NFL Betting Predictions: New York Giants vs Philadelphia Eagles

Sunday at 1pm the New York Giants travel to Lincoln Financial Field to take on the Philadelphia Eagles. sportsbook currently have the Eagles as a large -420 favorite giving up -8 1/2 points to the Giants.


The New York Giants offense looked pretty good last week against the St Louis Rams with Eli Manning throwing 19 completions on 30 attempts for 223 yards, 2TD’s adn 1 INT. The running game did not show up to play with RB Ahmad Bradshaw running 15 times for 59 yards, and Brandon Jacobs running 16 times for 50 yards and a TD. Between the two backs getting 109 yards on 31 carries is not very efficient. Also the Giants have huge problems with the recent injuries to receivers Domenik Hixon and Mario Manningham. I just dont see Manning playing fairly well with his only receiving threat being Hakeem Nicks and a underachieving running game.

The Giants defense did pretty well (besides the opening drive where they had 2 players feign injury simulatenously to stop a no huddle drive). The Giants defense allowed only 16 points all game, and besides getting beat badly on a 68 yard completion by Sam Bradford they played hard and effectively all game. They only allowed 1 rushing first down on only 59 rushing yards, where they got beat up at all was the passing game allowing 308 passing yards.

The Philadelphia Eagles offense was rolling last week untill QB Michael Vick was hurt in a freak collision that cannot be chalked up as an inability to take a hit. Vick last week threw 18 completions on 28 attempts for 242 yards, 2 TD and 1 INT. Vick has participated all week in practice and will infact play against the Giants. LeSean McCoy showed for a small back he can still run for some nice gains while catching passes coming out of the backfield. McCoy rushed 18 times for 95 yards and 2 TD’s and grabbed 4 receptions for 21 yards.


The Eagles defense is what let their team down in last weeks loss against the Falcons. The offense had done more than enough to win this game being up by 10 late in the 3rd Quarter. The Eagles elite secondary just could not stopped a possessed QB Matt Ryan and RB Michael Turner determined to their team in the win column. Matt Ryan threw 17 completions for 195 yards and 4 TD’s 2 INT’s against this elite secondary while getting hit with a heavy pass rush all game. Turner rushed 21 times for 114 yards and 1 TD. Needless to say I think the Eagles defense and especially the secondary play much better against Giants Eli Manning who has been known to throw a few INT’s and especially with a banged up receiving core.

My Predictions: I like the Eagles to win and something tells me they are going to cover this large spread of -8 1/2 points. The Giants loss of two of their best receivers change this game , and especially the line.

Fantasy Football Player Of The Game: I think with the way Vick played last week combined with the way the Giants passing defense also played last week. That Vick is a great start for this game , along with WR DeSean Jackson.
