The New Orleans Saints will host the New York Giants this Sunday from the Caesars Superdome on FOX. New Orleans comes in as 5.5-point favorites, with the total currently sitting at 39. Stay tuned for our Giants vs Saints prediction.

New York Giants Preview

New York moved to 5-8 after defeating Green Bay at home, 24-22. The Giants stole one from the Packers in primetime, and they’ll look to pin a fourth straight win on Sunday. The NYG offense is scoring 14.1 ppg, while passing for 180.2 ypg, rushing for 114.9 ypg, and converting 30.9% of their third downs.

Giants Player Props

  • Tommy DeVito played well against the Packers, going 17/21 for 158 yards and a score, with 71 yards rushing. The former Syracuse QB has brought life to the New York locker room, and he’ll attempt to keep the magic going this weekend in the Superdome. DeVito has passed for 855 yards, with eight touchdowns to three interceptions thru six games this season. 
  • Saquon Barkley scored twice in the win over Green Bay, and he leads New York in rushing with 783 yards on 185 touches, and he’s caught 31 passes.
  • Darius Slayton leads NYG with 449 receiving yards on 34 catches. 
  • The New York defense is allowing 24.2points per game.   

New Orleans Saints Preview

New Orleans moved to 6-7 after defeating Carolina at home, 28-6. The Saints put together their best two-way effort of the season en route to the divisional victory, and they’ll attempt to get back to .500 here. The NO offense is scoring 21.9 ppg, while passing for 247.4 ypg, rushing for 104.5 ypg, and converting 37.5% of their third downs.

Saints Player Props

  • Derek Carr managed last week’s contest well, tossing a pair of touchdowns while leading the Saints to a victory. The former Raiders QB hasn’t pushed the needle much in year one with New Orleans, but a late-season push is all they need to secure a home playoff game, and he’ll look to deliver on his end Sunday. Carr has passed for 2,880  yards, with 13 touchdowns to seven interceptions for the season. 
  • Alvin Kamara has scored three times in the last two contests, and he leads the Saints in rushing yards (564), with 63 receptions for 402 yards receiving.
  • Chris Olave leads NO in receiving with splits of 72/918/4, but he’s questionable with an ankle injury for this matchup. 
  • The New Orleans defense is allowing 20.1 points per game.   

New York vs New Orleans Trends

  • NYG is 5-7-1 against the spread, with a 4-9 O/U record. 
  • NO is 3-9-1 ATS, with a 4-9 over/under record.

Giants vs Saints Prediction

New Orleans naturally looked great on the defensive side of the ball last week, and with a division crown somehow still in place, this home spot with the New York will be a must win game at this point in the season. The NFC South winner will receive a home playoff game, and anything can happen in the Superdome, so looked for the Saints to find a way to win this game. The Giants recent form makes it worth tilting the margin here, but back New Orleans confidently to win this contest.
