Lean – NY Giants (+6) over CHICAGO

Daniel Jones has a 9.7% sack rate, which only ranks better than the two Tennessee quarterbacks, and the rookie will likely see plenty of pressure again in this matchup. Left tackle Nate Solder ranks 8th-worst in pass blocking efficiency and has no chance of staying in front of Khalil Mack. Jones will need to get the ball out quickly to slot receiver Golden Tate, who has a favorable matchup lining up across from the worst player in Chicago’s secondary, nickelback Buster Skrine. Giants’ TE Evan Engram missed the last game but could return this week and the team-leader in targets could make an impact as the Bears rank below average versus opposing tight ends. Chicago’s 3rd-rated rush defense is likely to decline a bit without Danny Trevathan, whose 10.4% run stop rate ranks 7th among linebackers, but they should still be able to contain Saquon Barkley.

Mitchell Trubisky was pulled at the end of last week’s game due to a hip pointer but he should be back under center on Sunday. Our metrics indicate Trubisky has been more than 10 point per game worse this season than he was in 2018, as it seems the league has figured out the third-year quarterback. However, Trubisky may find some success in this matchup. The Bears target running backs on 28.4% of passes (4th-most) and the Giants are allowing 7.6 yards per target to opposing running backs (30th).

The Giants have had an extra week to prepare coming off a bye and bad teams have a tendency to come out of their bye week with a good effort. Perhaps having a week in which they didn’t lose a game buoys the spirits of bad teams. Regardless, teams with a win percentage of less than .400 and a spread win percentage of less than .334 are 57-24 ATS as underdogs of 4 points or more and the Giants also apply to a 92-30-2 ATS situation. Our model favors Chicago by just 4.7 points, with a predicted total of 39.3 points, and I’ll lean with the Giants in this one.
