Thursday Night Football brings us the battle of two one-win teams, as the New York Giants take on the Philadelphia Eagles. If you’re watching this game, you are likely a fan of one of the teams, have fantasy players you were forced to start playing, you’re Daniel Jones’ uncle or you put some cash down on this dumpster fire. And we’re here for you if you’re the latter, as we take a look at how the wagers and money are leaning tonight.
The odds favor Carson Wentz and company, as the Eagles are 4.5-point favorites at home. The point total is 45, implying 24.75 points for Philadelphia and 20.25 points for New York. So far, the Eagles are 2-4 against the spread while the Giants are 3-3. Philadelphia has gone over in four of their six matchups while the Giants have gone under in four of six.
As a 4.5-point favorite, Eagles backers are making themselves known at DraftKings Sportsbook. Betters appear to be leaning toward the Eagles, as Carson Wentz has looked better than Jones so far, but there are plenty of injury problems that Philadelphia will need to overcome.
