Lines last updated at 12:20 p.m. ET.
Giants OVER 1.5 field goals made (-129)
Scoring has been a struggle for the Giants this season with an average of 16.8 points per game and eight total touchdowns through six contests.
In the red zone, it's been especially brutal for QB Daniel Jones and Co. as New York has converted only 4-of-16 red-zone drives into TDs.
It's all led to plenty of field goals, though, as veteran kicker Graham Gano has hit on 15-of-16 attempts, including 6-of-7 from 40 yards or more, to rank fourth in the league in field goals made.
Kick in some cash on the Over here.
TE Evan Engram OVER 37.5 receiving yards (-115)
As fantasy owners of the Giants tight end know all too well, Engram hasn't lived up to expectations with only 20 receptions for 177 yards and no TDs on 35 targets so far.
Thursday night presents a get-right matchup against the Eagles, who are allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends, including the fifth-most yards per game at 62.8.
Engram has topped 37.5 yards only once all season, but the juicy matchup is ripe for a breakout and an Over wager.

Engram to score a TD (+162)
We'll tack on a correlated prop bet here as six of the 11 aerial TDs allowed by Philly this season have been reeled in by tight ends. Only the Atlanta Falcons, with seven, have allowed more scoring receptions to opposing TEs.
After catching a combined 12 TD passes in his first three seasons, Engram has yet to find paydirt this season, but we'll bank on No. 1 coming Thursday night in prime time.
Daniel Jones and Eagles QB Carson Wentz both to finish with 15+ rushing yards (-136)
It's a quarterback "leg" parlay here, and it's priced at -136 for good reason.
Jones is New York's leading rusher on the year with 204 yards on 27 attempts and has rushed for at least 21 yards in five of six contests.
Wentz meanwhile, trails only sidelined RB Miles Sanders on the Eagles with 172 yards on 28 attempts and 162 of those yards have come in the last four games.
Giants UNDER 23.5 points (-189)
As aforementioned, the G-Men are averaging only 16.8 points per outing. They've topped 20 points only once, and that 34-point outburst came against the Dallas Cowboys' league-worst scoring defense.
Philly is surrendering 29.2 points per contest and each of its six foes have scored at least 20, but the Eagles also have faced some high-powered attacks in the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers and Los Angeles Rams.
So while the Giants could very well easily enjoy their second scoring "outburst" of the season, that likely will still fall short of the 23.5 total here.
