It’s A Manning Thing: PointsBet NJ Boosting Eli Manning For Monday Night Football

Eli Manning is likely starting for the Giants on Monday’s NFL game. PointsBet NJ customers can wager on the QB’s total passing yards against the Eagles.

Would you bet on Eli Manning having a great game against the Philadelphia Eagles during Monday Night Football?

It’s looking like he will be stepping in for rookie Daniel Jones, who is battling a high-ankle sprain.

The news has caught on at PointsBet Sportsbook with the potential to benefit the New Jersey sports betting crowd.

Customers, especially Giants fans, can take advantage of this week’s Fade Darren Rovell booster.

Manning to throw for more than 249.5 passing yards has been boosted to +120 (from -105). The max bet is $100.

But is it a good bet?

We’re talking about the 2-10 G-Men here, and their last victory came on against the Washington Redskins during Week 4

That was way back on Sept. 29.

The game is taking place at Lincoln Financial Field. PointsBet has the Birds as a 10-point favorite.

PointsBet NJ welcomes Manning back

Giants head coach Pat Shurmur has said it’s “very likely” that Manning will start on Monday night.

This is his 16th season, the majority of which has been spent watching from the sidelines.  The team decided to go in a new direction following 28-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 2.

It was about seeing what Jones, their first-round pick, could do.

Manning has led the Giants to two Super Bowl titles (one of them spoiled the New England Patriots’ perfect season). His 116 victories rank No. 1 all-time among franchise quarterbacks.

But if we are talking just passing yards, he averaged 268.7 per game last season.

He passed for more than 280 yards in both games against the Birds last season, but Philadelphia won both.

Eagles still have NFL playoff hopes

From a Philadelphia perspective, besides the NFC East rivalry factor, their playoff hopes are on the line.

At 5-7, winning their final four games is key. Losing 37-31 to the 3-9 Miami Dolphins on Sunday did not help their cause. But with the Dallas Cowboys sitting at 6-6, the division is still a two-team race.

The Eagles have been inconsistent all season, including on the defensive side of the ball. They took the field in Miami as a 10-point favorite. Then Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick ended up throwing for 365 yards and three touchdowns.

So, the Birds will likely take the field with extra motivation to turn things around. They head into this matchup as losers of three-straight games.

Crazy things have been known to happen when the two teams meet. One of those matchups is even among the top games worth remembering.

However, the outcome of this one will have no impact on the PointsBet boost. It’s a Manning thing.

But wait, there is more.

Another FanDuel Sportsbook customer made the most of a $1 NFL parlay on Sunday. And, by the most, we mean finishing with a perfect card. Here it is:

Yes, there were a few upsets.

For instance, the Philadelphia Eagles were a 10-point road favorite against the Miami Dolphins. But it was the home team that walked away 37-31 winners.

Even punter Matt Haack threw a touchdown pass to the kicker Jason Sanders. Talk about things going the Dolphins way.

Plus, the previously winless Cincinnati Bengals pulled off a convincing 22-6 victory over the New York Jets.

The Houston Texans handed the New England Patriots their second loss of the season likely surprised some. The home team won 28-22 and had 21-9 advantage heading into the fourth quarter.

Monday Night Football parlay

Another NJ sports betting fan made out extremely well with Monday night’s game between the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks. 

This individual placed $500 on the Same Game Parlay bet slip that included:

  • Over 48.5 (+121)
  • Seahawks moneyline (-112)
  • Dalvin Cook touchdown score (+580)

The two teams combined for 67 points and the Seahawks won the game 37-30.

Plus, Cook scored the game’s first touchdown on a two-yard run. The running back ended up leaving the game midway through the third quarter with a shoulder injury.

Total these results and the customer got paid $14,249.

Fox Bet Signs Partnership With Philadelphia 76ers

Sixers have NJ & PA fans

foxbet 76ersThe Sixers are not the first Philly team to partner with an online casino or sports betting operator.

Earlier this year, the Philadelphia Eagles inked a multi-year partnership with Unibet Casino (NFL rules prohibit agreements related to sports betting).

Like Birds’ fans, the Sixers draw from both sides of the Walt Whitman Bridge. With Fox Bet operating in Pennsylvania, too, there is a bigger pool of potential players.

Adam Davis, the chief commercial officer for Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, elaborated on the deal:

“Fox Bet has masterfully honed its unique brand positioning in the US; an experienced, longstanding European sportsbook, a savvy media company, and now an affiliation with the 76ers that further endears its brand and product to the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey market and sports community.

adam davisRecognizing the passionate 76ers fan base, Fox Bet and our team look forward to amplifying a multi-tiered activation approach by creating dynamic, digital content and continuing to drive engagement with our brand, team and league.”

Plus, in celebration of the agreement, Fox Bet customers in PA and NJ will have access to special offers and promotions.

One of the current deals is $20 toward their first wager (following download and registration).

The Sixers are only 21 games into an 82-game schedule, so there is plenty of time to tip-off with Fox Bet.

Eagles Vs. Giants: Can Philadelphia Keep Its NFC East Title Hopes Alive?

The Philadelphia Eagles suffered an embarrassing loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. However, the 5-7 Eagles are still within a game for first place in the NFC East.

With four games to play, that means the playoffs are still a possibility and next week’s Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants has become a marquee matchup and a must-win for Philadelphia.

The 6-6 NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys’ Thanksgiving Day loss to the Buffalo Bills meant the Eagles could tie things up at the top of the division with a win over the woeful Dolphins Sunday.

Instead, Philadelphia laid an egg at Hard Rock Stadium in South Florida. They blew a 10-0 and 28-14 lead en route to a 37-31 loss to a now 3-9 team most thought was tanking this season.

However, the Eagles division title hopes did not die with this week’s punt in Miami.

Facing the 2-10 Giants twice, the 3-9 Washington Redskins and the Cowboys in Philadelphia means the Eagles have the potentially easier schedule to close things out. The Cowboys also get Washington, but they must face the 6-6 Chicago Bears and 7-5 Los Angeles Rams before the season is said and done.

The Eagles have not yet been mathematically eliminated from one of the two NFC Wild Card Playoff spots up for grabs. But with the 9-2 Seattle Seahawks, 8-3 Minnesota Vikings, the Bears, Rams, and 5-7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers ahead of Philadelphia in the Wild Card race, winning the NFC East title remains the team’s best possibility of getting in the postseason.

That makes beating the Giants next Monday night in Philadelphia is a must.

Eagles vs. Giants opening lines

Considering both team’s records, and the recent history of this bitter NFC East rivalry, most NJ sportsbooks have opened the Eagles versus Giants’ betting markets with Philadelphia as heavy favorites.

Eagles vs. Giants history

The Eagles versus Giants matchup is one of the most hotly contested in NFL history. There have been 174 games between these two NFC East rivals. The two teams stand knotted up at 86 wins, each with two ties.

However, the Eagles have dominated the matchup over the past five years. In fact, the Eagles have won five in a row and nine out of the past 10.

Last season, the Eagles pummeled the Giants 34-14 in New York in October. The convincing win came behind Eagles QB Carson Wentz‘s 278 passing yards and three TDs.

Then, Philadelphia won 25-22 on a Jake Elliott 43-yard, last-minute field goal in Philadelphia in late November.

Will these recent trends continue? Can the Eagles put the embarrassment in Miami behind them and stay in contention for the NFC East lead?

Top 5 Biggest Eagles Blowouts In Franchise History

While lopsided NFL games can be boring, sometimes it’s fun for fans to watch their favorite teams absolutely destroy an opponent.

That’s what happened in the biggest Eagles blowouts of all time.

Outstanding individual performances on the dates listed helped these regular-season games go down in Philadelphia Eagles’ lore. It took a whole team effort to produce such one-sided victories, however.

Top 5 biggest Eagles blowouts

In three regular-season games, the Eagles have won by a convincing 45-0 margin. Impressively, all three instances not only occurred in the same season but within mere weeks of each other.

Oct. 10, 1948, vs. the New York Giants

Simply put, the 1948 Eagles were one of the greatest teams in the franchise’s history and, they put that on display on this date for the home crowd.

1948 Philadelphia Eagles

They dismantled the Giants 45-0 thanks to three touchdowns (one on the ground, two through the air) by quarterback Tommy Thompson.

The Eagles’ defense allowed a mere 125 yards of total offense and forced five turnovers as they cut the Giants down to size. Fans who thought this win was impressive needed to buckle in; however, the Eagles were just getting started. They would not only replicate this victory but in some ways, build on it the very next time out.

Oct. 17, 1948, at Washington

VANBUREN 1948 Philadelphia Eagles
Steve Van Buren 1948-49

Eagles halfback Steve Van Buren would take his turn in the spotlight on this date.

Van Buren powered the Philly rushing attack to 218 yards and found the end zone himself three times in Philadelphia’s second consecutive 45-0 win.

The Eagles defense gave up a few more yards in this one, 213 to be exact. They did force five more turnovers, however.

After three more competitive games, the Eagles re-created this scenario once again. This time it came against a now-defunct NFL franchise.

Nov. 14, 1948, vs. the Boston Yanks

Thompson had arguably the best passing performance of the season in this 45-0 win, completing four touchdown passes to four different receivers. The Philly defense did its job again as well, allowing 169 yards and collecting three turnovers.

1948 Philadelphia Eagles

The 1948 Eagles went on to win the NFL championship (this was before the AFL-NFL merger, so there wasn’t a Super Bowl), compiling a 10-2-1 record.

It would be several decades before another Philadelphia team would come the closest to reaching a 45-point margin of victory.

Dec. 22, 2013, vs. the Chicago Bears

biggest eagles blowouts
Nick Foles leads Eagles to a 54-11 win.

In Week 16 of the 2013 season, Eagles’ fans got to watch their team move to 9-6 with a 54-11 drubbing of Chicago in one of the biggest Eagles blowouts in recent memory.

Philadelphia ran for 289 yards and scored four touchdowns via its running game to dominate the Bears.

Defensive lineman Trent Cole recorded three tackles for a loss in the game, and Chicago managed just 61 yards on the ground. In two games, the Eagles came very close to winning by 43 points but fell just short of that.

Two 42-points wins in Eagles’ history

Philadelphia secured six-touchdown wins twice in its history. Those two instances are:

  • Nov. 4, 1945, at Pittsburgh, 45-3
  • Nov. 8, 1981, at the St. Louis Cardinals, 52-10

Not every game that was so lopsided involving the Eagles has been a victory, however. The biggest Eagles blowouts in the opposite direction were games that Philadelphia fans probably want to forget.

Five biggest Eagles blowout losses

Twice, the Eagles have been on the other side of a six-touchdown difference. On three more occasions, Philadelphia opponents’ margins of victory were even larger.

Nov. 26, 1972, at the New York Giants

This day was unquestionably the worst ever to be an Eagles’ fan. The Giants found the end zone so often that there may not have any grass left from their cleats tearing up the turf.

When the clock mercifully ran out, the Giants claimed a 62-10 win. Philadelphia turned the ball over five times and allowed 503 yards of total offense in the loss.

It gets better for Eagles’ fans from here, but not a whole lot. Six years earlier, the Eagles suffered another humiliation at the hands of a current NFC East foe.

Oct. 9, 1966, at the Dallas Cowboys

Philadelphia allowed an astounding 652 yards of total offense to Dallas, and its only score came in garbage time. The Cowboys left their home field with a 56-7 win on this date.

The Eagles only allowed one sack and turned the ball over just once, but it was giving up 447 yards through the air that led to such a one-sided affair. This instance wasn’t the only time Philly lost by seven touchdowns, however.

Going back four more years, another Philadelphia team suffered a similar fate. Once again, it was a road game.

Nov. 11, 1962, at the Green Bay Packers

The defense was again an issue for the Eagles on this date. Green Bay racked up 628 yards of total offense and despite losing the turnover battle 2-1, won the game 49-0.

Bart Starr won this battle of legendary quarterbacks over Sonny Jurgensen, as Jurgensen could only muster 35 yards through the air compared to Starr’s 274. For the next most lopsided loss in Philly history, Eagles’ fans have to go back to the future.

Dec. 5, 2005, vs. the Seattle Seahawks

In this 42-0 drubbing, Philadelphia’s offense was mostly to blame. The Eagles turned the ball over six times, leading to three defensive touchdowns for Seattle.

Philly’s defense actually only allowed the Seahawks 194 yards of total offense in the game, an odd stat for a six-touchdown loss. The Eagles’ defense didn’t perform as admirably in the final game on this list.

Oct. 19, 1952, vs. the Cleveland Browns

Cleveland compiled 507 yards of total offense in this 49-7 win, and 301 of those yards came from the passing game. The Eagles turned the ball over six times in this contest, as well.

As difficult as dealing with the talents of Hall-of-Fame quarterback Otto Graham was for Philadelphia, there have been historical games in which both defenses stunk it up. Some Eagles games have flirted with 90 total points.

Top 5 highest-scoring Eagles games

donovan mcnabb eagles

The top five games in Philadelphia history in which both teams have scored early and often are:

  • Sept. 28, 1947: Eagles 45, Washington 42
  • Nov.15, 2010: Eagles 59, Washington 28
  • Nov. 30, 1997: Eagles 44, Cincinnati Bengals 42
  • Dec.13, 2009: Eagles 45, New York Giants 38
  • Nov. 22, 1992: Eagles 47, New York Giants 34

That 59 points on Nov. 15, 2010, is the most by an Eagles team in any regular-season game.

Philly has scored 56 points three times

(10/7/1950, 10/25/1953, 9/23/2007)

The 54 points against the Bears on Dec. 22, 2013, is next on the list.

The biggest Eagles blowouts ever are memorable games because of the point differentials. Whether those memories create joy or envoke pain depends on who is doing the remembering.

Jets vs Bengals: NY Playoff Push Makes This A Marquee Matchup

After a 34-3 dismantling of the Oakland Raiders this week, the Jets have won three in a row.

Somehow, the once hapless and winless Jets are now 4-7.

jets vs bengals

The other two wins in the Jets winning streak came against the New York Giants and Washington Redskins. The once dysfunctional Jets offense scored 34 points in each of those games as well.

Jets QB Sam Darnold was an efficient 20 for 29 for 315 yards and two TDs against Oakland. Plus, the Jets defense was equally impressive. They held the Raiders to just a first-quarter field goal and only 208 total yards.

Now, the same Jets team that started out the year as a laughing stock, with its franchise quarterback sidelined by mononucleosis, could now realistically run the table, end the season 9-7, and make the NFL Playoffs as a Wild Card.

Can the Jets run the table?

The Jets face the winless Cincinnatti Bengals and currently 2-9 Miami Dolphins over the next two weeks. Win both and they’ll be within a game of .500.

Then, it’ll be a tough test against the playoff-bound Baltimore Ravens and MVP candidate Lamar Jackson. Finally, the Jets finish things up against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills.

The +50000 (DraftKings) to +150000 (William Hill) you can get on the Jets winning the Super Bowl is a longshot at most NJ gambling sites.

However, making a small bet is looking less like burning money and more like a shrewd move than it did.

The Jets will likely need to win all five of their remaining games just to get in the postseason. That all starts with keeping the Bengals winless this week.

It’s hard to think of a Jets vs. Bengals game as a marquee matchup. However, as long as the Jets keep winning and keeping the dream of a postseason berth alive, every game from here on out must be considered one.

Jets vs Bengals lines

To no one’s surprise, the Jets started out the week as road favorites against Cincinnati at most NJ sports betting sites.

Jets vs Bengals history

The Jets have faced the Bengals 26 times and lead the series with a 17-9 record.

Although, Cincinnati has won the last two in a row.

This includes a tight 23-22 win in New Jersey the last time the two teams met in 2016. Andy Dalton was behind the center for Cincinnati in that one, going 23 for 30 for 366 yards.

Bengals Head Coach Zac Taylor announced this week Dalton would start again this week against the Jets. Taylor benched Dalton the past three games in favor of rookie Ryan Finley.

However, Dalton also threw for 325 yards and five touchdowns in a 49-9 drubbing of the Jets back in 2013.

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.

Tune in to CBS to see if the Jets can keep their playoff hopes alive, push the Bengals to 0-12, and continue to give longshot futures bettors a chance at turning as little as $10 into $15,010.
