Philadelphia Eagles Betting Trends

The Eagles are 0-7-1 against the spread in their last eight games inW eek 4, are 1-4 against the number in their last five games in October, and have failed to cover in seven of their last nine road games. They're also just 10-22-1 against the spread in their last 33 games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.

Los Angeles Chargers Betting Trends

The Chargers are just 0-4 against the spread in their last four games versus a team with a winning record, are 0-7-1 against the number in their last eight games overall, and have failed to cover in 18 of their last 23 home games. That said, they're a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games following a double-digit loss at home.

OUR PREDICTION: The Eagles are off to a 2-1 start but problems are brewing beneath the surface. They just lost Darren Sproles for the season and despite being able to run the ball effectively last week against the Giants, they're going to have problems maintaining an effective running game. Carson Wentz is a smart kid with a bright future and you can see how the offense is quickly starting to revolve around him, but his blocking hasn't been great to start the season and there's only so much improvising a young signal-caller can do. The Chargers have been a play or two away from being 2-1 to start the season. They're due, and I think their luck changes today taking on a team that has to fly cross-country.
