excellent. Whether Carolina can carry that over on the road at New York is the question to be answered in football betting.
Carolina has some nice football betting trends for this game.
The Panthers are 6-0 in football betting in their last 6 vs. the NFC.
The Panthers are 4-1 vs. the line in their last 5 road games.
The Panthers are 39-19-1 vs. the pointspread in their last 59 games in December.
New York is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 football betting matches in December. Even though the Giants routed Washington last week in NFL betting, they are still only 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. They are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The favorite in this series between the Carolina Panthers and New York Giants has won four of the last five meetings vs. the football betting odds.
The last five Carolina games have gone under the football betting total. Four of the last five New York games have gone over. Five of the last seven New York home games have gone over and in this NFL betting series between Carolina and New York, four of the last five have gone over the football betting number.
