In a 360-turn-around from last week’s matchup against the New England Patriots, the New York Giants are hosting the Arizona Cardinals in what is predicted to be a much closer game Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

The 2-4 Giants, per DraftKings Nation, are 3-point favorites over the Cardinals.

The 3-point spread is one amongst a handful of close matchups predicted for week seven in the NFL on the DraftKings page. The Houston Texans are one point-favorites over the Indianapolis Colts and so are the Minnesota Vikings over the Detroit Lions and the Los Angeles Chargers over the Tennessee Titans.

After narrowly defeating the Falcons by one point on Sunday, the Cardinals are 2-3-1 so far this season, placing them in fourth place in the NFC West. The Cardinals are averaging 22.3 points per game and have scored 134 points this season compared to the 18.5 and 111 points scored by the Giants. Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has passed for 1,664 yards this season. Running back David Johnson leads the team in rushing with 298 yards and Larry Fitzgerald is their number one receiver with 427 receiving yards.

Linebacker Jordan Hicks poses a threat with his team-leading 62 tackles this season.

The Giants are looking for their third win of the season and their second win at home as they host the Cardinals Sunday.
