New York has won three games in a row, including a 30-20 victory over the Atlanta Falcons as four-point home favorites last week, while going UNDER the betting total of 50.5. The Giants have scored 105 points over the course of their current winning streak, which is important to consider when making your Week 6 NFL predictions, as they face one of their biggest NFC East division rivals. New York is a dangerous underdog in this spot, as the team receiving points in this series has covered the number in 15 of the last 19 meetings, while the UNDER is on a 4-0 run in games played in the City of Brotherly Love.
The Giants recent surge can be directly linked to the play of signal-caller Eli Manning, who has completed 70.1 percent of his throws over the last three games, which can’t be ignored when looking over the NFL betting lines. New York is glad to see better decision-making from its signal-caller, as Manning was coming off a 2013 campaign of throwing a career-high 27 interceptions. These two rivals have split the season series the previous three campaigns.
Philadelphia has opened up the season with a 4-1 SU and 3-2 ATS record, but it has lost the statistical battle in its last three contests, but comes in off a 34-28 victory over the St. Louis Rams as 3.5-point home favorites. The Eagles need to get a big performance out of starting running back LeSean McCoy, who has gained just 273 yards on the ground after putting up 1,607 a season ago. The former Pitt Panthers start has been held to an average of 46.3 rushing yards in his last three games in this matchup.
The Eagles haven’t clicked offensively under second-year head coach Chip Kelly in the early going, with some of the blame being placed on quarterback Nick Foles, who ranks 23rd in the league with a passer rating of 82.5 this year. Philadelphia won the division due to Foles’ play in 2013—tossing 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions in finishing with a NFL-best 119.2 rating.
Sports bettors will likely play the total, as the OVER is 7-1 in the Eagles’ last eight games after surrendering 350 or more yards in their previous contest.
