Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (+3)
Regular Season Record: 2-4
Perhaps the Eagles need to ask less from Jalen Hurts, who seems to be doing so much on offense. It’s clearly not working for Philly, as the team has lost four of its last five games. The latest was a 28-22 defeat against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home in Week 6. Then again, Hurts is a talented dual-threat quarterback who can really do exciting things on the field. Hurts passed for a touchdown with an interception in the Tampa Bay game and rushed for 44 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries. There’s an opportunity for Hurts and running back Miles Sanders to light the field on fire with their cleats this week, as they will be up against a Las Vegas team that’s allowing over 130 rushing yards per game and 4.6 yards per carry. Hurts’ protection unit is also bound to get better with veteran right tackle Lane Johnson joining the team again after missing a few games.
The under is 6-2 in the Eagles’ last eight games against a team with a winning record.
Betting on the Las Vegas Raiders (-3)
Regular Season Record: 4-2
How about the Raiders, huh? They played in Week 7 as though they were not affected at all by the Jon Gruden situation, as Las Vegas traveled to Mile High City and left with a 34-24 win over the Denver Broncos. Derek Carr amassed 341 passing yards and two touchdowns without an interception on 18/27 completions, while Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake each scored a rushing TD. Henry Ruggs looked fluid in the Raiders’ first game under interim head coach Rich Bisaccia, as the former Alabama Crimson Tide product went off for 97 yards and a touchdown on three catches. Ruggs is a boom or bust deep threat, but don’t be surprised if he and Carr hook up again for a huge play against the Eagles, who are 29th in the NFL with an opponents’ pass completion percentage of 71.5. Jacobs and Drake can also have their way against Philly’s run defense that’s ranked 28th with 135.5 rushing yards allowed per contest.
The over is 5-0 in the Raiders’ last five Week 7 games.
The Eagles win, 29-26.
