PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, 65% of public bettors are backing the Eagles and laying the points.
KEY TRENDS: The Broncos are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in the last four meetings between these two teams but the home team is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings.
OUR PREDICTION: The Broncos are still playing well defensively but the defense has been victimized by Denver’s offense. Trevor Siemian might not be under center on Sunday when the Broncos travel to Philly, but the turnovers aren’t going to dry up because Brock Osweiler starts. The Eagles have proven that they can score on anyone and have a red-hot offense. The Broncos might give the Eagles a fight defensively at first, but that ball-control offense that Philly features will eventually rack up the points.
The over is a perfect 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams. The over is also 5-0 in the Broncos’ last five road games versus a team with a winning home record and is 13-3 in their last 16 games when playing on Sunday following a Monday night game. On the other side, the over is 5-2 in the Eagles’ last seven games, is 23-7 in their last 30 games versus a team with a losing record and is 7-3 in their last 10 home games versus an opponent with a losing road record.
