NFL Week 4 comes to a conclusion tonight with Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks traveling across the country to take on Daniel Jones and the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on Monday Night Football. Both teams are hungry for a win, but both are also dealing with some injuries that could have an impact on how you want to bet this game.  Obviously, the biggest miss will be Giants running back Saquon Barkley who is listed as doubtful due to a high-ankle sprain, but the Giants will be looking to overcome that one, just as they did last week in their comeback victory over the Arizona Cardinals. SO let’s just get to it.



NFL Monday Night Football Best Bets: Seattle Seahawks vs New York Giants

The Spread: Seahawks -2

While most old-school bettors will talk to you about west coast teams flying across country and the myth of the home underdog on Monday Night Football, it is certainly worth noting that Seattle, on the road, is 6-2-1 against the spread versus the Giants. Granted, they haven’t faced each other at MetLife Stadium since 2017, but they’ve covered the spread in each of the last three and in four of their last five. The Seahawks run defense is strong, so I’m not all that worried about Matt Breida, and while their pass defense ranks 29th in DVOA, this will be the first week they have Jamaal Adams and Quandre Diggs patrolling the secondary. These two safeties could do a number on tight end Darren Waller and the rag-tag group of Giants receivers. Meanwhile, the Giants defense? Well…you know. Pick: Seahawks -2

The Total: 47

The Seahawks have averaged 29 points per game and have back-to-back 37-point performances. Meanwhile, the Giants have averaged just over 14 points per game, including being shut out once. Combining the averages will point you towards the under and while yes, the Giants defense is soft and Seattle will look to score another 30-plus points, I just don’t see it really happening. I don’t see some big back-and-forth between these two teams and Seattle will definitely sit and run the ball once they grab a lead. Maybe there’s some early scoring that will have you thinking the over could hit, but once Seattle grabs control of the game, things will slow down. Pick: Under
