Spread Your Wings: Week Four Betting Line
Even though this is the fourth week of the season, and the Eagles are still winless (0-2-1), this week's game against San Francisco is the first this season in which Philadelphia is not favored to win. That is not ideal since the Eagles have been favored to win each game, and have not won any, they're 0-3 against the spread (ATS) which is the only record this column is concerned with.
Week Three @ San Francisco 49ers
Spread: SF -7
ML: SF -325; PHI +265
Total: o/u 46
Smart Money: SF Moneyline
This is painful to say but it's very hard to bet with the Eagles in this one. Now I was torn between the ML and under 46 because this game feels like it'll be very slow and defensive. But at the same time, the Eagles could decide to start scoring points, taking advantage of a banged-up 49ers defense. I'm not sure about the spread; the Eagles are 0-3 this year but they are going up against an equally beaten up San Francisco team.
ARI -3 @ CAR
The Cardinals are 2-1 ATS this season and with their 5.3 point differential vs the sans-McCaffery Panthers -4.3 point differential, this line seems pretty safe.
SEA -6 @ MIA
While I give all due respect to Fitzmagic, Russel Wilson's Seahawks are 3-0 this season ATS and look like a runaway best team in the NFC. Seattle winning by a touchdown doesn't seem unrealistic.
NE @ KC o53
The Chiefs have not covered the over once this season. That is not a sentence one can say following their matchup with the Patriots. This is the one to do it as New England is 2-1 over-under. 85% of tickets have over 53, and mine will be one.
