Washington Commanders vs New York Giants expert picks
We’ve got 2 standout NFL picks for this clash between the Commanders and Giants.
Giants vs Commanders point spread pick: Giants +2.5 (-110)
We’ve got a fascinating NFC East showdown as the New York Giants host the Washington Commanders. The Giants have had the better record all season but Washington is a road favorite, which tells you the market thinks the G-Men are overrated. While it’s true that New York was never anywhere near as good as a 7-2 record after 9 games suggested, the market may have now overcorrected after back-to-back losses. You can’t really blame the Giants for losing on the road to Dallas on Thanksgiving, and now they’ve had extra time to prepare and heal up a bit. Washington picked up another win last week, but didn’t look very good doing it. They squeaked by the Falcons at home, and only because Atlanta botched a play at the goal-line with less than a minute left.
Taylor Heinicke was held to just 138 yards in that one, and he had an ugly interception shortly before halftime. I love Heinicke as much as the next guy and he’s fun to root for, but he’s simply not that good. On the road against a Giants defense that is getting healthier, I expect him to struggle. Washington picked up an awesome upset win over the Eagles a few weeks back, but outside of that one game, look at the teams Heinicke has beaten: the Falcons, Texans, Colts (with Sam Ehlinger) and Packers. Not exactly a murderer’s row. And the Colts and Packers wins came by a combined 3 points. I’m grabbing the points with the home underdog.

Giants vs Commanders Over/Under totals pick: Under 40.5 (-110)
Taylor Heinicke has started 6 games in place of Carson Wentz this season, and he’s eclipsed 211 yards only once. That’s despite Washington playing a below-average slate of defenses during that stretch. Daniel Jones hasn’t exactly been lighting it up either, and the only time the Giants’ offense has looked good recently was against the lowly Texans. Even then they only put up 24 points, and 7 of those came on a pick-6 of Davis Mills, so it’s not like it was some massive offensive explosion.
In each of the past 2 weeks, they’ve done nothing at all when it’s mattered against the Cowboys and Lions. Both teams are going to look to run the ball a ton and win it with their defense. The Giants’ pass-catchers have been ravaged by injury, and Washington’s O-line is banged up.
