The NFL Week 7 Betting Odds are against the Giants.

NFL Preseason Week 4 Odds: Giants at Patriots

Written by on August 29, 2017

For football fans, the NFL preseason is a necessary evil, albeit one that they would like to see reduced by a couple of games. The starters don’t really see any real playing time until Weeks 3 and 4, and the hope then is that they will all be able to escape without getting it by any type of meaningful injury. The defending champion New England Patriots were not able to avoid the injury bug, with WR Julian Edelman going down with a season-ending injury in Week 3 of the preseason. In addition, with all these things in mind, take a quick look at the updated betting lines for this preseason match that we have available at MyBookie.It is a massive blow to a team that is surely the favorite to repeat as champion, but the Patriots have proven in the past that they are able to overcome all sorts of adversity. The good news is that 40-year old Tom Brady looks to be as good as ever, as he was very impressive in his first NFL preseason start. The Giants are net up for the Patriots, and they too have had to deal with injuries to their star players, although certainly not to the extent of the Edelman situation. The Giants have been a thorn in the side of the Patriots, beating them in 2 of their last 3 regular season meetings. These two will hook up once again in the final week of the NFL preseason.

Expert NFL Preseason Pick and Final Score Prediction

Both teams are 1-2 in the NFL preseason, and will be looking to get back to .500 to close things out. I think the Patriots won this one and cover, and given that these two have been in high-scoring games this preseason, I believe the OVER will hit.NY Giants 20 New England Patriots 27
