New York Giants @ Philadelphia Eagles


1:00 PM

PHI -11 (-112)

O/U 40.5 (-107)



New York is 0-3 ATS in its last 3 games as a road underdog.

The UNDER is 7-3 in Philadelphia’s last 10 as a home favorite.

Philadelphia is 3-1-1 ATS in its last 5 games as a favorite.


Giants News & Notes

New York’s offense was held to six points against the Cowboys in Week 15, failing to score a touchdown for the second time in three games. With Daniel Jones shut down for the remainder of the season, Mike Glennon and Jake Fromm are the alternatives at quarterback.

Fromm will likely start against the Eagles after relieving Glennon during the Dallas game. He completed half of his 12 pass attempts for 82 yards without a touchdown or interception. Glennon had gone 13-for-24 for 99 yards while serving up three picks.

Saquon Barkley had 50 yards rushing on 15 carries against the Cowboys and has now gone six straight games without a touchdown.

In Week 12, the New York defense came up big in the 13-7 victory over the Eagles, limiting Jalen Hurts to 129 yards passing and intercepting him three times..


NY Giants are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of NY Giants' last 8 games.

NY Giants are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

NY Giants are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against Philadelphia.



Eagles News & Notes

Jalen Hurts and Dallas Goedert stole the show in a 27-17 victory over Washington. Returning from an ankle injury, Hurts completed 20 of 26 passes for 296 yards with one touchdown pass and one interception. Seven of those completions landed in the hands of Goedert, who eclipsed the century mark for the second straight game with 135 receiving yards.

Miles Sanders is also trending upward. The running back rumbled for 131 yards against Washington for his second consecutive outing of more than 120 yards.

Philadelphia ran for 238 yards and outgained Washington 519-237 in total yards. The Eagles lead the NFL in averaging 165.6 yards on the ground and face a Giants defense that is 26th in the league against the run, allowing 125.0 yards per game.


The total has gone OVER in 6 of Philadelphia's last 8 games.

Philadelphia are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Philadelphia's last 6 games against NY Giants.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Philadelphia's last 5 games at home.





Pittsburgh Steelers @ Kansas City Chiefs 


4:25 PM

KC -10.5 (-103)

O/U 44.5 (-108)



Pittsburgh is 2-7 SU in its last 9 road games.

Kansas City is 5-0 ATS in its last 5 games.

The UNDER is 4-0 in the past 4 meetings at Kansas City.


Steelers News & Notes

While everyone is raving about how Kansas City has risen to the top of the AFC as the hottest team in the conference, Pittsburgh has quietly stayed alive in the race for a playoff spot.

The Steelers are surprisingly just a half-game back of the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals for the lead in the AFC North, and they also still have a solid shot at a wild-card berth if they fall short of winning the division title, this courtesy of a 19-13 victory against the Tennessee Titans as 1-point home favorites last week.

They have not been able to put together a winning streak, though, since taking four in a row between Weeks 5 and 9. The big question is, how will Pittsburgh stop Kansas City’s offense?


Pittsburgh are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against Kansas City.

Pittsburgh are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games against Kansas City.

Pittsburgh are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Pittsburgh's last 5 games when playing on the road against Kansas City.



Chiefs News & Notes

Slowly but surely, the Chiefs have become Super Bowl favorites again behind an improved defense and perennial MVP contender Patrick Mahomes.

Kelce scored two touchdowns at Los Angeles last week – including the game-winner – but Hill hauled in a team-high 12 receptions for 148 yards and also scored on a one-yard pass from Mahomes, who ended up throwing for a season-high 410 yards after a quiet first half.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs D prevented the opposition from scoring on two first-and-goals at the five-yard line.


Kansas City are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Kansas City's last 9 games.

Kansas City are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Kansas City's last 8 games against Pittsburgh.





Washington Football Team @ Dallas Cowboys


8:20 PM

DAL -9.5 (-103)

O/U 46.5 (-103)



Washington is 4-1-1 ATS in its last 6 games.

Dallas is 11-3 ATS in its last 14 games.

The UNDER is 12-2 in Dallas’ last 14 SNF games.


Football News & Notes

Washington got off to a great start vs the Eagles, jumping out to an early 10-0 lead after the first quarter before giving up 17 unanswered points. Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts settled down after throwing an early interception that helped Washington out, as the second-year signal-caller rushed for two touchdowns and threw for another.

Meanwhile, Gilbert did the best he could to move the ball down the field, but he could manage to generate only one more scoring drive, early in the fourth quarter when running back Jaret Patterson had a one-yard touchdown run.

Heinicke had put the team in position for a potential playoff run during a four-game winning streak, so it is hard to imagine Washington being competitive at Dallas if he is unable to take the field for this NFC East matchup.


Washington are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Washington's last 9 games.

Washington are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.

Washington are 3-6 ATS in their last 9 games against Dallas.



Cowboys News & Notes

The Cowboys have righted the ship after a disappointing two-game skid that saw them lose to the Kansas City Chiefs and Las Vegas Raiders within a five-day period. They are tied with Green Bay for the best spread record in the NFL at 11-3 ATS and sit only one game behind the Packers in the race for the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

Dallas is coming off a 21-6 win over the New York Giants last week, covering as a 12-point road favorite to extend its ATS run to three. The UNDER is also on a 3-0 run during that stretch, as the Cowboys have limited opponents to 14.3 points per game.

The Dallas D may be the best in the conference despite some stats saying otherwise, especially with rookie linebacker Micah Parsons (12 sacks) continuing to play like the Defensive Player of the Year.


Dallas are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Dallas' last 8 games.

Dallas are 10-3 SU in their last 13 games.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Dallas' last 12 games against Washington.
