Why the Giants can cover
The Giants are a strong defensive team, ranking in the top ten of the NFL in total defense (340.1 yards allowed per game) and scoring defense (23.0 points allowed per game). New York is also above-average in getting after the quarterback, generating 27 sacks, and the Giants have allowed only 16 sacks, eighth-fewest in the NFL.
The Giants are potent against the run, allowing fewer than 100 yards per game and only 3.9 yards per carry.
Offensively, the Giants have been less efficient in 2020, though Wayne Gallman ranks in the top ten of the league with six rushing touchdowns. Seattle's defense is porous, however, with the Seahawks ranking dead-last in the NFL in total defense (418.1 yards allowed per game) and pass defense (328.8).
Why the Seahawks can cover
The Seahawks are a potent offensive team behind Russell Wilson, Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. Seattle is currently No. 5 in the NFL in total offense, averaging 391 yards per game, and the Seahawks are No. 4 in passing offense (273.8 yards per game) and No. 3 in scoring offense (31.0 points per game).
While the Seahawks haven't been quite as dominant in the running game this season, Seattle remains efficient, ranking near the top of the league at 4.7 yards per carry. New York has allowed 31 sacks, fourth-most, and the Seahawks could keep pressure in the opposing backfield.
