PICK SIXTY SPORTS WEEKLY TIP:
As teams start moving into the second round of their divisional matchups we can start factoring an element of revenge into equation and this week, the New York Giants are heading into Philadelphia looking for some payback after a 36-21 loss to the Eagles in Week 5. New York is playing on a short week after one of the more painful Monday nighters in recent memory and looking for win No. 2 on the season while trying to end its streak of eight-straight road losses dating back to Week 10, 2012.
This is a short turnaround situation meaning that the previous meeting was only two or three weeks ago and when the first game played “Over” the total, the general trend in game 2 shows 18 overs, 25 unders and a push. A closer look shows that Week 17 games went 0-5 O/U which makes sense since a lot of these games may have been less meaningful. Weather could also factor. That also means that before Week 17 the record is 18-20-1 O/U and look what happens when we apply conditions to the total and visiting team’s record:
Games with a total of 40 or more involving road teams with poor records show 10 overs, 2 unders and a push with the home team scoring an average of 32.9 points. Michael Vick’s health is key to this contest but keep an eye on that total. If Vick starts, consider backing the Giants and Eagles OVER 51 points.
