The Giants look to keep their hopes alive of winning the NFC East title when they meet the Dolphins. New York has lost three straight, but Miami looks to have even more problems.
Miami has an interim coach at the helm and fired its offensive coordinator less than a week ago. The Dolphins have lost four of their past six games. Miami is 4-4 under interim coach Dan Campbell.
New York needs a win to stay abreast of Washington and Philadelphia in the NFC East, as all three are tied for first and Dallas is just a game back.
The Giants must take advantage of a weak Miami team, as their final three games – Carolina, Minnesota and Philadelphia – will be very tough.
New York has scored six non-offensive touchdowns during the season, which is tied for tops in the NFL.
Miami has a defensive backfield that leads the team in tackles, with five players that have eclipsed 100 tackles and 1 play just one tackle shy of 100 tackles.
Eli Manning will have to get rid of the ball quickly against the Miami defensive pass rush. Odell Beckham Jr., the Giant top wide receiver will be the key to this game. Beckham has had 100 plus yards receiving in the past five games and is playing as good or better than last season when he was the top offensive rookie in the league.
The Dolphins are No. 27 in the NFL in fourth quarter scoring averaging just of 5 points per game. They must score early or they are doomed. New York is not that strong in the fourth, but not as bad as the Dolphins.
The Giants fourth quarters have not been good either. Last week they entered the fourth quarter with a lead of 10 points but lost 23-20 in overtime to the New York Jets’
Latest Line: New York Giants vs Miami Dolphins
Favorite: New York -2, Over/Under: 46.5
New York is 5-7 straight up and 6-5 against the spread, while Miami is 5-7 SU and 4-8 ATS.
On the road, the Giants are 2-4 SU and 3-2 ATS, while Miami at home is 2-2 SU and 1-3 ATS.
Lean: A heavy lean on the Giants in this one, as Miami’s offense is poor with a new offensive coordinator. Manning will rip defensive secondary apart.
