The New York Giants host NFC East division rival Philadelphia at MetLife Stadium for this Week 14 grudge match. The Giants enter as underdogs versus the Eagles in the betting odds.
New York continues an NFC East-heavy stretch of their schedule by welcoming the Eagles to town in Week 14. This marks the first time these two teams face each other this season and this game carries with it some serious playoff implications. The Giants enter this one as underdogs versus the Eagles in the betting odds despite being the home team.
The Giants (7-4-1, 9-3 ATS) find themselves clinging to an NFC Wild Card spot following the team’s 20-20 tie with the Washington Commanders in Week 13. The tie stopped New York’s two-game losing streak and helped maintain a slim, half-game advantage over the Commanders in the standings. Should the Giants fall this week, that sets up a pivotal Week 15 battle with Washington where both teams would enter with the same record.
The NFC-leading Philadelphia Eagles (11-1, 7-5 ATS) also see this game with playoff positioning on the line. The Eagles have only a one-game lead for the top seed, and a loss to the G-Men would place additional pressure on Philly’s Week 16 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys.
Here’s a look at the best betting odds for this grudge match between the Giants and Eagles.
Best Betting Odds for New York Giants vs Philadelphia Eagles
The opening lines for this contest set the Eagles as 6.0-point favorites on the road, and that figure has ticked up at most sportsbooks to either 6.5 or 7.0 at this point. That said, when the Giants have played as Moneyline underdogs of at least +140, they’re 4-0 outright. What’s more, home underdogs sport a 43-33-3 mark against the spread this season.
The point total for this game started at 44.5 at most sportsbooks, slightly above to the 2022 NFL season scoring average of 44.0 points-per-game. Action has pushed the total to 45 or 45.5 at some sportsbooks, which makes it one of the higher totals this week.
NFL Week 14 Preview: New York Giants vs Philadelphia Eagles
The Giants slipped into a regrettable slump at the wrong time of the season. New York hasn’t won a game since mid-November and now faces the class of the conference. The Eagles enter this one second in the league in scoring (28.2 points-per-game) and third in total yards per game (388.3). New York’s slump over the last five weeks has resulted in the G-Men scoring just 19 points-per-game.
New York will need to stiffen its run defense to have a shot in this one. The Giants surrender 5.1 yards-per-carry this season, third-most in the NFL. Philadelphia ranks fifth in the league in rushing yards-per-game (154.6) and comes to this contest just two weeks removed from a 363 rushing yards performance.
Giants edge rushers Kayvon Thibodeaux and Azeez Ojulari combined for two sacks, four quarterback hits, a forced fumble and 11 total pressures against Washington in Week 13. They’ll need to duplicate that performance against Philadelphia to help keep things close. But lane discipline will be key against a dual-threat quarterback like Jalen Hurts.
Betting Trends Affect Giants, Eagles Odds
Several betting trends affect the odds in this key matchup between the Giants and Eagles. New York holds a 5-2 advantage against the spread in their last seven games against the Eagles. That said, Philadelphia enters having won nine of the last 11 matchups in this series outright.
