NY Giants vs. Eagles Prediction and Odds for Week 18 (Big Blue major underdogs)
Just like that, the final week of the regular season is here and the NY Giants are 9-6-1 leading up to Sunday. No one, and we mean no one expected the G-Men to have nine wins at this point and already have a trip to the postseason booked. You’ve simply got to give a ton of credit to Brian Daboll for what he’s been able to accomplish.
With that said, the Giants have nothing to play for on Sunday, other than trying to prevent Philly from grabbing the No. 1 seed in the NFC. However, Daboll isn’t going to put his players at risk of getting injured with the NFC Wild Card Round around the corner. With that said, Sunday’s outcome doesn’t matter, which is why the starters aren’t expected to receive much playing time – if any.
NY Giants vs. Eagles Odds Week 18
To no one’s surprise, the Eagles are massive favorites to record a win on Sunday, with star quarterback Jalen Hurts expected to return from his shoulder injury as well. Over in Las Vegas, the Eagles have been listed as 14-point favorites with -900 moneyline odds. That tells you that the Eagles are expected to cruise to a big-time win.
NY Giants vs. Eagles Prediction Week 18
When these two teams met earlier in the season, Philadelphia tripped to MetLife Stadium and dominated Big Blue. Hurts put on a show and so did running back Miles Sanders. The Eagles have lost two consecutive games with Hurts injured, as Gardner Minshew hasn’t been able to get the job done.
Now, though, Hurts should be good to go this weekend and he’ll power the Eagles to a dominant win – especially with NY expected to rest the majority of their starters. It should be a Philly blowout, but again, with the Giants not having much to play for, it doesn’t matter.
Prediction: Eagles 31, Giants 10
