5 New York Giants prop bets to make in Week 14
Giants +0.5 (-155) in first quarter
The Giants have been on a roll lately, particularly at home. New York led the Philadelphia Eagles 7-3 after the first quarter in Week 10, and they were up 7-3 on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 8.
And in Week 6, they were leading 10-0 after 15 minutes against the Washington Football Team, too. Yes, the Cardinals are a little better than at least the Eagles and Washington, but the Giants catching a half-point at home after 15 is a good play.

Giants +0.5 (-110) in first half
We discussed backing Big Blue above after 15 minutes, so what about at the break? The G-Men have been tied or leading at halftime in four of the past five outings, including each of their past three home dates. New York is the play after 30 minutes, too.
PK Graham Gano OVER 6.5 points (-120)
Kicker props are fun, especially when they’re a good bet to come through. Gano has recorded nine or more points in three of the past four outings, and he is averaging 7.8 points per game across the past four home contests.
PK Graham Gano OVER 1.5 extra points (-190)
This prop is a little riskier, and you might think it sort of cannibalizes the aforementioned OVER 6.5 points (-120) listed above. It doesn’t. He can still cash both of these props.
I only expect the G-Men to score two, perhaps three touchdowns. The rest will be field goal attempts. The Giants have averaged 24.0 PPG in three previous home games, with Gano posting two or more extra points in each of those games (seven total).
WR Sterling Shepard OVER 4.5 receptions (+110)
Shepard disappeared in last weekend’s 17-12 win in Seattle, posting just one catch for 22 yards on his six targets. He won’t duplicate that effort, and he is a great value at plus-money as he looks to rebound. In his previous five games, he posted six more receptions.
Shepard just didn’t gel at all with QB Colt McCoy, who stepped in for the injured QB Daniel Jones (hamstring) against the Seahawks. Danny Dimes is questionable for Sunday, but practiced in full Friday and is expected back under center. Shepard will have his QB back, and he’ll also have at least five grabs.
