Almost all of the NFL experts are picking the New York Giants to win their game on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
CBSSports.com had seven of their eight NFL experts pick the Giants as straight-up winners against the Saints. Only Jason La Canfora predicted that New Orleans will travel to MetLife Stadium and walk away with a win. Most of their experts are expecting the game to remain competitive, as only Pete Prisco and Dave Richard predict that the Giants will cover the spread.
Barbara Bruno from the Huffington Post also expects the Giants to win on Sunday. Bruno also believes that New York will cover the spread, predicting the Giants to win by seven.
Joel Thorman from Arrowhead Pride and SBNation.com also predicts a Giants victory. Thorman is tentative about his pick, since both teams are struggling and have played incosistently this season, writing:
The Giants are in a bit of a tailspin here, losing three of their last four. Yeah, they beat the Packers, but they were also blown out by the Bengals and beat by the Redskins on Monday night. I don't know which team will show up. The Saints have two straight losses to two of the league's best teams. They, too, are a bit of an unknown, as they've been up and down this season. New Orleans' seven turnovers in the last two games are worrisome. New York can beat them if they do that.
Joel has the Giants winning 31-27, picking them to win straight-up but not cover the spread.
