3 units on Seattle PICK () (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
New York is off to a seemingly hot 3-1 start, but lots of questions remain as to just how good they are. They have three wins vs. teams that are collectively just 2-10 on the season and there's a strong argument that they should have lost last week. To me, they still have a lot to prove. The Seahawks fall into the category of a soft team, but have covered two straight and have looked much better than they did a year ago in those two games. The Giants’ strength was supposed to be their ground game, but it has sputtered through the first quarter of the season, generating just 350 yards on 107 carries (just 3.27 yards per tote). ANd, on defense, this team is giving up over 360 yards per game. The Seattle offense scored almost as many points a week ago as they did in the first three and should have enough to hang tough with the G-Men. I would expect the Giants to focus on their ground attack to eat up the clock vs. trying to score a ton. The Giants have caved as home chalk recently, going just 4-9 ATS in their last 13. They have also lost six striaght against the number at home vs. a team with a losing road record. The Giants are not ready for a double-digit chalk role. Take the Seahawks and the points.
