NFL Week 14 Betting Preview for Philadelphia Eagles at New York
Eagles Look to Continue to Dominate on both sides of the ball
The Eagles have the very best record in the league this season (11-1) and are off to their finest start in franchise history. Following a 35-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, the Eagles are still regarded as the best team in the NFC East thanks to their combination of strong offense and defense.
Philadelphia became the first squad since the 1987 Raiders to amass 350+ yards running and 350+ yards passing in back-to-back weeks. The offense ranks third overall, averaging 28.2 points per game and almost 400 yards of offense each contest.
Additionally, the Eagles hold the second-best defense in the league in terms of yards allowed per game (296.4), as well as holding the top spot in takeaways with 23. They have had the most success on the road, surprisingly, as they have failed to lose a game on the road this season.
Giants hoping for Consistency, Need Upset Victory
The Giants‘ home game against Washington last week ended in a 20-20 draw, a contest that had multiple opportunities for the Giants to win; however, they walked away with a tie. Since Week Seven, they have only had one victory, and throughout those five games, they have been outscored 122-95.
On Sunday against the Washington Commanders, the New York Giants had upwards of six chances to win, but they fell short. Head Coach Brian Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka are under fire for some conservative play calling, opting for three field goal attempts and being held scoreless in the first quarter. Overall, the unit has exceeded expectations averaging 20.4 points per game.
The Giants’ defense collected five sacks and forced a fumble in their tie last week, but they will have a stiff test against the Eagles’ strong offense. New York surrendered 165 yards rushing and 4.6 yards per carry on the ground last week.
The Giants have struggled to defend the run conceding over 140 yards per game, and they face one of the league’s top rushing units when the Eagles come to town.
Betting Odds and Lines
The Philadelphia Eagles come into this matchup as the road favorites, with MyBookie listing the spread at seven points (-110). The Eagles will be -305 favorites on the moneyline, while the New York Giants will be +255 home underdogs. In terms of the Over/Under, MyBookie has listed the total at 45.5 points (-110).
This should be an interesting matchup as both teams have exceeded expectations and are playing solid football representing the NFC East. While the Eagles continue to excel, the Giants, on the other hand, have started to slow down.
The Eagles are second in overall defense and third in total offense in the NFL after 13 weeks. They have proven consistency on both sides of the ball, and that has led to back-to-back covers against the spread.
Meanwhile, New York hasn’t picked up a legitimate win since week seven against the Jaguars, and their passing game has struggled, with Daniel Jones going over the 200-yard mark in just four of their 12 games.
The Eagles have the second most sacks in the league while also leading the league in interceptions with 15. Expect the Eagles to take this one at MetLife Stadium.
NFL Betting Pick: Philadelphia Eagles -7 (-110)
