Eagles vs Giants Betting Analysis
Philadelphia Tries to Stay Perfect on the Road
Nothing demonstrates the toughness of a team more than the ability to win on the road. The Philadelphia Eagles not only have the best record in the NFL, but they are the only team with a perfect record away from home. That mark will be tested when Philadelphia heads up I-95 to face their division rivals.
The New York Giants have won the last two times Philadelphia came to MetLife Stadium, winning a pair of low-scoring affairs. It should be noted that the 7½-point line in favor of the Eagles is the highest for Philadelphia in its trips to East Rutherford, N.J., since a 2017 game won by the Eagles 34-29.
The Giants have allowed at least 160 rushing yards while going 0-2-1 over their last three games and now face the No. 5 rushing team in the NFL.
Philadelphia is 2-1 against NFC East teams and the Giants are 0-2-1 in the division heading into the first of two meetings between the division rivals in the next five weeks.
Keep an eye on the status of Philadelphia’s second-leading tackler Kyzir White and fourth-leading receiver Quez Watkins, who are both questionable. Defensive backs Darnay Holmes and Adoree’ Jackson, defensive lineman Leonard Williams and receiver Richie James are questionable for the Giants.
Per the NFL playoff odds, the Eagles (+200) have the best odds to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. The Giants (+5000) are tied for seventh in the NFC championship odds.

Eagles vs Giants Betting Lines
While most of the eyes will be on dynamic Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts, it could be a special afternoon for two other offensive stars.
Running back Miles Sanders needs 76 yards to hit the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his five seasons with the Eagles. A.J. Brown, acquired in the offseason, is 50 receiving yards shy of 1,000, a plateau he has hit in two of his three seasons with the Tennessee Titans.
Even without star tight end Dallas Goedert, the numbers by Sanders and Brown demonstrate how challenging it is to slow down the Eagles on offense. DeVonta Smith is tied with Brown for the team lead with 61 catches, Hurts has 609 rushing yards and nine scoring runs while Kenneth Gainwell has produced when given the ball as well. Hurts has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week in each of the last two weeks.
Guess who’s back? Back again? Congrats to @JalenHurts for back-to-back NFC Offensive Player of the Week!#ProBowlVote | #FlyEaglesFly https://t.co/WKCeEpPVA4 pic.twitter.com/9DsIYrrgbU

The offense could be even more dangerous if receiver Watkins is able to go. Although with the recent struggles by the Giants to stop the run, it won’t be surprising to see this become a rush-heavy game plan.
The NFL betting lines total has gone over in six of the Eagles’ last seven games.

Now or Never
These are anxious times for fans of the New York Giants.
The Giants have the fifth-best record in the NFC, but the next three games come against teams with a combined record of 28-8-1. There have been some defensive issues emerging in recent weeks and the offense just isn’t explosive enough to overcome those flaws.
The Giants made Taylor Heinecke look pretty good as he threw for 275 yards and the Washington Commanders outgained the Giants in last week’s 20-20 tie. New York did sack the Washington quarterback five times and getting pressure on Hurts will be of paramount importance.
New York’s conservative offensive play-calling worked earlier in the season. However, running back Saquon Barkley is finding it more challenging to find running lanes with teams bringing defensive backs up near the line of scrimmage to slow down Barkley while daring quarterback Daniel Jones to make plays down the field.
The Giants have covered against the Las Vegas odds in four of their last five home games.

Eagles vs Giants Picks & Prediction
Predicted Score: Eagles 31, Giants 24
- Worth Betting on the Moneyline?
If this game was played four weeks ago, it might have been tempting to go with the underdog Giants. However, the poor form since that time would make taking the Giants at +250 to spring the upset pretty risky. Maybe going with the Eagles as part of a parlay would work. Otherwise, there won’t be much of a payoff with the moneyline at -300 for the Eagles.
- Worth Betting ATS?
The Giants have played seven games decided by seven points or less and three others finished as eight-point spreads, so taking the Giants to cover as +7 underdogs isn’t the worst way to proceed.
Something for those who bet online to consider: Five of Philadelphia’s last seven games have been decided by double digits.
- Worth Betting on the Totals?
Just one of the last six games in the series would have gone over the 45-point total. However, both teams are dealing with injuries on defense so this has a chance to be a game where the offenses get the upper hand. The total opened at 43½ and has moved to 45.
Other than a low-scoring affair with the Colts, the recent games for the Eagles have been right around or even over the 45-point mark.
This has the feel of a game that could finish in the 50s so going with the over is a smart way to proceed.
