Spread Your Wings: Week 15 Betting Advisory
This week features a throwback to an old NFC East matchup as the Eagles travel to Glendale to take on the Cardinals. This bird battle features two quarterbacks in Kyler Murray and Jalen Hurts who put up ridiculous numbers at Oklahoma in college with the former winning the Heisman. Will this be reminiscent of a Big XII shootout? That remains to be seen.
Week 14 @ ARI
Spread: ARI -6.5
Moneyline PHI +230; ARI -275
Smart Money: ARI -6.5
The Eagles defense has two very difficult tasks this week: keep Kyler in the pocket, don't let Hopkins break you. Both of these, especially the latter will prove very hard for an Eagles defense that is missing two starting cornerbacks and a starting safety. This puts a lot of responsibility on Jalen Hurts and the offense to keep up. In the end, the pace might be too much to handle. Maybe the Eagles can make it a shootout, and if the game plan is anything like last week, the over looks pretty good too.
NYJ @ LAR -17
PFF's best team vs their worst team. I don't like this line; I feel like 17 is a lot. But my winning philosophy is never to bet on the Jets, and with a -16 points differential on the season I'm confident the Jets can come through for me.
JAX @ BAL -13
The Ravens will cover this. After a classic against Cleveland last Monday, Lamar and Baltimore will beat the cramps out of Jacksonville. But I'm sure the folks down in Duval won't mind that too much.
PIT @ CIN +13
Do I think the Steelers will lose? No. But do I think they're a top team in the NFL? Also no. If the Steelers receivers can stop watching 2018 Eagles film and learn how to catch then I'd probably give them the cover, but until then, we're on to Cincinnati.
