The Giants and Raiders are set to meet on Sunday with a ton of intrigue surrounding this one.
There will be no shortage of storylines as Daniel Jones is set to return from a neck injury and the Raiders are set to be coached by former Giants legend Antonio Pierce after the team fired head coach Josh McDaniels earlier this week. However, let's focus on who is finding the end zone and get everyone paid.
While this total is among the lowest on the entire NFL Week 10 docket, there's plenty of options to bet on when it comes to finding the end zone with starpower in both skill position groups.
Here's who I'm eyeing come Sunday:
Giants vs. Raiders Best Anytime Touchdown Scorer Picks
- Saquon Barkley (-105)
- Jalin Hyatt (+600)
- New York Giants Defense (+600)
Saquon Barkley (+105)
I want to allocate most of my funds towards long shots in a game that presents a ton of variance from a touchdown scorer perspective. With that being said, Barkley is the most likely man to find the end zone with the Giants offense on the upswing with Daniel Jones back under center.
Barkley's role can't be understated, he is the lead back who is keeping this Giants team competitive in games and is facing a porous Raiders defense that is allowing the fourth most rushing touchdowns per game this season, more than one per contest.
Jalin Hyatt (+600)
Hyatt continues to be the deep threat in this Giants offense and his role continues to grow, getting four and five targets over his last two games, respectively, including a 42 yard catch last week in the team's win against the Commanders.
However, the rookie still hasn't found paydirt just yet, keeping his odds long. While his snap count dropped to only 33% last week, he was over 70% in the prior two games and his target share is double what it was early in the year.
The Las Vegas secondary has been torched this season, 22nd in EPA/Pass and all it takes is one deep shot for Hyatt to breakthrough.
New York Giants Defense (+600)
The Raiders are in disarray, firing its coach and GM and making the move to rookie quarterback Aidan O'Connell. There is a chance this Raiders team completely collapses on the season, if it hasn't already.
In a game that will likely feature a ton of fighting for field position, I'll bank on the Giants defense to continue its fine play. The unit hasn't allowed more than 14 points over the last two weeks and will now go up against a struggling offense onto a seldom used rookie.
O'Connell has appeared in two games, throwing an interception in both games, but it's his lone start that makes me excited about the prospects of this bet. O'Connell took seven sacks against the Chargers in Week 4. The prospects of a negative play in Las Vegas territory makes me bullish the likes of Kayvon Thibodeaux or Dexter Lawrence can generate turnovers into scores.
