Two divisional first-place teams collide during the NFL’s Week 13 as the 7-4 Tennessee Titans of the AFC South take on the 10-1 Philadelphia Eagles of the NFC East, each of these a run-first team with different styles of rushing, the Titans using their giant RB Derrick Henry to power his way for TDs while the Eagles have mobile QB Jalen Hurts who evades tackles and burns secondaries.
Tennessee will be traveling, and they are 4-2 on the road, in fact, they have also won each of their last four games as underdogs against NFC opponents, so with all those points the oddsmakers are throwing their way, we like them to cover against the Eagles, though chances are with how solid Philly is on both sides of the ball, they should win this matchup outright.
A fun matchup to watch for is Eagles WR A.J. Brown who will be going up against the Titans team that drafted him in 2019, facing a pass defense ranked 31st in the NFL after allowing over 276 air yards per game starring rookie CB Roger McCreary and CB Kristian Fulton with FS Kevin Byard roaming the field, a chance for Brown (53 rec, 831 yds, 7 TDs) to add to his already solid stats.
The Eagles love to score touchdowns in front of their hometown crowd, and ten of their last 11 games at Lincoln Financial Field have gone over the total points line, plus the last five times these two teams have met they have posted them over every time, our choice for the bet that will cost you a little more (-112) than the under (-109) but one that makes better sense when you research the scoring tendencies.
When a team wins ten out of eleven of its matchups the way the Eagles have, they typically do it with a high-scoring offense and Philadelphia has averaged the third most points per game, 27.5, whereas the Tennessee Titans are 26th best in that category having scored 19 points per game this season, that total of 46.5 over what the oddsmakers are predicting, another good sign for the over.
Philadelphia’s defense is the second best in the league, and they let the ninth fewest points get scored on them per game, 19.6, and one notch better in the eighth best spot are the Titans whose defense allows 18.6 points per game, that 38.2 total well under this bet and a solid argument for going that way if you believe this game will be more of a defensive battle.
Two first-place teams going head to head like in this matchup between the Titans and the Eagles creates the perfect setup for a money line bet where the oddsmakers offer certain levels of payout depending on whether you bet on the underdog or the favorite, which in this game is the Philadelphia Eagles who are 6-0 straight up in their last six matchups with AFC opponents.
Here is how this money line bet breaks down – for Titans fans your team is the dog so a winning $100 money line bet would pay you $172 plus your original investment, while bettors who prefer the favored Eagles would have to place a $205 money line wager on them to win and if that happens it pays out $100 plus that initial bet, a fun way to put some skin in the game for true believers.
The Titans have been banged up all season, right now with 15 players on the IR and three questionable to play on Sunday including PK Randy Bullock (calf) which could be a serious factor in a close game, while the Eagles have eight players out and the only one questionable to play is LB Patrick Johnson (ankle) who will be a game-time decision for HC Nick Sirianni and his staff.
