Analysis | NFL best bets for Week 14: Lots of points from the Cowboys and Eagles



Monday, 8:15 p.m. | ABC, ESPN Plus

Pick: Giants team total under 15½ points (The pick is Packers -6½, but it isn’t a best bet.)

The Giants’ offense is historically bad, scoring 13.5 fewer points per game than expected this season. Since 2002, when the league expanded to 32 teams, only seven teams have been worse, per data from TruMedia. In addition, New York has been held to 14 or fewer points in eight of 12 games; the Giants have scored 10 or fewer points six times, more than any other team in the league.
