Philadelphia Eagles vs. N.Y. Giants Betting Stats

N.Y. Giants
Overall Record:  10-7-1 SU,  14-4 ATS, 8-10 O/U
Road Record:  5-4 SU,  8-1 ATS,  4-5 O/U

Philadelphia Eagles
Overall Record: 14-3 SU, 8-9 ATS, 10-7 O/U
Home Record:  7-2 SU, 6-3 ATS, 6-3 O/U

It’s been a tale of two very different halves for New York this season. The Giants stormed out to an impressive 7-2 start to the year, which all but solidified their spot in this year’s postseason. However, they haven’t looked like much of a playoff team down the stretch, highlighted by the Giants closing the regular season with a lackluster 3-5-1 skid.

While on the other hand, Philly has dominated on both sides of the ball all year. However, during the back half of the season, they’ve skated by with some poor numbers against the spread, considering the Eagles closed the regular season with a 3-7 ATS skid, despite winning seven of those contests outright.

Philly has owned this series over the last five years or so. The Eagles are 15-4 in their last 19 matchups against the G-Men, and they’ve won two of their last three meetings by a distant margin of 20+ points.

In the most recent meeting between these teams, though, the Giants certainly gave them a run for their money, as the Eagles managed to escape with a 22-16 victory in a contest New York elected to rest its starters in.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. N.Y. Giants Playoff Notes

Winning the first game of the postseason has been a great recent trend for the Giants. The last two times New York did such a thing, it also captured Super Bowl championships. 

Jalen Hurts and the Eagles dropped a 31-15 decision to Tampa Bay in last year’s Wild Card Round. Including that setback, Philadelphia is 1-3 in its last four playoff games and the offense hasn’t scored more than 16 points in any of those games. 

The Giants and Eagles met in the 2008-09 postseason and Philadelphia won a 23-11 decision over New York as a four-point road underdog in the Divisional Playoff Round.

San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys Odds

After the Cowboys advanced past the Buccaneers on Monday, oddsmakers opened San Francisco -3.5 and the ‘over/under’ was set at 46. 

San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys Betting Stats

Dallas Cowboys
Overall Record: 13-5 SU, 11-7 ATS, 9-9 O/U
Road Record: 5-4 SU, 5-4 ATS, 4-5 O/U

San Francisco 49ers
Overall Record: 14-4 SU, 12-6 ATS, 10-8 O/U
Home Record: 9-1 SU, 8-2 ATS, 6-4 O/U

Clearly, San Francisco is one of the top teams in football regardless of who’s under center, considering the Niners have now won 11 straight games, and six of those contests were started by third-string quarterback Brock Purdy. Covering the spread has been no issue for them either, highlighted by San Francisco’s solid 5-1 ATS record since handing the keys to Purdy back in Week 14.

While on the other hand, the Cowboys seem to carry a stigma that they can’t be trusted, and there’s certainly some merit to that notion regarding their numbers against the spread, considering Dallas is 4-5-1 ATS since Week 10.

San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys Head-to-Head

San Francisco hasn’t fared well against Dallas in years past. The Cowboys are now 6-2 in their last eight matchups against the Niners, and they’d won three straight against San Francisco prior to their most recent meeting.

The most recent meeting between these teams took place in last year’s playoffs, though, and San Francisco finally got back over the hump when it mattered most, as the Niners escaped with a 23-17 road victory on Wild Card Weekend.

San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys Playoff Notes

The Wild Card win over Tampa Bay improved Dallas to 2-3 in the playoffs with QB Dak Prescott under center. It was also the first game that the Cowboys have covered in the postseason with Dak. In last year’s Wild Card round of the playoffs, Dallas lost 23-17 to San Francisco as a 3.5 home favorite. Make a note that the Cowboys have lost their last six appearances in the Divisional Playoff round, the most recent setback coming in 2018-19 to the Los Angeles Rams (30-22). 

San Francisco owns a 5-2 playoff record under head coach Kyle Shanahan and that includes a perfect 3-0 mark both SU and ATS at home. Those three wins were decided by an average of 17.3 PPG and the Niners’ offense has looked sharp in those outings, averaging 35 points. Bettors should note that if SF does advance in this spot, the trend for the 49ers in its previous four playoff appearances has been two wins followed by a loss.
