Giants/Jets Outlook: Week 1

 

Week 1 and could it have gotten off to a better start?! Yea I had Jordy Nelson riding the pine on my fantasy team but 76 points later the game was decided on the 1 yard line. Now comes the big opening weekend for the Giants and their quest for another Super Bowl and the Jets and their quest to win the AFC Championship.

Giants:

469 New York Giants -3  -110 -155
37½ O -110
U -110
20 O -120
U -110
470 Washington Redskins +3  -110 +135
17 O -120
U -110
Regular Season Week 1
With a depleted defense and now Justin Tuck in question for Sunday’s game, the Giants offense is going to have to step up big. They usually play well against the ‘Skins but they are far from 100% healthy. That being said, have to go with Giants -3 here. Even with the injuries they’ve had, the offense has looked pretty good and the defense has been able to hold their own for the most part. 37.5 as an over/under is being pretty modest and might have to do with it being the first week of the season but I don’t see the Redskins being able to hold the Giants offense down and they certainly won’t get blanked on the scoreboard. I’m going over. Week 1 is always hard to judge but Giants fans have to keep faith.
Jets:
477 Dallas Cowboys +5  -110 +200
40½ O -110
U -110
17½ O -120
U -110
478 New York Jets -5  -110 -240
23 O -110
U -120

Terrorism will never prevail in NY and it won’t hold back Jets fans from opening up the season on 9/11. A pretty big matchup here for both teams as Dallas tries to get a huge jump to their season. They have a double threat at receiver in Dez Bryant and Miles Austin but Austin, if he plays, is injured. Jason Witten will most likely see a number of targets that Bart Scott will have to lock down. The Jets offense just has too many weapons for the Dallas defense to stop and with a sloppy secondary, they will probably get exposed. Both teams will be playing like it’s the Super Bowl and it’s a nationally televised game on 9/11. Advantage Jets. I’m going with the Jets to win but not by more than 5 pts. Also taking the under on 40.5 points.
