Over history, and over the past decade, the New York Giants and New Orleans Saints have traded victories. The rivalry currently stands at 16-14 Giants. Since 2012, the two teams have met four times, and each won twice, alternating victories.

The pattern suggests it’s the Giants’ turn to win. Oddsmakers believe otherwise. The Saints are 7.5-point home favorites this Sunday at NFL betting sites.

The Giants have lost five in a row at New Orleans. Their last win there was in 1993. The bad news for New York is that this is the first true home game for the Saints, so it figures to be a fired-up bunch that they’ll be facing, playing in front of their own fans for the first time since January 2020. The Saints were briefly evicted from the Caesars Superdome due to Hurricane Ida.

Giants vs Saints Key Matchups

Keeping Up With The Joneses: Last week, the Saints defense put the clamps on New England Patriots rookie quarterback Mac Jones. This week, they’ll seek to do the same to Giants QB Daniel Jones. They’ll find that Jones is often willing to help a defense with that task. You’ll count through 22 starting QBs before landing on his passer rating of 94.3. Butterfingers Jones has already fumbled three times, bringing his career total in 30 NFL games to 32 fumbles.

Jameis vs Jameis: Saints QB Jameis Winston is the ultimate Jekyll-Hyde player. When he’s on, he’s fantastic. When he’s not, it should be R-rated. In New Orleans’ two wins, Winston shows a passer rating of 120.8. He’s thrown for 7 TDs against 0 interceptions. In the Saints lone loss, Winston’s passer rating was 26.7. He had 0 TD passes and was picked off twice. Which Jameis shows up will gone a long way toward determining the outcome.

Judgement Day: Including preseason, the Giants have lost six in a row. They are 0-2 at home, with losses to the Broncos and Falcons, not exactly NFL powerhouses. Could head coach Joe Judge be on the hot seat? FanDuel is offering odds on the Giants going 0-17. Judge is the second in the betting odds to be the first NFL coach fired. A lopsided loss to the Saints could make him No. 1 with a bullet.

Giants vs Saints Point Spread

Meanwhile, the Saints are 7-12 ATS in their last 19 games when laying 7.5 or more points. New Orleans was just 5-4 as a home favorite ATS last season.
