The Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts wrap up Week 2 of the NFL season. Find out where the best betting value lies for our NFL picks.

Why The Game Will Stay Under
Because not everything has made sense in the first couple weeks of the season. We thought the Sunday nighter was going to be a high-scoring affair but that wasn’t the case. The Eagles got off to a horrible start on defense last week and will probably be focused on making sure that doesn’t happen again. Same for the Colts who gave up 31 last week to the Denver Broncos. That might keep this game 'Under'.

 

Why The Game Will Go Over
Because neither team plays any defense. If the Jags scored 17 on the Eagles in Philadelphia, the Colts should get to 30. As for the Colts, their defense is hurting – especially without their best sack specialist, Robert Mathis, who is suspended.

There’s so many offensive weapons on each side that with the game being indoors, this should be an entertaining track meet. Expect a big game from LeSean McCoy and Andrew Luck as both teams get close to 30.

 

Outlook
We saw the total open at 52.5 on the NFL odds and has climbed to 53.5 at The Greek. That seems to make sense. Neither team is known for their defense and both should be moving the ball up and down the field. The Eagles are always effective when they run the ball well and all signs point to McCoy having a big game. As for the Colts, they are carried by their offense and they’ll be in desperation mode to avoid an 0-2 hole.

Although we are facing a relatively big number on Monday night, take the over for your NFL pick in this spot. Two good offense and two suspect defenses is the story in this one.

MLB Pick: Over 46.5
