In NaTuReB0Y's post below he has Eagles favored by seven points, Colts by seven, etc.
Giants vs. Eagles (-7)
Chiefs vs. Colts (-7)
Cowboys vs. Seahawks (-3)

Jets vs. Patriots (-8 1/2)
(tie-breaker game)
So, in order for the Eagles to "win" the game in the gambling world they have to score seven or more points than the Giants. For the Giants to win with the spread the Eagles have to lose outright or win by fewer than seven points.

I think I have that right.
