The Philadelphia Eagles will be aiming to secure the No. 1 seed in the NFC when they host the New York Giants in Week 18 NFL action. The Giants are coming off a 38-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Quarterback Daniel Jones accounted for 268 total yards and 4 touchdowns in the victory.

Meanwhile, the Eagles fell short in a 20-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 17. Quarterback Gardner Minshew struggled to find his groove as he completed 18 of his 32 pass attempts for 274 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. His ugly pick-six in the fourth quarter sealed Philly's fate.

Giants vs Eagles Prediction & Pick

It's become clear how much the Eagles miss starting quarterback Jalen Hurts. The third-year pro is still recovering from a shoulder sprain, but early reports suggest he could suit up in Week 18. That would obviously be a major boost for a Philly offense that still ranks third in points per game (28.4).

The other storyline to keep an eye on here is whether or not the Giants opt to play their starters. New York is locked into the No. 6 seed and avoiding injury to stars like Jones or Saquon Barkley is crucial. Head coach Brian Daboll will likely keep that decision to himself prior to kickoff on Sunday, though.

New York has lost eight straight games at Lincoln Financial Field and Philadelphia is desperate for a win. I'll take the Eagles.

Final Score Prediction: Giants: 17 | Eagles: 30

Giants vs Eagles Best Bet

Head coach Nick Sirianni knows that getting out to an early lead will be critical for the Eagles. A lead means that he can lean on his rushing attack and set up the play action scheme as well. It's safe to say the Philadelphia players will want to give the rowdy home crowd something to cheer about, too.

That makes backing the Eagles to be up by a touchdown at the half the way to go. Philadelphia is a reliable 11-5 against the spread (ATS) in the first half this season and averages a league-best 17.5 first half points per game. The Giants are only 3-3-1 ATS in the first half of their seven away games.

Bet: Philadelphia Eagles First Half -6.5 (-145)
