NY Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles: Point spread and odds

 Our NFL Week 10 betting preview continues with the NFC East matchup NY Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles, we'll look at the point spread and odds offered on this football game by the bookmakers. A clash worthy of closing the Sunday football broadcast, the New York Giants (7-1) will face the struggling Philadelphia Eagles (5-3) in a game utterly important for the NFC East ranking. Currently the NY  Giants are sitting atop the conference, although many point to the fact that the Giants have had quite week contenders so far, and the Eagles still have a good chance of doing something this year, currently third in the NFC East, after the Redskins and ahead of the Cowboys. And with Washington resting in Week 10, victory will give the Giants a solid conference lead, while a win for the Eagles will resurrect a chance for reaching the playoffs.

 So let's look at the odds and spread offered on this important NFC game. To do so we headed to the popular online sportsbooks Bookmaker, where we found that the Philadelphia Eagles are actually the favorite team to win the Week 10 football game, listed with odds -160, contrary to the fact that many experts consider the Giants the favorite team. The NY Giants will visit Pa as underdog with odds to win the Sunday game at +140. The NY Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles point spread is currently sitting at -3 points chalk the Eagles at Bookmaker and the total is posted at 42.5 points by the odds makers. Keep in mind the betting trends show that NY Giants are 10-1 against the spread in their last 11 games on the road and 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games when playing Philadelphia. The Eagles, meanwhile are 6-2 against the spread in their last 8 games, but the total has gone UNDER in 5 of Philadelphia's last 5 games at home.

 Injuries will not be a big factor this week, with the Giants listing safety James Butler, cornerback Kevin Dockery and linebacker Gerris Wilkinson out for Week 10 football, all with injuries, while linebacker Zak DeOssie seems to have recovered from illness and is listed as probable for participating on Sunday. At Philadelphia only the two cornerbacks Joselio Hanson and Lito Sheppard remain questionable for the Sunday football game, the rest of the injuries, including wide receivers Jason Avant and DeSean Jackson, have been upgraded to probable for the game against the NY Giants.
