The Arizona Cardinals and New York Giants meet Sunday in NFL action at MetLife Stadium.
The Arizona Cardinals look for a third straight win to improve to 3-3-1 on the season. The Arizona Cardinals have lost six of their last eight road games. Kyler Murray is completing 64.3 percent of his passes for 1,664 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions. Murray enters this game with 238 career pass attempts. Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson have combined for 742 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Christian Kirk has 24 receptions. The Arizona Cardinals ground game is averaging 122.7 yards per contest, and Johnson leads the way with 298 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Arizona is allowing 25.8 points and 414 yards per game. Jordan Hicks leads the Arizona Cardinals with 6.2 tackles, Chandler Jones has 4.5 sacks and Byron Murphy has five pass deflections.
The New York Giants could use a victory here after splitting their last four games. The New York Giants have lost eight of their last 11 home games. Daniel Jones is completing 60.7 percent of his passes for 921 yards, five touchdowns and six interceptions. Jones enters this game with 140 career pass attempts under his belt. Evan Engram and Sterling Shepard have combined for 630 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Darius Slayton has 12 receptions. The New York Giants ground game is averaging 105.3 yards per contest, and Saquon Barkley leads the way with 237 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, New York is allowing 26.7 points and 412.3 yards per game. Antoine Bethea leads the New York Giants with 46 tackles, Markus Golden has five sacks and Janoris Jenkins has three interceptions.
The Cardinals are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games in October and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Giants are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in October and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Cardinals are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings in New York and the road team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Giants last 5 home games. The over is 5-2 in Cardinals last 7 games overall.
The Arizona Cardinals are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a road underdog. The New York Giants are 2-4-1 ATS in their last seven games as a home favorite. The Cardinals are playing better football given that they've won back-to-back games, while the Giants offense has produced just 24 points in their last two games and Jones is showing he's still a rookie. However, the Giants are at home, which has to count for something, and they are expected to see the return of Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley, two massive improvements to this offense. There's better games on Sunday's card, but I'll lay the field goal with the Giants if forced to pick.
