The New York Giants (2-5) travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs (3-4)
Week 7 Record: 2-3, -1.46 units; 2021 Record: 9-14, -4.46 units
Kickoff is set for 8:15 pm EST from GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium on ESPN

The 2021 version of the Kansas City Chiefs is not what we’re used to seeing.

While Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce have shown flashes of dominance, there have been hiccups. Injuries, turnovers and protection issues have the Chiefs off to an uncharacteristic 3-4 start.

In New York, it’s the same old, same old for the Giants. Daniel Jones has had weeks where he’s looked the part of a sixth overall pick. Other weeks he’s struggled just like his team.

Someone will leave Arrowhead Stadium Monday night with a much-needed win.

Odds as of October 31st at DraftKings

*Indicates Pass + Rush yards

It’s little surprise that the Chiefs are heavy home favorites. Sure Week 7 against the Titans was a flop, but on paper bettors are expecting them to lap the Giants. New York has allowed 27+ points in four of their seven games. KC has put up 30 or more in four of their seven games.

One way or another, there should be points on Monday night.

Jones Running For His Life

For seemingly his whole career, the Giants offensive line has had trouble protecting Daniel Jones. It’s not a recipe for success for a young QB.

According to PFF, the Giants are 30th in pass protection this year. They’ve allowed the ninth-most sacks and pressures according to O-Line stats, which isn’t good because they’ve spent over 65% of their snaps in pass protection.

Daniel Jones is passing, rushing, and now receiving for this Giants offense.

Now all he needs is to start blocking for himself and we may have something going.

Jones has at least four rushing attempts in four of his seven games. In Weeks 5 and 6 he only took off three times, rushing for nine and four yards. Every other week he’s totaled at least 27 yards.

KC has done well containing QBs the last two weeks, but Josh Allen rolled up 59 yards on Sunday Night Football. Before that, Jalen Hurts and Lamar Jackson torched them on the ground as well.

This number is low for how often Jones runs. And with a banged up group of receivers, Jones will be running plenty.

The Pick: Daniel Jones OVER 21.5 rushing yards (-115); 1 Unit

Cheetah Looks to Break Free

When you look at Tyreek Hill’s game logs, his production is just as uneven as the Chiefs in 2021.

Hill exploded onto the scene with 197 yards against the Browns in the opener. Since then, his receiving totals have wildly fluctuated, going 14, 56,186, 63, 76 and 49. He’s had just two games with a reception over 20 yards.

3 extremely important players in the NYG V Chiefs game:

-Leonard Williams (KC has a solid offensive line, esp in pass pro, NYG will need Leo to step up big)

-Daniel Jones (needs to be efficient and play clean)

-Adoree Jackson (likely tasked with guarding Tyreek Hill)

DJ Moore had the Panthers’ longest reception against the Giants with 21 yards. The Rams had two receivers with 25+ yard catches, and every other opponent has had at least one receiver with a 25-yard catch.

While that could be good news for the Mecole Hardmans and Demarcus Robinsons of the world, this feels like a prove-it spot. People are doubting Mahomes and pointing fingers at the Chiefs offense. They need a win, and he’s going to use his most trusted targets to do it.

The Cheetah runs wild on Monday night.

The Pick: Tyreek Hill longest reception OVER 24.5 yards (-115); 1 unit

Giants vs Chiefs Scoring Props

Odds to Score First TD

Tyreek Hill, KC

Devontae Booker, NYG

Sterling Shephard, NYG

Mecole Hardman, KC

Patrick Mahomes, KC

Demarcus Robinson, KC

Daniel Jones, NYG

Kadarius Toney, NYG

Odds as of October 31st at DraftKings

The Giants are operating at just over 50% when it comes to scoring first, converting in four of seven games so far. Kansas City has done it just three times, with their defense contributing a pick-six in the process. That anomaly pays out at +450, but we won’t be backing it.

While Kelce and Hill are popular picks to score first, there’s not a ton of value. In fact, the books are basically guaranteeing the Chiefs are scoring first based on the odds. But let’s hope for a little intrigue on Monday night shall we?

Kadarius Toney, ready for Monday night.

— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) October 30, 2021

Kadarius Toney has been the Giants’ hottest receiver. Before missing the win over the Panthers, he had 19 catches on 25 targets over a dominant three-game stretch. He logged 189 yards against the Cowboys and was well on his way to a similar number against the Rams before his ankle flared up.

The rookie has yet to hit paydirt this year, but if he comes back and balls out again, he’s got a great shot at it. We’ll take the risk with his ankle and his status as a game-time decision.

In terms of scoring any time, Hill and Kelce are safe bets. If Toney and the Giants are able to put them in a whole, KC will be determined to score. And if they’re out to prove they aren’t dead in the water, the Chiefs will want to prove it in a big way in primetime.

The Pick: Kadarius Toney scores FIRST touchdown (+350); 0.5 units
The Pick: Tyreek Hill (+600) and Travis Kelce (+650) to score ANYTIME; 0.5 units each
