Football betting on Sunday includes a big game in the NFC East as the Philadelphia Eagles host the New York Giants.
The Giants are 5-2 on the season while the Eagles are 4-2. This NFL betting game has smallest pointspread of the week.
Football betting has this game being a pick with a total of 44. The Giants are coming off a loss to Arizona while the Eagles were able to get past Washington. The Eagles are hoping to have running back Brian Westbrook on Sunday. He suffered a concussion against Washington and is questionable for this week. "I know Brian’s going to want to play," head coach Andy Reid said. "But unless Brian’s tests come back to where they’re in a position where he can play, then we won’t do that."
The Giants started the season very strongly but they have not played well lately. Last week against Arizona they made a number of mistakes and lost as a big football betting favorite. Quarterback Eli Manning was intercepted three times by the Cardinals. If he throws an interception against the Eagles then the Giants could be in trouble in football betting. The Giants are 25-25 when Manning throws at least one interception while they are 22-6 when he does not.
Normally you might give the edge to the Giants since the Eagles played on Monday night but the NFL betting trends don’t support New York in that situation. Since 1990, the Giants are 7-13 against teams that played the previous Monday night.
New York’s defense is still #1 in the league in yards allowed at 262 yards per game but they have fallen to 16th in scoring defense, allowing 20.4 points a game.
