MNF Betting Trends: Rams vs Giants


The New York Giants opened as a 3 point favorite at the market-setting Cris sportsbook and, according to Sports Insights’ NFL Betting Trends, is currently receiving 66% of all spread bets. This lop-sided betting percentage is one of the main reasons that the Giants have moved to a 7 point favorite at a majority of books.

The other factor weighing heavily on this line movement is the slew of injuries that have plagued the Rams, specifically on the offensive side of the ball. Stephen Jackson and Danny Amendola are both doubtful for the game while Sam Bradford will be playing with a bruised index finger. Of course, the Giants are not without injury as Pro-Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora will not play tonight, and the status of both Justin Tuck and Hakeem Nicks remain up in the air. Make sure to visit our injuries page as game time approaches for any key status changes.

A survey of the marketplace shows the lines ranging from as low as -6 (-115) at Phoenix to -8 (-105) at SIA. With lines available on either side of a key number, this exemplifies the importance of shopping for the best line possible. Two of yesterday’s games came within one or fewer points of the spread, proving once again how imperative it is to lay a wager on the best line available.
