Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants Pick, Prediction, Opening Betting Lines: Who wins in Week 12?

With two teams going in different directions, what can we expect in this Eagles vs. Giants matchup, and what is our pick and prediction?

The New York Giants need a win in Week 12 to avoid the division slipping away from them. Unfortunately, a confident, on-form Philadelphia Eagles team awaits them in the two rivals’ first meeting of the season. What are the NFL odds for the Eagles vs. Giants Week 12 matchup, and what is our pick and prediction?

  • Spread: Eagles -3 (Odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook)
  • Moneyline: Eagles -155, Giants +150
  • Over/Under: 46.5

This season has not gone the way it should have for the Giants. The money they spent in the offseason, including an expensive WR1 in Kenny Golladay and the return of Saquon Barkley (among many other things), meant the Giants should be set up to challenge for a division that was ripe for the picking for any of the four teams in the NFC East. As we approach Week 12, the Giants find themselves at the bottom of it.

The offensive line has taken a lot of heat for the poor performances. But some of that also sits with Daniel Jones and his decision-making and a less-than-desirable offensive playbook. Coming off of a bye, the Giants had over two weeks to prepare for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football. Yet, they scored just 10 points, turned the ball over twice, and again failed to involve the key components of their offense.

Barkley’s health status is questionable, to say the least. He had 6 carries all night for a 25-yard rushing total. Golladay, meanwhile, their $72M receiver, had just 1 catch for 12 yards. Granted he’s missed time through injury, but the Giants have yet to find Golladay in the end zone.

Can the Eagles win the NFC East?

The Eagles come into this one off the back of a two-game winning streak, with nice wins over the Broncos and Saints. The run puts them right back in the conversation in the NFC East, just a game behind a Cowboys team that appears to be slowing down.

The Eagles can taste the top spot. It’s there for the taking, so they’ll be determined as ever to beat the Giants this coming Sunday.

Jalen Hurts has made it work for the Eagles and done what’s necessary to help the team win. There are still question marks around the offense, which lacks receiver depth (outside of rookie DeVonta Smith).

Philly has instead turned to tight end Dallas Goedert, who received a nice extension this past week. Miles Sanders has been great when involved (5 yards per carry) and was pivotal in a two-pronged rushing attack with Hurts, running at will on the Saints this past weekend.

Eagles vs. Giants betting trends

The Giants have cashed the under now four games in a row, confirming my disappointment in the ability of their offense and Jason Garrett as a play-caller. They’ve failed to score more than 20 points in six games this season. Considering the money and draft capital they invested into their group of receivers and Jones now in his third season, it’s not ideal. The Giants are 5-5 against the spread.

The Eagles have cashed overs in four of their last five. The offense has hit some form lately. The only reason they’re not five of five in those games? They held the Broncos to 13 points in Week 10. Philly has won their last three games as favorites this season and covered the spread in those games, too.

Eagles vs. Giants prediction

If the Eagles are on form, they should win this game. They’re trending in the right direction, and their only loss in the last four weeks came against the Chargers. This Giants team is struggling to move the ball effectively. Yes, it’s fun to throw touchdowns to your left tackle, but don’t you have highly paid weapons to throw those to?

I like the Eagles to win and pull away from the Giants. However, I also like the over. The Eagles’ defense is making some plays, but they also just gave up 29 points to a Trevor Siemian-led Saints team missing pretty much all of their offensive weapons. In other words, the Saints’ B team offense put 29 points on the board.

Eagles vs. Giants Prediction: Eagles 34, Giants 24
