New York Giants vs. Arizona Cardinals 9/17/23 NFL Odds, Tips, and Best Picks

New York Giants (0-1) vs. Arizona Cardinals (0-1)

The NFL’s second week is upon us, and the stage is set for the New York Giants and the Arizona Cardinals to face off in a high-stakes showdown. Both teams enter the contest with 0-1 records and will be desperate to get their first win. Scheduled for September 17, 2023, at State Farm Stadium and airing on FOX at 4:05 PM ET, this matchup presents a myriad of options for those on the hunt for free football picks.

Saquon Barkley remains an essential piece of the Giants offense. His agility, vision, and elusiveness make him one of the most versatile running backs in the NFL. In Week 1, Barkley ran for 51 yards on 12 attempts, averaging 4.3 yards per carry – numbers may not jump off the page immediately. Still, they could signal his gradual but inevitable return after injuries in previous seasons. Barkley can also provide quarterback Daniel Jones a reliable option out of the backfield; with one or two big plays breaking out, he could singlehandedly alter momentum in favor of the Giants’ victory. Wide Receiver Isaiah Hodgins may go under-recognized, but his impact should not be underrated. Though only catching one pass for 24 yards in their opening game against Arizona, Hodgins has the speed and hands needed for challenging catches in tight spaces – providing Giants opponents with another severe threat and game-altering plays should Arizona focus too heavily on containing Barkley alone and neglect Hodgins altogether.

Conner is critical to Arizona’s offensive plan against the Giants. He’s a reliable runner who can wear down defenses and exploit their mistakes; in Week 1, Conner averaged an impressive 4.4 yards per carry average on 14 attempts, for an impressive total of 62 rushing yards on 14 carries (4.4 average yards per carry). Conner also contributes in the passing game, taking advantage of short-yardage situations, which could prove pivotal as the game winds down. Rondale Moore showed glimpses of what could become for the Arizona Cardinals during Week 1 when he collected 33 receiving yards on just three receptions, showing glimpses of his potential impact. Moore’s explosive speed and agility make him difficult for most defenders to match up with while being versatile enough to contribute on special teams as a return man. If Moore can develop rapport with quarterback Joshua Dobbs over time, it could emerge as an invaluable x-factor during Arizona’s campaign.

Daniel Jones QB vs. Joshua Dobbs QB

The Giants’ Daniel Jones had a less than stellar opening game, posting a passer rating of just 32.4. He completed only 15 of his 28 passing attempts for a mere 104 yards, throwing no touchdowns and giving away two interceptions. His poor performance places him under the microscope going into Week 2.

Contrastingly, Joshua Dobbs of the Cardinals showcased better form despite the loss. He boasted a passer rating of 78.8 and completed 21 of his 30 passes for 132 yards. More importantly, Dobbs didn’t turn the ball over, which could prove critical in this upcoming game.


NFL Odds/Point Spread: New York Giants -245, Total Odds: 40

For those ready to place their bets, the Giants are the favorites with a spread of -5.5 (-110), and a moneyline of -245. The Cardinals, on the other hand, have a spread of +5.5 (-110) and a moneyline of +205. The over/under total is set at 40, with both options priced at -110.


New York Giants Betting Trends 

Let’s dig deeper into the Giants’ trends. Their 5-2 ATS record in their last seven games is eye-catching. Yet, their 1-5 ATS and 1-5 SU in their last six games against Arizona are troubling. However, on the road, they seem to shine, boasting a 5-1 ATS record in their last six away games. The Giants appear to be the type of team that performs better in unfamiliar territory.


Arizona Cardinals Betting Trends 

The Cardinals’ recent form doesn’t inspire confidence. With a disheartening 0-8 SU in their last eight games and a 0-5 SU in their last five home games, it’s hard to bet in their favor. Additionally, their struggles are not limited to home games, as they are 0-5 SU against NFC opponents. However, the total has gone UNDER in 7 of Arizona’s last 9 games when playing at home against NY Giants, a factor to consider for those interested in total points betting.


New York Giants vs. Arizona Cardinals 9/17/23 Betting Picks

After evaluating all available data, including player performance, odds, and betting trends, the most prudent bet appears to be on the New York Giants to cover the spread of -5.5. The Giants’ overall ATS and SU records, combined with the Cardinals’ poor form, make New York a compelling pick. Remember, the best sports betting platforms offer a range of options to boost your chances of a win. While both teams will fight valiantly, the Giants appear better poised to claim their first win of the season. For those interested in betting, backing the Giants to cover the spread should provide a reasonable opportunity for profit.
