Perhaps we should have called an audible. Monday night during Week 10 of the NFL season was a bummer. If you’re like the rest of us, you went to bed following the Philadelphia Eagles‘ first loss of the season possibly feeling like you’d sleep things off and feel better on Tuesday. That didn’t work. We woke up on Tuesday feeling just as bad as we did after Monday Night Football. Nothing went right. Vegas cleaned up.

Not only did the Eagles lose (which means they didn’t cover). A.J. Brown caught one pass, Jalen Hurts threw for a mere 175 yards, and DeVonta Smith, despite catching six passes, failed to eclipse 40 yards receiving. That killed those of us that bet the OVER in those areas.

Oh well. There’s no use in crying over spilled milk. Like the Eagles, we’ll bounce back. Week 11 features a Sunday afternoon clash featuring Philly and the Indianapolis Colts. We had a good week of practice. We’re hoping we have the right game plan.

Philadelphia should bounce back. So should you. Here are three wagers that should help you get back in the winner’s circle.

Philadelphia Eagles Total Points, First Half: Over 13.5 (-110)

The disoriented Eagles offense that we saw in Week 10 should be much improved on Sunday. Shane Steichen didn’t call his best game, but in understanding that, the expectation is he’ll be better versus Indy. Perhaps he takes a page out of the Washington Commanders book, a book that the Birds helped ink in 2021.

Run the ball… Dominate time of possession… Wear the Colts’ defense out. Doing so should lead to a productive first half, one where Philly scores two touchdowns.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders Anytime Touchdown Scorer (-120)

Dominating time possession means getting the ball into the hands of your best running back, right? Once the playcalling began to involve getting the ball into Miles Sanders‘ hands in the second half of Week 10’s game, things began to settle down for the Eagles’ offense. We trust that their coaches won’t wait so long to get him involved this time around.

Philadelphia Eagles To Score First And Win (-108)

Though the loss to the Washington Commanders is being treated like the end of the world, it isn’t. Hopefully, once this season wraps and the Philadelphia Eagles have hoisted their second Vince Lombardi Trophy, we’ll all look back and remember the loss versus Washington as a moment where they reset and refocused.

We see no reason to believe the Birds are in any danger of losing to this Colts team. There will be moments of adversity. Indy has NFL players too, but the Eagles are the better team. Expect a fast start and finish with a fistfight mixed in for intrigue.

Philly scores the first points and the last. At least that’s how we see it, so we have no problem with choosing them as the first team to score and put a bow on another victory.
