Devastated Giants are up against it at Denver

Fit-again Booker looks value for late TD glory

Devontae Booker celebrates scoring a TD for Denver last season
1 of 1

Sky Sports Action, 1.30am Monday

Few teams can have had tougher weeks than the Giants.

The winless team have not only lost their best player, wide receiver Odell Beckham, for the season, but two other players have also been ruled out for the year and a further six are out this week.

Throw in a coast-to-coast trip to face a strong Denver team fresh from their bye week and it’s no surprise to see double-figure handicaps on offer.

The Giants’ last three defeats have come by a combined ten points but they normally rely on their passing game to get them out of trouble and they will barely have one this week.

The potental for a blowout home victory leads to more interesting betting options.

Devontae Booker was the Broncos’ leading rusher last year but missed the start of the campaign with a wrist injury.

Fit again, he could get some late work replacing CJ Anderson and is a big price to score a touchdown.
