The Eagles are bad. By most measures, a 5-7 record is a sign of a lost season, a team too mired in mediocrity to accomplish anything. But in the NFC East, it’s good enough to just maybe win the division.
And so, Philadelphia’s game on Monday night with the 2-10 New York Giants is a lot more important than you might expect it to be.
A win puts the Eagles in a tie for first place atop the NFC East. Even a loss wouldn’t eliminate them from the playoffs.
As we get ready for kickoff Monday Night Football, let’s take a quick look at all the betting odds and angles that accompany the upcoming primetime game at our local sportsbooks.
Eli Manning is expected to be under center for Giants
An interesting subplot in the game is the Giants quarterback situation. Rookie Daniel Jones is expected to miss the game with an ankle injury, which will make Eli Manning the quarterback for New York. Manning has been on the sideline for most of the season while the Giants took a long look at Jones.
With Manning expected to start Monday night, FanDuel has posted a prop bet involving the veteran quarterback. The Eli Manning 300+ passing yards and Darius Slayton 100+receiving yards prop will pay out +550.
