    YTD : 6-5 (+.50 units)

    These offenses don't justify this number.

    The Giants o-line is a mess and Eagles offense is overrated.

    I tend to agree with you, but I am not nearly as confident. Both teams have awful defenses. I think the poor defenses are what is driving this number

    100% correct. Bad defenses (for the most part, it is pass defenses) generally do drive the o/u line.

    Although, one thing I have learned with betting the NFL is that the effect of bad offenses will trump bad defenses.

    With two poor defenses and an offense that can strike quickly (Philadelphia) this is risky. Also throw in the Eagles poor secondary and Victor Cruz/Hakeem Nicks and it could be 14-14 by the end of the 1st quarter.

    The Eagles rank 2nd in the NFL in total yards, 1st in yards per play, 1st in rushing yards and 1st in 1st downs.

    So calling them overrated is a reach. Their problems have been in the red zone and if they solve that? Watch out.
