The Broncos get respect from the oddsmakers in Vegas. There’s no doubt about that. For the third time in four games, Denver has been made a double-digit favorite, entering Sunday’s matchup with the Eagles as an 11-point favorite. There’s no doubt that Philadelphia will have its work cut out for them given Denver’s offense which has averaged an astounding 42.3 points per game over the season’s first three weeks. The Eagles, meanwhile, have stumbled to two puzzling losses on their home turf and have lost 13 of 15 games overall.
Another troubling trend for the Eagles? The Broncos are an impressive 7-1 against NFC East opponents in their past eight tries, while the Eagles are 1-7 against AFC West opponents in their last 8, including both of their losses this season.
Here are some other trends to consider:
The Eagles are 1-5 ATS dating back to last season.
The total has gone over in 5 of he last 6 Eagles games. Sunday’s number of 57 should be attainable given both team’s high-powered offenses.
More on that trend, Denver has hit the over in 6 of their last 7 games.
Denver, who has won 14 of their last 15 games, is also 7-2 ATS in its last 9 contests.
