The NFC East this season has become the toughest division in football. The play of young quarterbacks has led to the turnaround, but the division still has one of the longest tenured quarterback in Eli Manning for the New York Giants. Youth will collide against experience when quarterback Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles play their second straight inter-division contest against the New York Giants. The matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants is scheduled to start on Sunday, November 6, 2016, at 1 p.m. ET at MetLife Stadium.

The Philadelphia Eagles (4-3) are coming from a 29-23 OT loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 8. Carson Wentz completed 23 of 43 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown to lead the Eagles. Offensively, the Eagles are averaging 25.5 points and 317.7 total yards (208.3 in passing and 109.4 in rushing) per game. The Eagles are good on defense and coordinator Jim Schwartz has done a great job. Defensively, the Eagles are yielding 16.7 points and 328.9 total yards (214.1 in passing and 114.7 in rushing) per game against the opposing teams.

The New York Giants (4-3) have a winning record and come off their bye with a two-game winning streak, but they’ve been less than dominating so far this season. The Giants are dead last in the NFL in running the football and the loss of running back Rashad Jennings for a few games have made it even worse. Offensively, the Giants are averaging 19.0 points and 345.3 total yards (275.0 in passing and 70.3 yards) per game.  The Giants are ranked 17th in total defense and 10th in scoring defense, both are vast improvements over last season. Defensively, the New York Giants are yielding 20.1 points and 361.0 total yards (267.4 in passing and 93.6 in rushing) per game against the opposing teams. If New York can’t run the ball, they’ll find it difficult to penetrate the Philadelphia Eagles defense. Manning will have problems moving the football consistently, so we give the win to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Following the Money Line on NFL and College Football

What to look for when a Sportsbook releases the Money Line on NFL and College Football

This video explains what to look for when following a NFL or College football line during a televised game and the best time to bet on NFL and college football.


Some people prefer to bet on which team will win the game without the use of the spread. This is called “betting on the money line” or “betting straight up”.

On the Patriots-Jets game you might see a money line of:

Patriots +$240

Jets -$280

The minus number goes with the favorite. That is how much you must risk on that team to win $100 of your bookie’s dough.

The plus number goes with the underdog. That is how much your bookie would wager against your $100 if you took that team.

If there is no favorite, each team is listed at -$110. For either side you must risk $110 to win $100.

Money lines can be parlayed; consult a book on sports betting for how to calculate payoff odds. (All baseball odds are money lines, so a book on betting baseball would have this for sure.)

Most shops have a fixed conversion table for spread odds to money line odds. 3-point favorites are near -$150 on the money line, touchdown favorites near -$300, and 10-point favorites near -$500. Most shops won’t have a money line on a game where the spread is more than 14 points.
