Pro Football Odds & Preview - Giants Seek Room To Move vs. Chargers

Pro Football Odds & Preview - Giants Seek Room To Move vs. Chargers The New York Giants have been trying to address their offensive problems all season. A couple of weeks ago they bid adieu to coordinator Jason Garrett and elevated Freddy Kitchens into play-calling duties. Nothing much has come of it, and as BetAnySports customers know, injuries are getting in the way.

Top Sportsbooks have starting quarterback Daniel Jones is out with a neck injury. And the Giants came dangerously close to having to start Jake Fromm, just off another team's practice squad and without any career pass attempts.

But backup Mike Glennon, who was in concussion protocol, has been cleared and is ready for action against the Los Angeles Chargers at SoFi Stadium, slated for a 4:05 PM ET start.

The Giants usually don't know on a week-to-week basis which receivers are going to be available. Well, here's the update - Kadarius Toney, with a quad injury, won't play.

He is potentially the most explosive guy they have. Kenny Golladay, who Kitchens and head coach Joe Judge want in the mix as much as possible, will play with a rib injury. And Sterling Shepard (also a quad) will play as well. In addition to that Saquon Barkley, who is suffering with a bad ankle, is going to be available, but he's not been a big contributor since returning to the lineup.

The Chargers had some questions with regard to their receivers as well. Keenan Allen, the Pro Bowler, is stuck in COVID protocol and can't get out. But Mike Williams, the other top wide receiver, has been cleared.

In the pro football odds that have been posted on this game by the good people at BetAnySports, the Chargers are laying points:

Los Angeles Chargers -9.5
New York Giants +9.5

Over 43 points -110
Under 43 points -110

Glennon, the tallest quarterback in the NFL at 6-foot-7, didn't produce a whole lot last week in the 20-9 loss to Miami. He went 23 of 44 for 187 yards, and if you are doing the math on that one, it comes out to 4.25 yards per attempt. But the Giants may have to live with him for a while in this, another lost season, as Jones appears to have structural damage to his neck.

As we alluded to before, Barkley has been a low-impact presence, averaging 3.8 yards per carry and 6.4 yards per reception. If he could carry the offense, it might be a different story, but he's given no indication that he can. Devontae Booker, who has shared touches with him, hasn't done much better.

That's unfortunate, because if there's a place the Chargers have shown themselves to be vulnerable, it's against opposing ground games, as they have allowed more yardage than all but one team. However, we must say that they have been improving a bit, as the last four opponents have combined for only 401 rushing yards. Joe Mixon of the Bengals, who had run wild the week before, managed just 54 yards on 19 carries in the Bolts' 41-22 win.

According to sportsbookpayperhead analysts, If there is a difference in this game, it might be the ability of Justin Herbert to get the ball far down the field. He is the top-rated quarterback in the NFL when it comes to throws more than 20 yards past the line of scrimmage. Yet he averages only 7.2 yards per intended target, which is way down the list of QB's (26th, in fact).

But we kind of like the "under" a little better. That's the way the Giants have gone in each of their last six games. They have scored only 26 points over their last three. So they will greatly "contribute" to where we are pointing.
