Boop on Week 17 Eagles vs. Giants Prop Bets - Miles Sanders, Carson Wentz, Dallas Goedert, Daniel Jones, Jordan Howard

Doug Pederson got it started three weeks ago with a surprise full-pads practice . . .

Carson Wentz continued it just after that with his first of two much-needed, late-game comebacks . . .

And the defense got on the board last week (with the help of some Cowboys dropsies) with stellar play in the defacto NFC East Title Game.

They have this. Period. End of story.

Maybe – if the crowd wasn’t going to be at least 50/50 . . . or Daniel Jones had some dry weather to throw four or five TDs again . . . or if Saquon Barkley was not going to be the second-best former Penn State running back on the field – they could get upended. But not today, not in my book.

The money line is -200 (a little higher in some places). Consider it your last Holiday Gift of 2019.

Eagles To Win (-200) . . . $20 / $10

● ● ●

>>> If the weather were to be nicer, we could see ourselves going for some Alternate Total Overs, but we won’t chance that here. What we could see happening is the Eagles bursting out to an early lead and the Giants just wanting to get out of there with their tail between their legs before the ball drops on Times Square Tuesday night.

If the Eagles can beat the Cowboys by 17-9, they should be able to beat the Giants by 21-10 or something like that, especially if they score first and never let New York see the light of day.

Eagles -10.5 (+215 DK) . . . . . $5 / $10.75

Eagles Never Trail (+235 PB) . $5 / $10.75

● ● ●

>>> Over his last 15 games against NFC East opponents, Carson Wentz has 32 touchdowns and five interceptions. He hasn’t thrown a pick in three games and is riding an 18-game streak with a TD Pass, longest current run in the NFL and second longest in team history. Most of his aerial damage will be done in the first half before the rains really kick in, so pay attention early.

Carson Wentz –

Interceptions Under 0.5 (-112 FD) . . . .. $3 / $2.68

Touchdown Passes Over 1.5 (-150 FD) . . $6 / $4.00

● ● ●

>>> With the return of Jordan Howard, we are not real sure how the Eagles’ are going to distribute what should be many, many rushing attempts, so we are just going to go with the slam dunk on Miles Sanders Over 88.5 Rushing plus Receiving Yards, which FanDuel has at -108. The fact is, he could just run or just catch for either of those numbers. And he has totaled 83+ scrimmage yards in four of the last five games.

Sanders Over 88.5 R&R Yards (-108) . . . $6 / $5.56

● ● ●

>>> As we mentioned, the weather is going to get progressively more rainy during the game. So we have three bets to go with that thinking:

First as Highest Scoring Q (+650 FB) . . . . $3 / $19.50

There Will Be A Scoreless Q (+255 PB) . . $3 / $7.65

Fourth Q Total Under 12 (-112 FD) . . . . . . $4 / $3.57

● ● ●

>>> It is no secret that Miles Sanders and Dallas Goedert will be at the top of the Eagles’ offensive food chain this week. There is not much value in Sanders scoring a TD (+110 is the best we saw), but we did shop around and got some respectable numbers for Goedert.

Dallas Goedert To Score (all FD) –

1+ TD (+125) . . . $3 / $3.75

2+ TDs (+800). . . $2 / $16.00

3+ TDs (+4800) . . $1 / $48.00

● ● ●

>>> DraftKings decided to post 250-1 odds on three TDs being scored by either WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside or RB Boston Scott. So, we quickly grabbed those and found the best odds to also wheel one- and two-TD bets for them.

Arcega-Whiteside To Score --

1+ TD (+350 DK) . . . . $1 / $3.50

2+ TDs (+3300 DK) . . $1 / $33.00

3+ TDs (+25000 DK). . $1 / $250.00

Scott To Score --

1+ TD (+350 FD) . . . . $1 / $3.50

2+ TDs (+3500 FD) . . $1 / $35.00

3+ TDs (+25000 DK). . $1 / $250.00

● ● ●

>>> RB Jordan Howard is back and he does lead the Eagles in touchdowns with seven despite missing six games. By the way, his 3+ TD odds (+3300) weren’t much better than his 2+ TD odds (+2100), so we skipped the 3+ bet and saved a $1.

Howard To Score --

1+ TD (+360 FD) . . . $3 / $10.80

2+ TDs (+2100 FD) . . $1 / $21.00

● ● ●

>>> There are some nice prices to be had on WRs Robert Davis (29 snaps, 1 catch vs. Dallas) and recently-signed Deontay Burnett (10 catches, 3 of 20+ yards, no TDs, with Jets last season).

Davis To Score –

1+ TD (+900 WH) . . . $1 / $9.00

Burnett To Score --

1+ TD (+2200 DK) . . . $1 / $22.00

2+ TDs (+10000 FD) . . $1 / $100.00

● ● ●

>>> We know Carson Wentz has only three career TDs (and just one of those over the last three seasons), but if FanDuel is going to lay 90-1 on him scoring a pair, we have a George Washington with its name on it to push our total TD outlay up to a nice, round $20, and our total output for the day to $75.

Wentz To Score –

2+ TDs (+9000 FD) . . $1 / $90.00
