Moneyline: Giants -227 favorites to win (bet $10 to win $14.41 total); Texans +170 underdogs to win (bet $10 to win $27 total)

Pick via Gambling Analyst Sam Panayotovich:
There’s no history of Brian Daboll-led teams off the bye.
But the first-year Giants head coach has pushed all the right buttons in his inaugural season as a leading man and I have no reason to short him now. New York is an NFL-best 6-2 against the spread (ATS) because they’re constantly prepared, and Daboll and his staff regularly make the correct in-game adjustments.
Let’s also not ignore that the bye week allowed New York’s defensive front to rest and recover. This should be the healthiest that players like Leonard Williams and Kayvon Thibodeaux will be all season. Oh… and Houston quarterback Davis Mills doesn’t scare me one bit.
Give me the Giants by a touchdown.
