NFL Betting Predictions: Philadelphia Eagles vs New York Giants
The New York Giants were on a three game winning streak before losing to the 49ers 27-20 last weekend. QB Eli Manning made a few critical mistakes that cost them the Giants the win going 26/40 for 311 yards, 2 TD’s but throwing 2 crucial interceptions. RB Brandon Jacobs who complained about not getting enough carrys, did very little with the extra workload this week running 18 times for only 55 yards. WR Victor Cruz is quietly becoming a heck of a receiver in New York, against the 49ers he had 6 receptions for 84 yards.
The Giants defense didn’t play terrible against San Francisco allowing 305 total yards, 228 passing, and only 77 rushing. They held the the opposition to 4 field goals while in being left in bad field position. DE Osi Umenyiora added another sack to a solid year bringing his total to 7. CB Corey Webster snagged an interception bringing his season total to 4.
What a let down of a season for the Philadelphia Eagles after being so highly regarded this off-season. They have lost their last two games, the last against the Cardinals who had their backup QB in the game. QB Michael Vick went 16/34 for 128 yards and 2 picks, however he is injured with busted ribs and will sit out this game for Vince Young to start. LeSean McCoy had 14 carries for 81 yards and a TD with a longest of 29 yards.
The Eagles ” Dream Team” defense was chewed up by John Skelton a backup QB who has had lots of trouble putting up points in the past. Philadelphia allowed 370 total yards, 282 yards passing, and 88 rushing. They had 4 sacks and 2 interceptions but still could not put the game away.
Betting Prediction: A busted up and struggling Philadelphia Eagles team against a New York Giants team that has been playing well, and at home. This seems like easy math to me, get on the Giants before that line moves anymore, I do not expect Vince Young to come off the bench cold on a struggling team and beat the Giants on the road.
