Monday Night Football Betting Preview – September 9, 2013

Betting Preview: Monday Night Football

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins

When: 6:55 PM ET, September 9, 2013

Where: FedExField, Landover, Maryland


Money: Eagles (+165) vs. Redskins (-195)

Spread: Eagles (+4) vs. Redskins (-4)

Over/Under: 53.0

Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles:

Whether Michael Vick can efficiently anchor new coach Chip Kelly’s offense will be the subject of scrutiny in this season opener for the Eagles—and most likely for the rest of the season.

Much has been said about debuting Eagles coach Kelly, whose offensive schemes are expected to improve Philadelphia’s scoring; the Eagles only averaged 17.5 points per game in 2012. That offense will be tested against Washington, who allowed 24.3 PPG (22nd in NFL) last season.

Philadelphia has lost its last two games against the Redskins, but recent trips to Washington have been successful. The Eagles are 3-1 SU and ATS in their last four games at FedExField. Bet now on the Philadelphia Eagles.

Betting on the Washington Redskins:

The guessing game is over. Robert Griffin III will officially start in the Redskins’ home opener against the Eagles. Before tearing his knee ligaments in Washington’s playoff loss last season, the Redskins were on cruise control, winning seven straight games both SU and ATS.

Now with RG3 back in the mix just in time, the Redskins look to start their trail back to the division title. They completely dominated the NFC East last season as they produced 5-1 SU and 6-0 ATS records against the Giants, Cowboys, and Eagles.

The Redskins pose a big threat to Chip Kelly’s dream of winning his NFL debut given that Washington has also been a very tough team to crack at home lately. The Redskins are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last 5 home games. Bet now on the Washington Redskins.


Houston Texans vs San Diego Chargers

When: 10:20 PM ET, September 9, 2013

Where: Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego


Money: Texans (-245) vs. Chargers (+205)

Spread: Texans (+5.5) vs. Chargers (-5.5)

Over/Under: 44.0

Betting on the Houston Texans:

The Texans remain relatively unchanged from their 12-4 campaign last season. Star linebacker Brian Cushing, who was out for the majority of last season after tearing his ACL, will boost their already sturdy defense with his return. Running back Arian Foster missed the entire preseason but is also expected to play.

However, veteran Ed Reed, who signed from the Baltimore Ravens, is questionable due to a hip injury.

Houston opens the season on the road, where it’s 6-3 SU in its last 9 games. Perhaps due to its combination of great defense and conservative offense, the under is 4-1 in the Texans’ last 5 games overall. Bet now on the Houston Texans.

Betting on the San Diego Chargers:

The Chargers begin a new regime with first-time head coach Mike McCoy. McCoy was Tim Tebow’s offensive coordinator during his one breakout year in Denver. His first task will be to protect former Pro Bowl quarterback Philip Rivers, who was sacked a whopping 49 times last year, from JJ Watt and the ferocious Texans defense.

First round pick Manti Te’o will be unavailable for this game due to a sprained foot.

Despite being 4-0 in the all-time series, San Diego is slated as a home underdog on Monday Night. The total has gone over in 9 of the Chargers’ last 13 games. Bet now on the San Diego Chargers.
