Week 13 of the 2022 NFL season includes an NFC East collision between the Washington Commanders and New York Giants. The Commanders are pushing for a playoff spot, having won their third game in a row with a 19-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the Giants can feel the ground collapsing around them. After a promising 6-1 start, Brian Daboll's squad is now 1-3 over their last four games. Only time will tell if New York has what it takes to get back on track after falling to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day.

Commanders vs Giants Prediction & Pick

The Commanders have been one of the best teams since Week 6, winning six of their last seven games since then. Their defense has been a deciding factor in most of those victories, holding their last seven opponents to 15.4 points per game — third-best in the NFL over that stretch.

Meanwhile, the Giants' offense has struggled lately, mainly due to injuries decimating the offensive line and wide receiver room. Now, QB Daniel Jones just doesn't have enough time to make plays or have anybody to pass to. Sure, there's Saquon Barkley in the backfield, but he's only averaging 3.3 rushing yards on his last 81 carries due to the offensive line's decline.

I expect Washington to take advantage of New York's injury woes, resulting in another defense-fueled victory for the Commanders.

Final Score Prediction: Commanders: 21 | Giants: 17

Commanders vs Giants Betting Trends

- Washington is 6-0-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last seven games.

- The total has hit the under in each of the Giants' last five home games against Washington.

Commanders vs Giants Best Bet

All signs suggest points will be hard to come by in this divisional affair. First of all, both defenses involved rank in the upper half of the NFL, with the Commanders' unit coming in at No. 10. Secondly, the total has hit the under in four of Washington's first six road games while also doing the same in four of New York's six home outings.

Lastly, the total has gone under in each of the last five Commanders-Giants games played at MetLife stadium. With the average score of those games being just 31.2 points, expect another low-scoring defensive struggle.

Bet: Under 40.5 Points (-110)
