Hurts Expected Back for the Eagles

Giants Looking To Hand Eagles Another Loss

All eyes will be on Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts. He has missed the last two games with a shoulder injury and the Eagles have lost both games.

Philadelphia has gone from leading the way in the race for a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs to only leading Dallas by a game in the NFC East.

The Giants were wise to wrap up a playoff spot last week because needing to win at Philadelphia to get into the postseason would be risky.

The Giants having offensive linemen Joshua Ezeudu and Shane Lemieux out for the game is not ideal for the Giants dealing with one of the better pass-rushing teams in the NFL. There are also questions in the secondary that could open up space for Philadelphia receivers A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith.

Hurts is listed as probable. However, Philadelphia’s top rusher Miles Sanders is questionable as is defensive end Josh Sweat.

The Eagles (+550) are tied for third in the odds to win the Super Bowl according to the NFL playoff odds while the Giants come in 13th at +6500.

Let’s check the latest NFL odds, stats, injury reports, and NFL lines for Giants vs Eagles. We’ve plenty of Vegas NFL odds and NFL week 18 picks for you to consider.

Giants vs Eagles Betting Lines

Giants Eyeing Double Digits

Not even the most ardent Giants fan could have envisioned New York heading into the regular-season finale already in the playoffs and with a chance to pick up the 10th win of the season.

The Giants bounced back from losing to Minnesota on a 61-yard field goal on the final play to dominating the Indianapolis Colts to punch their ticket into the postseason.

Quarterback Daniel Jones led the way with two touchdown passes and two more scoring runs. Don’t look for him to run nearly as much this week with the playoffs right around the corner.

Win or lose, the Giants are locked into the No. 6 seed so perhaps the snap counts will be limited for some players in this game.

Five of the Giants’ last seven games finished over the Las Vegas odds total.

Eye on the Prize

A few weeks ago Hurts was being talked about as the front-runner for the MVP award and the Eagles were on the verge of securing the top record in the NFL. Now the Eagles want to win to earn that top seed and snap a two-game losing streak.

Injuries to Hurts and Sanders are not ideal for a team with their eyes on a Super Bowl run.

With the Cowboys and 49ers also having late Sunday afternoon kickoffs, there won’t be any clarity on what needs to happen if the Eagles were to lose on Sunday. Obviously, a win by Philadelphia ends the drama.

Look for more balance on offense after the Eagles ran the ball 15 times and threw it on 32 occasions in last week’s loss to New Orleans. In the season’s first meeting against the Giants, the Eagles ran the ball 31 times and attempted 31 passes.

Philadelphia has failed to cover against the NFL betting lines in six of its last nine games.

It was the second straight game in the series to go over the total after five of the previous six contests all finished under the total.

The Eagles have won eight straight home games against the Giants although five of those were decided by six points or less.

Giants vs Eagles Picks and Prediction

Predicted Score: Eagles 27, Giants 24

  • Worth Betting on the Moneyline?

There isn’t going to be much of an incentive to go with the favored Eagles as they are priced at -900 to complete the season sweep of the Giants. That number has already moved after opening at -850 and more movement could take place depending on the availability of Hurts and Sanders.

  • Worth Betting ATS?

Yes, the Eagles led the Giants 48-14 before a late New York touchdown in the final minute when the teams played a few weeks ago. Still, the 14-point line in favor of Philadelphia seems a bit on the high side.

Money has been pouring in on the Giants so keep an eye on the line. It won’t be surprising to see the Eagles pick up their 14th win of the season but expect a much closer game than in the previous matchup. Keep in mind that the Giants have covered six of their seven road games this season.

  • Worth Betting on the Totals?

The total opened at 40½ but with those who bet online jumping all over that, it has since moved to 43. Even that could be a bit on the low side so don’t be surprised at all to see at least 50 points scored in this game.

Thanks to one of the top offenses in the NFL, 10 of the Eagles’ first 16 games finished over the total and that has happened six times in eight home games.
