The Eagles are 3-1-1 against the spread this season. Can they cover as road favorites in Week 6?

The Philadelphia Eagles are looking to remain perfect and keep pace in the NFC standings when they take on the New York Jets in Week 6 of the 2023 season. 

New York is coming off a huge win over the Denver Broncos in Denver, and it has actually thrived at home this season – going 2-1 against the spread as a home underdog. 

The Eagles and Jalen Hurts are favored by seven points in  this game, and rightfully so considering how well they’ve played this season. The team slowed a lethal Los Angeles Rams passing attack in Week 5 to move to 5-0. 

How should we bet on this Week 6 showdown?

Eagles vs. Jets key players to watch 

Philadelphia Eagles

AJ Brown: Could we get AJ Brown vs. Sauce Gardner on every play this week? Maybe. Brown has been elite the last few weeks, picking up 131, 175 and 127 receiving yards in his last three games, scoring twice in the process. The Jets have a great secondary, but can they stop Brown? 

New York Jets

Quincy Williams: Williams has been a beast this season, recording 48 tackles and five games and picking up a pair of sacks in the team’s win over the Denver Broncos last week. He could make things tough on the Eagles offense. 

Breece Hall: Hall’s first game without a carry/snap limit went extremely well, as he broke off a 72-yard touchdown run and finished with 177 yards in 22 carries against Denver. He should continue to operate as New York’s No. 1 back. 

Eagles vs. Jets prediction and pick

All season long, I’ve felt like the Eagles haven’t reached their best form, yet they are 5-0 on the season and 3-1-1 against the spread. 

I think they can cover a touchdown in this game, even though Zach Wilson has looked better for the Jets the past few weeks. 

Philly comes into this game ranking ninth in yards per play on offense and 10th in yards per play allowed on defense. The Jets? They are 18th and 13th in those respective categories. 

New York slowed the Denver offense in the second half last week, but the Eagles are a much more lethal attack that can run the ball at a high level. 

I question whether or not the Jets can slow down this Eagles running game since the team is allowing the eighth most yards per carry in the NFL this season. No team has run the ball more than Philly, who is averaging 4.6 yards per carry. 

I like the Eagles to move to 6-0 on the season with a win and cover.
