New York Giants vs Houston Texans NFL match analysis, predictions and odds

The Houston Texans (1-6-1) take to the road to face the New York Giants (6-2) at the MetLife Stadium on Sunday for a Week 10 matchup. The New York Giants are in third place in NFC East after collecting six wins from eight games so far in the regular season, while one win in eight matches leaves Houston Texans fourth in the AFC South. The New York Giants are the big favorites to snatch the win on the moneyline. Considering how strongly the oddsmakers rate their chances against the Houston Texans, the home crowd will be anything but impressed if they somehow slip up at the MetLife Stadium.

Form New York Giants

Even though the Seattle Seahawks beat them 27-13 last time out, the New York Giants still look good. They’re on an excellent run of form, having collected four wins in five games. Their overall record from the past 10 games stands at 7-3.

The New York Giants continue to put up decent numbers in offense, scoring 21.4 points in their last five matches. Considering their season average is 20.4 points, this suggests the offensive unit is consistent. On the defensive side of the ball, there has been no letup whatsoever. The hosts boast one of the stingiest defenses in the entire country, allowing just 19.6 points per game for this season, and have remained formidable in the past five games, having only given up 19.6 points on average.

In 2021, the New York Giants came home in fourth place in the NFC East standings after going 4-13 across all games. The hosts naturally hope to go even better this season. However, like every other team in the NFL, sealing a spot in the playoff during this regular season is the first and foremost priority for now.

Form Houston Texans

The visitors have given up 24.8 points in the previous five outings, which is more or less on par with the 22.9 points they’ve allowed per game over the course of the regular season.

Unsurprisingly, the Houston Texans are unlikely to make the NFL postseason as things stand. Few people expected the home side to go far, and given their 1-6-1 regular season record, it seems they had good reason.
