Will Nick Foles be the Eagles’ savior vs Giants in Week 15?

Philadelphia backers and fans could be heard weeping across the state of Wentzylvania on Sunday after star quarterback Carson Wentz went down with an ACL tear. Many experts and analysts expected the Eagles to fly to the Super Bowl as they were the toast of the NFL at 11-2 SU and 10-3 ATS. All of those dreams now rest with retread quarterback Nick Foles as they land at MetLife Stadium to face the horrendous New York Giants in Week 15. Philly opened as an 8-point favorite to get the victory.

SHARK BITES
  • The Eagles are 6-1 SU in their last seven games against the Giants.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Eagles’ last four games against the Giants.
  • Nick Foles was 2-0 SU for the Kansas City Chiefs last season.

The Eagles are very familiar with this scenario as they’ve had backup quarterbacks come in to save the day when their signal-caller goes down with an injury. And Nick Foles is no stranger to this platform in the City of Brotherly Love. Philly fans can recall his heroics in the 2013 season when he threw for 27 touchdowns and only two interceptions. Bettors should exercise caution if they expect Foles to carry them to the promised land, but for this game, fire away as the Eagles are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games and their talent alone should push them past their divisional foe.

What more is there to say about the Giants? The once-proud franchise has had drama, losing streaks, coaches fired and injuries across the board. They got spanked by the Cowboys in Week 14 and allowed Dak Prescott to pass for over 330 yards, his highest yardage total of the season. This is typical of the Giants defense, which has allowed over 278 yards passing per game (ranked 29th) and over 131 yards rushing (ranked 31st). Even with Wentz out of the picture, the other facets of the Eagles team should crush New York.

The total opened at 40 points and the OVER could be a decent wager. Although Philly will be trotting out a backup quarterback, the team still averages over 30 points per game and the total has gone OVER in 10 of the Eagles’ last 13 games vs NFC East teams.
