The Wild Card Round ended this Monday with the farewell of Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys, thus defining the six qualifiers for the Divisional Round. Next, they will join the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles (the regular season’s best teams).
We enter the NFL Divisional Round after vibrant games in the Wild Card, where there were surprising and even historic results, such as the one obtained by the Jacksonville Jaguars over the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs 2022-23 will be played this Saturday, January 21, and Sunday, January 22. This will be the last phase before defining the conference championships.
Now, one of these Divisional Round games of this 2022-23 NFL season will be between the Philadelphia Eagles and NY Giants.
Saturday, January 21 at 08:15 PM ET at Lincoln Financial Field
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on the Giants
New York was one of the surprises of this 2022 NFL season in the Regular Season and confirmed that status in the Wild Card Round. They defeated the second-seeded Minnesota Vikings, 31-24.
With their aggressive defense in pressuring the opposing quarterback and a fearsome ground attack with Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley, New York is going for another blow in Philadelphia.
The Giants need a different playbook in more ways than one to catch these mighty Eagles off guard, who have the measure of them. The main element to watch for is Philadelphia’s ground game.
Likewise, having left on the road another powerful team like the Vikings makes the team arrive with a lot of confidence in this divisional Round.
Daniel Jones stood out in the Wild Card game with 24/35 in pass completions and two touchdown passes. In addition to the impressive runs of Saquon Barkley, who, in 9 carries, scored two touchdowns.
The Giants’ victory over the Vikings was their first in the Playoffs since 12 years ago, and on that occasion, they would end up winning the title by defeating the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Why Bet on the Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles make their presentation in the NFL Divisional Round, hosting the New York Giants at home. The Eagles dominated the NFC during most of the regular season, with a great offense led by Jalen Hurts and A.J. Brown, but finished the Regular Season with some doubts due to the loss of the already recovered Hurts.
Philadelphia has a complete roster in the NFL, perhaps only matched by San Francisco. And after a week of rest from their complicated close of the season, their best players could heal properly.
And as much as we look to match it in the preview, it’s also important to remember that the Eagles swept this series in the regular season without much trouble.
There is no doubt that the Eagles come into this game as favorites and will have to prove it in a big way against an inspired team.
Final Betting Analysis: Philadelphia Eagles vs. NY Giants
This rivalry has occurred in the playoffs on four previous occasions. The last time was also in the Divisional Round, during the 2008 season. This series has been evenly matched, as each has won twice. But, as we mentioned, the Eagles came into this matchup as favorites and won both meetings against New York in the regular season.
At MyBookie.ag, we can see that there is a Moneyline that favors Philadelphia Eagles at -359, while NY Giants start at +275.
The Giants will have to come up with a completely different and, therefore, new game to surprise these Eagles, who look unstoppable. But let’s remember that we are in the NFL Playoffs, and anything can happen.
Likewise, our pick for this game is an Eagles win, and in addition, we suggest the SPREAD bet on the Eagles at -7.5.
Look for a straight win on the Moneyline Philadelphia Eagles. If you put $100 on the Eagles at -359, you’ll be looking at a $27.86 win with a total payout of $127.86.
