I’ve been telling everyone how fraudulent the Philadelphia Eagles have been this season so I’m going to continue to bet against them.
The major thing working against them is their defense has devolved from an average unit to a straight up bad unit. They rank 24th in opponent yards per play, 27th in opponent EPA per play, 20th in opponent success rate, and DEAD LAST in the NFL in opponent third down conversion rate.
They allow teams to convert 47.27% of third downs into first downs. Disgusting.
Those aren’t the kind of numbers that are going to stack up well against the Cowboys. Let’s also not forget the Cowboys largely outplayed the Eagles in Philadelphia earlier this season, out-gaining them 5.8 yards per play to 4.9 yards per play.
I’ll lay the points with the Cowboys on Sunday. — Iain MacMillan
You may think this is too many points in a division rivalry game, but let’s not forget that the San Francisco 49ers beat this Seattle Seahawks team handily on Thanksgiving.
Since the bye Week the 49ers have wins by 31 over the Jacksonville Jaguars, 13 over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 18 (on the road) against these Seahawks and 23 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
It’s hard to build a much more impressive resume than that, and the Seahawks are in trouble, losing three straight to fall to 6-6 on the season.
The 49ers are also an insane 21-0 with a +363 point differential when all of their stars are healthy on offense, which is the case this week.
Laying the 10.5 is a no-brainer for me this week. — Peter Dewey
