Jalen Hurts Over 49.5 Rushing yards
Jalen Hurts anytime touchdown -110
Daniel Jones over/28.5 Pass Attempts
What is the line telling you: The Giants have been gashed by both mobile quarterbacks that they’ve faced this year, giving up 52 yards rushing to Justin Fields, and 77 to Lamar Jackson. Hurts should be able to break a few on Sunday. We like Jones over pass attempts. He’s gone over this total in all four of the Giants losses, and the tie against Washington. If they get behind early, and there is a chance they could against the explosive Eagles, expect the Giants to put the ball in Jones’ hands.
