Week 12 NFL odds, Packers vs. Giants: New York is slight favorite over Green Bay

Jamie Squire

The Giants will look to turn around their recent misfortune against the Packers, one of the hottest teams in the league.

The New York Giants and Green Bay Packers face off on Sunday in New York on Sunday Night Football in a battle of the last two Super Bowl champions. Fittingly, the Giants are just a 1.5-point favorite in the opening lines.

The Giants come in at 6-4 and the Packers are 7-3, but they're going in opposite directions. The Giants have lost their last two games, opening the door for the Dallas Cowboys to sneak back into contention in the NFC East. Meanwhile, the Packers have won their last five games after a sluggish start to their season and are currently tied atop the NFC North with the Chicago Bears.

The Giants bring the ninth-best passing and 13th-best rushing attacks in the NFL to the game but they surrender 257.8 passing yards per game and will be facing a Packers offense led by Aaron Rodgers. The Packers average 246.3 passing yards per game, so whichever team can stop the opposing teams' quarterback from having a big game has the best shot at winning. But according to the standings and the opening lines, this should be a close game that comes down to the wire.
