Game 1: New York Giants (+3, +110) @ San Francisco 49ers, Monday 8:15 p.m. EST
In arguably the worst game of the NFL season so far, the 1-7 Giants go up against the 2-7 Niners, with both teams desperate for a win. The Giants, although on the road, have had a full two weeks to prepare for this game. Three points is generally seen as the home-field advantage in Vegas, so essentially they see these teams as equals.
The Giants stars like Odell Beckham and Saquon Barkley are fed up and are fully on board with the "win eight straight games and make the playoffs" option. While this isn't likely to happen, a Giants cover very well could tonight. Nick Mullens had a great game in his first start, but who knows if he'll be able to replicate it against the Giants. The Niners defense in fantasy ranks 21st against running backs and 19th against wide receivers. Take the G-men on extra rest, with the extra juice and the points.
Game 2: Golden State Warriors (-3.5, -110) @ Los Angeles Clippers, Monday 10:40 p.m. EST
The Warriors travel down the coastline tonight and will still be without star point guard Steph Curry, but will welcome back Draymond Green. The lack of Curry is what's driving this line down, but it seems to be too much. The Clippers have inflated value based on some moderate success early. Getting Draymond back is a huge step for the Warriors. It will allow Durant to focus more on the offensive end of the ball and pick up more of the slack left from missing Curry.
In Curry's absence, backup Quinn Cook has played well, averaging 18.3 PPG, 3.7 assists and 4 rebounds over his last three games, including a 27-point explosion against Brooklyn on Saturday.
Getting Draymond back will be a bigger boost to this team than the line is giving credit for. Lay the small number for the Warriors on the road.
