Eagles vs. Giants 2013 odds and lines: New York favored to pick up 1st win

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants are favored to pick up their first win when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants will square off in an NFC East rivalry matchup in Week 5. But viewers won't be treated to a battle for divisional supremacy by any means, as both have been bad this season (as has the rest of the division, for what it's worth).

Philadelphia is 1-3, with all three losses coming in a row after winning their season opener. Their most recent game was a 52-20 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 4. New York is winless at 0-4, with a 31-7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and a 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers over the past two weeks. It's a sorry state of affairs.

Interestingly enough, it's the winless Giants that opened as favorites for the matchup. New York opened as 2.5-point favorites, and the lines are all over the place mid-week, according to OddsShark. Some books have narrowed, with the Giants favored by just a single point, while others have expanded to have New York as 3-point favorites.

It's likely that odds makers consider the matchup relatively even, but the home-field advantage is swaying things slightly in favor of the Giants. The over/under for the matchup is set at 53.5 points, likely due to the fact that both teams have played poor defense and have turned the ball over on offense.
