The Pick: Giants +7.5 at -113 (Unibet)
The late game on Saturday will feature the New York Giants, a team who will be looking for a win on the road when they face the Philadelphia Eagles on January 21st, 2023. The game will be the second game of the day in the NFL, with Jacksonville to face Kansas City at an earlier time.
The Eagles, who are the conference’s top seed, will host the game with a start time of 8:15 PM ET. The Giants, following their victory last weekend over Minnesota, are heading into the game as moderate underdogs, with the spread set at +7.5 (Unibet). That looks like plenty of help for this team, one that has peaked again.

- Injury report link: Giants vs Eagles injury report
The New York Giants will enter the game with an overall record of 10-7-1 on the season. They listed seven players on their half of the injury report this week. Five of those players were LP in Thursday’s practice. It is certainly not a terrible injury report for New York to have.
This New York team is one that seemed to peak early in the season before suffering a lull in the second half. However, they found good form down the stretch and continued that into the playoffs last week, where it resulted in a road win over Minnesota. The general opinion out there with New York is that Daniel Jones is at the peak of his powers. At first glance, +7.5 looks really big for a handicap with the Giants.
Week 14 game: Philly won by lots but….
The Philadelphia Eagles are 14-3 on the season. Philadelphia handed the Giants a 26-point spread in a Week 14 game about a month and a week ago. That will probably loom large in a lot of bettor’s minds but the Giants are way more polished right now. If you go back to the Week 14 injury report, there was a lot wrong with New York that week. Specifically, Saquon Barkley carried a neck injury through practice that week.
Expect a tighter game in the Divisional Round in a very intriguing matchup. Each team has its share of players looking to make their mark on the NFL playoffs. Take the Giants at +7.5 as that looks like a lot of points to start with in this game.
