Best Thursday Night Football bets: Giants-WFT

By VSiN Staff  ( 


Week 2 begins with a division rivalry as the New York Giants take on the Washington Football Team. This is a big one in the NFC East thanks to a couple of 0-1 starts, but the Washington side will be missing starting QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. It will be Taylor Heinicke in his place against a solid Giants defense that underperformed last week.

We've got a market report on the game from South Point director Chris Andrews and best bets from Adam Burke and Will Hill as Week 2 kicks off.

New York Giants at Washington Football Team (-3, 41)

Market report from Chris Andrews: I opened Washington -4. Early money took the Giants +4, and the Giants at +3.5. I dropped to three, and money came back on the hosts at -3. I’m at Washington -3.5 right now. More money on New York, but I don’t feel like going back to three just yet. I think 3.5’s the better number. I’ll drop it on game day if we become too one-sided. 

Taylor Heinicke will be the Washington quarterback. I didn’t make much of an adjustment from Ryan Fitzpatrick. I probably would have opened Washington -5 with Fitzpatrick (who suffered a hip injury early last week vs. the Chargers). I don’t think there’s a big drop-off to Heinicke. He’s played pretty well as a pro and I liked him at Old Dominion. Fitzpatrick is inconsistent. It’s not like Heinicke is replacing an elite quarterback. Fitzpatrick is literally a journeyman QB.
