NFC East Week 13; Keeping it in the Family

The NFC East has historically been the NFL’s toughest division. All four teams in the division have many big wins and playoff appearances to boast about. When two of those teams get together to play each other, it is a bitter rivalry that always produces a great game. The teams in this division do not like each other. The fans of the teams do not like each other. A team’s season can be made with a crucial win inside this division. Today, there are two such games. Okay, actually one of them is tomorrow night. Even though this season has not been a good one for the division compared to most years, they still have three teams out of four with a chance to get into the playoffs at this late stage. And we’ve seen before how teams from this division do once they get in.

TopBet has odds on the games for the NFC East this week:

Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys- This game could be the last nail in the coffin for Eagles coach Andy Reid. The Eagles are in free fall mode, having lost eight of their last nine games. But they are still dangerous. Dallas has a tendency to not play up to their potential against weaker opponents, especially at home.  Philadelphia is +10 -110 or +425. Dallas is -10 -110 or -550. Over/under is 44. We like the Eagles +10. We also like the under. We can’t give the Cowboys a ten point hole to dig out of until they show some killer instincts.

New York Giants at Washington RedskinsEli Manning vs Robert Griffin III. This should be a good one. We have the pocket passer with experience vs the young and mobile quarterback with the rocket arm and quick legs. We suspect the Giants will give the rookie a lesson much like the New England Patriots gave the Indianapolis Colts and rookie Andrew Luck a few weeks ago about playoff type NFL football. The Giants are -3 -110 or -160. The Redskins are +3 -110 or +140. Over/under is 51. We like the Giants -3 and the over. Footballs are going to fly around in this game. It will be high scoring. In the end though, look for the Giants defense to make a couple of plays that make the difference.
