These NFC East battles are typically hard-fought, low-scoring affairs and last season the two games between the Giants and the Washington Football Team averaged just 41 combined points. Add in a backup quarterback in Taylor Heinicke for injured Ryan Fitzpatrick and we might see even less wide open football which is why most of the best prop bets involve ‘unders’ this week.

All odds are from Parx Casino

1) Taylor Heinicke, under 22.5 completions, +104

Forget the playoff game against Tampa Bay in which Heinicke threw for 306 yards, because this isn’t a playoff game and the WFT isn’t forced to throw or lose big after being down big to Tom Brady in the second half.

This will be a low-scoring contest with a conservative offensive strategy featuring Antonio Gibson. Look at last week when Washington was in a close game with the Chargers; combined between Ryan Fitzpatrick and Heinicke they threw the ball just 21 times.

Heinicke played in 39-of-55 offensive plays (71%) and threw the ball 15 times. You are getting plus odds when the SIS data suggests the under should be a -166 favorite.

2) Devontae Booker, score TD, +375

The Giants are being very protective of running back Saquon Barkley, which should give an opportunity for Booker to shine. Barkley had only 10 rushing attempts last week and we are predicting just over 11 this time around, while Booker should accumulate more than seven touches with a 26% chance to score.

That translates to about +286. Here, we are getting +375.

3) Terry McLaurin, under 5.5 receptions, +103. SB -237

With fewer opportunities comes fewer chances for McLaurin to accumulate six receptions for the over. In fact, we are predicting just 6.6 targets and 4.5 receptions for 56 yards.

SIS makes him a -237 for under 5.5 receptions and the casino is offering +103. Take it.
