If we use terms like ‘slobber-knocker’, you won’t mind, right? We thought of other phrases to describe the upcoming Philadelphia Eagles versus Tennessee Titans tilt, but we didn’t like any of them. ‘Slobber-knocker’ sounds appropriate. This is a hard game to place wagers on based on what we’ve seen the past few weeks from both sides. You never know what you get from these teams from one week to the next (or one drive to the next), but we know it will be entertaining.

Here’s where we stand. We haven’t changed our stance all week. We don’t think the Eagles have fixed all of their issues with stopping the run, so we expect a nice showing by Derrick Henry. Still, in the end, Philadelphia is the better team, and they’ll win a close contest but get beaten up physically.

Here are a few wagers that can put you in the winner’s circle with them.

Titans running back Derrick Henry Rushing Yards: OVER 88.5 (-114)

We may have said this earlier in the week, but it bears repeating. If you’re a Birds fan and betting the OVER on Derrick Henry‘s rushing total, we aren’t going to be angry with you. That doesn’t affect your credibility as an Eagles fan one bit. You just know a good play when you see one.

As mentioned earlier. We expect a nice showing by King Henry. We don’t like it, but it is what it is. Despite the Titans’ loss, we’re still thinking he rushes for more than 100 yards or gets in the end zone at some point. With that being said, you may want to take him as an anytime TD scorer as well.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts Alternate Passing Yards: Over 200+ (-210)

With each passing week, our respect, admiration, and confidence in Jalen Hurts continues to grow. We don’t expect him to run for more than 150 yards. We don’t see the offense topping the 300-yard-rushing threshold here, but we do believe Philly’s rushing attack will perform better than some believe it will. We also believe QB1 makes a lot of plays with his arm in this one.

Why? It’s simple actually. Look no further than the guy wearing the Number 11 jersey.

Philadelphia Eagles WR A.J. Browns Receiving Yards: Over 80.5 (-114)

Maybe the term ‘revenge game’ is overused… publicly. Everyone denies that they exist… publicly. Everyone knows it’s lip service when guys say it’s just another game when they face old colleagues and teammates.

A.J. Brown has had this game on his mind all season, and the Eagles’ coaching staff will do all that they can to ensure he has every opportunity to show his old team up. You can count on that. Take the OVER on the receiving yards total. Heck, take him as an anytime TD scorer.
