The weather will be awful before the 1 p.m. kickoff for the final game of the 2022 season for Washington and the New York Giants.

It seems only fitting that this pair of teams meet to end the pain and suffering of their fan bases, given the monumental disappointment of their respective performances this season.

The good news is that The Washington Football Team will finally get the mascot their fans deserve on Feb. 7 and my money is that they will become the Washington Admirals.

The Giants truly have given their fan base nothing positive in the 2022 season, with an abysmal 4-12 record heading into this finale.

Rough Season For New York Giants

How bad has it been for the Giants and their fans this season? Let’s start with the current five-game losing streak both straight-up and against the spread for NFL betting.

The Giants have been outscored by 92 points and have lost to the spread by a combined total of 47 points. To put in other terms, the Giants have lost their past five games by an average of 18.4 points SU and by an average of 9.4 points to the spread.

The last time the Giants had a five-game streak that was this poor was from Weeks 2 through 6 of the 2013 season and they were outscored by 101 points.

Last week, the Giants became the first team since 2009 to end a game with negative net passing yards. They had –10 net passing yards in the 29-3 road loss to the Chicago Bears. The Tennessee Titans were the last team to finish a game with negative net passing yards in a game they lost 59-0 to the New England Patriots in 2009.

Washington Football Team Struggling Lately

The Football Team enters this game in a similar negative fashion sporting a four-game losing streak and only covering the spread in their 20-16 loss to the playoff-bound Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17. They have been beaten by 42 points to the spread over this four-game stint.

In Week 2, Washington won 30-29 and quarterback Taylor Heinicke set a franchise record, completing 34 of his 46 passes. That broke the 32 completions set by John Friesz in the 1994-95 season.

What the Analytics Say in the Giants vs. WFT matchup

OK, now let’s look for the silver lining in this matchup, especially since it is the launch of New York online sports betting.

The analytics for this matchup point to a money-making opportunity on the Giants.

The following betting angle has earned a 160-94-2 ATS record, or 63% winning bets over the past 40 NFL seasons and has produced a highly profitable 27-14 ATS record over the past 10 seasons.

Bet on underdogs of 3.5 to 9.5 points that have scored 17 or fewer points in three consecutive games and have been outscored by five or more points in the first half. I lean to the Giants to end the tortuous season with at least an ATS win for their fans.
