Why Washington can cover

It didn’t show in the season-opener, but Washington had the second-best defense in the NFL last season and allowed an average of 304.6 yards per contest. It permitted the Chargers to rack up 424 yards last Sunday, but should perform much better against New York’s softer offense. The Giants amassed only 314 total yards in their Week 1 home loss to Denver, with a mere 60 gained on the ground.

Washington kept the Chargers under 100 yards rushing (90) and managed to sack Justin Herbert twice, with Montez Sweat recording one. The 25-year-old Sweat led Washington with nine sacks last season after registering seven as a rookie in 2019. Dating back to last year, the 2019 first-round draft pick out of Mississippi State has notched a sack in four consecutive games and five of his last six, including Washington’s wild-card loss to Tampa Bay last postseason.

Why the Giants can cover

New York has eclipsed the 20-point plateau just once in its last seven games dating back to last season, but has had no trouble offensively in its last three trips to Washington. The Giants scored a total of 104 points in winning all three visits, reaching 40 on two occasions. Quarterback Daniel Jones had his most productive game to date at Washington in Week 16 of his 2019 rookie season, throwing for career-highs of 352 yards and five touchdowns.

Wide receiver Sterling Shepard hauled in one of those TD passes, a 23-yarder less than three minutes into New York’s 41-35 overtime victory. The 28-year-old receiver out of Oklahoma has 33 catches for 345 yards and three scores in seven career contests against Washington. Shepard has caught a touchdown pass in three consecutive games and reached triple-digit receiving yards in back-to-back outings after recording seven receptions for 113 yards and a TD against the Broncos on Sunday.

How to make Giants vs. Washington picks

Tierney is leaning under on the point total. He’s also isolated a critical x-factor that makes one side of the spread hit hard. You can only see what it is at SportsLine.

So who wins Washington vs. Giants on Thursday Night Football? And what critical X-factor makes one side of the spread a must-back? Visit SportsLine now to see Mike Tierney’s WFT vs. Giants pick and analysis, all from the NFL expert who’s on a 23-9 roll on Washington picks, and find out.
