Bobby Babowski’s Prediction: BIG BLUE travels down to the Bayou for what should be a BIG BIG MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL week 12 matchup. The SAINTS are dominate at home, and Drew Brees, and the SAINTS high powered offense should be able to have their way with a banged up Giants D who have lost 2 of their last 3 games. Only problem is ELI MANNING will be pumped up and old man ARCHIE should be able to sell few thousand tickets himself for the MANNING HOMECOMING PARADE IN THE SUPERDOME!! Home field advantage – NOT SO SURE THIS TIME – Saints FansÂ may come marching in , but SPORTING GIANTS JERSEYS BIG AND BLUE! Giants HC Tom Coughlin (as you can see in his post game interview last week is truly DISGUSTED with the fact that while RB Bradshaw has been out), 275 lb BEAST Brandon Jacobs is tippy toing around the offensive line and looks horrible lately (less than 30 yards rushing last week, UNACCEPTABLE FOR A BEAST BACK!) Gmen need this one bad , as do Saints, with only 5 weeks left and the Falcons winning yesterday!
GMEN lost last two back to back vs San Fran and Eagles, however, Eli Manning is having an excellent year and has kept his team in the game right til the buzzer, (lost SF and Eagles last minute by 7).Â UltimateCapper Staff Selections have both JAY COOPER (already 3 for 4 in his week 12 TOP PLAYS!) AND BOBBY B on the GMEN AS TOP PLAYS , even at -7..line has moved to 7.5 and that half point or shall we say the HOOKÂ shouldÂ be exactly what the doctor ordered for a GMEN cover for sure! HOOK LINE AND SINKER!!
