Week 8 of the NFL season will resume on Sunday mid-afternoon with a compelling NFC showdown between the New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks. Coverage begins from Lumen Field in Seattle at 4:25 p.m. ET on FOX.
NEW YORK GIANTS vs. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS BETTING PREDICTION
We’re just seven weeks into the 2022 season, and the Giants have already far surpassed the heights of their previous campaign, as the G-Men finished dead-last in the NFC East with a record of 4-13 last year, and now this season, New York enters Week 8 sitting 6-1. However, it hasn’t been pretty, as Daniel Jones and co. averaged just 21.4 PPG on 334 YPG across their first seven contests, which ranks 18th and 19th in the league respectively. But lackluster offensive play can be easily overshadowed when your defense also surrenders 20 PTS or less in five of those seven contests (18.6 PPG).
The Seahawks, on the other hand, posted a relatively pedestrian 4-3 record in their first seven contests, however, the last five weeks have been a thrilling ride, as Seattle averaged 31.8 PPG on 414 YPG across their latest 3-2 stretch, which typically bodes better in the win column, but unfortunately, their defense also allowed 28.6 PPG on 398 YPG during that timeframe, making it incredibly tough to win games.
I’ll take the under here, as the Seahawks have scored 32+ PTS on 395+ YDS in three of their last four games, however, in the first three weeks of the season, they averaged just 15.7 PPG on 296 YPG against a much tougher group of defenses. So, I think we’ll see them come back down to earth against a Giants’ squad that’s surrendered 20 PTS or less in five-of-seven contests to open the season.
Score Prediction: Giants 23, Seahawks 17
Best Bet: Under 44.5 (-110)

NEW YORK GIANTS BETTING ANALYSIS
The Giants finished last in the NFC East with a record of 4-13 last season, which tied the Jets for the third-worst mark in the league. Health issues were partly to blame for the Giants’ struggles, especially on the offensive side, as New York posted a modest 4-7 record through the first 12 weeks of the season. However, Jones’ season-ending neck injury immediately derailed their campaign, and they went 0-6 the rest of the way.
Giants’ RB Saquon Barkley has also dealt with a handful of injuries over the last few seasons, which really limited what this relatively shallow New York roster could do offensively. However, with Saquon back in action now, the G-Men currently rank second in the league in rushing at 173 YPG, and when you combine that with a defense that allows less than 20 PPG, almost every contest stays within reach.
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS BETTING ANALYSIS
The Seahawks have been one of the most exciting squads to watch in the first half of the season, as Seattle posted a surprisingly modest 4-3 stretch in the immediate aftermath of Russell Wilson’s departure, while scoring 23+ PTS in four of those contests and allowing 23+ PTS in five of them (26 OPPG, 27 DPPG).
However, even with so many points allowed on the defensive side, Seattle’s offensive numbers are still somewhat inflated by monster performances in Weeks 4, 5, and 7, as the Seahawks racked up 39 PPG on 452 YPG in matchups against relatively weak Lions, Saints and Chargers defensive units, compared to just 16.5 PPG on 296 YPG in matchups against slightly tougher Broncos, 49ers, Falcons, and Cardinals units.
