Giants vs. Chiefs Odds
Barkley and Golladay Out
The Giants are coming to Kansas City without their star running back, Saquon Barkley, and the wide receiver, Kenny Golladay. That is arguably the worst possible situation for Joe Judge, who has had headaches because of injuries since the season began.
The positive thing for the franchise from New York is that they won last Sunday, beating the Carolina Panthers at home, 25-3, and forcing the guests to bench their QB, Sam Darnold.
The Giants score 19.9 points per game, and record 91.7 rushing yards, which is terrible when you have Barkley. But his constant injuries and problems with recovery are not only bad for him, but the team as well. So it’s no wonder to see Jones being the top rusher in New York, with 229 yards.
Hot and Cold Chiefs
The AFC champs have subsequent wins and losses this year, and are highly unstable. After trashing the Washington Football Team on the road, 31-13, they were destroyed in Nashville against the Titans, who limited them to only three points. It was something we don’t remember that happened with Mahomes as the starter.
When mentioning Mahomes, the former NFL MVP is inconsistent as well, throwing 18 touchdowns which is the third-highest in the league, and nine interceptions, tied for the 32nd in the NFL. This is by far his worst season, and he already has more interceptions than in any of his previous campaigns as a starter.
The Chiefs’ defense allows 29 points per game which is unbelievable. Whoever plays against KC generates 414.6 yards from the scrimmage. Kansas’ big problem is rushing defense, with them allowing 128.9 yards. Luckily for the former champs, Giants’ main threat on the ground won’t be available.
Giants vs. Chiefs Head to Head
The franchise from the Big Apple is far more successful than the Chiefs and so far has 11 wins compared to KC’s only three. We’ve seen them meeting for the last time in 2017, and the Giants won at home, 12-9 following overtime.
Giants vs. Chiefs Prediction and Pick
Well, without Golladay and Barkley, the Giants are going to be massacred at the Arrowhead. That is the cruel truth, and we want to be straight with you right away. There is no way for Mahomes and the boys to waste such an easy chance to solve this rival and reach a .500 record. With all due respect towards the
Giants, they can’t run away from a defeat in this event.
