The 2022 NFL season continues to roll right along as we are already into Week 10 matchups. It will be the New York Giants hosting the Houston Texans in one of these games, and this will provide a pretty solid betting opportunity.
Houston comes into this game with an overall record of just 1-6-1 on the year, and the Texans were not expected to be a great team. The Texans are also dealing with a number of injuries to some key players, and that will impact this matchup.
New York has been a major surprise this season, as they have won six of their first eight games. The Giants were off in Week 9, and that bye week should allow them to get some healthy players back for this matchup.
The New York Giants are five-point betting favorites over the Houston Texans in this NFL Week 10 matchup. Let’s take a closer look at both teams so you can bet against their NFL Odds.
NFL Week 10 Lines & Analysis for Houston Texans at New York
Houston Struggling to Score
The Houston Texans are scoring less than 17 points per game this season, and that’s just not going to get the job done on a nightly basis. Houston is barely over 300 yards of total offense per game, and that lack of offense is putting too much pressure on the defense.
Quarterback Davis Mills is having a solid season for the Texans, but he still makes too many mistakes in the passing game. Running back Dameon Pierce has rushed for 678 yards through eight games, but the Giants will be loading up to stop him.
Houston has been able to slow games down up to this point, and Lovie Smith’s defense will do some things to frustrate New York.
Giants Getting Great Defense
The New York Giants are holding opponents to less than 20 points per game this season, and that unit is a big reason for the great start. New York will give up some big plays at times, but that defense has been able to tighten things up in the red zone.
Saquon Barkley has rushed for nearly 100 yards per game to begin the season, and he has also found the end zone five times. Quarterback Daniel Jones continues to battle through some injuries, but he has been solid when he is on the field.
New York is not a team that is going to overwhelm opponents, but they have enough talent to score when needed.
Giants Roll to a Blowout Win
Houston has been competitive against some of the best teams in the league this season, but they also struggle to win games. The Texans just don’t have enough firepower on offense to really be considered a great team, and New York will take advantage in this one.
Saquon Barkley is having a huge season for the Giants, and he should find some big holes to run through in this matchup. New York should also be fresh and ready to roll after a bye week, and they will have a terrific performance in this game.
Bet the New York Giants -5.0 as they have little trouble in getting past the Houston Texans in this Week 10 showdown.
