At some point, we’ve all fibbed and told ourselves that all games are created equal and that one is no more important than another. While that’s correct in theory, we all know that we don’t believe that. Week 14 brings another Philadelphia Eagles game. They’re playing the doggone New York Giants for crying out loud!
Giants Week is different. If any Eagles fan tells you otherwise, they’re being dishonest. When Philly wins this game, it’s always doubly satisfying, and who are we kidding? After watching the Eagles lose to these guys in East Rutherford, New Jersey last season, we all want revenge (even if the Birds did beat the G-Men four weeks later).
We expect the Eagles to win. Here are a few prop bets that you might find interesting if you’re looking to place a few wagers.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts Passing Yards Total: OVER 227.5 (-114)
As driven as Jalen Hurts is, we believe that his constant pursuit of perfection has led him to think about last year’s road game versus the Giants from time to time. Expect a performance that ranks as one of his best after having what was arguably his worst in this same setting in 2021.
Exceeding more than 228 yards passing won’t be an issue at all. You most certainly shouldn’t be shocked if he throws multiple touchdown passes.
Giants QB Daniel Jones Passing Yards Total: UNDER 191.5 (-114)
Jalen Hurts has progressed as a passer. Daniel Jones hasn’t. That’s about as frank as we can be here.
New York’s offensive game plan has diminished to getting the ball to Saquon Barkley in both the running and passing game and letting Daniel Jones pick up yards with his legs. Last week, it was Jones that led the team in rushing yards. This week, Saquon is dealing with a neck injury.
We rank the Philadelphia Eagles’ secondary ahead of the Giants’ receiving corps. We see no possibility of Daniel Jones throwing for 192 yards or more in this one.
Philadelphia Eagles WR A.J. Brown Receiving Yards Total: OVER 73.5 (-114)
The Eagles’ offense is on fire thanks, in part, to a phenomenal showing versus the Tennessee Titans. A.J. Brown had a big game versus his former team, and Philadelphia would be wise to feed him versus their rivals.
We believe that they will. That should easily lead to 73.5 yards receiving or more.
