Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants Start Time, NFL Odds, Free Pick

The New York Giants are hosting the Philadelphia Eagles in NFL Football action on Saturday. The game is scheduled for a 1:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised live on FOX. The NFL Odds for the game have the Giants favored by about a field goal to pick up the win at home.

NFL Odds
NY Giants -2.5
Total: 43 points

Eli Manning and the Giants are tied with Philadelphia in the NFC East standings, both squads come into the game with 4-3 records. The Giants have won two straight coming into this game with single possession wins over Baltimore and the LA Rams. The Giants should be rested and ready to go in this one, coming off a bye and playing the first of three straight games at home.

The Eagles, on the other hand, last played on Sunday Night Football in an overtime loss to Dallas and now have to travel on a bit of a short week. Fatigue probably won’t be a problem for an NFL team like the Eagles here, but it could play a role. Carson Wentz has looked strong for Philadelphia this rookie season, he’ll face a Giants secondary that looks to be getting healthy and should benefit from the bye week. Wentz has some history on his side for this one, the Eagles have won 13 of the last 15 meetings with the Giants and covered the number in 12 of this games.

But in order for the streak to continue Wentz and the Eagles are going to have to push the ball up the field a little better. Against Dallas the Eagles threw the football 43 times but only averaged less than five yards per attempt. The check downs will allow an offense to piece together drives but it can also minimize the big plays. Manning and the Giants will look strong coming off the bye and a rested up defense will make a difference.

Free Pick: Giants
