- The Philadelphia Eagles are currently 2.5-point road favorites against the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football (8:20 p.m. ET).
- Using the Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how professionals are betting tonight's Eagles-Giants matchup.
It’s been a struggle for the entire NFC East so far this season. Through five weeks, none of the four teams has a winning record and the division sports a negative point differential, collectively.
The Philadelphia Eagles were expected to contend for back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, but have stumbled out of the gates to a 2-3 record.
There was also plenty of optimism for a bounce-back season from the New York Giants following key offseason additions that included drafting running back Saquon Barkley and signing left tackle Nate Solder.
However, the Giants have struggled to a 1-4 record and currently occupy the NFC East cellar.
With both teams desperately needing a win tonight to jumpstart their 2018 seasons, professional bettors have put their weight — and money — behind one particular side.
