3 Player Props to Bet for NY Giants vs. Washington Football Team
Thursday night, the NY Giants aim to pull to .500 on the season, during a clash with the NFC East champion Washington Football Team at FedExField
The NY Giants aim to avoid an 0-2 start to the season, and face a massive NFC East contest against the reigning division champion Washington Football Team on Thursday night.
Don’t be surprised if quarterback Daniel Jones leans on some of the Giants’ most consistent playmakers. Similarly, it’s difficult to envision a defense that allowed 10 combined third and fourth-down conversations having fixed its issues overnight.
WynnBet offers some interesting prop bets, to cash in on Thursday night’s game.
Here’s a look at three player prop bets for Thursday night’s NY Giants vs. Washington Football Team game:
NY Giants WR Darius Slayton to score a touchdown (+225)
Last week, against the Denver Broncos, was the Sterling Shepard show for the NY Giants offense, and while Shepard has emerged as Daniel Jones’ favorite target, there’s reason to believe Slayton could break out in Week 2.
In four games against Washington, Slayton has caught five catches for 60 yards and a touchdown. The NY Giants are unlikely to push the ball deep downfield, given how frequently the Football Team deploys two high safeties, but Slayton’s prowess after the catch and big-play ability give him a chance to find the end zone in Week 2.
Washington QB Taylor Heinicke passing yards (over 241.5)
Heinicke gets the start, in place of Ryan Fitzpatrick, and gets his shot at an NY Giants defense that allowed Teddy Bridgewater to systematically carve up the middle of the field all afternoon en-route to 264 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Keep in mind, K.J. Hamler also allowed a 55-yard touchdown pass to slip through his grasp, after breaking wide open over the Giants’ secondary.
Given the NY Giants’ inability to generate much of a pass-rush, and that Heinicke has playmakers Terry McLaurin, Antonio Gibson, and Logan Thomas at his disposal, and that he passed 122 yards in the second half last week, it seems like a safe bet that he’ll go for over 242 yards.
NY Giants QB Sterling Shepard receptions (over 5)
It has become obvious during Jones’ first two-plus seasons that Shepard is atop the young quarterback’s target hierarchy.
Last Sunday, Shepard caught seven of nine targets for 113 yards and a touchdown. Through the first 50 minutes of Sunday’s contest, high priced free agent acquisition Kenny Golladay had just one catch. Coming off a short week, don’t expect the passing game plan to be much different, and that should mean another heavy dose of Shepard for the Giants.
