Giants vs. Eagles: The best bets for this Saturday night NFL Divisional…

Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts and the Eagles have beaten their NFC East rival New York Giants twice during the regular season.

The question everyone is asking as the Philadelphia Eagles prepare to host the New York Giants in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs this Saturday night is: How healthy is Jalen Hurts?

The Eagles quarterback missed two games with a shoulder injury before returning in the season finale – against the Giants. In that 22-16 Week 18 win, Hurts threw for 229 yards, completing 20 of 35 attempts and no touchdowns. He also threw an interception and rushed nine times for 13 yards.

Not exactly the performance the one-time MVP forward showed before he got hurt.

Hurts, however, says he “feels good” going into Saturday’s 8:15 p.m. kickoff, which will be broadcast on FOX.

Hurts is 14-1 as a starter this season for Philly, who lost the two games he missed – to the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints.

Now that he’s back, will the Eagles return to the form that earned them the NFC’s No. 1 seed?

And the No. 6 seeded Giants will have a lot to say about that answer, as they pick up their first playoff win in 11 years after beating the Minnesota Vikings, 31-24, on Last Sunday in the Wild Card round.

The Eagles are 7.5 point favorites Saturday night at home.

The Eagles are making their fifth playoff appearance in the last six years and are looking for their first postseason win since the 2018 Wild Card round.

FrontPageBets takes a look at three best bets for this NFC playoff game against two East Division rivals.

(Odds courtesy of DraftKings and subject to change)

Giants +7.5 (-110)

The New York Giants were the best team in the NFL against the spread during the regular season with a 13-4 mark. To see also : Glenelg Cheerleading Wins Fall Howard County Championship. As underdogs, the Giants, including the playoffs, are 11-2 ATS and 7-1 on the road.

During the regular season, the Giants were 3-1 when underdogs by 7 points or more.

Philadelphia was 14th in the league during the regular season against the spread, going 8-9. The Eagles are 2-4 ATS when favored by a touchdown or more.

In both regular season games, Philadelphia has been a touchdown-or-more favorite over the Giants. The Eagles won the first meeting in Week 13, 48-22, when they were 7 point favourites. They were 16.5 point favorites two weeks ago and only won by 6 points.

Eagles under 28.5 total team points (-115)

Eagles under 28.5 total team points (-115)

The Giants go into Saturday’s game with all the momentum, carrying that big win over the Vikings with them. See the article : Panthers cheerleaders capture first state title, looking to carry momentum to nationals.

Philadelphia was off last week with the bye in the first round of the playoffs.

With one of the league’s top offenses resting, it could pay dividends for the Eagles. Or, it could hurt in a win-or-go-home situation where the regular season doesn’t really matter.

But since that’s what we have to do, consider this: In their last four games of the season, the Eagles averaged 22.8 points. Their regular season average is 28.1.

Since their 48-22 loss to the Eagles in Week 14, the Giants’ defense is giving up an average of just 19 points per game, including 22 to Philly in the regular season finale.

Giants QB Daniel Jones over 1.5 passing touchdowns (+140)

Giants QB Daniel Jones over 1.5 passing touchdowns (+140)

Keeping with the momentum, New York quarterback Daniel Jones looks like he’s locked in the playoffs. See the article : Taking from Lost to Pittsburgh, Exploring the Carolina….

Last week against the Vikings, Jones threw for 301 yards and two scores. It was just his third 300-yard passing game of the season. It was also the sixth time he threw multiple touchdowns.

Jones sat out the regular season finale against Philadelphia, but in his one game against the Eagles he was 18 for 27 for 169 yards and a heavy hit. He also rushed for 26 yards and a score.

To keep this close, Jones needs to keep slinging it. And he will get the opportunities.
