Skins vs. Eagles Pick

NFC East rivals square off at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday when the Philadelphia Eagles host the Washington Redskins at 1:00PM ET.

Bet NFL Week 12

The Redskins gave a valiant defensive effort in Week 11, but lost the Cowboys 7-6 as an 11-point underdog. Quarterback Jason Campbell threw for 256 yards with an interception for Washington, while Rock Cartright caught seven passes for 73 yards. The combined score fell under the posted total of 41.5 points.

The Eagles edged out the Bears 24-20 as a 3.5-point favorite in Week 11, as the combined score fell under the posted total of 47 points. Donovan McNabb threw for 244 yards with two touchdowns and an interception for Philadelphia, while DeSean Jackson hauled in eight passes for 107 yards and a touchdown.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made the Eagles 9-point favorites over the Redskins in Week 12. The over/under total for this game has been set at 40.5 points.

Philadelphia appears to be a strong play in this matchup. The Eagles are 12-6 against the spread in their last 18 games and 6-2 against the number in their last eight games at home. Conversely, Washington is just 4-11-3 against the spread in its last 18 games.

The Redskins are dealing with injuries on both sides of the ball, especially at running back. In the end, they won’t have enough to compete with a Philadelphia team playing for a postseason berth and coming off a strong road effort in Chicago.

McNabb and Jackson burned Washington for big plays in the first meeting and there’s no reason to think it won’t happen again Sunday – especially if DeAngelo Hall doesn’t play for the Redskins. We don’t expect the Redskins to hold the Eagles to only seven points as they did last Sunday to the Cowboys.

Our free pick prediction for this matchup is the Eagles –9 and the under 40.5. Washington’s offense has been non-existent of late and they could struggle again on Sunday facing a stout Philly defense.

Our NFL Week 12 Free Pick for this matchup is: PHILADELPHIA EAGLES -9 and UNDER 40.5.
