NFL betting anticipation and excitement is high for this NFC East Division showdown as both teams are tied for the lead in the division and the winner of this matchup will have a significant NFL gambling advantage.
The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants will kickoff from Philadelphia at 8:30 PM Eastern Time on NBC. Sports-Gambling opened with the Eagles as a 3 point favorite and with an over/under of 48.5.
The Giants are coming off a bad 33-20 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys in what was a classic example of “timing is everything.” Dallas was playing its first game for interim head coach Jason Garret and played with fire and excellence.
Despite the setback the Giants have a NFL football gambling record of 6-3 straight up and 5-4 against the spread with 6 of their games going over the total. New York has paid out in 3 of their 4 road games this year with 3 of the games going over the total.
The Giants are vastly improved over last year as they rank 2nd overall in the NFL for total offense and number one in the league for total defense.
The Philadelphia Eagles have a betting on NFL football record of 6-3 straight up and 5-4 against the spread with 6 of their games going over the total. The Eagles have not been a good value at home as they have failed to pay out in 3 of their 4 games.
The Eagles impressed everyone in football with their Monday Night 59-28 blowout win at Washington in which they clearly outclassed the Redskins as quarterback Michael Vick made a Most Valuable Player Award case that may not be forgotten.
Vick passed for 333 yards and 4 touchdowns and rushed for 80 yards with 2 more touchdowns in what will go down as one of the greatest Monday Night performances of all time. Philadelphia ranks 11th overall for total defense and 3rd for total offense.
LeSean McCoy is another key component to the Eagles attack as he has 615 yards rushing as the Eagles ground game ranks 3rd in the NFL.
The underdog has paid out in 10 of the last 11 NFL betting matchups between these two rivals.
