The winds will be whipping around Lincoln Financial Field Sunday, but Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson won’t be. Carson Wentz may need to take all snaps under center and that center should probably be far to the left of the offensive line, since that is where Wentz will be escaping to all day.
The Birds’ offense right now is about as stable as the Christmas Tree we just put up with four dogs playing high five with the lower branches.
No telling how the Eagles will generate points, so we will have to focus most of our money on the improving defense this week, especially with linebacker Nigel Bradham getting back from an ankle injury. And maybe go for fewer, higher-cash bets until the offense gets back on its feet.

>>> First off, the slam dunk.
No one is going to be trying long field goals, let alone making them. The O/U is down to 45.5 (DraftKings), and since we need at least one made FG to collect, it very well may be a no-bet. So, let’s go big just in case.
Longest Field Goal Under 45.5 . . . $11.50 / $10.00
(Void if none made)

>>> The Eagles have held their last three opponents to 17 points or fewer. Seattle has been putting up points (27, 40, 27, last three games), but most of that has been through the air (8 passing TDs). The weather will be miserable; let’s take advantage of it.
Seahawks Under 23.5 Points . . . $5.30 / $5.00
● ● ●
>>> We can easily see stretches where nobody moves the ball well and the teams settle into a wet game of Punt, Punt, Goose. A scoreless quarter (+280 Points Bets) seems like a safe bet.
There will be a Scoreless Quarter . . . $5.00 / $14.00

>>> Carson Wentz has thrown a touchdown in 13 consecutive games and in 20 consecutive home games. Despite the weather, he is going to find someone in the end zone a time or two. Let it be Dallas Goedert. And if DraftKings wants to lay 125-1 on him having a hat trick, we have a George Washington just burning a hole in our pocket.
Dallas Goedert To Score –
Any TD (+225 DK) . . . $5.00 / $16.25
2 TDs (+1700 FD) . . . $3.00 / $51.00
3 TDs (+12500 DK). . . $1.00 / $125.00

>>> And just to get our abbreviated Props Lay up to an even $40, we’ll go with a couple of longer-shot FoxBet lines for other Eagles scoring TDs.
To Score Any TD –
Carson Wentz (+800) . . . . . . . . $3.20 / $25.60
JJ Arcega-Whiteside (+900). . $3.00 / $27.00
