GIANTS (-3) over Lions
We had been intrigued when this sport opened at what appeared to us to be an affordable worth. Given the Giants’ improved go rush, we’re not bought on the Lion “D” hanging robust for the complete sixty.
Jets (+3) over PATRIOTS
Jet enchancment clearly no fluke, particularly defensively … and we’re compelled to respect Gang Inexperienced’s tried-and-true defensive enchancment. Seize these factors.
