Eagles vs. Steelers (Sunday, 1 PM)
Odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook.
Not only have the Eagles been one of the best teams in the NFL this season, they’ve also been great against the spread, posting a 4-2 record ATS through six games.
Despite notching an impressive victory over Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers two weeks ago, Pittsburgh has been one of the worst teams in the league this season. The 10.5-point spread reflects that. Through seven weeks, the Steelers have posted a 3-3-1 record against the spread.
10.5 points is a hefty spread to cover, but given the Eagles track record, they’ll more than likely hit the spread once again this week.
Eagles Anytime TD Scorer
- Jalen Hurts -115
- Miles Sanders +100
- AJ Brown +110
- DeVonta Smith +115
- Dallas Goedert +215
- Eagles D/ST +475
For obvious reason, I love Jalen Hurts and Miles Sanders as anytime touchdown scorers. Although Pittsburgh has only surrendered four rushing touchdowns on the season, the Eagles lead the league in rushing touchdowns with 13. Hurts has accounted for six of them, while Sanders has tallied four.
If you’re feeling a bit frisky, toss some cash on the Eagles defense to score a touchdown. They haven’t scored a defensive touchdown since Week 1, but they’ll be facing a rookie quarterback in Kenny Pickett who’s thrown a whopping seven interceptions through three starts. Don’t be surprised if Jonathan Gannon’s crew finds the end zone again this week.
Eagles Player Props
- Jalen Hurts passing yards: OVER 229.5 (-115)
- Jalen Hurts passing touchdowns: OVER 1.5 (+105)
- Miles Sanders rushing yards: OVER 69.5 (-110)
- DeVonta Smith receptions: OVER 4.5 (+110)
- Dallas Goedert receptions: UNDER 4.5 (-145)
Pittsburgh’s defense is typically one of the best units in the league. That hasn’t been the case this year.
They rank 29th in passing yards allowed per game (275.4) and 17th in rushing yards allowed per game (118.9). Expect a handful of Eagles players to hit their overs this week.
The one player I’d be cautious about taking the over in receptions with is TE Dallas Goedert. He’s been great this year, but one of Pittsburgh’s defensive strengths has been slowing down tight ends. Their safety duo of Minkah Fitzpatrick and Terrell Edmunds have been stout in coverage all season. They’ll likely get the Goedert assignment this week.
