Giants vs Saints Prediction & NFL Odds for Week 4

by Jacob DeanSeptember 29, 2021
  • Giants are searching for win number one this season
  • Winston settling in as solid fit at QB
  • Barkley rounding into form

In week 4 of the NFL season, the New York Giants are on the road to face the New Orleans Saints. The kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, LA. The Giants who are led by quarterback Daniel Jones are seeking their first win of the season. The New Orleans Saints led by Jameis Winston are currently 2-1 on the season and are looking to keep things rolling.

The Giants defense has been an utter disaster this season allowing fourth quarter comeback drives in back-to-back games but it is hard to envision this game being close enough to make it three straight.

Against the Patriots, Jameis Winston threw for a pair of touchdowns while Giants were held to 14 points yet again for the second time in their last three games. The Saints on paper have the more talented roster and this game could get ugly fairly quickly.

Betting Lines & Odds for this game:

  • Spread: New Orleans Saints -7.5, New York Giants + 8.5
  • MoneyLine: New Orleans Saints -360, New York Giants +280
  • Total: 43

Giants vs Saints Prediction: Spread

Giants vs Saints Prediction Jason Garrett

The Giants hold a 16-14 overall winning record against the Saints but the safe play is on the Saints this weekend. The last time these two teams met the Saints won in dominant fashion 33-18 back in 2018. The Saints have also beaten the Giants six of the last ten times they have met.

Through three weeks of the NFL season, Daniel Jones has as many rushing touchdowns as he does passing touchdowns. Jason Garrett is very limited with what he can do with his offensive schemes given how bad the Giants offense is. News got worse when Sterling Shepard got hurt last week and is now nursing a hamstring strain. Saquan Barkely is still getting his legs loose from his ACL tear a season ago.

Giants vs Saints Prediction: MoneyLine

The Saints haven’t featured the most prolific offense this season either, especially in the passing game. While Jameis Winston has seven passing touchdowns this season, New Orleans is only averaging a mere 113.7 yards per contest. The only team with lower passing yards per game total is the Chicago Bears.

Expect a heavy dose of Alvin Kamara in this game. The Giants have surprisingly done a decent job allowing just 107 yards per game on the ground but they have given up the second-most receiving yards to back this season. Kamara is one of the elite pass-catching backs in the league.

  • Free Prediction: Saints -360

Giants vs Saints Prediction: Total

The Saints are favored to win this game and they should cover. Sean Payton’s team has a big win over the Packers by 35 points, and 15 points over the Patriots. The Giants blew a 14 point lead over the Broncos in Week one and have scored 14 points or fewer three times this season.

This game features two of the worst offenses in the NFL and because of this you can hammer the under for this Giants vs Saints matchup.

  • Free Prediction: Under 43

Prop Bet

Alvin Kamara should be featured a ton in the passing game. As stated earlier, the Giants have given up the second most receiving yards to backs this season. A realistic line for Kamara on the day would sit around 6 catches for around 100 yards with a touchdown.
