Best Prop Bets for Eagles vs. Rams

D'Andre Swift OVER 65.5 rushing yards (-112)

If there's one area that the Eagles can really attack the Rams on Sunday, it's on the ground. The Rams have struggled to stop the run all season, ranking 24th in the NFL in opponent yards per play, allowing teams to gain 4.4 yards per rush.

D'Andre Swift has been fantastic this season for the Eagles, averaging 6.2 yards per carry and surpassing 65.5 yards in two of the last three games.

Jalen Hurts OVER 39.5 rushing yards (-129)

We're going to take the OVER on Jalen Hurts' rushing yards for the same reason we're going to back it for Swift. The Rams struggle to stop the run. They can't keep both Swift and Hurts in check and maybe they don't stop either from going over their set rushing yards total.

Hurts is averaging 33.5 rushing yards per game, so he's going to be in danger of going over this total at some point on Sunday.

DeVonta Smith OVER 62.5 receiving yards (-114)

If you want to bet on a receiver to have a big game on Sunday, go with DeVonta Smith, who has been having a quietly strong 2023 campaign. He has surpassed 62.5 receiving yards in two of his four starts, including a 131 yard performance against the Vikings.

With Smith being such a deep threat, he may only need a few receptions to go over this total on Sunday.
