Odds: Panthers -3, O/U 43
This spread has held firm at Carolina -3 throughout the week. The Panthers enter Week 7 3-3 ATS while the Giants are 2-4 ATS.
The pick: Panthers -3. As much as the Panthers have struggled over the last few weeks, I have a hard time rolling the dice with New York even if they are at home. The Giants offense has a number of key players injured, leavingwith the task of having to pull a rabbit out of his hat to pull off the win. Yes, Carolina's defense has come back down the earth, but this could be a solid get-right opportunity as they'll likely go against second and third stringers at the skill positions. The Giants are also 3-7 ATS over their last 10 games overall and 6-20-1 ATS in the last 27 games at home.
Report: Chiefs, 49ers, Panthers, Saints made 'preliminary inquiries' on Marlon Mack
The trade market is reportedly intensifying for Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack. © Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Indianapolis C Per CBS Sports' Josina Anderson, there are a handful of notable NFL teams that have recently looked into potentially trading for the former 1,000-yard rusher. I'm told the #Chiefs, #Panthers, #49ers &/t #Saints are among teams that made preliminary inquiries for #Colts RB Marlon Mack over the last few weeks.
Key trend: Panthers are 8-1 ATS in their last nine road games.
The total has come down a bit as the week has gone on, which is likely due to the long list of skill position players still injured for New York. After opening at 44.5, this number dropped to 43 by Wednesday and has held at that spot throughout the later part of the week and heading into the weekend.
The pick: Over 43. Both of these defenses have struggled over the last three weeks of the season with the Giants allowing a league-worst 38 points per game over that stretch while Carolina is giving up 30.3 per game. That could open the door for both of these offenses to find success, despite ranking in the bottom half of the league in yards per play.
Key trend: Over is 3-0-1 in the Giants last four games as an underdog.
Player props to consider
total passing touchdowns: Over 1.5 (+105). He has only gone over this prop twice this season, but the Giants are allowing 2.3 passing touchdowns per game this season, which ranks 29th in the NFL. Meanwhile, their 2.7 passing touchdowns allowed at home ranks 31st in the league.
total rushing yards: Over 74.5 (-115). There's risk here because Hubbard has only gone over this total once in his three games since taking over for , but the Giants are allowing 137.2 rushing yards per game this season (29th in the NFL).
