First place is on the line in the NFC East on Sunday night with the Philadelphia Eagles favored in NFL betting against the New York Giants.
The Giants were awful last week in a loss against Dallas while the Eagles looked like the best team in the NFL in a win over Washington. The Eagles are getting much of the action from gamblers making an NFL bet based on that performance.

The Eagles looked extremely good last week with Michael Vick playing as well as any quarterback ever has. Whether he can do the same thing against the New York defense is the question in this game. Last year the Eagles won both games against the Giants as they swept the season series for the first time in five years.
You have heard all week about how great Vick was on Monday night and it I s true. He completed 20 of 28 passes for four touchdowns and 333 yards and ran for 80 yards and two touchdowns. It was a magical night for Vick and the Eagles against the Redskins. If he can continue to play at a high level the Eagles are serious Super Bowl contenders. He will get a real test on Sunday night against the NFL’s top ranked defense. They are allowing 270.2 yards per game but they did not play well last week against Dallas in a 33-20 loss.
Over the Total
The Giants are the top offensive team in the NFC averaging 409.8 yards per game while the Eagles are second at 400.2 yards per game. The Giants are led by Eli Manning who is tied for the league lead with 19 touchdowns. With the Giants scoring points in bunches and the Eagles looking better than ever this game could easily go over the total and that is the way gamblers making an NFL bet are going.
