Raiders vs. Eagles Total Pick
Will Monday night's game between the Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles turn into a shootout at 8:30 p.m. ET?
Matchup: Raiders (6-8) at Eagles (12-2)
TV: ESPN, 8:30 p.m. ET
Line: Eagles -10
ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under currently sits at 46.5 points after hitting the board at 48.5. The Eagles, meanwhile, are 10-point home favorites to beat the Raiders, who opened as an 8-point road underdog.
PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, the Eagles are receiving 67% of the betting tickets to cover the spread tonight and 53% of the money is also on Philadelphia.
INJURY REPORT: Amari Cooper (ankle) and Michael Crabtree (concussion) are both probable for the Raiders but Mario Edwards Jr. is out with an ankle injury. Both Rodney Hudson (ankle) and Bruce IRvin (concussion) are questionable, while offensive tackle Donald Penn is out for the year with a foot injury.
OUR PREDICTION: The over is 5-1 in the Raiders' last six games played on Monday. Oakland doesn't have anything to play for and after getting up for last Sunday night's game against the Cowboys, I expect the Raiders to lay down tonight. Nick Foles and that Philly offense should shred an Oakland defense that is allowing 23.1 points per game this season.
On the other side, the over has cashed in 20 of the Eagles' last 27 games played in December, is 10-4-1 in their last 15 Monday games, and is 25-8 in their last 33 games versus an opponent with a losing record. The over is also 35-16 in their last 51 games coming off an ATS loss.
