Eagles Giants Betting Tips – Two Stumbling Teams Meet With Almost Nothing On The Line
Philadelphia Eagles @ New York Giants – Sunday December 30, 2012 1:00PM EST
Sportsbook experts knew that the Giants’ desire to flirt with missing the playoffs late in the season would bite New York one day. This is that day as the Giants need a series of unlikely events to happen if it wants to make the playoffs. The ineptness of quarterback Eli Manning and the ineffectiveness of the New York defense has finally come together to cost the Giants a playoff spot. If the Giants want to have any chance at all to make the playoffs, it needs to win this game over the Eagles. But even then, the Giants’ chances of making the playoffs are extremely slim.
The online sports betting world knows that changes are coming in Philadelphia, it is just not very clear as to what all of the changes will be. One thing that most people agree on is that quarterback Michael Vick and head coach Andy Reid will not be part of the Eagles’ organization when this season is finally over. Some people are suggesting that Reid will simply take Vick to whatever team he winds up coaching next season. One thing that everyone can agree on is that Andy Reid will be a head coach in the NFL next season, the only question is where.
Why the Giants Will Win
The football betting world used to believe that the regular season was not that important to the New York Giants’ chances of winning a Super Bowl. But when the Giants fail to make the playoffs, then the regular season suddenly becomes important. The winner of this game will be the team that can prevent itself from making the most mistakes. By the time the game is over, it should be the Giants that was able to make some plays and limit the number of mistakes it commits.
Why the Eagles Will Win
One of the questions that will linger during the offseason for the Philadelphia Eagles will be the fate of rookie quarterback Nick Foles. Despite having an inconsistent offensive line and significant injuries to the Eagles’ running backs, Foles has been able to impress just about everyone that watched him. But without Reid as the head coach, it is unknown whether or not Foles will stay with the Eagles. In this game, Foles will try to rally the broken pieces of the Philadelphia Eagles one more time to win the final game of the season.
The Bottom Line
The only team in this game that has anything remotely worth playing for is the New York Giants. When New York is able to get its game together, the Giants can be competitive. Look for New York to bring everything in line for one last effort to secure a playoff spot.
Pick: New York Giants
