Packers - 7 vs New York Giants
View all NFLpredict's tips »
This tip comes from NFL game between Green Bay Packers v New York Giants.
No team around at the minute can stop the Green Bay Packers, having not lost a game and sitting very high at the top of their division and favourites by a fair margin for the superbowl.
The reason for this is not only their truly amazing quarterback Aaron Rodgers but also its their defence, truly magnificent and a nightmare for all teams they come up against.
Now Mike McCarthy's team always put on a show, and I would go for the over on the points on this one, but after watching the giants on monday, and the points been over 52.5, I think I will pass on that as I think it will be the Packers scoring most of the points.
So we have Gregg Jennings out with injury and the destroyer Clay Matthews also, but that still does not sway me from thinking packers to win by a good 15 to 20 points easy. You only have to look at the giants v saints game to give you this prediction.
Green bay average 34.5 points per game, but always win by a good 10 to 15, because again defence so strong, and with the giants coming off the back of such tough opposition against the saints I can see this been the case.
Jordy Nelson expected to start and with 9 touchdowns already this season I will be expecting him to be way into double figures come monday morning.
If we look at the Giants.
Like i said, they lost against the Saints on monday, and by 25 points, coming off the back of a loss against the Eagles (10-17) and the 49ers (20-27), the past few weeks have not exactly been plain sailing for them.
If they are losing by 7 points to teams like the Eagles and the 49ers what damage will green bay do?
They do have a good team, with Eli Manning throwing and Victor Cruz receiving but that combination is not enough when it comes to the big guns.
Injuries have affected the giants also, with Micheal Boley confirmed as out for his 2nd straight game and Bradshaw and Martin both expected to be sidelined.
The Giants last 5 games have resulted in 3 losses 2 wins, and even though they are 2nd in their division they do have a negative net points score.
They are also second behind the Cowboys who they face the sunday after the Packers so I will expect that deficit to increase, as well as their injury list against the solid defence of the Packers.
I think we are safe with the -7 Packers on this one, and wouldnt be surprised if it drifts to -8 or -9 come sunday.
