Odds are out for the biggest and best games of the upcoming NFL season. Covers Expert Jesse Schule gives you his insight into some of these marquee matchups and predicts where the odds could move before kickoff.
NFL Week 8: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles (Pick)
Past History: Philadelphia is 3-2 SU, 3-2 ATS since 2010.
Early look at the Giants: With a win total of 10, the Giants are expected to improve on a disappointing 9-7 season in 2012. The Giants will be coming off a Monday night game against Minnesota, playing on short rest. They also have a road-heavy schedule in the first half, playing five of eight away from New York.
Early look at the Eagles: The Eagles have a new coach and Chip Kelly has his work cut out for him. He hasn't made a lot of changes on offense, opting to keep Michael Vick at quarterback, but he's given the defense quite an overhaul.
Where this line will move: This will be the second meeting between these teams, and the result of the first meeting will likely have an impact on the line for this game. If Vick can stay healthy and the Eagles can string together a few wins, they might find themselves favorites by game day.
