The Giants have been good, but not great, so far this season, averaging 6.0 yards per play and allowing 5.2 yppl to a schedule that is 0.2 yppl worse than average from the line of scrimmage and about 1 point worse than average on a points scale.
Kansas City, meanwhile, has been out-gained 4.6 yppl to 5.6 yppl by a schedule of teams that would out-gain an average team by 0.4 yppl - so the Chiefs are 0.6 yppl worse than average.
These two teams are about what I thought they would be and my ratings favor New York by 8 points in this game, so the line is about right, but the situational analysis favors Kansas City in this game.
The Giants are an incredible 21-4 ATS in their last 25 games away from home, but they're only 1-2 ATS in those games when favored by more than 7 points.
I'll lean slightly with the Chiefs plus the points against a banged up Giants team with a long injury list.
