Monday Night Football features the New York Giants on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs to finish up what has been an exciting Week 8 in the NFL.
Our team of experts at VSiN has the game covered from all angles, with a market report from South Point oddsmaker Chris Andrews, along with picks on the game from VSiN's Dave Tuley, Adam Burke and Ben Brown from Pro Football Focus.
New York Giants at Kansas City Chiefs (-10, 52)
Market report from Chris Andrews: I opened Kansas City -10. The Giants have been getting sharp respect all season. A couple of bettors bought it up to + 10.5 for large wagers. I dropped to 9.5 for a few days. I moved back to KC -10 over the weekend when RB Saquon Barkley and WR Kenny Golladay were declared out for the Giants. Sharps laid the 9.5. The public is still laying -10. Very little play so far on my opening total of 52.
Tuley: The Super Bowl loser hangover continues to haunt the Chiefs. Now they’re installed as 10-point home favorites on “Monday Night Football” against the Giants, who improved to only 2-5 after their 25-3 rout of the Panthers.
Still, that result, combined with the Chiefs’ 27-3 loss to the Titans, caused this line to go from Chiefs -13 on the advance line last week to just -10 earlier in the week. I think it’s a valid adjustment as New York impressed me with its win Sunday, even though it was against the reeling Panthers. Besides, even when the Chiefs were the betting world’s darlings, they still weren’t covering spreads.
