- The Philadelphia Eagles are 7.5-point home favorites over the New York Giants
- Daniel Jones became the first QB in NFL history with 300+ pass yards, 2+ pass TD and 70+ rush yards in a single playoff game last Sunday
- Saturday’s NFC Divisional Round matchup kicks off from Lincoln Financial Field at 8:15pm ET on FOX
Philadelphia dominated the NFL this season with a 14-3 record, including two victories over their NFC East rivals in New York. Yet, the Eagles could be ripe for an upset if Jalen Hurts is still hampered by a late-season shoulder injury.
Can Daniel Jones and the Giants author another playoff upset on Saturday night? Before we check the odds on this NFC Division Round tilt, here’s where you can find the best Super Bowl betting tips and the top betting sites for NFL football in 2022.

Daniel Jones leads the way
Daniel Jones passed for 301 yards and two touchdowns in New York’s 31-24 victory over the Vikings on Wild Card Weekend. He also added 78 rushing yards on a whopping 17 carries to lead the Giants to their first playoff win in 11 years. After being given up on by everyone in the media, the 25-year-old now looks like a franchise quarterback to build around.
Jalen Hurts is one of the few QBs in the league who had more rushing production than Jones this season (760 yards, 13 TDs vs 708 yards, 7 TDs) despite it being closer than one might think. However, the Eagles signal caller isn’t fully healthy heading into the Divisional Round after suffering a late-season injury to his throwing shoulder.

Regular season meetings
Philadelphia blew out the Giants 48-22 in early December. They also scored a 22-16 victory in a mostly-meaningless Week 18 matchup that saw both teams rest some starters. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the two-time regular-season winner has won the playoff rematch in 15 of 24 games like this one since the NFL merger in 1970.
The Eagles have also won 24 of the last 30 meetings versus their NFC East rivals, including nine straight at Lincoln Financial Field. Still, with losses in two of their last three regular-season games, it’s fair to wonder if Nick Sirianni’s club peaked too early.
Philadelphia vs New York
Philadelphia is a 7.5-point home favorite on Saturday night with the over-under set at 48.5 points. The G-Men scored at will versus the Vikings’ laughing-stock defense. But, the Eagles D is a different beast, allowing the second-fewest total yards per week this season. Jonathan Gannon’s unit also permitted the fewest passing yards per game (179.8) this year.
Look for Brian Daboll to continue to dial up running plays for Danny Dimes. Not to mention Saquon Barkley, who piled up 109 combined yards and two scores on Sunday. On the other side of the ball, Wink Martindale will again have his hands full after limiting Justin Jefferson to 7 receptions for 47 yards. Both A.J. Brown and Devonta Smith made house calls versus NY in Week 14. And Miles Sanders rushed for 144 yards and two TDs.

At first glance, it seems as if New York has all the momentum heading into the Divisional Round. But don’t forget this talent-barren Giants roster only managed two wins in their last eight regular-season games.
The Eagles have been one of the NFL’s premier teams all year. Expect to see Philly in the NFC Championship Game next weekend.
Final Score Prediction: Eagles 31, Giants 20
