Giants Still Have a Shot at NFC East Crown With a Win in Philly

Despite scoring over 20 points just once in their last four games, the Giants are one of the hottest teams in the NFL, winning eight of their last nine. Since their offense has been sputtering, most of their meteoric rise can be attributed to their defense, which now fourth in the defensive DVOA ratings. The G-Men will go for the season sweep of the Eagles on Thursday when they travel to Philadelphia to take them on at Lincoln Financial Field.

SHARK BITES
  • The Giants are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite of 3.0 or less.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Eagles' last 6 games at home.
  • The Giants have posted 6 straight UNDERs.

These teams last met in Week 9, when the Giants scored 28 points – their highest total of the entire season. Coincidentally, that was the last time New York was involved in a game that went over its closing total. The opening line for the 170th ever meeting between the Eagles and Giants was 42 points with New York on the right side of a 3-point spread.

The Eagles have now dropped five straight games and proved they are definitely not the darlings many people were ready to crown them as when they started the season 3-0. Carson Wentz has now lost four in a row against NFC East competition and his Eagles did not cover the spread in any of those division matchups.

With nothing but pride on the line for Philadelphia, I find it tough to fade New York but keep in mind that the Eagles always play the Giants tough and will more than likely be itching to help spoil their division title hopes. Before betting this game, remember – the Giants are just 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five games against the Eagles.
