Free Betting Pick: Washington Redskins -1.5
Washington has lost its starting and backup quarterbacks. Mark Sanchez is not the No. 1 signal caller for the Redskins. The Giants looked much better offensively in the win over the Bears and even used trickery at the goal line to score a late touchdown. Without any offensive leader on the Redskins, look for the Giants to win on the road. Final Score Prediction, New York Giants win and cover ATS 27-10.
