Washington Football Team-4

That number opened in Washington-4 and has since fallen. On Monday, it fell to Washington -3.5 and as low as -3 on Wednesday, but has since been returned half a point, giving Ron Rivera's club a plus-field goal advantage.

Pick: Giants +3.5. I would like Washington to continue and win this game, but it will be from a field goal, which means you have to work fast to get the spread on this number before it potentially goes to -3. Fall down New York is 8-5 ATS when they are at least a 3-point underdog. The Giants teams, led by Joe Judge, are also 3-0 ATS with less than six days of rest. Daniel Jones has historically played well against Washington as well, completing 68.2% of his passes against this division rival with eight touchdown passes compared to just three total interceptions.

Main trend: Road team is 5-1 ATS in their last six meetings

over/under total

There's also a drop overall for this NFC East head to head. It opened at 41.5 and dropped a full point to 40.5, which is currently the lowest total on the Week 2 slate.

Pick: Under 40.5. Under seems like the smartest game here, even if it's so short. Both offenses haven't shown much explosiveness, especially with Washington turning to backup quarterback in Taylor Heinicke and the Giants still bringing Saxon Barkley back into their backfield. Meanwhile, Washington's defense is actually enough to limit New York's scoring potential if it can apply enough pressure to Jones.

Main trend: less than 20-8 in their last 28 meetings

Passing Touchdown: 1.5 (Over +155, Under-190)

Passing Yards: 237.5 (Over-115, Under-115)

Rushing yards: 20.5 (over-115, under-115)

Pass Attempts: 34.5 (Overs-105, Under-125)

Completion: 20.5 (greater than -120, less than -110)

Longest pass completed: 35.5 (over-120, under-110)

Intercept: 0.5 (greater than -150, less than +120)

This is anticipated to be a very low scoring game, which leads me to a 237.5 (-115) total on the passing yards of Under on Jones. While he was able to pass 267 yards last week, Jones exceeded his passing yards a total of four times in his 16 matches played last season. If we're looking for a Jones prop that has the ability to go over, I like his 20.5 running yard mark. He logged 27 last week and has six Carey vs. Denver. He could run again as Washington claims a solid pass rush and New York can continue to limit Barkley's touch.

Passing Touchdown: 1.5 (Over +110, Under-140)

Passing Yards: 250.5 (Over-115, Under-115)

Rushing yards: 21.5 (over-120, under-110)

Pass Attempts: 34.5 (Overs-105, Under-125)

Completion: 22.5 (greater than -130, less than +100)

Longest pass completed: 34.5 (over-120, under-110)

Intercept: 0.5 (greater than -140, less than +110)

We're going to Heinke's passing yards prop of 250.5 (-115). While his playing career is undoubtedly a small sample size, he has only passed this total twice, going back to passing it honorably 53 and 44 times. Thursday won't have that level of passing chances for him.

props for player consideration

Logan Thomas Total received yards: 46.5 (-120) over. All three of Thomas's goals came from Henki. In a limited amount of time during Week 1, the duo drove a total of 30 yards through the air, including an 11-yard touchdown. Heinicke has shown an affinity for throwing Thomas the way and will now face a Giants team that allowed the Broncos six catches in the opener for a total of 62 yards from Noah Fant.

Darius Slayton Total reception: over 2.5 (-150). Slayton crossed the total last week, but what amazes me is the seven goals he hit from Jones (the second-highest on the team). If this continues in the game where New York are expected to be behind, Slayton should have plenty of chances to hit this over.
