Point Spread: SF +12.5/PHI -12.5
Over/Under Total:47.5

The San Francisco 49ers will travel to the East Coast to square off with the Philadelphia Eagles in a NFC conference clash between the East and West. The two teams enter in this affair on contrasting notions. The 49ers were obliterated at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys at home last weekend when they were routed 40-10 in Santa Clara. The Eagles enter in off a double-digit victory against the Washington Redskins on Monday night. Between both parties, the Niners have won the last two encounters but the last time the two engaged in combat was three years ago. The game is set for kick off at 1:00 PM ET and will be aired for regional audiences on FOX.

The 49ers are nothing short of a dumpster fire. The Gold Rush have been pewter in 2017 as they have yet to win their first game this season. This team is clearly defined as one that is in transition and re-building mode. With this being considered, the 49ers share a level of inferiority that coincides with the Cleveland Browns as the Dawg Pound also remain winless on the year. Despite their inability to win, the 49ers have been profitable against the spread. Most of this of course can be chalked up to enhanced figures being spotted to the Niners and their takers to entice action. Be that the 49ers looked exceptionally poor last week against the Cowboys, that number is bound to be that much more inflated be that no one else would want a part of them otherwise.

The Eagles are one of the most talked about teams in the NFL. Anchored by the breakout play of a rising star in quarterback Carson Wentz, the Birds seem poised to swoop in and steal the NFC East this year. The Eagles have the best record in the NFC at the moment. Nevertheless, with all the publicity that the City of Brother Love’s beloved Eagles generates and the success they have had in the early going, this team is vulnerable to procure a huge let down.


Winning big on Monday night is bound to create a reaction in the follow-up the week thereafter. We saw this with Indianapolis and Tennessee as the Titans were a popular choice and the Colts were a consensus fade in Week 7. The team that wins the Monday night game in particular, is a team that could be targeted the week after by virtue of national audiences all bearing witness to their moment of triumph. Such notions create fanfare and make the recipient of such revelry a quality target. After defeating the Colts handily, the Titans struggled to get by the winless Browns in the follow-up contest. In fact, overtime was required. A similar narrative can unfold here with the Eagles. Though the Eagles are spotting a huge number from the get-go, the public has smothered them and swallowed the points. Heavy steam has caused this market to continue to rise and offer more points to San Francisco.

The fact remains that there is more equity in taking points than spotting them when the number is substantial. As a whole, covering a double-digit line is a difficult errand be that the NFL is still the highest level of professional football. Wins and losses are a dime a dozen and thus it is quite audacious for a team to spot such lumber. Generally, from previous anecdotes it has not fared well for the giver. The perfect case and point of this was when Houston nearly upset New England on the road as a two-touchdown dog. By no means are we suggesting that San Francisco is going to pull off an upset, but stranger things have happened.

There is also one other narrative that we urge Philadelphia takers to beware of, a thing called a backdoor cover. The Eagles can hold a three-possession lead late into the third quarter and then call off the dogs in the fourth. Though Philadelphia can dominate this game, the 49ers can still foster a cover through a junk-time touchdown or two. The backdoor cover is a phenomenon that has resulted in many ripped tickets and broken hearts. Therefore, we suggest taking the points here.
