NFL Point/Counterpoint: Packers vs Giants, NFL Free Picks
Last week That the Green Bay Packers were Invented by San Francisco 38-7.
Even though the NFL is referred to to week league, that’s two significant setbacks for Green Bay in their past three outings and they have the look of a club that could limp into the playoffs.
Even the New York Giants obtained the cover at Chicago with a fourth-quarter touchdown, after permitting the Bears 21 unanswered points of the
The Packers and Giants have played with each other since 1928 and confronted to the NFL championship five days by 1938 to 1962 (Green Bay won three occasions ). This mixture has met three times in the playoffs since 2008, with New York.
Although this season’s contest won’t have the same consequences before, like it, it will seem for Swinging and Doug Johnson.
The NFL odds have Aaron Rodgers along with the Pack as a 6.5-point road favorite, down a point in the opening lineup.
Doug Upstone: While my parents had instructed me to stay humble and not be full of yourself because difficulty could be lurking ahead, I need to admit enjoying building an 8-5 lead on my”pal” Swinging Johnson as Buffalo ran roughshod over Denver.
But, gloating isn’t my thing and I’ll let because as I’m very conscious, the losing series is right round the corner, others revel in their own success.
SwingerI know you will hammer me for backing Green Bay and while will most likely agree with you that Packers are as fortunate as they great, ” the New York football Giants don’t wag this puppy’s tail.
While Daniel Jones has 17 touchdowns, together with his interceptions (8) and fumbles (14), ” I don’t know if you noticed, but he has has a new nickname”Pillsbury”, to get all the turnovers he has made in his first year.
Please describe your rationale.
Swinging Johnson: Truth, the reduction of last week, Doug pained me. . .pained me, I tell you! Fun fact – In the Select 6 Contest in SBR of a week I moved 5-1 and could you guess which one of those six matches missing? C’mon, take you wild guess. Yeah, the Denver”Freakin” Broncos! Alright, well that was then and this is now, and here we see the lumber being laid by Doug on the road with a public favored. Yes, I’m making fun of you Doug since you sound like the strangest Joe Q. Public.
As for me, I am staying sharp and backing a home dog . The problem for the Packers is they’re neglecting to do the one thing you need to do so as to acquire at the NFL – score. That’s right, Green Bay is currently averaging 14 points a game plus they’re not really that good against the run.
Saquon Barkley will feast on this particular Packers’ run-stop device and if the Big Blue ground game will get rolling, it is going to take the speed and speed right out of the hands of the Packers, slow down the game and voila – you have acquired a New York cover at this . Oh Learned Certainly, tell me, where am I incorrect?
DU: Swinger, one of the finest attributes is your sense of humor. Kind of a mix between a few of those Italian mafia films where the boss claims to one of those minions,”You’re a funny man, you amuse me” and also the latest TV version of”Kids Say the Darndest Things”
Otherwise,”….when the Big Blue ground game has rolling”. A quick trip over to the NFL stats finds the Big Blue running game in the league in 21st. The fact they’re ahead of Miami and New England is noteworthy I figure, but hardly formidable.
Granted, I’m first to admit the Packers run defense is 26th, however against running teams they’ve been better. Besides, in case the defense of the Green Bay gets New York in 3rd and long on three distinct occasions, is a one in three chance that the one of these will lead to a fumble or pick.
The Green Bay offense is inconsistent, against good defenses. Even the G-Men are 28th in points allowed. When looking up yards allowed, your New Yorkers are one place ahead of the Pack at 27th, but here’s the difference. The Giants are 30th, the Packers have been 7th in yards each point allowed and factors will decide the result, I’d like my chances.
But you did make me laugh. Please, I would love some more of your comedic genius.
SJ: Speaking of comedy, did you hear Barry Gibb has fallen ill? Night Fever yeah, he’s got! Alright, this joke was a Tragedy, let’s move on.
Now getting back to the game available, my only concern is that Saquon Barkley has not been playing Saquon Barkley as of late. That could be due to a minor injury, bad play calling, or more than an offensive line that’s not blowing holes big enough to allow SB to run through.
Maybe all three but what I do know is that Daniel Jones torched the Jets for 3 TDs a few weeks ago and also has tossed 11 TD. The Giants’ pass defense will be statically better than the Packers’. What’s going to happen in this match is that Jones move the chains and will get his groove on and just when Green Bay begins jerking about the pass, youthful Barkley will probably be breaking up the run-stop unit of Green Bay.
The Giants might not even win the match but they will get the pay. Green Bay is better than they’ve been in years but that is Aaron Rodgers and they’re not a group to lay a touchdown on the street against anybody. I’m sticking with the home pup here however I defer to you for your thing.
DU: SwingerI understand once I start bringing out the tendencies for NFL picks you love, so that you are. The G-G-Men are about a 2-10 ATS rush playing in house and 1-8 ATS.
The Pack, on the flip side, is 9-2 ATS after a couple of losses. Frankly, if Green Bay was still at -7.5, I would probably pass, however, at that price, too good to pass up.
