A surprisingly solid trend favors perhaps the most unpopular pick of the week: The NY GIANTS

This is not an endorsement but I do like to share trends of interest and significance. Heard this on on one of the dozen podcasts I listen to per week.

This one favors the injur-depleted and bottom of the NFL barrel Giants.

ROAD DOGS who are playing a NON-DIVISIONAL OPPONENT, who are also WINLESS (Giants qualify with all 3) are:

50-18 ATS Since 1980.

The Giants are so banged up this trend for this game could be considered moot. I mean they are starting their 4th or 5th WR on the road, in Denver and are 0-5... bet what you see 
hardly covers

@ Culls- And why do you think those other 50 ATS winning teams were winless? Perfect health and competent football?

If you bet what you see, you bet DENVER every single time. That is the definition of square. 

That is not an endorsement but the purpose of the thread is to look at games through a prism other than the brutally obvious.

Browns and Niners also fit this trend.

Yep! As it's always been it appears just when everyone has given up all hope and wagers on teams that are playing lousy week in and week out such as the giants browns and Frisco have that is when the unheard of and uncharacteristic like play from these teams give true definition to the term.....On any given Sunday

Already liked the Giants, but your numbers are correct Scal.

Winless road dogs in week 6+, facing a non-divisional opponent since 1993:

SU:15-43-0 (-7.05, 25.9%)
ATS:40-17-1 (3.29, 70.2%)

Active on: 49ers, Giants, Browns

I have a ton of stuff favoring the 49ers here here, but such a bad scheduling spot for them.

Yes League. It's all gonna be bad! That's why these are winless teams! And typically it just keeps getting worse But coming from a different angle is always beneficial!

What is it that you're seeing that helps the 49ers? No Josh Norman or Trent Williams definitely helps them.

Is there a qualifying number of games that have to have been played?  Otherwise there HAS to be WAY more than 68 times this has occurred in 37 years.  Teams 0-1 on the road as dogs in a non-division game would qualify, and this year that would mean 4 different games qualified.  

Now I see League Cappers post stating it is for Week 6 on, so maybe that's it.  

Either way, no way the Giants can cover because 8,000,000 internet gambling posters can't be wrong.

I was leaning Giants ... but at a certain point a team will not be able to compete does not matter why type of trend is going for them.

The Giants just can't compete!!! No point to put money on them.

only way Giants can compete is if this defense completely shuts down Denver ( and they know its completely on them) and gives Eli a short field to work with......if they can make it an ugly game than NY has a shot.
