Vegas favors Giants, Panthers, Titans, Steelers in divisional matchups

Published on January 5, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

The New York Giants are favored to beat the division rival Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the NFL playoffs, according to Las Vegas oddsmakers.

The Giants, the top seed in the NFC, are 4 1/2-point favorites over the Eagles, according to Las Vegas Sports Consultants, which advises casinos on betting lines. Sports Consultants also lists New York as the favorite to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

Philadelphia will visit Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Sunday after their 26-14 win over the Minnesota Vikings. The Eagles have won five of their last six games. New York was idle after earning a first-round bye with the conferenceís best record, 12-4.

“They’ve played twice, and both games were close, but it’s just such a huge advantage for the Giants to have the off week,” said Mike Seba, Sports Consultants’ senior oddsmaker.

The Eagles beat the Giants in their most-recent meeting, a 20-14 road-win on Dec. 7 that was New York’s only home loss of the season. The Giants defeated the Eagles 36-31 in Philadelphia a month earlier.

The Carolina Panthers are favored by 10 points over the Arizona Cardinals in the other NFC second-round matchup, scheduled for Saturday in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Panthers, like New York, were idle this past weekend after earning a first-round bye. The Cardinals beat the Atlanta Falcons 30-24 two days ago.

In the AFC, the top-seeded Tennessee Titans are 3-point favorites over the Baltimore Ravens, who advanced with a 27-9 win over the Miami Dolphins yesterday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 6-point favorites as they host the San Diego Chargers in the other AFC game. The Chargers topped the Indianapolis Colts 23-17 in overtime.
