New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles Picks and Predictions
The Philadelphia Eagles will try to avoid their fourth straight loss as they host the New York Giants on Christmas Day in an NFC East matchup.
Head-To-Head: Giants vs. Eagles
The Giants’ record fell to 5-9 after their three-game winning streak was ended by the New Orleans Saints, 24-6, on the road last Sunday. New York still has a slim chance to make the playoffs, but a lot would need to happen to get there, as they’re currently 12th in the NFC playoff standings.
The Eagles suffered their third straight loss on Monday night with a 20-17 defeat on the road against the Seattle Seahawks and must quickly turn around their struggling offense as the playoffs rapidly approach. Dallas and Philadelphia sit atop the division with 10-4 records, and the Eagles fell from the top seed in the NFC to fifth. Still, they’re three games ahead of the Minnesota Vikings, who are sixth in the conference playoff race.
The Giants and Eagles have played each other 181 times, with Philadelphia leading the series with a 92-87-2 record. They’ve also met in the postseason five times, with the Giants winning three. This will be their first meeting of 2023, with Philadelphia winning both games last season.

Betting Tips for Giants vs. Eagles
The Giants are 2-12 against the Eagles in the last 14 meetings and have lost the last ten times they visited Philadelphia. The total has gone under in nine of their previous 12 games, and they are 1-6 in their last seven road games.
The total has gone over for the Eagles in six of their last seven home games and five of the previous seven contests against the Giants. They are also 0-5 against the spread in their last five games played in December.
Giants vs. Eagles Predictions
Philadelphia can’t afford another loss if they hope to win the NFC East. However, the offense has struggled to put up points even with all the weapons they possess.
The Eagles have averaged just 16.3 points per game on offense over the past three weeks, and Jalen Hurts continues to have problems protecting the ball, adding two more interceptions to his total last week. They’ll now have an advantage, as they’ll match up against the league’s 29th-ranked rushing defense on Monday.
While it’s surprising to see the Eagles as 11.5-point favorites after their recent struggles, Philadelphia has handled teams with losing records this season without much problem. However, the Giants have failed to cover the spread both times they were double-digit underdogs this season. Philadelphia should win easily over New York on their home field as long as they can establish their running game early in this contest.
Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles -11.5
