New York is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 playoff road games. The over is 5-1 in New York’s last 6 Saturday games. Philadelphia is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 playoff games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 January games. The under is 4-0 in Philadelphia’s last 4 playoff games. The road team is 7-3 ATS in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.
Philadelphia has been one of the best teams in the NFL this season and will be at home for this playoff game. New York finished the season playing well and just went into Minnesota and knocked off the Vikings in the Wild Card round. I think we are going to see a close game in the first half, but Philadelphia will pull away in the second half behind a big performance from Hurts. I like the Eagles here.
