New York at Philadelphia

1.5 units on Game Total UNDER 48.5 -110 (risk 1.5 to return 2.86) RESULT: WIN
These teams met in the regular season finale and it went UNDER by 5.5 points, which was much different than in the first meeting when the Eagles won 48-22. This game will be more like the rematch as New York has allowed an average of only 19 points since that first game and that includes its 31-24 win over Minnesota in the playoffs last week. The Vikings were held to 61 yards rushing while Saquon Barkley carried only nine times for 53 yards for the Giants, who figure to use him a lot more in this game and keep the clock running. Philadelphia leads the league in sacks with 70 and no one else is even close. The Eagles finished the season #1 in yards allowed and #7 in scoring defense, allowing 20.2 points per game (New York allowed 21.8). Philadelphia had seven sacks in the first meeting and two more in the rematch, and the Eagles are healthier on defense benefiting from the week off. Jalen Hurts made his return from injury in the season finale and was 20 of 35 for 229 yards with no TDs and an interception. The UNDER is 13-4-1 following a Giants win and they are 14-4-2 UNDER their past 20 games after allowing at least 250 passing yards in their previous game. The Eagles are 9-1-1 UNDER their past 11 home playoff games. Take the UNDER.
