Giants vs. Eagles Prediction
Will the Giants turn around their season by upsetting their division rival, the Eagles, on the road today at 1:00PM ET?
Who: Giants (0-2) at Eagles (1-1)
When: 1:00PM ET, Sunday, September 24
Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, PA
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Philadelphia is now a 6-point home favorite to beat New York, which opened as a 3.5-point underdog when the line first opened. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 43 before climbing to 43.5.
NEW YORK GIANTS BETTING TRENDS
The Giants are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games, are 1-4 against the number in their last five games overall, and are 1-4 at the betting window in their last five conference games. They're also winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games in September.
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES BETTING TRENDS
The Eagles are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games in September, are 4-1 against the number in their last five games overall, and are 6-2 at the betting window in their last eight home games. They're also 11-5 against the spread in their last 16 games when playing in Week 3.
OUR PREDICTION: I don't like anything about the Giants offense right now. Their offensive line is a disaster, which impacts Eli Manning (who has been awful through two weeks and was awful for most of 2016), and Odell Beckham Jr. isn't 100-percent healthy despite play. That said, this is a division rivalry and the Giants are in desperation mode. The Eagles lack a running game, which impacts their ability to sustain drives at times. A lack of a running game also hurts a team's ability to salt away leads in the second half, so even if the Giants don't win outright, I love them to keep things close in Philly this afternoon.
