Giants vs Eagles 2019 NFL Week 14 Odds & Pick for Monday Night

Posted by Derrick Harper on December 5, 2019 in

The New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles will meet for the first time this season on Monday NIght Football as week 14 of the NFL season wraps up. These two teams will also conclude the season against one another in a few weeks as well. The good news is one of these teams will have to snap their losing streaks that they are currently on. New York has lost their last eight games which is the longest franchise streak since they lost 10 straight in 2004.

Philadelphia is not doing much hotter as many had predicted they would make the playoffs this season but a 5-7 record after losing the last three games is less than ideal for that situation to play out. A home win against a poor 2-10 team will only be that much more important as the Philadelphia Eagles are only one game back of the Cowboys in the division and representing the NFC East in the playoffs.

Let’s take a look at the latest NFL Odds for Giants vs Eagles on Monday Night while making some predictions.

Giants vs Eagles 2019 NFL Week 14 Odds & Pick for Monday Night

Why bet on the New York Giants?

Starting rookie QB Daniel Jones will miss this game with a high ankle sprain suffered in last week’s loss to the Packers. The good news is that the Giants have a two time former Super Bowl champ to turn to as a backup even if Eli Manning has seen his performance drop due to age.

The immediate concern is that Eli has been a turnover machine when he has played this season, and if New York even wants a chance to beat their rivals then Eli will have to play mistake free football.

The Giants will likely get back their top pass catcher of the year when Tight End Evan Engram returns to the lineup after being out since November 4.

His production is a welcomed sight back as the 44 receptions is best on the team despite missing a month. Rookie Julian Love will look to continue to play well at safety as he has been the highest rated Giant over the last two weeks.

Why bet on the Philadelphia Eagles?

The Eagles lost to the Miami Dolphins last week 37-31 in a game that they were heavily favored to win. Despite that they are still eight point favorites in this game as that should go to show how poorly the G-men have looked this year. Philly has owned this series as they are 18-4 over the last 22 games between these two teams.

With a win on Monday they could even secure the first winning record head to head between these teams as it currently sits at 86-86-2 dating back to 1933.

Philly’s offense will be the unit to watch out for because they were only able to muster up 10 points a game in the two games prior to Miami.

Carson Wentz will need to be kept upright and have a clean jersey in order for him to return to the potential MVP only a few seasons ago. The secondary has been a problem for this team all season and could be trouble again if Eli looks rejuvenated after having the past few weeks off.

Expert Prediction for Giants vs Eagles

MyBookie currently has this game at Philadelphia -8.5 and an over under of 47 points. Philadelphia will win this game if you can get them on the moneyline but 8.5 points is alot for a team who gave up 37 to MIami.

Look for a healthy Giants team to cover the spread in this game and bet the over as both teams have hit over the past few games. Giants +8.5 points is the pick.
