Lions vs Giants Predictions & Odds

Last Updated: Nov 17, 2022

This week, Daniel Jones and the New York Giants play host to the visiting Detroit Lions, led by Jared Goff. Both of these teams have been fairly up and down this year, despite the Giants sitting in second place with a 7-2 record, behind Philadelphia in the NFC East.

Detroit, on the other hand, is 3-6 after winning two games in a row. Last week they were underdogs to the Chicago Bears, where they won a thriller. Jeff Okudah picked off Justin Fields and ran it back for a touchdown as the Lions scored 21 points in the fourth quarter.

As for New York, they are coming off a win over the Texans and look to close the gap on the first-place Eagles, who just suffered their first loss of the season to the Commanders.

Lions vs Giants Odds

It’s not too surprising to see the Lions as road underdogs in this one as they’ve been streaky all season. The Giants, while they are 7-2, have been talked about as one of the “worst" good teams this year.

Take a look at the best Lions odds and Giants odds for the 2022 NFL season.

Lions vs Giants Prediction

Giants 27, Lions 17

Daniel Jones is averaging 177.3 passing yards per game this year and has just thrown eight touchdowns, with two interceptions. The Lions give up 164.8 rushing yards per game on the season, which is the third-most in the NFL. I’m expecting a big day out of Saquon Barkley and for Jones to get some work done with his feet.

The Giants average 20.8 points per game this year, which is 22nd in the league. As for the Lions, they average 24.3 points per game, ninth in the NFL. Furthermore, the Lions give up 29.3 points per game, which is the worst in the NFL.

This is all to say that the Lions should struggle a bit in the passing game on the road. After losing TJ Hockenson to the Vikings, they really just have Amon-Ra St. Brown and their two running backs to lean on in the passing game, which they both excel at.

Goff has been hit or miss this year and is inconsistent. The Giants defense and secondary should be just tough enough to keep the Lions passing attack in check.

I’m taking the home team to win by 10 in this one over the visiting Lions. Look for the Giants defense to give Goff plenty of trouble and potentially get a couple of takeaways in this one.

Lions vs Giants Best Bets

Giants -3 (-105) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

The Detroit Lions are dealing with a ton of injuries to their wide receivers. DJ Chark is on the injured reserve and Josh Reynolds is dealing with a back injury, making him questionable to play. St. Brown is really the only wide receiver to look for in this one, and the Giants secondary can focus on him.

Look for the Giants defense to step up and win this one by at least a field goal.

Under 46 Points (-110) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 0.5 Units

The defense is really where I’m expecting this total to go Under. The Giants defense is trending up and will shut down Goff and the passing game. Jones is not one to air it out and might not exactly light it up, but you can put up points on this Lions defense.

Look for the Giants defense and Barkley to run away with this one. Turnovers will be key for this Giants defense as they should be able to give Goff some problems. I’m expecting Barkley to crack 100+ rushing yards and find the end zone at least once.
