The New York Giants have exceeded expectations and then some this season, upsetting the Minnesota Vikings on Wild Card Weekend to set up a date with the Philadelphia Eagles in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs.
Giants quarterback Daniel Jones put up a historic performance against Minnesota, and bettors may want to look at another one of his stats before wagering on this game.
The Eagles are the No. 1 seed in the NFC and come into this game as major favorites, but it may not be warranted given how well the Giants have played as of late. Don’t forget, New York covered against Philly in Week 18 despite playing most of its backups.
Before we get into this crazy Daniel Jones betting trend, here’s a look at the latest odds for this game:
Giants vs. Eagles odds, spread and total for divisional round
Giants vs. Eagles prediction and pick
The bright side for Giants bettors is that you can get the team through the key number of seven, and I think that’s the way to go in this game.
Jones has been elite on the road in his career, and he’s actually 17-5 against the spread as a road underdog.
For some reason, the Giants’ quarterback plays better away from home, posting a quarterback rating of 91.3 on the road compared to 82.1 at home. He’s also thrown for six more touchdowns and 10 less picks on the road despite playing two fewer games there in his career.
Not only is Jones great on the road, but the Giants have been elite against the spread this season, going a league best 14-4.
The Eagles are a great team, but they are dealing with a shoulder injury to Jalen Hurts, and we may not see them at their full potential this week. In a familiar matchup (this is the third time these teams will play this season) for the Giants, 7.5 points is way too many to give this team.
