Another Eagles player prop worth taking advantage of in Week 6

Bet No. 2

  • Kenneth Gainwell Total Rushing Yards (over 13.5) -125

Okay, we get it. You just read all of that stuff about Philly abandoning the run, and you’re wondering, after digesting that, why you would give any thought to taking the over on any wager that involves the Eagles and running the football.

That absolutely makes sense, and you’re right for whatever concern that you may be harboring. Still, even though it feels like Philadelphia’s coaching staff has no desire to run the football, two truths have come to the surface.

This young coaching staff might trust Kenneth Gainwell more than they trust Miles Sanders, and 14 rushing yards from Kenneth Gainwell isn’t much to ask for.

After carrying the ball 15 times over the course of the first two weeks (and after he got one carry in Week 3 versus the Cowboys), one can feel good about the rookie’s chances of helping you cover this one. He gained 31 carries on three totes in Week 4 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. He racked up another 16 yards on two carries in Week 5.

Arguments against drafting another QB in Round 1. light. Trending

Sure, it’s hard to understand why the Eagles’ coaches are allergic to ball control, but before they abandon the run completely versus Tampa, we’re trusting they’ll stick with the run enough to give Gainwell four to five carries in this one.
