Because of some COVID-19 rescheduling, there was no Thursday night NFL game in Week 6. It’s back this week, if not a very appealing matchup, as the New York Giants visit the NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles, who are 6-point favorites on the NFL odds. The total opened at 45.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

No team has repeated in the NFC East since the Eagles won the division a fourth straight year in 2004, but their chances got much better of repeating with Cowboys star QB Dak Prescott going down with a season-ending injury in Week 5. The Giants and Washington Football Team both stink, so it’s either going to be Philly or Dallas winning the East – perhaps with a losing record.

The Giants haven’t been good since 2016 so not a huge surprise they are on a seven-game losing streak in this series. The first meeting last year was in Philadelphia on a Monday night and the Eagles won 23-17 in overtime. That was the second-to-last start in the Giants career of now-retired New York QB Eli Manning. He had two TD passes to Darius Slayton. Carson Wentz threw for 325 yards and two scores.

New York lost at home to Philadelphia in Week 17 last year, 34-17. That would prove to the final game as Giants coach for Pat Shurmur.

The teams have split the past 10 meetings against the spread and the over-under is 7-3 in those.

New York Giants

The Giants got new head coach Joe Judge his first NFL win on Sunday, 20-19 over a bad Washington Football Team. Washington scored with less than a minute left and Coach Ron Rivera opted to go for the two-point PAT and win. It failed. Mr. Irrelevant of the 2020 NFL Draft, Giants linebacker Tae Crowder, had a 43-yard fumble return for a touchdown.

New York QB Daniel Jones threw for only 112 yards with a TD and a pick and led the team with 74 yards rushing. Jones now has committed at least one turnover in 17 of 18 career starts. He is 3-0 in his career vs. Washington and 1-14 vs. all other teams. Top wideout Slayton was in question with a foot injury. He did play and clearly wasn’t 100 per cent but had a TD catch.

Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia lost 30-28 at home to Baltimore on Sunday. The Eagles were dominated for three quarters in being outscored 24-6 but found their offence in the fourth. QB Carson Wentz scored on a 1-yard run with just under two minutes to go, but he was stuffed on the two-point conversion try. Wentz at least didn’t throw any picks for the first time this season, but he was battered again behind a patchwork offensive line with six sacks.

Running back Miles Sanders and top tight end Zach Ertz both left with injuries and both were to have MRIs on Monday. The concern is greater for Sanders so it seems somewhat likely he misses at least this game. Boston Scott would be the Eagles’ lead back. Pro Bowl offensive tackle Lane Johnson and wideouts DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery all missed the game due to injuries.
