WFT Vs. NY Giants Moneyline
This is a highly anticipated matchup for both teams as they each have a lot to prove after losing their opening games in Week 1. Many are quick to count out the Giants’ NFL odds being that they suffered a blowout loss to the Denver Broncos last week but when it comes to facing off with Washington, the Giants have won 7 of their last 9 meetings.
Washington might have turned a page though with their top-notch defense that finished in the Top-5 in 2020. Also, it appears clear that Washington has the best player on both teams in WR Terry McLaurin, as he has gone for over 75 yards in every game he has played against the Giants. Their improved offensive line could also be the deciding factor in Antonio Gibson’s role since Gibson rushed for 90 yards in Week 1.
With that, Washington’s odds could be taken with confidence as they look to start on a new winning streak.
