NFL: Philadelphia Eagles - New York Giants
- Title : NFL: Philadelphia Eagles - New York Giants
I like the Eagles as the -4 home favorite, Ive seeing the market overreacting to the loss of Miles Sanders and Zach Ertz, but myidea suggest it isn't much of a loss. This line should be -5 or -5.5.The Eagles have won the last seven meetings with the Giants but only covered the spread in three of them, and the Eagles come in with all kinds of injuries to key personnel. Carson Wentz has gotten sacked an NFL-high 25 times and has the second most picks (9), but I see him hustling and trying to make stuff happen on his own, which I like. The Giants got their first win last week and looked terrible getting it. I’m on the better of the worst. Eagles to cover.. Lay it!
Tough work last weekend against Baltimore for the Eagles: QB Lamar Jackson rushed for 108 yards and one touchdown on nine carries, as Philadelphia had three sacks but failed to force any turnovers. A much better outlook awaits this week, as New York ranks tied-26th in giveaways (10) and 25th in sacks allowed (17). Additionally, the Giants ranked 31st in total offense (275.3 YPG) and scoring (16.8 PPG). The Philadelphia D/ST is tied-24th in takeaways (five) but is fourth in sacks (21), and QB Daniel Jones' propensity for fumbles makes it a strong betting proposition. Jones' final numbers against The Football Team last Sunday tell the tale of yet another underwhelming performance for the Giants' air attack with a total of 12 passes for 112 yards and a forgettable 2:5 TD:INT ratio on the season. Wentz and his teammates admirably refused to quit and put a legitimate scare into the Ravens until a game-tying two-point conversion attempt that did not work out for Philadelphia. They have a lot going in their favour in this match up against New York and with Jeffery and Jackson back in the line-up plus promising Fulgham in support, I expect them to win.
My prediction: Line - Including Overtime: Philadelphia Eagles -4.0
