People can’t wait for the New York Giants and Tennessee Titans to take the field on Sunday. With Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley and Co. hoping to pull off an upset, there’s going to be loads of pressure on the offense to step up and hang close with Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry. Will it happen? We can’t wait to see how this goes down.

While we believe the G-Men will be able to pull off an upset in this one, there’s plenty of other wagers for fans to consider making for the action. In this piece, we take a look at three prop bets in particular for you to keep an eye on.

Saquon Barkley to score the first touchdown

You already know No. 26 is motivated to put on a show in this one. While people are going to be talking about Henry being the best running back on the field, look for Barkley to come out of the gates hot and give the G-Men an early lead. We’re going with Barkley to score the first touchdown of the game. That’s been given +700 odds.

Kenny Golladay will score his first NY Giants touchdown

Is there someone facing more pressure to perform than Kenny Golladay? That’s hard to say, but the wideout needs to deliver this year after having a rough 2021. Golladay signed a $72 million deal with the Giants, but didn’t live up to the hype last fall. A TD in his first game of ’22 would silence so many of his haters. Golladay has +270 odds to score at any point on Sunday. We think he’ll get that job done.

NY Giants will hold a lead at the end of the first quarter

The Giants are going to have to set the tone early on in this one if they want to take home a victory. From our chair, we think the G-Men will score a TD on their first possession and then add a Graham Gano Field goal in their second drive. Could a 10-7 lead after the first quarter be on the way? That’s our guess. The Giants to have a lead after the first 15 minutes has been given +125 odds.
