Week 4 of the 2023 NFL season will wrap up with a very interesting and important game on Monday Night Football. The New York Giants are set to host the Seattle Seahawks, and both teams in this game need to find a way to win.
Seattle comes into this game with a record of 2-1, and they are coming into this game with some momentum. The Seahawks have picked up two straight victories, and they are right in the middle of the division race in the NFC West Division.
The New York Giants have had a rough start to the 2023 season, as they have gone just 1-2 through the first three games. New York is dealing with a number of injuries, and they are struggling to stay in the playoff hunt.
The Seahawks are 1.5-point betting favorites over the Giants on Monday Night Football.
Seattle Must Get Stops
The Seattle Seahawks might be 2-1 this season, but they are also allowing over 418 total yards per game on defense. Seattle is going to have to find a way to turn things around on defense if they want to continue to head in the right direction.
If the Seahawks aren’t able to get a bunch of stops in this game, then they will try to win it on offense. That is where the Seahawks have an edge in this game, as they are averaging nearly 350 yards per game.
Quarterback Geno Smith has thrown for 736 yards and four touchdowns this season, and he can make some big throws. Running back Kenneth Walker III has 47 carries for 204 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.
Giants A Mess on Offense
The New York Giants can’t seem to do much of anything on the offensive side of the ball this season, as they are averaging just 277 yards of offense per game. Throwing the football has been the biggest issue, as New York isn’t even at 190 yards per game.
Quarterback Daniel Jones has been able to make some plays with his legs, but he has thrown for just 562 yards and two touchdowns. Jones doesn’t have a ton of talent to throw the ball to, and that has caused him to make some bad decisions.
The defense for the Giants hasn’t been much better this season, but that unit has to find a way to shut down the big plays in this game. New York has some work to do before they are able to get back on track.
Seahawks Get Job Done
The betting spread suggests that this should be a good game, and that’s how things are going to play out on Monday Night Football as well. New York is going to have the advantage of playing in this game at home, but that’s about the only edge they will have.
Seattle has had an interesting start to the 2023 season, but they have looked like a legitimate playoff contender when they are playing well. The offense of the Seahawks will eventually take charge in this game as they will pull away.
Bet the Seattle Seahawks at -1.5 on Monday Night Football as they pick up their third win of the season.
