Eagles soar high: 76% implied probability of victory against Giants

The Giants-Eagles rivalry is one of the oldest and most intense in the NFL. The NFC East showdown will take place this January 21 at Lincoln Financial Field. These teams have a long-standing rivalry that dates to 1933.

The oddsmakers at BetUS have listed the Philadelphia Eagles as the favorites at –330, while the New York Giants at +270. This means that the Eagles have an implied probability of winning of 76%, while the Giants have a 27% probability of winning (note that these implied probabilities do not add up to 100 percent because of the bookmaker's margin).

On the spread, the Eagles are favored by +7½, a difference of more than a touchdown. For this matchup, the Eagles are 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 Divisional Playoff games.

“There are several reasons why the Philadelphia Eagles could defeat the New York Giants in this matchup, and one of those is that Jalen Hurts is playing at a high level and is the third (+650) in the odds to win as MVP,” says Barry Barger, a senior betting analyst at BetUS. “Hurts could be the player to score the first touchdown in the game and is listed at +525.”

A strong defensive effort by the Eagles could limit the Giants' offensive production and give their own offense a chance to succeed. Let's not forget the home-field advantage, the Eagles will have the support of their home crowd, which will give them a boost.
