Week three of the NFL season is upon us and we are taking a look at an NFC East matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Commanders. Philadelphia is one of the surprise teams of the early NFL season right now with a 2-0 record. The Eagles beat Detroit in a shootout to start the season, then dominated the Vikings on Monday Night Football last week. For Washington, it’s a homecoming of sorts, as quarterback Carson Wentz faces the team that drafted him for the first time in his career. The Commanders beat the Jaguars to start the season but lost to the Detroit Lions last week.

The Eagles come into this game as road favorites by six points right now. It isn’t surprising the Eagles are favored after the way they’ve played the first two weeks, but that their 6-point favorites seem a little high. Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has played well through two games, but the Commanders should have the best defense he and the Eagles have faced so far. We will take Washington to cover the +6 point spread on Sunday.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Eagles are averaging 31 points per game

  • Washington is averaging 27.5 points per game
  • Philadelphia is averaging 477.5 yards of offense per game
  • Eagles receiver A.J. Brown has 224 yards receiving this season

Our next bet to look at for Eagles-Commanders is the Over/Under of 47.5 points. This seems like a fairly generous line for these two offenses, considering they haven’t had trouble scoring points so far this year. One key to this line will be which defense for Philadelphia shows up. Will it be last week’s defense that only gave up 7 points to the Vikings or the opening week’s defense that allowed 35 points to the Lions?

Carson Wentz has had plenty of up and down’s through the first two weeks of the season, throwing 7 touchdowns, but 3 interceptions as well. Look for the Commanders to try to get their running game going at home against Philadelphia. We think both offenses keep scoring at an impressive clip through week three, so we are taking the Over 47.5 points.
