We can joke all we want about the NFC Least (5-18-1 combined with three of those wins coming against each other, so 2-15-1 against everyone else), but we’re still going to be watching (and betting) the Giants visiting the Eagles on Thursday Night Football, right?
The Eagles are 1-4-1 and just half a game behind the 2-4 Cowboys while the Giants (barely) picked up their first win, 20-19, over Washington, but are only one game back. So, while it won’t be football at its highest level, we should still see a competitive game tonight (8:20 p.m., FOX).
Last week’s advance line for this game was as high as Eagles -7 and was down as low as -3.5 earlier this week, but is now on the way back up and was mostly Eagles -4.5 as of this writing on Thursday morning. We believe it’s moving back in the right direction, as we think the Eagles are the right side off their upset of the 49ers last week and then covering in a 30-28 loss vs. the Ravens this past Sunday.
