New York Giants fans must be excited for Week 14 even though they know their team is not going to be in the playoffs, as Eli Manning is slated to start. Will Manning give his team, the only one he’s ever played for so far in his career, a feel-good victory? Or will the Eagles spoil Manning’s return and boost their chances to win the NFC East with a win?

Betting on the New York Giants (2-10)
Two words: Eli Manning. The long-time quarterback of the Giants is trending towards a starting duty in a Monday Night Football matchup against the Eagles in Week 14, as rookie signal-caller Daniel Jones is dealing with a foot injury. Manning last saw action in Week 2, when he had 250 passing yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions in a loss to the Buffalo Bills at home. Since then, it was all Jones under center for the Giants, who are coming off a 31-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers at home. Having Manning back could be a good thing for the Giants, whose offense have been erratic with Jones leading the attack. Not that Manning is any much better based on what he’s shown this season, but a change, even for just a game, could have a positive impact on the Giants’ offense that is averaging just 19.2 points and 316.7 total yards per contest.
The over is 7-1 in the Giants’ last eight road games.
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (5-7)
The Eagles are coming off the most embarrassing loss of the team at least since they won the Super Bowl in 2017. In Week 13, the Eagles lost to the Miami Dolphins on the road 37.31. Philadelphia could not stop the Dolphins’ passing attack, with Ryan Fitzpatrick and DeVante Parker victimizing the Eagles’ secondary on numerous occasions. Parker torched the Eagles for 159 receiving yards and two touchdowns on just seven catches. It encapsulates how the Eagles’ season is going of late, but they’re still very much capable of bouncing back, especially with a home game against a two-win Giants team. Carson Wentz went 28 for 46 for 310 passing yards and three touchdowns with an interception in the Miami game. The Giants’ defense is among the worst in the NFL with 28.2 points allowed per game and 258.6 passing yards surrendered per contest, 26th and 24th overall in the NFL, respectively.
The Eagles are 6-4 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 games against the Giants.
The Giants win, 20-17.
