Giants vs. Eagles MNF Prediction
The point spread in tonight’s Monday Night Football matchup between the Giants and Eagles has climbed a full point and a half in favor of Philadelphia. Is that too many points to lay with a struggling Eagles squad?
159 New York Giants (+9.5) at 160 Philadelphia Eagles (-9.5); O/U 44.5
8:15 p.m. ET, Monday, December 9
Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, PA
According to our NFL Public Betting Chart page, the Giants are drawing 58% of the betting tickets ahead of tonight’s game.
New York Giants Fantasy Spin
Evan Engram (foot) has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Eagles. Engram was trending towards playing, but he'll end up missing his fourth straight game. It's great news for an Eagles secondary that was already set up well in an Eli Manning spot start. With Rhett Ellison (concussion) also out, Kaden Smith will continue to have an every-down role.
Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Spin
Nelson Agholor (knee) will be a game-time decision for Week 14 against the Giants. Agholor was expected to get in limited reps Saturday but ended up missing his third straight practice. He looks on the wrong side of questionable, but the Eagles will take his status all the way to game-time. Dallas Goedert and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside would see increased targets if Agholor sits.
The Giants are 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 road games and are 9-2 against the number in their last 11 games as a road underdog.
The Eagles are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 Monday Night Football games but are just 2-5 against the number in their last seven games overall.
NFL Week 14 Prediction
The Eagles opened as 8-point favorites but the line moved to 9.5. Eli Manning is a downgrade from Daniel Jones, who has more mobility and a stronger arm than the veteran. Even though Philadelphia struggled defensiely last week in South Beach, I like the Eagles to rebound as long as they can contain Saquon Barkley. And after Carson Wentz and the Philly offense looked like it figured some things out versus the Dolphins, I don’t see the Giants keeping pace tonight.
NFL WEEK 14 PREDICTION: PHILADELPHIA EAGLES -9.5
