The New York Giants were looking to be on the rise after a wonderful overtime win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 5. However, they were dominated in every facet of the game against the Dallas Cowboys last week.
NFL Betting Giants vs Rams
Injuries played a massive factor in this game though as the G-Men lost Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, Kenny Golladay and were already without Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard. With the injuries rapidly piling up for New York, they look to pick up a huge underdog win over the Los Angeles Rams.
Will Daniel Jones be able to get back into the starting lineup and lead his team toa statement victory, or will Mike Glennon wind up starting? Let’s take a closer look at the game and the best props to bet.

- Rams To Win By 13-18 Points (at BetMGM)
- Giants To Score 20+ Points (at BetMGM)
Player Props To Bet
The Los Angeles Rams have welcomed Matthew Stafford into their offense with open arms and he has delivered. Starting off 4-1 on the year with 12 touchdowns and just three interceptions, he should be more than capable of going over the 283 passing yard mark in this game.
Stafford hasn’t had a single game this season in which he has thrown for under 275 yards. That streak should continue and make this prop bet a success.
The Giants haven’t been amazing defensively all year and are bound to have issues against the talented wideout group that the Rams boast. To be specific, New York is 28th in the league right now in average yards allowed to their opponent per game.
It doesn’t help them that Los Angeles is coming off a great game against their division rivals. In that game, Stafford threw for 365 yards with a 108.2 quarterback rating against the Seattle Seahawks.
Darrell Henderson Over 96.5 Yards From Scrimmage
Darrell Henderson has had some health issues that he has had to overcome so far in 2021. Those issues caused him to miss one game and wind up on the injury report ahead of this matchup. However, when he has been able to get onto the field, he is the unquestioned workhorse of the team.
In four games for the Rams, Henderson has surpassed 50 rushing yards in each of them and has been involved in the passing game as well, breaking 15 yards there every game also. In a game against a Giants team that struggled to slow down Ezekiel Elliott, Henderson should have a number of opportunities to smash this prop bet.
Matt Gay Over 2.5 Extra Points Made
Matt Gay happens to work behind one of the most talented offenses in the league this season. He has banked in at least two extra points in every game this year and that shouldn’t stop this weekend.
Gay missed an extra point last week against the Seahawks but the Giants just allowed three extra points to Greg Zuerlein and the Dallas Cowboys. In a game that could end up being a blowout with the Rams scoring a lot of points, Gay is going to be busy.
