Good morning, Pickswise Nation, and welcome to another marvellous Monday of sports. Well, it’s actually pretty quiet in terms of action with just Monday Night Football and an EPL soccer game taking place, but we could use a more chilled day after the drama of the Ryder Cup and the final day of the MLB regular season! Let’s get straight to making your next bet better.

Best Bet of the Day 

NFL: New York Giants vs Seattle Seahawks over 47 points (-110)

These teams just can’t get stops, and it’s hard for a game to not go over when neither team’s defense can get off the field. The Seahawks rank 29th in the NFL in team defense and just gave up 27 points at home to Andy Dalton – and that was the fewest points they’ve allowed all season. They’re also 31st against the pass. The Giants are 30th in the NFL in points allowed, giving up 32.7 per game. Both offenses should find success early and often in this matchup. Check out our full Seahawks vs Giants predictions.

Stat of the Day

The over is 7-3 in the Seahawks’ last 10 road games.

Quote of the Day 

“I lost us that game, and I can’t do that.”

— A costly late fumble ruined what had been a much-improved performance from Jets QB Zach Wilson against the Chiefs.
