If you're going to bet this eagerly anticipated prime-time showdown -- in which the Eagles are favored by 1 -- you need to see what our advanced projection model has to say. The model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times.
In a straight-up, pick'em format, our proprietary computer model went 176-80 last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Office Pool players in 2016 and 2017, performing better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Additionally, it went 48-34 on A-rated picks against the spread last season, and $100 bettors who followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000.
It went a blistering 11-4 on its Week 4 picks straight-up, and nailed three of its four top-rated selections, including Kansas City (-3.5) over Denver. It's now 10-3 on top-rated picks this season, extending its run to a blistering 59-36.
Now, it has simulated Eagles vs. Giants to produce strong picks against the spread and Over-Under. We will tell you that the model is leaning toward the Over (44), but its much stronger play in on the side. Its bold point-spread pick hits nearly 60 percent of the time. You absolutely need to see it before you lock in your own picks.
