Once upon a time, the Giants were known as a perennial playoff team. Eli Manning was the undisputed leader at quarterback. Tom Coughlin ruled the sidelines as a coach with an iron fist. Most important of all Big Blue won two Super Bowl championships. New York has seen its marquee and NFL betting Fortunes change dramatically in recent years. Namely, Pat Shurmur is no equal to Coughlin as a head coach. And raw rookie quarterback Daniel Jones is nowhere close to Manning’s level at his prime. A legacy franchise is floundering like an expansion team as a result.

New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles Overview
Philadelphia has an online betting record of 5-7 straight up, 4-8 against the spread with 6-6 on totals. Last week the Eagles lost at Miami 37-31 as 10.5-point chalks. The 2017 Super Bowl champions rank 16th for scoring offense and 20th for points allowed. Namely Head coach Doug Pederson is justifiably under fire for the inconsistent play. Losing at a bad Miami team is definitely the low point of the season.
By contrast the Giants 2-10 straight up, 4-8 on the board, 7-5 over the total. New York lost at home to Green Bay 31-13 on Sunday. Overall the Giants rank 25th for scoring offense and 29th for points allowed. Head coach Pat Shurmur is looking like a dead man walking as far as his coaching prospects beyond this year.
