10* MONDAY NIGHT GAME OF THE MONTH! (GIANTS/EAGLES)

NY Giants vs. Philadelphia, 12/09/2019 20:15 EDT, Score: 17 - 23

Point Spread: -8½/-110 Philadelphia

Sportsbook: TopBet

Result: Loss

I'm playing on PHILADELPHIA. Both of these teams have seen better days. The Eagles have dropped three straight, most recently a humiliating loss against lowly Miami. The Giants, meanwhile, haven't won in months. Playing at home, knowing they will face these same Giants at New York in 20 more days, I expect the Eagles to be the team which bounces back. As bad as Eagles' fans might feel, keep in mind that the first two of their three losses came against the Patriots and the Seahawks, a pair of playoff teams capable of meeting in the Super Bowl. Both losses were close. So, in hindsight, a letdown against the Dolphins wasn't that shocking. Here, however, they're facing a hated division rival and there won't be any letdown. The Eagles' defense allows 18 points and 270.5 yards here at home. The Giants, on the other hand, allow 30.8 ppg and 404 ypg on the road. Expect that far superior defense to be the difference, the Eagles bouncing back with a double-digit win.
