Despite the Eagles being the favorites in Vegas, most experts have picked the Giants to beat Philadelphia in Week 4.

The Philadelphia Eagles are set to host the defending Super Bowl champion Giants on Sunday night, and despite having home field advantage, many experts believe it will be the Giants coming away victorious instead of the Eagles.

Over at ESPN, nine of the picks went in favor of the Giants, while only five panelists felt it would be the Eagles coming away with a victory. Yahoo! is torn on the game, with the four total picks split at two for each team. CBS Sports saw six of eight panelists pick the Giants, giving the visiting team 17 of the possible 26 picks from those three sets of experts.

SB Nation's NFL editor Joel Thorman has also picked the Giants to come out on top this Sunday, and he's given the following as his reasoning:

A nice Sunday night treat in a battle for first place in the NFC East. The Eagles' defense was playing well until allowing 27 points to the Cardinals last weekend. Michael Vick and the Eagles' offense haven't been consistent enough to make me think they can outscore the Giants. New York remains in first place.

Despite the Giants being the trendy pick amongst the experts this week, the Eagles are still considered a slight favorite by the bookmakers. With the early lead in the NFC East on the line, it should be a fantastic game to watch.

The game will be televised on NBC, and it's set to kickoff at 8:20 p.m. ET on Sunday night.
