With the New York Giants traveling to Foxborough to take on the undefeated New England Patriots, tonight's "Thursday Night Football" game looks like a bit of a mismatch.

Playing without star running back Saquon Barkley in Week 5, the Giants lost to the Vikings, 28-10, and New York will likely be without a few other playmakers for Thursday night's contest, with Evan Engram, Sterling Shepard and Wayne Gallman all looking doubtful to play. On the other hand, the Patriots have outscored their opponents, 155-34, and are favored by 16.5 points, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

If you're looking to place a wager on this game, it's always wise to read up on what some industry experts have to say first. With that in mind, here are expert predictions for the Week 6 "Thursday Night Football" game between the Giants and Patriots.
