Fear not friends. We know what you’re thinking. Though it’s hard to avoid looking ahead to that game on Christmas Eve, the Philadelphia Eagles‘ opponent in Week 15 isn’t the Dallas Cowboys (or as Jordan Mailata put it, the Chicago Micah Parsons). Nope… The Birds travel to the Windy City to meet the Chicago Bears, and Philly would be wise to avoid overlooking them.
Now, here’s the good news. It’s doubtful that Philly has done so. This might be the most laser-focused unit we’ve seen in some time. They have adopted the one-game-at-a-time approach that we hear constantly from QB1 Jalen Hurts and Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni, so if you’re worried about a letdown or, for lack of a better term. a ‘trap game’, don’t be. The Birds will come into this one as sharp as they always are.
We expect Philly’s best effort. We expect an Eagles win, and we expect that there are a few wagers that can put you in the winner’s circle with them if you’re looking for attractive wagers.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts Anytime TD Scorer/Moneyline Parlay (+650)
QB1 is on fire. How about eight passing touchdowns, three rushing TDs, and zero interceptions in the last four games? All week, we’ve been thinking about Donovan McNabb’s homecoming game versus the Bears in a Divisional Round Playoff Game back in January of 2002. Oh yeah… You remember the one.
The stakes aren’t as high here. The players are different, but for whatever reason, we’ve been daydreaming about a similar showing by Jalen Hurts in this one.
Expect QB1 to show and prove with his arm and legs and reach the end zone as an anytime TD scorer in this one.
Philadelphia Eagles WR A.J. Brown Anytime TD scorer (-115)
The Jalen Hurts to A.J. Brown connection seems to be running smoothly, and if we’re being honest, we have yet to imagine a scenario in which Chicago slows it down or keeps Jalen and A.J. from connecting for six points at some point in this one.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders Anytime TD scorer (-120)
The Eagles’ running game has been on fire. As the weeks pass, it appears that the only thing that can stop them is their occasional decision to ignore their rushing attack when calling plays.
Shane Steichen seems to have learned his lesson from that standpoint, and Miles Sanders has been featured more often. That includes last week when he ran his way to 144 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries.
After seeing Number 26 offer that type of production, it would be wise to ride the hot hand, and we believe Philly will. Expect a nice showing and a touchdown run by Miles at some point in this one.
