9* Sunday NFL CAR/NYG
NY Giants vs. Carolina,
09/22/2013 13:00 EDT,
Score: 0 - 38
Point Spread: +1/-104 NY Giants
New York Giants +1
The Carolina Panthers host the New York Giants on Sunday afternoon in Week 3 of the NFL season. Carolina is coming off a 24-23 loss to Buffalo, while New York dropped their Week 2 contest to Denver, 41-23.
Carolina must be emotionally drained after last week’s barn-burner against Buffalo. The team simply did not have the defensive chops to hold off the Bills down that stretch, and that’s what did them in.
That poses a huge problem for the Panthers this week, as they’ll have to find a way to contain New York’s talented trio of receivers – Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, and Rueben Randle.
David Wilson should also find success on the ground against a bad Carolina rush defense. Andre Brown had a ton of success against them last season in his first career start, racking up 113 yards and a pair of scores on 20 carries.
Even with a depleted group of skill players in last season’s meeting, the Giants found a way to demolish the Panthers, 36-7.
This season the Giants come to Carolina desperate for a win. With their backs against the wall, expect them to come out punching.
The Giants are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between these teams.
Take New York.
