Before the season began, this was a marquee Thursday Night Football game. Carson Wentz and the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles facing Odell Beckham, Eli Manning, Saquan Barkley, and the New York Giants.
The Eagles are 2-3 while the Giants are 1-4. Both teams are likely to miss the playoffs but is there a team you should bet on in this tilt?

Why Bet The Eagles To Beat The Giants
A visit to the Big Apple to face the Giants is an excellent cure for the 2-3 Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl hangover.
A year after scoring 24+ points in 12 games last season, the Eagles have scored fewer than 24 points in each of their first five games. Moreover, Philly’s three losses have been by six, three and two points, respectively.
Week 6 marks Carson Wentz’s fourth game back from his 2017 season-ending knee injury. He should have shaken the rust off by now. RB Jay Ajayi joined fellow rushers Darren Sproles (hamstring) and Corey Clement (quad) on the injury report today. Reports suggest Ajayi tore his ACL Sunday. Expect Wentz to throw early and often.
Why Bet The Giants To Beat The Eagles
The New York Giants finally broke out of their offensive funk by putting up 31-points against a tough Panthers defense. If not for a 63-yard field with one second remaining on Sunday, the G-Men would be 2-3 instead of 1-4.
Three of the Giants’ four losses have been by seven points or less. That makes covering the 3-point spread an exciting proposition.
Eagles vs. Giants NFL Week 6 Betting Predictions

The Giants are 1-4 and winless at home.

The Eagles are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 head-to-head games against the New York Giants. That ATS record is 8-3 favoring Philly when they play in New York.
All NFL betting trends point to an Eagles win, but can they cover the one field-goal spread as road favorites? No! I am betting on the Giants with the points.
