Odds from DraftKings Sportsbook on Oct 21.

Jacksonville is a 3-point home favorite against the New York Giants, the first meeting of two since the Jaguars’ 20-15 victory as a three-point road underdog at the Met Life Stadium on Sept. 9, 2018. The Jaguars are 4-3 SU and 6-1 ATS in the seven previous meetings, although only two have come since 2010.

The Giants are 2-7 SU in their last nine on the road and 2-5 ATS in their last seven on the road. The total has been under in 13 of the Giants’ last 17 games. The Jaguars are 4-14 SU in its last 18 home games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 at home. The total has gone over in seven of the Jaguars’ last 10.

New York Giants Roll On

Giants running back Saquon Barkley leads the NFL with 771 yards from scrimmage (616 rushing, 155 receiving) and quarterback Daniel Jones has been a similarly strong dual-purpose performer to help the 6-1 Giants to their best start since 2009, when they won their first five before losing four in a row.

New York is coming in off a 24-20 victory over Baltimore when they overcame a 10-point deficit for the third time this season by forcing two turnovers by Ravens’ quarterback Lamar Jackson. Barkley scored the go-ahead touchdown on the second of his 1-yard scoring runs in the fourth quarter with 1:43 remaining, and rookie No. 1 draft choice Keyvon Thibodeaux’s sack that forced a fumble on the Ravers’ final possession.

The Giants have not overwhelmed, just won. They are 25th in the league total offense and 18th in scoring offense, and their blitzing, bend-but-not-break defense is 15th in the league, 28th against the rush. They have given up the eighth-fewest points, however, and have a plus-2 turnover differential.

The Giants and first-year coach Brian Daboll got a break in the opener, when Tennessee missed a potential game-winning 47-yard field goal on the final play of the game, but since Thibodeaux entered the lineup in Week 3 have given up only 20 points per game. It is fair to say they played a relatively weak schedule, with wins over Carolina, Chicago, and Green Bay (in London).

Jacksonville Looks To Bust Streak

The Jaguars four losses have come in one-score games, if you count a 29-21 loss to Philadelphia on Oct. 2, and they enter after a 34-27 loss at Indianapolis in which they led 27-26 with 2:44 remaining.

A quick look at second-year quarterback Trevor Lawrence’s numbers show a trend — Lawrence has five touchdown passes and no interceptions in the Jaguars’ two victories and four touchdown passes and four interceptions in their four losses. He also lost four fumbles in the loss to Philly. He was 20 of 22 passing for 163 yards and a touchdown and also rushed for two touchdowns in the rematch with the Colts, but the defense could not hold.

Jacksonville is in the top 11 in the NFL in both total offense and total defense and are ninth in scoring defense. The Jaguars had 243 rushing yards against the Colts, 86 from Travis Etienne. Etienne has 114 and 108 and yards from scrimmage the last two games.

New York Giants vs Jacksonville Injury Report

The Giants, who already have lost wide receiver Sterling Shepard for the season, will be without wide receivers Kenny Golladay (knee) and Kadarius Toney (hamstring). Toney has missed the last four; Golladay the last two. Linebacker Oshane Ximines (quadriceps) is out. Ximines has two of the Giants’ 13 sacks.

Jaguars wide receiver Jamal Agnew (knee) and cornerback Shaquil Griffin (back) are out. Wide receiver Marvin Jones (hamstring) is listed as questionable. Defensive tackle Foley Fatukasi is expected to return after missing the last two weeks.

New York Giants vs Jacksonville Jaguars Prediction

The Giants are finding ways to win while the Jaguars’ Lawrence has been inconsistent, two trends that are hard to ignore. The Giants are 4-0 SU as an underdog this season, and Daboll could join Bill Cowher as the only coaches in the Super Bowl era to win their first five as an underdog. The Jaguars are 2-10 SU and ATS in their last 12 as a favorite and have lost the last five in that spot. They have lost 18 straight against NFC teams.

The pick:  New York Giants +3 (-110), 1 unit

Season: 23-21 ATS (+11.1 units)
