After seeing Ben McAdoo lead the New York Giants to an 11-5 season and a Wild Card ticket to the playoffs, New York fans were anxious for the 2017 online NFL betting season to finally commence. But right about now, Giants fans are wishing that the top sportsbooks betting season had never even started. New York is sitting on a cowardly 0-2 record that paints them as the absolute worst team in the NFC East. Most gambling websites would agree that the NFC East might be one of the, if not the toughest division in the league. So it’s no understatement to say that the Giants desperately need a win this Sunday. The only question is if the fact that their facing a division rival a good thing or a bad thing?

 

The Eagles fly into this Sunday’s contest versus the Giants sporting a respectable 1-1 record. Fortunately for Philadelphia, that’s good enough to land them the top spot in the division. And, once again, fortunately for the Eagles, they’ll have the opportunity to pick off the struggling Giants this Sunday.

New York is arguably the worst place to struggle as a professional athlete. Being in the Big Apple means that you’ll have a big audience, one that is as cutthroat as they come and one that has no qualms about throwing you under the bus at the first sign of trouble. But this isn’t what you’d call the first sign of trouble from Eli Manning – who is at the center of Big Blue’s struggles. Manning is no stranger to regular season success and if it weren’t for his two big upsets over Tom Brady in Super Bowls, the Giants would have unquestionably gotten rid of Peyton’s younger brother a long time ago. But Manning always comes through when he’s needed the most, or at least you can say he usually does. Only thing is that it seems like New York is running thin on patience.

Betting New York

The Giants need a top sportsbook performance this Sunday. If New York can hash out the win, the Giants will immediately have one up on the Eagles in the division and would be thrust back into the mix of things. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen anything from the Giants that can lead us to belief that they can actually win this game this Sunday.

Betting Philadelphia

The Eagles have the home turf and that’s a big win for them in this heated rivalry. Carson Wentz has been getting the job done with 4 touchdowns, 640 yards, 2 interceptions and a 89.3 passer rating. But from what we saw last year, we know that Wentz has better numbers in him. Numbers that might just come out this Sunday versus New York.

Best Sportsbook Bets to Make: There’s a lot of value to be had on the Giants upset and there’s no guarantee that the Eagles will win this Sunday. It’s tough to bet against the home though, so you might want to take the Birds on the money line.
