Lions vs Giants Best Bet

When two run-heavy offenses face off, it's always a safe bet to back the under. That's especially the case when the game is being played at MetLife Stadium. The total has hit the under in 15 of the Giants' last 17 home games. No New York home game has seen more than 44 points scored in 2022.

It's not hard to figure out why that trend has found its way to the forefront this season. The Giants are a team that prides themselves on time of possession and a lack of turnovers. It leads to a ton of lengthy drives for both teams involved in the game. Back more of the same to happen in Week 11.
