Philadel­phia over NY GIANTS by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

How good is Car­son Wentz? Ap­par­ently good enough to throw a touch­down pass with a torn ACL! Un­for­tu­nately for Philly fa­nat­ics, that will be the last pass that Wentz throws this sea­son as he hands the keys off to Nick Foles. The 6-year veteran is a re­spectable 20-16 SU (17-19 ATS) as a starter in the NFL but a win­less 0-5 SUATS in his last five away games as a fa­vorite when his team is off a win. That and the fact that NFL teams in divi­sion games fol­low­ing con­sec­u­tive away games are 16-35 SUATS when com­ing off a win puts us on the home dogs de­spite Philly’s 3-1 SUATS mark on this field since 2013 and 5-1 ATS log as road fa­vorites against divi­sion foes with re­venge. Sure, we are well aware of the G-Men’s strug­gles at home (1-7 ATS) af­ter dab­bling with Dal­las but our data­base points out that New York is 4-1 ATS in divi­sion du­els when com­ing off a divi­sion game while our NFL Quar­ter­back Club re­minds us that Eli is 13-3-1 ATS in De­cem­ber when his Giants are com­ing off con­sec­u­tive losses. Yes, we’ll prob­a­bly ‘Wentz’ on more than few oc­ca­sions, but it’s take it or leave it to­day in East Ruther­ford.
