Why Bet Washington To Beat The Eagles
Washington lost two in a row, including a 31-23 defeat at the hands of the Cardinals last week. They dropped to 6-5-1 SU and 8-4 ATS this season. They average 25.3 points per game (10th) and give up 24.6 points per game (20th).
Washington averages 309.1 passing yards per game (2nd). QB Kirk Cousins (3811 yards, 21 TDs & 8 INTs) completed only 21 of 37 passes for 271 yards against the Cardinals. He threw a touchdown and was intercepted once. WR Jamison Crowder (58 rec, 767 yards, 7 TDs) continues to make a splash this season. He has caught four touchdowns in their last five games. Washington averages 109.5 rushing yards per game (11th). Newly minted starting rusher, Robert Kelley (112 car, 524 yards, 4 TDs) has run for 100-yards combined in the last two games.
Washington has the 23rd total defense in the NFL. They allow 255.0 passing yards per game (18th) and 114.3 rushing yards per game (22nd). They have recorded 30 sacks this season (7th). Will Compton has 97 tackles, and Ryan Kerrigan has 10.0 sacks.
Why Bet Philadelphia Eagles To Beat Washington
The Philadelphia Eagles have lost three in a row, including a 32-14 defeat to the short-handed Cincinnati Bengals last week. They are 5-7 SU and ATS this season. They average 22.2 points per game (19th) and allow 20.4 points per game (10th).
The Eagles average 228.2 passing yards per game (23rd). Second overall pick QB Carson Wentz has struggled lately. He has thrown three touchdowns and six interceptions over the Eagles last three losses.
“For a while, I thought he seemed totally unflappable. Now, in some of the more recent losses, do you sense that, ‘OK, he’s feeling this one. He’s feeling this one.’? Yeah,” said Eagles OC Frank Reich of Carson Wentz. “We’re all feeling it. And I think he was that young, naive — in a good sense — but still a very mature guy who came in and it was like, nothing is going to get this guy down. But it wears on you.”
Not having WR Jordan Matthews (57 rec, 686 yards, 3 TDs) out there is hurting the team. Matthews missed the game against the Bengals due to an ankle issue. His status for Sunday is questionable. Philadelphia averages 109.8 rushing yards per game (10th). RB Ryan Matthews (73 car, 339 yards, 1 TD) also missed the game against Cincinnati. He’s expected to play on Sunday.
Philadelphia has the 11th-ranked total defense in the league. They give up 245.0 passing yards per game (13th) and 100.9 rushing yards (16th). The Eagles have 26 sacks this season (14th). Nigel Bradham has 79 tackles, and Brandon Graham has 5.0 sacks.
