Eagles vs. Commanders, Monday at 8:15 p.m
Spread (ML) – Eagles -11 (-500); Commanders +11 (+375)
Total (O/U) – 44 points
Analysis: In Week 3, the Eagles’ defense crushed Carson Wentz to the tune of nine sacks, many of which were Wentz holding onto the ball too long. Taylor Heinicke has much better pocket awareness, which will likely lead to a more efficient passing game for Washington. The Eagles are coming off the bye and are as healthy as any team in the NFL.
Picks: Eagles -11, OVER 44
Passes (O/U) – Jalen Min 235.5; Taylor Heinicke 215.5
Analysis: It will be hard to say how Heinicke can lock in against this Eagles pass defense, which ranks third in the NFL and has allowed a QB to throw for more than 205 yards this season. Hurts has shot eight goals in his last three games.
Choose: It hurts
Rushing yards (O/U) – Miles Sanders 70.5, Hurts 40.5; Antonio Gibson 35.5, Brian Robinson 35.5
Analysis: Sanders has over 70 yards in 5-4. Hurts has gone 40 yards on 5-6. The Eagles run defense suffered without Jordan Davis in Week 9 in Houston, look for Brian Robinson to reap the benefits.
Selections: Hurts SUB; IN ADDITION TO ROBINSON
AJ Brown 70.5 DeVonta Smith 50.5
Terry McLaurin 50.5 Dallas Goedert 45.5
Curtis Samuel 40.5 Antonio Gibson 25.5
Analysis: Brown fails to reach 70 yards on 5-4. Smith had his best game of the season against Washington in Week 3 (8/169/1). Goedert has passed 60 meters in 5-4. Both Samuel and McLaurin have topped 50 yards in the last three games.
Selections: Goedert OVER, Smith OVER; McLaurin OVER, Samuel OVER
Miles Sanders -125 Jalen Hurts -105
AJ Brown +110 DeVonta Smith +190
Brian Robinson +200 Dallas Goedert +210
Terry McLaurin +230 Antonio Gibson +290
