The Eagles dropped 32 points on the Falcons last Sunday and the Niners 41 on the Lions.
So, when Philly hosts SF on Sunday at the Linc, it seems like the OVER of 50 is in jeopardy.
Even if you don’t like Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback, the Niners have a supporting cast that puts up big numbers in the right situations.
Receiver Brandon Aiyuk, the 49ers’ 2020 first-round pick, didn’t even play in Week 1 due to a reported disciplinary issue. Getting him back would be a huge boost for an already potent attack.
Many questioned whether Jalen Hurts and the Eagles offense would be productive at all this season.
And in Week 1 Hurts was dynamic, going 27 of 35 for 264 yards and three TDs. He added another 62 yards on the ground. Hurts’ playmaking and escapability keeps drives alive for Philly and should put the team in many more positions to score.
Betting the OVER of 50 is the way to go.
