NFL Picks And Predictions Week 12: Giants Vs. Saints

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - NOVEMBER 20: Eli Manning #10 of the New York Giants walks off the field with his head down after he fumbled the ball late in the fourth quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles at MetLife Stadium on November 20, 2011 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The New Orleans Saints and New York Giants are having similar seasons, but analysts are nearly unanimous about this game, picking the Saints to win.

The New York Giants are 6-4, coming off of a couple of extremely close losses against good teams. Before those two straight losses, they defeated the New England Patriots. The New Orleans Saints are 7-3, and they suffered a bad loss against the St. Louis Rams two weeks ago. They needed overtime to beat the Atlanta Falcons in Week 11. Surely, NFL experts should be a bit divided about the outcome of this game, right?

Actually, not at all. NFL experts are nearly unanimous in their backing of the Saints in this game. Peter King doesn't like the Giants to keep it within one score, picking a 30-17 Saints win. Mike Freeman is the only analyst at CBS who likes the Giants, while every single one of ESPN's analysts picks the Saints. The Saints are 4-0 at home, but the unanimity of the selections is a bit surprising.
