The Plays

Spread: Eagles (+7, -108)

This number is a tricky one and also worries me. Nothing has changed on either side of the ball drastically to move the line from +3 at opening to +7 now. I love Philly getting a touchdown here. Wentz can take control and has better weapons around him that he can keep the score close or even win outright. The line is something to definitely keep an eye on, a half point either way will be huge, if it was 6.5 i would lean on SF, but 7.5 or more, I would hammer Philly.

Moneyline – PASS

I know who passes on a money line bet, but I am. San Fran has looked better than expected with Mullens at QB. They don’t seem to be missing Bosa, as they held the Giants and Jets under 14 points the last two weeks. This would be an easy win for the Niners, but at the price, it’s not worth laying the juice. If Wentz and the Eagles come out flying, (pun intended) then maybe a live bet on the 49ers would make sense if the price is right, but I don’t see Philly winning this game by any means.

Over / Under – UNDER 46 (-110)

Both teams love to run the ball, and they can run it effectively. Expect a quick pace to the game, with each team running the ball constantly, allowing to continually run, making this a low -scoring game and possibly one of the lowest between them.
