Giants star running back Saquon Barkley Would like to play Week 6 If Compared to New York Giants travel to Foxboro (8:20 P.M ET, FOX/NFL) to take about the New England Patriots.
Without Barkley, the Giants have no prospect of beating the Patriots. Despite Barkley they would likely still lose so the question is that they keep it close enough to cover the spread?
The information that Barkley might be back has not ceased cash from coming in about the Patriots. The line opened at -15.5 and sits at -16.5 or 17 depending on where you go shopping. The total opened at 46 and now sits at 44 with a few books showing 44.5.
While the Giants offensive line fought from the Vikings, the Patriots defense looked dominant against the Redskins. Moving up from a Bill Belichik defense is a completely different ball game although daniel Jones has been an update to Eli Manning. The rookie quarterback will get looks and formations that he has not seen.
Barkleys accession will definitely help slow down the Patriots blitz. The Vikings managed to do that against the Giants because with no danger of Barkley, they could bring stress. If Barkley is not prepared to go the Giants will likely be at an even bigger disadvantage than usual with Wayne Gallman game with a concussion. That will leave undrafted rookie running back Jon Hilliman because the newcomer.
The manner in which the Patriots are taking care of business is, while have not been the most remarkable. The demanding defense did provide them a real exam but Buffalos defense is very good, particularly. The Giants defense is not good anywhere. They will have a tough time getting pressure on Brady, which is the case for the majority of teams.
The Vikings run offense tore the Giants to shreds and we can expect to observe the same thing from the Patriots. The ball havent run in addition to theyd have liked to possess year but theyre top 10 in attempts. Add to that the fact that the
Giants are one of the worst run defenses in the league and it might be a very long day for its defense. As poor as theyve been at stopping the run, their secondary has been even worse.
If you are trying to wager the side it must be Patriots or even nothing. Should you insist on choosing the Giants, then you need to try and wait to find out whether you can get it in -17 or even -17.5. The problem with waiting is that Saquon Barkley coming back means you are not likely to find the line transfer from the Giants prefer anymore than it has.
