Picking the Thursday Game: Giants at Redskins

New York Giants at Washington Redskins:

Orakpo's hand injury will limit his effectiveness

Orakpo’s hand injury will limit his effectiveness

Line: Redskins by 3.5
Over/Under: 45.5

Analysis: The Redskins secondary is hurting with cornerback DeAngelo Hall and third safety Duke Ihenacho both placed on injured reserve this week. The short week gives Washington precious little time to adjust to the changes in personnel. Brian Orakpo is also dealing with a broken finger that requires a hard cast to protect. The Giants offense seems to have come together at precisely the right time to take advantage of the Redskins weaknesses and they will head into their “mini-bye” on a two game win streak. Take the points.

Straight pick: Giants
Spread Pick: Giants + 3.5
OU Pick: Over 45.5

Pick Confidence: Low on all three picks
