The final game of the NFL’s Week 10 schedule is a Monday Night Football NFC East battle between the 4-win Washington Commanders and the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles, a chance for one of these teams to stack a critical divisional win with the underdog Commanders still adjusting to QB Taylor Heinicke and the Eagles loving their dual threat QB Jalen Hurts.
The Eagles have covered in each of their last four games at Lincoln Financial Field because they are strong on both sides of the ball with a top-4 offense led by mobile top-10 QB Hurts who can hurt defenses on the ground or through the air throwing to deep threat WR A.J. Brown already with 718 receiving yards and 6 TDs, the team also with a top-3 defense led by veteran DT Fletcher Cox and CB Darius Slay.
Commanders QB Heinicke is 2-1 as the starter under center, his job ever since Cason Wentz (finger) went on IR, this 21st ranked offense is dependent on the production of certain playmakers like deep threat WR Terry Mclaurin (2 TDs) and slot man Curtis Samuel (3 TDs) as well as TE Logan Thomas (13 rec, 106 yds, TD) who has proven to be an effective check down the receiver.
Six of Washington’s last seven games have gone under the total points line, and it is not likely they will get on a scoring frenzy against the NFL’s third-best defense, and this bet has the oddsmakers predicting these two teams will combine for 44 points at the end of the game, so this points total bet has you guessing whether the actual total will be over or under that.
The Commanders have the seventh most sacks in the league (23) and Eagles mobile QB Hurts has been sacked 22 times this season so as fast as he is catchable, so watch for Washington DEs Montez Sweat and James Smith-Williams to get after him, that is if the secondary featuring star CB Kendell Fuller can give them enough time to effectively rush.
The Eagles average 28.1 points per game but the Commanders’ offense only puts 17.7 points on the scoreboard each time, that total of 45.8 just over what the oddsmakers are predicting, and also keep in mind Philly’s defense only allows opponents to score 16.9 points per game and Washington’s defense allows 21.3 points per game, just 38.2 points total, well under this bet.
The Eagles have struggled a bit against the run, ranked 20th in the league in that department after allowing the teams they play to average 121.4 yards on the ground per game, so expect to see a lot of Washington Commanders' rookie RB Brian Robinson who is averaging 13 carries per game already with 71 total touches sharing snaps with third-year RB Antonio Gibson.
The Philly Eagles have won each of their last 12 games as favorites, a record that bleeds over from last season, this 8-win team is perfect against all enemies this year, so it might make sense for their biggest fans to make a $500 money line bet that pays out $100 plus that wager, compared with a $100 Commanders money line bet that would pay winners $400 plus the original investment.
The last thing every sports bettor should check before placing their wager are the injury reports of both teams since key playmakers might be out for the week – five Commanders are listed as questionable in Week 10 including WR Jahan Dotson (hamstring) and on the Eagles’ side, two players will be game-time coach’s decisions including backup DBs Josh Jobe (thigh) and Josiah Scott (ankle).
