Week 6 of the NFL season kicks off with an NFC East rivalry game between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles. Latest Giants Eagles betting odds below. The game will be played at MetLife Stadium on Thursday, October 11. Also, it is scheduled to begin at 8:20 PM. ET.
The defending Super Bowl champions didn’t start their season the way they had hoped. They lost three of their first five games. Fortunately for the Eagles, the NFC East is wide open this season and they still have time to turn things around.
Philadelphia’s defense has been solid so far, giving up 20.8 points per game, which is eighth in the league. However, they have struggled offensively and are averaging 20.6 points per game, which is 25th in the league.
Carson Wentz has been solid since his return from injury, completing 67 percent of his passes for 914 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception. But the team has struggled to run the ball consistently, which makes their offense one-dimensional and easier to defend.
If the Eagles can avoid making costly mistakes against the Giants, they should be able to get the win and improve their record to 3-3.
NFL Week 6 Betting Odds
The Giants were expected to be better than they were last season because they now have a playmaking running back and a healthy Odell Beckham Jr.
Unfortunately for their fans, the team still struggles offensively and has only one win in their first four games.
Beckham started some drama before their loss to the Carolina Panthers, blaming his teammates for their early struggles. He tried to walk back his comments after their loss to the Panthers, but the damage might already be done.
With a fractured locker room and an offense that has been inconsistent this season, the Giants might be headed towards getting one of the top picks in the draft next season if they don’t turn things around quickly.
New York’s defense also needs to improve, after giving up 33 points in each of their last two losses. If they allow the Eagles to score 30 or more on Thursday, they will likely lose their third consecutive game. Ready for Week 6 betting?
NFL Week 6 Betting Pick and Predictions:
The Eagles are favored to win this game by 3 points. The over/under on total points scored is 44.5.
Philadelphia is clearly the better team here. They should be able to attack New York’s defense, which has been a liability this season and get their third win of the season. Take the Eagles -3.
