Football betting favors the New York Giants even though they have lost their last three games.
The Giants are 4.5 point NFL betting favorites as they host the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Here is a look at what should be an excellent matchup on Sunday between the Chargers and Giants.
Football betting has New York leading the all-time series 5-4 but the Chargers have won two of the last three. There could be a lot of points scored in this football betting matchup considering New York’s defense can’t stop anyone. Philip Rivers could have a big day. The NFL betting total on this game is 47.5. Rivers has 11 touchdowns in his past five games against NFC teams. New York still has an offense with Eli Manning that can put points on the board so this should be an exciting game on Sunday.
San Diego is 4-3 straight up this season but they are just 2-5 against the football betting pointspread. The Chargers are 10th in points scored but their defense ranks in the bottom third of the league. Four of San Diego’s games this season have gone over the total with one tie. The Giants are 5-3 straight up and 4-3-1 against the football betting number. Five of their games this season have gone over the total.
San Diego has been a very good team getting football betting points. The Chargers are 18-6-3 ATS in their last 27 games as an underdog. Overall on the road though, the Chargers have struggled going 3-7 in football betting in their last 10 road games. San Diego is only 1-4 vs. the NFL betting odds in their last 5 games in November.
New York has won five in a row against AFC teams. New York has been solid in the month of November going 5-1 in football betting in their last 6 games that month. The Giants have been a solid football betting favorite as they are 9-4-1 in their last 14 games as a favorite.
19 of the last 25 San Diego road games have gone over in football betting. San Diego has simply been a team that goes over the NFL betting total regardless of where they play. The Over is 8-3-2 in the Chargers last 13 games overall. Three of the past five New York games have gone over the football betting total.
