Week 6 in the NFL ends with a huge NFC East clash as the Giants have won 3 in a row and sit atop the division squaring off against the Eagles.  This Monday nighter will be huge.

Opening Odds & Line Movement

Open: -4 -113 at Pinnacle
The Eagles opened up as 4-point favorites at home before the NFL odds moved down to -4.5, then back to -4, then back to -4.5. It could move to -5 depending on an injury concern for the Giants and how valuable the sportsbooks thinks he is, but the Giants are an intriguing option. They probably should be 5-0 if not for a couple of fourth-quarter blown leads to start the season and their offense is seventh in the league in points scored. The Eagles' offense showed signs of life in putting up 39 points on a Saints team that held Atlanta to 21 points on Thursday night, but they're still inconsistent.

Injuries
The Giants have worries at wide receiver as Odell Beckham Jr. and Reuben Randle both have bad hamstrings and are questionable for Monday night. Beckham Jr. is the big question here as he has ascended to the top tier of the WR scale in the NFL, but don't count out Randle, who has been a good foil for OBJ with Victor Cruz on the shelf. Cruz still isn't close to playing with his calf injury, so this stings for the Giants. They will also be without CB Prince Amukamara, who has a pectoral injury.

The Eagles have a leg up in this category as they're pretty healthy as they look to make a run at the division-leading Giants. WR Nelson Agholor has an ankle injury that kept him out of practice on Thursday, but that's about it.

 

Trends
The Giants have covered in six of their last nine games, while the Eagles have done so in three of their last nine. The Giants are also a solid 4-1 ATS in their last five on the road, while the Eagles are 2-3 ATS in their last five at home. The total for this game sits at 49, down from 50, and the Giants have gone over in five of their last seven games, while the Eagles have gone under in four of their last five.

The Eagles are 7-3 SU and ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Giants, who are 5-5 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 trips to Philadelphia.
