ANALYSIS

New England Patriots vs. New York Giants Prediction: Can Daniel Jones and Tyrod Taylor Put Up Points?

August is the month where gamblers can show just how dedicated they are to their craft by one simple action; betting on the NFL Preseason. It's glorious and anyone who has ever done it will tell you that by Week 1 of the regular season, they're in midseason form. They've been in the trenches by then and it shows. Tonight we get an opportunity to get a little dirty as there are two NFL Preseason games. Obviously, it's not the real thing but its football, which is paramount to any objection anyone could give to betting the preseason.

That's just science. Lucky for us, we've got a matchup that is just screaming for a bet. It's at 7:00 pm ET too so we won't have to wait long to get our sweat on. All signs point to getting down on this thing. Don't fight it, just relax and embrace the experience only betting the NFL Preseason can provide.

New England Patriots vs. New York Giants Prediction

This one is at FanDuel but can also be bet at BetMGM. If you have to use DraftKings, that's fine too just know they are charging -115 for this action. That's not great but sometimes we have to do what we have to do. Speaking of doing what we have to do, BetMGM has an exotic worth looking at in the "Race to" market. Right now, both teams to score 10 or more in the first half is +350. I'm not sure if that is going to happen, but we should definitely be aware of this market going forward. It feels like it could be fun.

Here's the thing about the NFL Preseason. Nobody knows what's going to happen. The unknown is a cornerstone of having fun. Everyone knows that. For that reason alone, the over is completely in play on this game tonight. For starters, everyone thinks the Giants' and Patriots' offenses stink. Honestly, they do, but that's not how you bet preseason. It just doesn't work like that. Up is actually down and down is actually up in August. Nothing makes sense and the only thing that matters is finding the right over to take. I think this is the one for tonight (probably).

The first dead giveaway that this is an over move is the fact that the Patriots won't play any starters. They're mucking it up, people. Most see that as an under-move but that's just why the under mentality is dangerous. It can actually ruin lives. Under people see no starters as bad but it could lead to points. We can't have Daniel Jones and the Giants' offense going against starters if we want points so going against guys that likely won't even be in the NFL next month feels more manageable. Especially since Tyrod Taylor will be running things for a little while tonight. He's the best quarterback on the Giants' roster and I think he'll play a lot tonight.

With all that being said, the second half of preseason games is where it's at. We usually get to see quarterbacks that stuffed our pockets with cash while they were in college get some reps. Tonight is no different. Two words; Bailey Zappe. This kid just got done setting FBS single-season records at Western Kentucky. He can get things done. The best part is that nobody cares about the first game of the preseason so the governor may be off tonight. We're talking full throttle Zappe here people. This could be a four-touchdown fourth quarter when you consider Davis Webb should be in for the Giants at that point. Gambling history will never be the same after this one.
