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.
