New York Giants vs. Los Angeles Rams Same-Game Parlay
The New York Giants return home and play host to the Los Angeles Rams this week. After a road trip to Dallas that saw numerous players go down, their lineup is very much so in question this week especially quarterback, Daniel Jones.
The Rams are coming off a road win over Seattle to improve their record to 4-1 through the first five games of the year. The offense has slowed down a touch, just 46 points over the past two weeks but still, they’ve impressed early on this year.
I have a three-leg same-game parlay for you in this one, as the Rams with their extra rest head East to take on the Giants.
Leg 1: Rams race to 25 points
In their four wins this year, the Los Angeles Rams have cleared the 25 point number every time. The one time they didn’t was in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals who have one of the better defenses in the NFL. Unfortunately, the Giants don’t have that same luxury.
New York ranks 26th in points for and 29th in yards against while ranking 22nd in passing yards and 21st in passing touchdowns allowed. In translation, Sean McVay and Matthew Stafford are going to throw the ball a ton against this defense.
If the Giants are forced to start Mike Glennon in place of the concussed Daniel Jones, this one can get out of hand and get out of hand quickly. I like the road team a lot this week.
Leg 2: Giants over 9.5 points
It’s scary that I’m sweating this number putting it in. Here’s a list of players who showed up on the injury report for the Giants offense: Saquon Barkley, Kenny Golladay, Daniel Jones, Andrew Thomas, Sterling Shepherd, Darius Slayton, Kadarius Toney. That’s basically the entire offense!
I sure as heck hope they can get to 10 points but man, this might be the most difficult leg of the three to get to. If it makes you feel any better the Rams haven’t held a team to under 10 this year and the Giants still somehow scored 20 points in that sloppy game against Dallas.
Leg 3: Rams -9.5
I’m genuinely not sure how the Giants keep this one close, honestly. With the number of injuries piled up and the state of the Rams offense who averages 6.7 yards per play which is first in the NFL, this has blowout potential written all over it.
The Rams are 3-2 against the spread this year and are 14-11 as a road favorite in the Sean McVay era. Plus, if you want ever more numbers to ease your tensions with this play they are 9-4-1 for a 69.2 cover percentage when they have the rest advantage.
Don’t let the big number scare you, don’t let the west coast team traveling to the east coast scare you. Don’t overthink this one.
