What to expect against the spread (ATS)?

I have the Giants finishing the season 7-9 this season. They have a tough schedule and I think they will be listed as underdogs in their first seven games and 10 out of their 16 games. I think this is a team that we can count on to cover the spread for us this year and I think they will go 10-6 against the spread.

Things to watch for:

Watch for this Giants team to be better than last season when they fell flat on their face, I know - injury bug. Let’s not forget all that bullshit that went on with the front office and Eli last year though. The Giants will be better but it will be another irrelevant season for them - they only have one winning season in the last five years. “Remember when we beat the Patriots though?”

Fantasy Outlook:


Eli Manning - It always seems like Eli is valuable before the season but it seems like as every season goes on, you can’t trust the guy. I am staying away from Eli this season and I’d suggest that you do too.


Odell Beckham Jr. - As long as he stays healthy, he’s easily a top 5 fantasy receiver this season.

You won’t see me targeting any other Giant receivers this year.


Saquon Barkley - Top 10 - did you see him in the SI body issue? This guy might be a rookie but I see him running all over defenses this season. 1st round pick.


Evan Engram - This guy makes for a solid option at TE and I find myself playing him a lot in my DFS lineups.
