Bet NFL Future Odds

The Eagles barely edged out the Redskins 27-24 as a 10-point favorite in Week 12, as the combined score went over the posted total of 40.5. Donovan McNabb threw for 260 yards with a touchdown and an interception for Philadelphia, while DeSean Jackson caught two passes for 41 yards and a touchdown.

The Falcons had to stage a dramatic comeback to beat the Buccaneers 20-17 as a 13-point favorite in Week 12. The combined score fell under the posted total of 46 points as Chris Redman finished with 243 passing yards and two touchdowns in place of the injured Matt Ryan. Roddy White also hauled in five receptions for 57 yards and the game-winning touchdown.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Eagles 5.5-point road favorites over the Falcons in Week 13. The over/under total for this game has been set at 44 points.

The Falcons are in trouble as Ryan has been ruled out and Michael Turner seems unlikely to play as well. With two of their best offensive starters out, Atlanta could have a tough time keeping pace in this contest.

The Falcons defense will struggle slowing McNabb and the weapons he has on offense. Atlanta’s cornerbacks are some of the worst in the league and its defensive line struggles at times generating pressure. We don’t expect John Abraham to suddenly snap out of the season-long funk that he’s been in, so Philadelphia should roll.

Redman had a nice game last week, but the Eagles aren’t the Bucs and the backup QB is going to have trouble finding open receivers. Given how effective Philly is at blitzing, Redman is a dead man walking.

We love the Eagles –5.5 in this matchup and recommend taking the over 44. Atlanta is 1-8-1 against the spread in its last 10 games when playing Philadelphia, while the over has hit in four of Philadelphia’s last six games on the road.

Our NFL Week 13 Free Pick for this matchup is: PHILADELPHIA EAGLES –5.5 and OVER 44.
