Antonio Gibson rushing yards: Under 50 -115
$100 returns $186
This isn’t a knock on Gibson as much as it is anticipating the narrative of the game. The Eagles offense, as we all know, can put up points in bunches. If this happens against a volatile Washington team, then we can expect Carson Wentz to spend most of the game throwing from behind, meaning that Gibson may not have too much time to make an impact as a runner at least.
He’s also had under 60 rushing yards in both games so far this season.
Eagles total team touchdowns: Over 3.5 +130
$100 returns $230
The Eagles put up 37 against the Lions and looked like a well-oiled machine against the Vikings.
The Commanders are giving up over 400 yards per game so far and have conceded a whopping 58 points. Jalen Hurts seems to be dashing into the endzone for fun at the moment and it’s hard to imagine that this offense will stagnate here.
Carson Wentz over 0.5 interceptions -165
$100 returns $160
Carson Wentz throwing from behind = Carson Wentz needing longer developing plays = Carson Wentz making dumb decisions. It’s a tale as old as time. If Darius Slay made mince meat of Justin Jefferson, he should have a field day against an erratic passer.
Miles Sanders to score a touchdown +125
$100 returns $225
The Miles Sanders breakout train is rolling down the track. While he didn’t score a touchdown in week 2, he did put up 80 yards. Washington’s run defense should be pretty solid, but it’s yet to face a quarterback like Jalen Hurts and his presence alone should at least create some holes for Sanders to burst through, while defenders look on, unsure whether to bite on the RPO and risk Hurts runing free, or sit back and be punished by a running back who can go 0-100 in seconds.
Jalen Hurts total scrimmage yards over 300 -115
$100 returns $186
This isn’t passing yards, it’s total scrimmage yards which means we include his rushing totals as well. Hurts is averaging 288 passing yards and over 70 rushing yards per game. Something tells me this is going to fly past 300 on Sunday.
