Eagles vs. Giants Free Pick
Following a week of turmoil, the Eagles will wrap up their season today as a road underdog versus the Giants at 1:00PM ET.
Philadelphia is currently a 5.5-point dog for today's game according to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag. As for the total, it opened at 51.5 points before dropping to 51.
The Giants enter play with a 6-9 record but are 8-6-1 against the spread, while the Eagles are 6-9 both straight up and against the number. Our NFL public betting page shows that 69% of the point spread wagers have been placed on New York -3.5.
Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie apparently couldn't wait one week to fire Chip Kelly and get him out of the building. That should tell you everything you need to know about what kind of state the Eagles are in right now. They showed little fight the past two weeks in losses to the Cardinals (40-17) and Redskins (38-24) in back-to-back primetime appearances.
The Giants had zero interest in competing themselves last week, as they were embarrassed by the Vikings on Sunday Night Football. But perhaps players will fight hard one last time for Tom Coughlin, who could be coaching in his last game today. Plus, with Odell Beckham back from a one-game suspension, the Giants should move the ball consistently on offense.
