TV: FOX, 4:25 p.m. ET
Line: Rams -1.5
ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under currently sits at 48 points after hitting the board at 51. As for the point spread, the Rams opened as 1-point home favorites but the line moved to Eagles +1.5.
PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, the Eagles are receiving 69% of the betting tickets ahead of Sunday’s game and 76% of the money.
INJURY REPORT: Tight end Zach Ertz (concussion) is probable to play for the Eagles and that’s about the only recent injury that is impacting the team. Jason Peters, Jordan Hicks and Darren Sproles are all out for the year but they have been on the shelf since October.
On the other side, Alec Ogletree is questionable with an elbow injury, as are Robert Woods (arm) and Connor Barwin (arm). Lamarcus Joyner, however, is probable with a shoulder injury.
OUR PREDICTION: The over is 14-4 in the Eagles’ last 18 road games, is 23-9 in their last 32 games played in the month of December, and has hit in 46 of their last 68 games following a loss. On the other side, the over is 8-3 in the Rams’ last 11 games played on grass.
The Eagles stubbed their toe a week ago in Seattle but should bounce back on Sunday when the take on a Rams team that has had their practice schedule changed multiple times this week due to the fires that are affecting the L.A. area. Philly is averaging 30.1 points per game, which ranks second in the NFL. They also have the No. 2 rushing attack in the league and that’s where the Rams are vulnerable. If though Philly ranks sixth in points allowed (17.9), Sean McVay’s offense has scored on nearly every opponent this season.
