Giants Commanders Prediction, WSH covers easy

Just two weeks ago, they tied. Now, two popular NFC East squads meet again with playoff positioning on the line Sunday night as the Washington Commanders host the New York Giants.

Coincidentally, they’re also tied in the standings with identical 7-5-1 records. The Giants have done well at Washington and done well as underdogs, but they seem to be trending the wrong way at the wrong time of the year.

With the Commanders favored by 4.5 points, let’s look at both sides.

Giants Commanders Prediction: Odds WSH -4.5, Total 40.5 at FanDuel | Matchup Stats

WHY THE GIANTS WILL COVER

A 4.5-point spread is large considering the result just two weeks ago, especially in this unpredictable division. They are 5-1 ATS in their past 6 visits here and 7-2 ATS in their past 9 games as an underdog.

Trusting the Commanders with this many points at home in a divisional clash is a big ask.

WHY THE COMMANDERS WILL COVER

They have the momentum advantage and are at home with extra time to prepare coming off a Week 14 bye. As favorites, the Commanders usually win, going 9-1-1 SU in their past 11 games laying points.

The Giants look lost and are 2-9 ATS in December games and have not won in seven recent divisional games.

GIANTS COMMANDERS PREDICTION

The Giants might be ready to throw in the towel after that brutal Week 14 loss to the Eagles, so this could be a Washington blowout.
