Giants and Eagles in Must Win Mode
Week twelve of the season is filled with NFL rivalry games. One of those is the 3-7 New York Giants and the 4-6 Philadelphia Eagles. The Giants head down I-95 for a NFC East tilt with playoff implications. The game is a 1 p.m. start at Lincoln Financial Field on FOX.
The Eagles are listed as 4.5-point favorites and the total line has been set at 48.5 points.
The Giants have been able to string together a pair of straight-up victories. They were against San Francisco on the road and Tampa Bay at home. The total went OVER 54 points in Sunday’s 38-35 win against the Buccaneers. The game that ended as a PUSH.
The score has now gone OVER BetAnySports’ closing line in four of New York’s last six games. The Giants are 4-5-1 against the spread overall, but they have covered in four of five road games this season.
This will be the second meeting this season for these teams. The Giants found themselves on the wrong end of a 34-13 loss to Philadelphia at home on Oct. 11 as 1.5-point underdogs. Veteran NFL quarterback Eli Manning came under fire for his play in that first meeting.
Manning was able to complete 17 of his 18 passing attempts against Tampa Bay on Sunday for 231 yards and two touchdown throws. Rookie running back Saquon Barkley added another 142 yards and two scores on the ground on 27 rushing attempts.
Eagles Have had Disappointing Season So Far
Philadelphia’s disappointing Super Bowl title defense went from bad to worse. Sunday’s 48-7 no-show against New Orleans was the low point of the season. They were listed as a seven-point road underdog.
The Eagles’ slipped to 4-6 SU with a 3-7 record ATS. They are 1-4 ATS at home this season and 2-6 ATS when closing as favorites. The total stayed UNDER 56.5 points in Sunday’s loss and it has stayed UNDER in three of their last four games.
The Eagles had been competitive in their first nine games this season win or lose. The multiple issues with this year’s squad were fully exposed against the high-powered Saints. Most notably, an offense that cannot sustain drives due to an inconsistent running game. Philadelphia’s defense has some major gaps in the secondary which could pose some issues in this Sunday’s matchup.
Despite the Eagles’ poor play, they are still just two games off the pace in the wide-open NFC East title race. The Giants could be just what they need to get things back on track with a SU win that covers the 4.5-point spread.
