The Giants and Eagles will round out Week 14 in the NFL on Monday night in what is a massive game for Philadelphia. As usual, we have a full preview for the game as well as our best betting pick for the marquee time slot clash!
New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles
Monday, 8.15pm, Lincoln Financial Field
With the Cowboys loss to the Bears on Thursday night, the race for the NFC east is wide open once again. While the Giants are no hope at 2-10 on the season, the Eagles are right in the mix and need only win this game to level their record with Dallas.
The Eagles have lost their last three games in a row, two of which were respectable losses to the Patriots and Seahawks. Their season hit a low point in Week 13 though, when they went down to the Miami Dolphins on the road, allowing 37 points as Ryan Fitzpatrick put up 365 yards and three touchdowns.
The NFC East has been a downright joke this season but Philly have a golden opportunity to swoop in and win the division here. Their last four games of the season come against the Giants, Redskins, Cowboys and the Giants again. If they can win on Monday and win against the Cowboys in Week 16, it should be enough to secure the division.
The Eagles have been deplorable against the spread this season, maintaining a 4-8 record overall and 2-4 at home. They have failed to cover in their last three games.
The Giants have had a season to forget. Outside of the Bengals, they have the worst record in the NFL at just 2-10 and are just 4-8 against the spread. Their defense has been deplorable of late, allowing 30.25 points per game over their last eight.
The Giants were punished by the Packers at home in Week 13, allowing 31 points as Aaron Rodgers threw for four touchdowns. They have been just as bad on the road this season, maintaining a 1-5 record straight away from MetLife Stadium.
The over has hit in 7 of the Giants 12 games this season, mostly due to their extremely leaky defense.
Can’t get enough of the Eagles this week. As inconsistent as they have been this season, there is absolutely no way they lose this game at home with so much on the line. A win on Monday night keeps them in the hunt for the NFC East and they’ll be taking no chances.
