The Giants’ hopes are already fading, but the Commanders got new life from a road win over the Falcons last weekend. When Sam Howell isn’t taking a sack, Washington’s offense has actually been very solid. Is that something bettors can take advantage of on Sunday?

Saquon Barkley Over 63.5 Rushing Yards (-120, BetMGM)
The Giants leaned heavily on Saquon Barkley against the Bills, which ordinarily would be no surprise, but 24 carries fresh off of an ankle injury tells us how much the Giants know he’s their best bet offensively. With Tyrod Taylor in line to start again, Barkley figures to see heavy usage.
The former No. 2 pick really started to find his legs late in the game in Buffalo. He was badly inefficient early on, rushing for 12 yards on his first 12 attempts, but he had 81 yards over his next 12 carries. The Commanders allow 4.6 yards per carry, which ranks 26nd in the league, so Barkley should be able to roll to at least 65 rushing yards unless Jack Del Rio’s defense has an unusually strong day.
Darius Slayton Over 32.5 Receiving Yards (-114, FanDuel)
Not much went right for the Giants’ passing game against the Bills, but the Tyrod Taylor-to-Darius Slayton connection looked surprisingly solid. Taylor hit Slayton in stride twice for big gains, and Slayton would finish the night with 69 yards on four catches. He was targeted six times.
Even before Taylor stepped in for Daniel Jones, Slayton was averaging 38 yards per game over his previous four games. It looks like Taylor has found a receiver he trusts, and a very forgiving Commanders pass defense shouldn’t be tough for Slayton to beat for 33 or more yards.
Jahan Dotson 40+ Receiving Yards (+128, FanDuel)
Sam Howell is coming under pressure to start getting Jahan Dotson involved in the offense after he received just one target last week, and Howell is hearing the critics. He had plenty of great things to say about Dotson this week, telling reporters “We trust Jahan. He is a hell of a player, and I’m going to continue to try to do everything I can to get him the ball just like all of our guys.”
That could very well just be quarterback talk, but why not use a matchup with the Giants to experiment? Dotson was averaging six targets per game before the matchup in Atlanta, only getting to the 40-yard mark against Arizona.
The Giants are allowing 7.3 yards per attempt through the air, so it should be a nice day for the Commanders’ passing game. That could absolutely mean a little bit of a breakthrough for Dotson, who has proven he can be a weapon alongside Terry McLaurin.
Kayvon Thibodeaux to Record a Sack (+125, FanDuel)
Sam Howell is on pace to shatter the record for sacks taken by a quarterback in one season – if he can stay in one piece. The numbers are hard to believe. He’s already been sacked 34 times through just six games and has taken 5+ sacks in five of his six games.
The Giants’ defensive front could be the latest team to get to Howell, even though the second-year QB continues to have success when he’s upright. That means Kayvon Thibodeaux should be in line for a sack. Thibodeaux has four sacks in his last four games, even with the Giants losing each game.
There are still plenty of ways for Thibodeaux to get better, but he’s starting to get to quarterbacks consistently and could have a clear path to Howell – as most top edge rushers have – on Sunday.
