Picks For 10-2 2000 1125 The Ultimate Lineup

Xam’s Gem(s):

Seahawks Money Line -142

The Seahawks come into town with the better and healthier team. After a disappointing Week 1 performance, they’ve scored 37 points in each of the last 2 games. They face a defense that has been hemorrhaging points and yards. They’ve given up no less than 26 points on the defensive side of the ball. The Giants are missing stud left tackle Andrew Thomas and superstar running back Saquon Barkley. Outside of the 2nd half in Arizona, the offense of the Giants has left a lot to be desired as well. The Seahawks have given up their share of big plays, but they’ve shown they can get after the QB with 5 sacks in the last 2 games.

Xam’s Prop(s):

Geno Smith Over 249.5 Passing Yards -110

Geno has thrown for over 600 yards in his last 2 games, and this Giants defense has regressed. Geno has all the confidence in the world and elite weapons to throw to. If the Giants struggle to keep drives going again, the defense will be on the field even longer and get worn down as the game progresses. The Seahawks have an offense that can score with the best of them, and their wide receivers have good run after the catch capabilities as well.

Tyler Lockett Over 52.5 Receiving Yards -110

Lockett has 11 catches and 17 targets over the last two weeks, so he clearly has the trust of Geno Smith. Given that the Giants have struggled on defense and Lockett is targeted on deep passes virtually every game, Lockett will have his opportunities to leave his mark on this game. The Giants have allowed 6 other players to go above 52.5 yards as well. The Giants have holes in the secondary, and with the passing game in sync for Seattle, that spells bad news for the Giants.

DK Metcalf Over 4.5 Receptions -170

This is another play against a woeful secondary. Metcalf has had 6 receptions in each of the last 2 games, and has 19 targets through the first 3 games of the season. He also had 5 or more receptions in 12 games last year. He’s been a constant favorite for Geno Smith, and the Giants haven’t shown a consistent ability to stop opposing wide receivers. Metcalf had 6 receptions last year against the Giants as well.

Daniel Jones Over 36.5 Rushing Yards -110

Jones has gone over this number twice already this season. The Giants have a banged up offensive line and are missing their best offensive skill player in Saquon Barkley. Jones will likely need to improvise a little bit to keep the offense on track, and one of his best assets are his legs. The Seahawks should be able to get pressure tonight, as the Giants have already given up 12 sacks this year. That constant pressure will force Jones to move and make things happen. The biggest key here will be the Giants keeping this game close, to give Jones motivation to keep running and moving.

Kenneth Walker III Over 80.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards -114

Walker is coming off his best game of the season last week, when he totaled 156 total yards. He ran for 97 alone, and the Giants have surrendered 122 rushing yards or more in each game this season! Walker is also involved in the passing game. He has 10 targets on the season, which shows Geno Smith’s trust in him in the passing game. The Seahawks will undoubtedly look to ride Walker tonight given New York’s struggle against the run.
