It was a second straight 2-1 showing here a week ago in underdog corner as the Denver Broncos won outright as 9.5-point dogs against the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles rallied late to cover a touchdown-plus point spread against the visiting Baltimore Ravens. The lone swing and miss was an ugly one Monday night as the charitable Dallas Cowboys gave the ball away four times in a 38-10 beatdown at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals, who covered the 2.5-point spread by 25.5.
We’ll need a few more weeks like Week 6, though, as our season record is still only 6-12.

New York Giants +4.5 (-110) at Philadelphia Eagles: Thursday Night Football
The NFC Least is the league’s running joke this season with the division’s four teams a combined 5-18-1 straight up and 8-16 against the spread.
QB Carson Wentz and the Eagles have played better of late, but the injuries continue to mount, especially on the offensive line and skill positions. TE Zach Ertz is out Thursday night and leading rusher Miles Sanders is likely to join him.
Philly covered the spread in two of its last three after a 0-3 ATS start, but both of those have come as a TD-plus underdog. As a favorite, the Eagles haven’t fared quite as well, posting a 10-16 ATS
