New York Giants now 10.5-point road underdogs vs....


The New York Giants opened Week 13 as modest 2.5-point road underdogs against the Miami Dolphins, which was a positive considering most home teams get three points out of the gate. However, things have changed drastically since then.

With word that quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) could miss several weeks, oddsmakers began to reverse course for Sunday’s game. The Giants dipped to +3.5 early in the week and now, as of this writing, are all the way down to +6.5.

That change is due to a combination of money moving and the final injury reports, which saw cornerback Adroee’ Jackson alongside Jones as ruled out.

Compounding matters, the Giants placed linebacker Trent Harris and tight end Kaden Smith on injured reserve. Wide receivers Sterling Shepard and Kadarius Toney are also listed as doubtful.

These injuries have also led to a major change for the over/under. Initially set at 41.5 point, it has dipped to 39.5 points.

Expect a low-scoring, defensive battle with some ugly football in Florida on Sunday.
