Giants vs Commanders Predictions

POINT SPREAD: Washington Commanders -4.5 (-110) at WynnBet

In NFL Week 15 on Sunday Night Football, an NFC East basement battle will take place between the 7-5 New York Giants and the 7-5 Washington Commanders, this game flexed to the nighttime by the league since there are playoff implications, with the Commanders currently holding the 6th postseason NFC seed and the Giants holding onto the 7th seed.

These two teams last played in Week 13 when the game ended in a 20-20 tie when Giants PK Graham Gano’s last-second field goal attempt came up short in OT, a game in which these defenses kept the teams evenly matched by snuffing each other on third down, with New York converting on just 4-13 third downs and Washington converting on just 3-14, a true equalizer.  

The sportsbooks say the Giants covered the spread in each of their last 4 games against the Commanders at FedExField, but it’s the final push of the season and since Washington is more productive than New York on both sides of the ball, we like the Commanders to cover the spread at home, especially given the Giants have lost 6 of their last 7 games against NFC East teams.

Funny how the oddsmakers have predicted this Week 15 points total half a point (40.5) more than what the two teams totaled in Week 13 (40), a possible sign that they expect similar results from these divisional rivals, but given that the experts also say that seven of the Commanders' last eight games after coming off overtime have gone over the total points line, that’s what we like here.

This game got flexed by the schedulers into the SNF spot for a reason – these are two big market teams playing for Wildcard spots in the playoffs and given that their offenses combine for an average of 40 points per week, it makes sense how the oddsmakers see this one, but these defenses allow an average of 42.8 points per week, so it’s another reason to favor the over.

Always remember to check the predicted weather conditions before December games when the event is being played in a full outdoor stadium like FedExField in Landover, Maryland, and currently snow, wind, and cold are in the forecast so that could keep scoring low, as could injuries, with both Giants and commanders listing 9 players each as questionable to play.

PLAYER PARLAY: B. Robinson 1+ Rush TD + S. Barkley 1+ Rush TD (+260) at DraftKings

We found this fun Week 15 Special Bet from DraftKings – a player parlay that ties together the two best RBs that will compete in the game, asking the bettor to guess whether Commanders Brian Robinson and Giants Saquon Barkley can each post a rushing touchdown during this game, a fun way to wager if you love both teams (or neither one!) and still want to place some action.

RB Brian Robinson is a 6’ 1” 225 pound rookie who played his college ball at Alabama and was a 3rd round draft pick in the last offseason, now having played in nine NFL games after starting seven of them, averaging 3.8 yards per carry, a double threat back who can run hard (147 car, 563 yards, 2 TDs) and who will be facing the Giants’ 29th ranked run defense that allows almost 150 rushing yards per game.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley is a 5’ 11” 233 pound wrecking ball now in his fifth NFL season after experiencing some time off for injuries, this season averaging 4.3 yards per carry after rushing the ball 251 times for 1,083 yards and 8 TDs, a solid scorer who must get past the Commanders’ ninth-ranked run defense that keeps opponents to just 110 ground yards per game.
