Thursday Night Football Free Pick | Week 6

This NFC East rivalry gets renewed to start NFL Week 6 when the New York Giants host the Philadelphia Eagles. There has been a lot of drama surrounding Odell Beckham Jr. and the Giants, who at 1-4 are still in the wide-open NFC East.

Philadelphia Eagles (2-3, 1-4 ATS) at New York Giants (1-4, 2-3 ATS)

When: 8:20PM ET, Thursday, October 11th, 2018

Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey

TV Coverage: FOX, NFL Network

America’s Bookie Line: NYG +3   Total: 43.5

 

That’s why this game means so much to both teams, with both teams looking up at the Redskins leading the division with a 2-2 record.

The Giants really need this one after starting the season with only a Week 3 win in Houston in the first 5 weeks. The Eagles aren’t doing much better, and are coming off their first two game losing streak since 2016.

The Eagles have dominated this rivalry in recent years, going 8-2 straight up and 6-4 ATS. Philadelphia has won the last three meetings between these two and 4 of the past 5. Having said that, each of those 5 games were decided by 5 points or less. The OVER is 7-3 in the last 10, including the last 5 in a row.

The Giants finally had enough with right tackle Ereck Flowers, placing him on waivers this week after benching him a couple weeks ago. The former 9th overall pick has never lived up to expectations, and is still owed $2.4 million.

I expect the Giants to bring there best for this one, and expect a big day from ODB and Saquon Barkley. If they can get Olivier Vernon back, that will be a huge boost to the pass rush, and will get Carson Wentz on the run.

I am considering wagering on the Giants moneyline (+144), and the OVER, but I feel very comfortable taking the Giants +3.

Free Prediction: Giants +3
