Cardinals Giants Key Injuries
CardinalsThe Cardinals are not dealing with any new significant injuries.
GiantsGiants QB Daniel Jones missed last week’s upset win over the Seahawks win a hamstring injury suffered in Week 12’s victory over the Bengals. However, while Jones was limited in Wednesday’s practice, he is expected to play on Sunday against the Cardinals, barring any setbacks. If by any chance Jones is ruled out, Colt McCoy will draw his second straight start. In the Seattle win, McCoy game-managed 13-of-22 attempts for 105 yards with one touchdown and a pick.
Cardinals Giants Players to WatchCardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins is an elite receiver. However, since Week 9, following Arizona’s Week 8 bye, Hopkins has been anything but. In four of his past five games, Hopkins had fewer than 13 targets, eight receptions, and 55 yards with two total scores. However, Hopkins 13 targets were the outlier. In those four games in which Hopkins failed to pop, he saw fewer than eight targets and five receptions three times. Hopkins could be in line for another down outing on Sunday facing the Giants, whose defense is severely underrated. Look for Hopkins to get James Bradberry in coverage, a tough WR/CB matchup. Bradberry is Pro Football Focus’ 10th ranked cornerback on 795 snaps. Bradberry has only allowed three touchdowns this season with four interceptions. Giants RB Wayne Gallman continues to shine sans Saquon Barkley and Devonta Freeman. While Gallman failed to score in last week’s win over Seattle, snapping a five-game streak with at least one touchdown, he did total 135 yards, a new career-high. Gallman has had at least 91 total yards in back-to-back games, the best stretch of his career. Gallman is not the only Giants running back to worry about. Alfred Morris has reemerged with the Giants acting as the team’s change-of-pace back. In four of five games since Week 8, Morris had at least eight touches for 28 yards. What you’d expect for his role. However, in two of those games, he’s had 71 total yards or two touchdowns. That two-score outing came in last week’s win. Gallman is the guy in the New York backfield and will look to keep his good fortunes rolling on Sunday facing a Cardinals defense allowing the 11th most rushing yards per game (123.0).
Cardinals Giants Weather ReportThe weather at MetLife Stadium calls for possible drizzle at the time of kickoff with a 35% chance of precipitation. The temperature is forecast at 56 degrees Fahrenheit with 9 mph winds blowing SouthWest.
Cardinals Giants Bet Tips
BEST BET: Under 45 (-110)We know the Cardinals can hang points on the best of them, but I don’t see it in this game. The Giants will slow down the pace of the game by running the football, which will keep Arizona’s Kyler Murray-led offense off the field. The Giants are 16th in team run plays per game (26.8). While they are middle of the pack, it shows they run a balanced attack. In a game like this, balance matters. Whether it is Daniel Jones or Colt McCoy under center, the Giants are fully aware they can’t go toe-to-toe with the Cardinals’ offense in a shootout, which suggests they will indeed play keep-away. This also favors the Under. In 2-of-3 games in which the Cardinals traveled to the East coast, they scored fewer than 21 points twice (Carolina, New England), hanging 30 on the Jets. The Under is 6-4 in the Cardinals’ past 10 games, but 2-4 in their past six. The Under is 7-3 in the Giants’ last 10 games, but 6-1 in their past seven, including four straight.

CONSIDER: Giants (+110)While the Cardinals have opened the year strong, they have cooled down of late. The Cardinals went 5-7 in their first seven games, but 1-4 in their past vie, losers of three straight. Meanwhile, the Giants are going in the opposite direction. They opened the season 1-7 in their first eight games, but have won each of their past four. While the Giants’ offense is doing okay since the emergence of Wayne Gallman and Daniel Jones somewhat finding his groove, the New York defense has been outstanding. The Giants’ defense is 10th in fewest total yards allowed per game (339.0) and ninth in fewest points allowed per game (22.1). They also have studs at all three levels of their defense. James Bradberry in their defensive backfield, Blake Martinez at linebacker, and Leonard Williams upfront. Martinez is on the injury report with a back injury, but as of now, there are no reports suggesting he will sit. While the Cardinals offense employs the firepower to pop against anyone, the way to beat them is containing Kyler Murray and not letting him beat you with his legs. Amidst the Cardinals’ three-game losing streak, Murray has been held to fewer than 31 rushing yards without a touchdown. In the nine games preceding Arizona’s three-game slide, Murray went for at least 78 rushing yards or a touchdown in all nine outings. In fact, Murray scored at least one time in eight of those nine games. Murray also had at least 61 rushing yards in seven of those nine. If the Giants can make the Cardinals’ offense one-dimensional and put it all on Murray, they will win this game at home. The Cardinals are 4-2 straight up in their past six meetings with the Giants, victorious in three straight.
PASS: Giants +1.5 (-105)You can take the Giants getting the points, but I would just take the Moneyline if you think they will win outright. Sure, the 1.5-point spread protects your money if the Cardinals ultimately win by a point, which could happen, but you are sacrificing (+110) Moneyline odds going this direction. The Cardinals have failed to cover the spread in each of their past five games. The Giants have covered the spread in five of their past six games. They are also 7-3 against the spread in their past 10 games overall. The Cardinals are 4-2 ATS in the past six meetings with the Giants, covering in three straight.
