My Pick: Giants -3, Over 41.5
Picks by the numbers: Philadelphia Eagles ML, Eagles +3, Over 41.5
In the first match-up between the Giants and the Eagles this season. New York Giants won 28-23. The Eagles had 42 rushing yards and 101 passing yards more than the Giants. Yet, the New York Giants won the game. Yes, Giants defense was giving up lots of yards, they were giving up very few points each quarter.
Following the numbers for this game, the safe bet is over 41.5 for the total score. Philadelphia Eagles have no stress going into this game since they’re out of the playoff hunt. They only have one reason to win this game and that’s revenge. New York Giants, on the other hand, is still fighting to be the NFC East division leaders.
Philadelphia is coming into this game on a 5 game losing streak while the Giants are on a 2 game winning streak and won 4 of their last 5 games. I fully expect to see the Giants take it to the air against the Eagles defense. The Giants defense will need to bring that same great defense against Philadelphia like they did against the Lions in week 15. The Eagles offense will need to step it up if they don’t want a repeat of week 9.
