Best Props for Giants Eagles

Giants QB Daniel Jones

Under 232.5 Passing Yards (-112 DraftKings)

Jones ranks 22nd in passing yards despite throwing the 11th-most attempts so far. Through 19 career games, he’s now averaging 223.7 passing yards.

A picture of inefficiency, his:

  • QB Rating of 71 ranks 42nd at the position
  • Completion percentage of 61% ranks 39th
  • Yards/Att of 6.1 ranks 38th

It’s added up to a lot of profit in the prop market… for under bettors. Not many passers have managed to underperform their already-meager expectations quite like Jones.

Through six weeks, his average Passing Yards O/U is 247.7, but his average actual result is 203.8.  He’s now 1-5 to the under on his yardage prop, dropping five-straight.

Week Player Opp Line Actual Result
Week 6 Daniel Jones WAS 242.5 112 Under
Week 5 Daniel Jones DAL 265.5 222 Under
Week 4 Daniel Jones LAR 247.5 190 Under
Week 3 Daniel Jones SF 239.5 179 Under
Week 2 Daniel Jones CHI 245.5 241 Under
Week 1 Daniel Jones PIT 239.5 279 Over

Volume is a concern for Jones. After hitting 40 and 41 pass attempts in his first two games, he’s averaging 30 attempts over his last four.

The Giants now rank ninth-last in total pass attempts with 33.5/game, and unless Philadelphia’s shorthanded offense can run up the score a little, Jones will likely stay in the 35-range tonight.

At a career YPA of 6.4, that puts him at 224 yards, which is also right about where projections have him.

The Matchup

The Eagles aren’t nearly as banged up on defense as they are on offense, and despite being a pass-funnel defense, they’re still allowing the 12th-fewest passing yards per game (229.7).

That’s in part because their games have been slow-paced and ugly, which has helped them to a solid record when it comes to keeping opposing QBs under their prop totals.

They’re 5-1 to the under in defending Passing Yard props, with only a volume-fueled Joe Burrow hitting his over.

Player Bet Type Line Actual Week Result
Lamar Jackson Passing Yards 225.5 186 Week 6 Under
Ben Roethlisberger Passing Yards 270.5 229 Week 5 Under
Nick Mullens Passing Yards 268.5 200 Week 4 Under
Joe Burrow Passing Yards 260.5 312 Week 3 Over
Jared Goff Passing Yards 272.5 267 Week 2 Under
Dwayne Haskins Passing Yards 222.5 178 Week 1 Under

Don’t expect much volume or pace tonight, either.

These teams combine for an average of 64 plays per game, which is the second-lowest total of any game this week. 


With Jones’ most dangerous downfield weapon Darius Slayton dealing with a nagging foot injury, on top of a tough matchup with Darius Slay, this is a tough spot for Jones to exceed passing expectations.

I’d play the yardage line down to 227.5, and at this current line, would pay as much as -130.
