Falcons Vs. Giants, NFL Playoff Odds: New York Opens As A Three Point Favorite

The New York Giants will enjoy the customary three point cushion as the home team in Sunday's NFC Wild Card against the visiting Atlanta Falcons.

The Giants finished a season sweep of division rival Dallas 31-14 Sunday night in a play-in game for the NFC East title and a spot hosting a Wild Card round game against 10-6 Atlanta, who, combined with a Green Bay win over Detroit, locked up the No. 5 overall seed with a 45-24 win over Tampa Bay earlier in the day.

The Giants / Falcons game is tied for the smallest spread of the Wild Card weekend's four games, alongside the Bengals and Texans, who opened at Houston (-3). The Saints open as 12-point favorites hosting the Lions, while the Steelers are favored by as much as nine points heading to Denver.
