The New York Giants are in a four-way tie for the final playoff spot in the NFC, and with only two weeks remaining in the NFL regular season, both of their remaining games are crucial.
The Giants are favored by anywhere from one to three points this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens, who have already wrapped up a postseason spot. The game initially opened as a tossup, with New York gaining the edge as the week went on.
The total for a game that features two capable offenses sits at 47½, though both teams also can have trouble scoring. New York was shut out by the Falcons last week in a 34-0 laugher, while the Ravens have scored more than 20 just once in their last five games. Both teams have struggled against the spread lately. The Ravens are 0-3 ATS in their last three tries, and the Giants are just 2-4 ATS in their last six.
