The New York Giants have gotten off to a tremendous star to the 2010 NFL betting odds season and look as though they’ll run their win streak to 5 games in row this weekend against the 4-3 Seattle Seahawks.
The Sea chickens are one of the pleasant surprises of the young NFL season and have a .5 game lead in the up for grabs NFC West. Under first-year head coach Pete Carroll this team has done better than most pundits expected and gone 3-0 at home this year.
However, Seattle will face its toughest challenge of the season so far when the Giants come to town this weekend.
Kickoff for this Saturday matchup is set for 4:10 Eastern Time and SBG Global Sportsbook opened with the Giants as a 7-point favorite with an over/under total at 41.
Seattle has improved in every facet of the game this season with an infusion of young new talent from the draft and some key off season acquisitions. Mike Williams the discarded and unwanted WR who played for Carroll at USC has emerged as a top Comeback Player of the Year Candidate and has been a key to the team’s offensive production. Williams has 33 catches and 375 yards through 7 games and leads the team in receiving. But he’s been one of the lone bright spots for a Seattle offense that has struggled in the NFL gambling action.
The Seahawks are averaging just 17.6 ppg and against cut throat defense like the New York Giants that won’t get the job done.
The Seahawks defense has been capable, giving up just 20 ppg, but that’s been against mostly inferior competition and against well-balanced Giants attack (25 points per game, 388.7 total yards per game) it should be quite vulnerable.
The Giants are currently the best team in the NFC –by a wide margin- and seem to only get better with every game. The passing attack, led by QB Eli Manning, got off to a rough start with Manning throwing 6 INTs in his first 3 games but its seems on track now as does the running game.
The Giants are averaging 145.4 yards per game on the ground and if that isn’t enough to grind the Seattle defense into submission the offense also has 14 passing TDs on the year.
The Giants are simply too talented for decent Seahawks squad and they’ll get the Week 9 sports betting.
