NFL Week 10 Predictions: Philadelphia Eagles in Full Flight Seeking 9th Straight Win Over NY Giants
One of the most bitter rivalries in the National Football League is revived Sunday (November 15) when the New York Giants will host the Philadelphia Eagles in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The Eagles (3-4-1) travel to MetLife Stadium with a slim lead at the head of the NFC East. It speaks volumes of the close competition in the division that the Giants (2-7)—currently fourth—can move level with the leaders on wins this season with a home victory.
Winning has not come easily for either side this year, but the Eagles have looked more natural in that department. They sit in front as -167 moneyline favorites with Borgata NJ, while the Giants don’t appear to offer much value at +140, even if the Week 10 clash comes in New Jersey:
Philadelphia have won eight consecutive meetings with their New Jersey-based nemeses for just the second time in their 77-year rivalry. A last-minute grab from Boston Scott earned Doug Pederson’s side a dramatic 22-21 victory over the Giants when these teams met in Week 7:

It’s almost comical to think the winner of this game could be en route to winning the NFC East and post-season football, but that prize will act as a major motivator. That being the case, we’re expecting the Eagles to make an easier run of things compared to that close-fought fixture in October.

Date: Sunday, November 15
Time: 1 p.m. ET
Venue: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey
TV Info: FOX
Prediction: Eagles by 5
There are a few reasons to feel confident about Philadelphia’s chances at MetLife Stadium. One is that they’ll be confident after pulling off back-to-back wins for the first time this season; another is that the Giants have looked almost afraid to win football games in 2020.
Joe Judge’s outfit has won just two matches this term; both came by a margin of three points or fewer and were each against Washington:
Quarterback Daniel Jones and the New York offense have shown improvement as the campaign has wore on, but the odds still don’t run in their favor to snap an eight-loss streak vs. the Eagles.
Three of the last four games between these teams have ended by a score or less (six or fewer), and Philadelphia look appetising at +310 to win by that distance with Borgata NJ.
