The Giants have been the surprise team through the first five games of the NFL season.
All the media members and experts told us that the Giants would be terrible and anyone saying different didn’t know what they were talking about.
That has changed. The Giants are quickly becoming the media darling.
We wrote about this:
I like the Giants as an underdog. I prefer that and I’m sure the Giants do as well.
The opening line for the Giants game is -5 Ravens. This line tells me that Vegas is giving a little bit of credit to the Giants but they still aren’t full believers in them.
That is why I am picking the Giants to beat the Ravens this weekend. Although the Ravens are certainly a very good team it is impossible not to see the flaws this team has. Anyone who watched the Ravens’ game against the Bengals comes away saying although they won they didn’t play their best. They should have won that game by double digits. Not because the Bengals aren’t good but because the Ravens got out to a 10-0 lead and then went on two make key mistakes that cost them points and allowed the Bengals to come back.
It is that very reason I think the Giants will beat the Ravens this week. The Ravens are likely going into this game thinking this should be an easy win for them. That kind of mindset will lead to this game staying close. That will lead to the Giants closing out the game just like they did to the Packers.
Prediction: Giants 24 Ravens 17
