Philadelphia Eagles  players

Something is going to have to give when the Redskins and Eagles collide at Lincoln Financial Field. Here’s a mini-betting preview complete with NFL picks.

Washington Redskins vs Philadelphia Eagles

Point Spread Value

Jay Grudgen gave his side a right good bollocking last weekend following the 31-23 loss to the Cardinals. Nevertheless, the Redskins are 8-4-0 ATS on the season with a 0.7 winning margin and +1.2 differential versus the spread. Guess it's enough to send Washington into week 14 as the nominal road chalk across most sports betting platforms. That and the fact that the Eagles haven't dazzled recently. Falling to a third double-digit loss they sink well and truly to the bottom of the highly competitive NFC East.

Still, perhaps the Eagles are being prematurely written off. If there's one glimmer of hope, it's a 4-1-0 ATS mark at home that includes an 11.2 winning margin and +10.2 differential versus the spread. Wins over the Browns, Steelers, Vikings, and Falcons, no less. Home advantage has proven to be the charm before so it's reasonable to assume it could be again.

The Survivor

By the stats, the Eagles with a 5-7-0 SU record on the season cut a poor figure. However, they are 4-1-0 SU at home and while they might not have much to play for anymore in the broad spectrum of the season they can certainly play spoilsports. Redskins have lost two straight and last week was a bit of a gong show in Arizona.

Game Totals

Washington Redskins are top of the league in total betting along with the Oakland Raiders and Atlanta Falcons at 10-2-0. The offense is clearly the name of the game and the Redskins underscore that mark with a +2.2 differential versus the total and five straight overs in their last five games. The Eagles are split on a 6-6-0 OVER record but the last four games have gone 1-3-0 in O/U betting. The offense is just not clicking as it did at the start of the season and Carson Wentz is struggling to put up the points (the average points scored in the last three games is 14). It's not all down to the rookie. Defense is coming apart too and conceding an average of 28.3 points per game.


Free NFL Pick: Over 46.5 (-105)
