    Help me with Eages Line for NFC Championship

    So now I see -2.5 Eagles. Is this sharp money taking the Eagles since the line went up from last night? Is this surprising? Is this an overreaction to the 49ers not scoring a lot against the Cowboys and the Eagles dismantling the Giants? Sharps usually do not overreact. Any advice/help would be appreciated.

    Eagles all day. Now SF has to go on the road. The Eagles have been the best team, and they will win.

    do you feel like the 49ers should have scored more though? i know they still won but i expected they would move the ball better.

    Eagles rely on running from two spots and SF shuts down the run.

    i don't think it's surprising in the sense that i was thinking the eagles would be around -4.5 against the cowboys, -3.5 against the niners. i would expect the number to climb just a little more. nothing against the niners, but they rattled off a 10 game winning streak against mediocre teams, with 7 of those games at home. a strong defense will do that for you. they were actually losing to seattle at the half a couple weeks ago and squeezed by dallas yesterday.

    now they have to go on the road and face a team that is better than them. the eagles had an extra week to rest before facing the giants (who didn't put up a fight) and they were able to relax sunday while the niners had to play, and now travel to play in colder weather. i think a lot of money will be on the niners at first, like the bills against the bengals.. but it will shift to the eagles big time on saturday into sunday.

    Going to be a difficult atmosphere for the San Francisco Ferries, cold and loud Philly.

    will be a very difficult game for the 49ers given what is at stake and the weather for sure

    dxp is that why you feel the eagles are now -2.5? it was -1.5 last night.

    This should have opened-3. Books respect SF. Philly has earned -3. They destroyed the Giants and they still didn't get-3.

    I read that some books said weeks ago that San Fran could open as a favorite against Philly

    49ers were lucky to even score that TD. Insanely lucky catch by Kittle, Purdy put the ball into Diggs hands and he dropped it, then a BS defensive holding call. Purdy is not good and once he loses to the Eagles he will probably finish his career as a backup. He looked awful last night. They've played absolute garbage teams ever since he took over. Dak was a disgrace too. Cooper Rush would've won that game for them simply because he doesn't turn the ball over.

    they could not run until the 4th q, shanahan did not want to put the game in purdy arm, luckily for him dallas o spurted all game. i think (unless there is bad weather) to be an offensive battle for both sides

    2.5 is the right number to have action on both sides, at 3 people would pound sf and drop the line and puts the middle in play

    Seems folks are forgetting that Gino Smith put up 23 points on the vaunted SF defense. Wait till Purdy arrives at the 'Linc'. The crowd will be much different there and will let him quickly know how they feel about SF. I'd be more scared of the Philly defense than the SF D.

    Sharp money was on Giants and Bills last week. Squares were on Eagles and Bengals.

    49ers played that type of football last postseason and they do well with it. They don't try to get in shootouts like the Chiefs do. Can they do it? this year they can but thats not their choice way. Makes sense when you trust your defense entirely.

    Is 23 points a lot now including a garbage time td that meant nothing? Because that vaunted Eagles defense had 40 dropped on them by the same vaunted cowboys offense that scrapped together 12 points a few days ago. Can't play the Giants every week.

    Good point although Hurts did not play in that one. I just think there's too much talk about the SF defense, They are the core of the team for sure but maybe the Philly plan is to try and get a lead and see if Purdy can bring his team from behind. Saw yesterday that MGM moved Philly to -3 -105 and it quickly came back to -2.5. Will be fun to watch to see who comes out on top. I think the line will close at -3 for Philly.

    eagles play some of the best zone defense i have seen in the league. they get sneaky int's. and they get sacks galore. purdy did not look good under pressure. when he had time, he made good plays. eagles avg 154 yds rushing with that great line and they give hurts plenty of time. purdy has only played 2 road games. sea and oak. purdy will have to be supreme to beat the eagles on the road.

    What's interesting is that last week the 49ers were slight favorites to win the NFC. The oddsmakers new this was most likely going to be the championship game so why are Eagles now favored to win the NFC

    I guess it's all based on how they looked last Sunday. 49ers had to grind one out against the Cowboys while the Eagles rolled over the Giants

    Bills were clearly the square play.

    Giants was people thinking they were sharp

    What would you rather have playoff experience or home field? Or does it even each other out?
