And, then there was one. Following the first game of the NFL’s fourth week, the Philadelphia Eagles are the lone undefeated team remaining in professional football. They hope to keep the streak alive versus an impressive and youthful Jacksonville Jaguars squad. The buzz that both teams have created within their respective fan bases can only be matched by the adrenaline that comes from winning big with a wager that works out in one’s favor.
We’ve been watching the lines and logging into FanDuel every ten minutes. Week 4’s slate is accompanied by a ton of intriguing prop bets. Here are three that we hope work out in your favor to help you and the Birds to a victorious Sunday.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts Passing and Rushing Yards: Over 298.5 (-114)
Here’s an obvious statement. If the Eagles win, they’ll need yet another supreme effort from QB1 Jalen Hurts.
Here’s how he’s performed as a passer and as a scrambler through the first three weeks: 243 yards passing and 90 yards rushing versus the Detroit Lions, 333 yards passing and 57 yards rushing versus the Minnesota Vikings, 340 yards passing and 20 yards rushing versus the Washington Commanders.
In other words, he’s exceeded 300 total yards in each of his first three starts this season. We see no reason he won’t do the same versus the Jags.
Jalen Hurts Anytime Touchdown Scorer Prop Bet (-110)
Say what you want about the Jaguars being young and inexperienced. We’ve seen them stockpile playmakers for two consecutive offseasons. We knew at some point, they’d have to become a better team. No one should be shocked by their success, especially on defense.
Jalen Hurts will need the full range of his athletic arsenal, which means he’ll need his arm and legs. Expect him to find his way into the end zone at some point during this one. Keep in mind the fact that one of his top three running backs, Boston Scott, is expected to miss this game.
Jalen Hurts Passing Yards Total Prop Bet: Over 248:5 (-114)
Much has been made of the fact that the Eagles haven’t scored in the fourth quarter all season. So far, it hasn’t affected wins and losses, but if they continue that trend versus Jacksonville, their winning streak to start the season will end at three games.
The Eagles know that. Jalen Hurts knows that. This week, we’ll see the complete game. This week, we’ll see the aggressiveness on offense for a full four quarters. Hurts will throw for 250 yards or more and deliver yet another impressive performance.
