NFL Week 14 Betting: New Orleans Saints @ New York Giants Pick and Prediction

In a battle of two NFC traditional powerhouses, the New Orleans Saints will take on the New York Giants. The Saints are in a do-or-die mode, as they are two games back in the wildcard chase with four to go. New Orleans is 5-7, but have lost their last two games to the 49ers and Falcons. The Giants come in needing a win as well. After losing to the Redskins last week, they found themselves only a game ahead of Washington and Dallas in the NFC East. New York is the defending Super Bowl Champion.

The New York Giants are led by Eli Manning. The Giants have gone how Eli has gone this season. New York settled for three field goals in the Monday Night loss to the Redskins. New York is throwing for nearly 260 yards per game, and have improved on their run game, with over 114 yards per game. Ahmad Bradshaw has over 800 rushing yards, but Andre Brown leads the team with 8 touchdowns. Victor Cruz also has 8 touchdown receptions for New York.

After climbing back to .500, the Saints have dropped two straight games. Last week, New Orleans could not come up with the big score to over take the Falcons. The Saints are passing for just shy of 300 yards per game. Drew Breese has completed 300 passes, for more than 3,600 yards and 36 touchdowns. The Saints run game has struggled this season, with Pierre Thomas rushing for just one touchdown. New Orleans has allowed 30+ points in four of their seven losses this season.

This should be quite a dandy between two teams hungry for a win. Both of these teams can score a bunch of points. The difference between the two is the Giants have been able to stop opponents and the Saints have not. Drew Brees has found himself frustrated several times this season. Look for this to be one of those times, as the Giants force him to turn it over a couple of times. In the end, the Giants win the game.

Prediction: New York Giants 28-21

The line for this game has the Giants as the favorite over the Saints. Home field advantage has a lot to do with that, as does the Giants being Super Bowl Champions – they are not ready to give up their throne yet. A win for New York will take them a long way in getting back to postseason. In the end, the Giants cover the spread of -4.5.

Pick: New York Giants -4.5
