Here are Jack Green's five NFL tips to consider for Thursday night's Week 6 clash between the New York Giants and New England Patriots.
New England Patriots (-16.5)
The Patriots conceded the first touchdown of the game against the Washington Redskins last week but then scored 33 points without reply to win by 26.
New England are now 5-0 and have won four of their five games by a margin of at least 16 points.
They should cruise to another easy win against the Giants, who are 2-3 after losing 28-10 at home to the Minnesota Vikings last week.
New York Giants to score under 13 points
The Patriots have conceded just four touchdowns and 34 points all season, so it’s hard to see how the Giants will pass this mark in Foxboro on Thursday night.
With running backs Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman, wide receiver Sterling Shepard and tight end Evan Engram all dealing with injuries, New York just don’t have the weapons to cause the Pats any problems.
Sony Michel over 74.5 rushing yards
Michel hasn’t been very effective this season, averaging just 3.36 yards per carry, but he had his best game so far against the Redskins last week, gaining 91 yards on 16 rushes.
With the Patriots likely to take an early lead on Thursday night, the running back should again be afforded plenty of rushing opportunities.
The Giants have allowed 5.1 rushing yards per attempt – the joint-seventh most in the NFL – so Michel should manage to pass this mark.
Julian Edelman over 70.5 receiving yards
With Phillip Dorsett and Josh Gordon limited by injuries, Edelman is clearly the Patriots’ top receiving target.
The 33-year-old has been dealing with a chest injury of his own but still gained 110 yards against the Redskins last week and will almost certainly play on Thursday.
The Giants have allowed the second-most yards to receivers of any team, including 130 last week to the Vikings’ Adam Thielen who, like Edelman, typically lines up in the slot.
Golden Tate over 4.5 receptions
Tate caught three of six targets in his first game as a Giant last week, but will likely see the ball more on Thursday night with Shepard and Engram – who had 21 combined targets – out injured.
With the Giants likely to be behind early and forced to throw, quarterback Daniel Jones should have plenty of pass attempts, the bulk of which should go to Tate.
