Giants vs Eagles picks: point spread, total, player props and trends for Thursday night football in Week 7

The Philadelphia Eagles have done everything wrong this season, a tough starting schedule to tackle the mountain of injuries on the offensive side of the ball and start the season with just one win through six games. The New York Giants have done everything wrong in their season, losing their best offensive player to injury early in the season and winning just one win through six matches under new coach Joe Judge in the first season I struggled to establish my footing.

Despite all this, both teams are in the thick of the NFC East divisional race, which currently has 2-4 Dallas Cowboys at the front of the pack. You know what happens in the story of the turtle and the hare, but who comes out on top in the race between the four turtles? Tonight’s matchup can go a long way towards determining that.

Giants in the Eagles (-4.5)

The line reopened at Eagles -5.5 on Sunday night and quickly collided to -6, but Philadelphia’s continuing injury issues, including the inclusion of Miles Sanders and Zac Ertz for this game, would have them all the way until Monday afternoon Dropped to -3.5. The line was too short for the market, as it climbed half a point on Tuesday and half a point on Wednesday.

A big positive for the Giants is their ability to stay away from MetLife, as they are seven straight covers away from the stadium. They are also 15-4 ATS on the road in the last three seasons, marking the best in the NFL. However, Doug Pederson has been unstoppable on Thursday, going 5-0 SU and ATS on that day of the week in his career. Another plus for the Eagles: Daniel Jones is 0-3 ATS in primetime in his career. The Eagles have won seven straight games against the Giants, but according to CBS Sports Research, there are just 3-4 ATS during that stretch.

Pick: Eagles-4.5. I have been impressed with the resilience of the Eagles offense this year. Yes, they are 1-5, but they gave up 25-plus points in three straight games against the 49ers, Steelers and Ravens with offense at Carson Wentz, Jason Kelsey and It’s Always Sunny of Philadelphia. It appears that Len Johnson is trying this and can knock it out, but the Eagles O-line may be a problem here. But if they can hold a rally together against the Ravens, they should not have a point of doing so against the Giants. On the other side of the ball, the Giants have their own offensive line issues on tackle and I have little confidence in them constantly rolling the ball. So I’ll take the Eagles here, but it’s about the numbers where I think it should be if it’s not a strong play.

Over / under 45 points

It ended a similar story, opening and spreading at a total of 45, gradually dropping to 43.5, hitting 45 again by Wednesday evening, before slowly working its way up.

Pick: Less than 45. This year these teams have been better defended offensively, and while the money seemed to be lacking early in the season, the Under 6 was showing a 10-4 lead back to Week 6. So I feel a little better about playing the Unders in places where they make sense, as I think it does with the position of these offensive lines here.

Player support

Daniel jones

O / u 20.5 perfection
O / u 34.5 attempts
O / U 231.5 passing yard
O / U 1.5 Passing TDS (Under-170)
O / U 0.5 intercept (greater than -180)
O / U 28.5 rushing yards

While the 231.5 passing yard seems like a really low number, it is one we should consider taking under. Jones has not topped that total since 2 weeks, and the Eagles pass crowd must make it difficult for him all night. He is only three passing TDS in a full year and just one since Week 1, so at 1.5 would be worth considering as well. Jones has rolled at least 45 rushing yards in three of his last four games and Philadelphia struggled to contain Lamar Jackson last week, so a 28.5-plus rising yard could be the strongest game of the bunch.

Carson Wentz

O / u 22.5 perfection
O / u 34.5 attempts
O / U 244.5 Passing Yards
O / U 1.5 Passing TDS (Under-125)
O / U 0.5 interception (under-145)
O / U 17.5 rushing yards

Start this race overall, as Wentz topped that number in five of his six matches this year. Remember that the Eagles will be without Sanders, so Wentz may have to build as many yards on the ground as he would otherwise. Overall 34.5 attempts also look like a strong game as he regularly threw the ball over that entire year. While this matchup may be different if they can gain an edge against a poor team, it is also possible that the Eagles dial more short passes along the offensive line in their star back sideline and taters as an extension of the run game.

Support for more consideration

DeSean Jackson with more than 34.5 yards

The Eagles are taking shots downfield despite their issues on the O-line, and Wentz has connected on long passes of at least 35 yards in his last three games. With John Hightower dealing with drops, isn’t Jackson the right candidate to take back that deep role in his first game? I don’t think he even has to play the entire game to hit this number, and whenever he is on the field the goal should be there.

More than Travis Fulgham 4.5 Welcome (-120)

Fulgham has become the focal point of the passing offense over the past two weeks, reaching 16 receptions on 23 goals over that period. The loss of Sanders and Zach Ertz to Jackson is more than balanced in this offense. I think Fulgham will be the Eagles lean man on Thursday night in the short and intermediate section of the field, and it seems more likely to hit five receptions if it doesn’t.

Darius Slayton 49.5 receiving yards

It might be a bit counter-productive – who else is going to throw Jones? But Slayton remained limited in practice all week due to a foot injury, and this could limit his effectiveness against a solid Eagles secondary. I expect the Giants to pay more attention to feeding Evan Engram, while Slayton is mostly kept in check.
