As bad as things look for the Philadelphia Eagles after losing their last three games, they still control their own destiny in terms of making the playoffs and their remaining schedule is easy. If the Eagles win their last four games they will win the NFC East and host a playoff game. The four-game stretch begins on Monday night on ESPN, as Philadelphia takes on the New York Giants. These teams will meet twice in the last four weeks, so that should be good news for the Eagles. Let’s look at the game and NFL picks.
This NFL regular season game between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles will be held at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at 8:15 p.m. ET on Monday, December 9, 2019. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN.

Bettors have been all over the Eagles in this game, as the line opened with Philadelphia an 8.5-point favorite and it is now up to Philadelphia -10. The total opened at 46.5 and is down a tick to 46.
Eli Manning to Start for New York
The Giants have an injury at quarterback, as Daniel Jones has an ankle injury, so New York is giving Eli Manning another start. The New York offense hasn’t been any good no matter who is at quarterback. The difference in the two quarterbacks is that Manning simply can’t move, so the offensive line has to give him time to throw if New York is to have success. The Philadelphia secondary is bad, so if Manning gets time to throw then the Giants could be competitive in this game. New York head coach Pat Shurmur expects Manning to play well. “He’s been ready to play all year,” Shurmur said to the media, “He’ll be ready to go. I expect him to go out and have a winning performance. That’s what I expect.”
Eagles Continue to be Schizophrenic
In the first couple months of the seasons the offense played well, but the defense struggled, but in the last month the offense has struggled and the defense has played better. The offense was better against Miami, but it still wasn’t good enough to get the job done. Carson Wentz does not look like a franchise quarterback and there are very few receivers on the team that are any good. The Eagles rely heavily on their tight ends and if defenses take away Ertz and Goedert the team struggles to score.
The Giants are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games on grass. The Giants are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games as a road underdog. The Giants are 6-2-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
The Eagles are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Monday games. The Eagles are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games. The Eagles are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. the NFC East.
Looking at the total, the Over is 7-1 in the Giants last 8 road games. The Over is 5-1 in the Giants last 6 games in December. The Over is 4-1 in the Giants last 5 vs. the NFC East. The Under is 4-0 in the Eagles last 4 home games. The Under is 10-4 in the Eagles last 14 games as a home favorite. The Under is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Philadelphia.
Neither of these teams is any good, but I know I can’t lay double-digits with this Philadelphia team. They have major problems on offense and last week the defense had trouble against a weak Miami team. I will take the points with the Giants on Monday night.
