Best Bets: Eagles vs Browns
This afternoon the Eagles head on the road to take on the 6-3 Cleveland Browns. Amazingly the Eagles are only +3 which means that the general pubic still thinks this is a good football team. Apparently they must have been asleep for the past 11 weeks as Carson and Co. have played some of the most uninspiring football this city has ever witnessed.

That’s where we are today my friends. Today I am a broken man. Some would say insane. But here I find myself; Going back to the well once again..
That being said, this is a classic hungry dog scenario. The Eagles need this game more and they will outplay an overrated Browns team.
My prediction and best bets are below.
Eagles 26-Browns 24
Why? Insanity. That’s why!
Miles Sanders over 65.5 Rushing yards
The Birds need to establish the run early and get the ball in their best offensive players hands. Doug had had a much more even run to pass ratio in the past few weeks. Miles should get plenty of carries.
Travis Fulgham over 50.5 Receiving yards
Simply because he is the best receiver on this team and Carson has to throw the ball to somebody. Fulgham again and again outperforms expectations.
Baker Mayfield over 0.5 Interceptions (-130)
Daniel Jones had a few passes that were up for grabs last week and the Eagles secondary could not make him pay. I think Baker Mayfield is even worse than Daniel Dimes. With the Eagles clogging up the usually successful Browns rushing attack, Baker will be forcing balls into tight windows. The Eagles need a turnover to win this game.
