These are my key factors for the game between New York and Philly:
The Eagles are 5-7 and Giants are 2-10.
The Giants are coming after a loss at home to the Packers by a score of 31-13.
The Eagles were upset and demoralized by the Dolphins 37-31.
The Eagles are the favorite at -9.
The over/under total is 45.
The money line is Eagles -360 and Giants +300.
The Eagles are the home team.
Eli Manning is expected to start at QB for the Giants. This is his 1st start since Week 2. He will be pressured by the Eagles defense that is ranked 20th. Carson Wentz is ranked 7th among QBs in total QBR. He has 7 interceptions and 5 fumbles lost. The Eagles are limited offensively without DeSean Jackson to stretch the field. They are not expecting Jordan Howard or Nelson Agholor to play due to injury.
The prop bets I like this week involves the passing yards of Eli Manning. Manning’s prop bet for yards is set at 249.5 and the price is -112. The under is the play. There is a prop that matches Wentz against Manning for yardage. Wentz has struggled but should throw for more yards than Eli.
I have a lean toward the Eagles with the money line. Philly has shown a tendency to play down to inferior teams. Until they win a game impressively, I would not be comfortable with the Eagles giving points to any team. I am 16-9 in my selections on NFL Monday and Thursday. I have hit my last 5 leans.
