Giants vs Eagles Betting Analysis
Entering Week 7, these teams have combined for two wins. And yet, both are still in the thick of things in the NFC East. While the Giants are in the midst of a rebuild under new head coach Joe Judge, the Eagles are not. Sitting at 1-4-1, Philadelphia desperately needs this game to right the ship.
Indeed, this shapes up as a "get right" game for the Eagles as they have now won six straight games against the Giants at Lincoln Financial Field. Expect the Eagles to win this game and improve to 2-4-1 on the season and bet on it with Unibet.

The spread is a little trickier. The Eagles open as a touchdown favorite despite going 2-5 against the spread over their previous seven games. Although the Giants are 1-5 on the season, they are 3-2 against the spread. It’s also worth noting they have now covered in six straight games on the road and are 4-2 ATS in their last six games against the Eagles.
But can the Giants’ offense muster up enough points to stay competitive in this game? We say no. The Giants' biggest concern has to be their offensive line, which has struggled mightily this season. Arguably the best part of Philadelphia's roster has been a defensive line that creates pressure on opposing quarterbacks.
Considering how much Daniel Jones has struggled with pressure this season, it seems likely he will turn the ball over a few times in this game. It's hard to envision the Giants being able to sustain long drives against the Eagles' defense. New York just doesn't match up well with Philadelphia, and it could be a long day for this offense.
Look for the Giants to stay competitive initially, but for the Eagles to ultimately pull away in the second half by a few scores. New York just doesn’t have the pass rush to threaten Carson Wentz, and he should be able to score 23 or 24 points in this contest, at least. Take Philadelphia to cover this spread with confidence at DraftKings.

As far as the point total goes, both offenses have been incredibly inconsistent this season. The Giants have been especially bad, scoring an average of 1.3 touchdowns per game this season. If not for a defensive score against Washington in Week 6, they would have scored just 13 points again.
Philadelphia has the potential to be better on offense, but injuries to their offensive line and receiving corps hinder the production. Expect this to be a low-scoring game with neither side even approaching 30 points. Take the under at FOX Bet. Neither QB will light up the scoreboard.
