The Eagles 27-17 win loss to the Giants Sunday tightened NFC East race and led to a huge change regarding their odds to win the division.
Per PointsBet, the Giants are now at +300 to win the NFC East. Their odds before Sunday’s win were +1000.
Meanwhile, the Eagles’ odds went from -333 to -162.
The Dallas Cowboys are at +700, while the Washington Football Team (who lost to the Detroit on a last-second field goal on Sunday) saw their odds go from +600 to +750.
While the Giants clearly have a decent change to win the putrid NFC East, getting to 6-10 or 7-9 will not be easy.
Big Blue has a favorable matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals after their bye week, but it gets tough after that.
Their four games after the Bengals are all against contenders — the Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Browns, and Baltimore Ravens — before they wrap up the season against the Dallas Cowboys.
