Week 8 of the NFL season is promising fun for fans in the Empire City, as this weekend will witness the intense rivalry between two home teams, the New York Giants and the New York Jets.
The match, set on October 29 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, is expected to revolve around a key matchup between the Giants’ pass rush and the Jets’ offensive line.
On the same day at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh, the home team Steelers and opponent Jacksonville Jaguars are also up for a match. The Steelers, who currently hold a 4-2 record, will be facing the Jaguars (5-2), who are favored to win the game by 2.5 points.
The matchup between the Jets and the Giants is expected to be closely contested, as both teams are facing a challenging season. The Giants are in a semi-rebuilding phase, while injuries have plagued the Jets.
While neither Tyrod Taylor nor Zach Wilson are standout quarterbacks, the Giants might gain an advantage due to Taylor’s mobility. The Jets hold the upper hand in the wide receiver department with Garrett Wilson, but the Giants have a stronger running back and tight end duo in Saquon Barkley and Darren Waller.
Though neither team screams powerhouse, the Giants’ home-field advantage and Taylor’s mobility could make a significant difference. If Taylor can use his legs to move the chains and control the clock, the Giants may come out on top. As such, the Giants are the top pick with a +3 point spread at odds of -110.
The Jaguars are set to face the Steelers with a slim 1.5-point spread, making it a tossup. While Jacksonville holds an offensive advantage, Pittsburgh boasts a formidable defense led by stars like TJ Watt and Minkah Fitzpatrick.
The Steelers’ offense, though inconsistent, has excelled in the fourth quarter. To secure a win, they need to unleash their offense early, taking more risks and showing more dynamism.
Even if they stick to the status quo, their defense and fourth-quarter heroics should keep the game close. With the tight spread, choosing the Steelers’ money line for an outright win offers better value as it stands at +108.
