NFL Bargain Bets for Week 8
October 29th 2009 - Old Man Winner
New York Giants (+2) at Philadelphia Eagles
The Giants have lost their last two games. But don't let that mislead you. They
lost to two quality teams - the Saints and the Cardinals. The last time this
team lost three consecutive games was back in 2006. They are the best team on
the road in the NFL and have beat Philly in Philly the last two trips.
Take a look at the competition that Philly has played this year:
New Orleans (6-0)
That's a combined record of 13-27, or 7-27 sans New Orleans
The Eagles are just not used to the level of competition that the Giants will
bring. Philly is also likely to be without Brian Westbrook, their #1 offensive
weapon. This will hurt them in a big way. If he doesn't play (concussion) the
Eagles will not be able to play their traditional dump off game they usually
scheme to slow down the Giants rush. Without him the Eagles should see more
pressure and be successful at getting to an increasingly immobile Donovan
McNabb. I expect the Eagles to connect on 1 or 2 big plays, but that's about it.
On other side of the ball, The Eagles will be blitzing like they always have and
the Giants should be able to attack on the ground and succeed on a couple of big
Oh, your a trend guy? How about this one - in the last 9 meetings of these two
teams, dating back to 2005, the underdog has covered.
Not a trend guy? How about this one - the Eagles lost to the RAIDERS! That
should be 'nuff said!
I expect the Giants to win by high single digits. Take the Giants +2 pts.
