The Eagles are now up to a 7-point fave over the Commanders at FedEx Field in Maryland this Sunday, says the New York Times.
Seven sounds like a lot.
The Eagles will easily win and cover. Here’s the NYT’s reasoning:
Eagles (2-0) at Washington Commanders (1-1), 1 p.m., Fox
Line: Eagles -7 | Total: 47.5
Philadelphia has taken lots of sharp money every week, and this line has moved from 1.5 on the look-ahead to 3 last Sunday to 7 as of Wednesday.
That might be too far.
The Eagles played Monday night and have to travel to Washington on a short week.
The quarterback the team shipped out after five seasons, Carson Wentz, has put up back-to-back games of 300 or more yards and three or more touchdowns in his first season in Washington and may be looking to prove something.
Pick: Commanders +7
