Boop on Eagles vs. Seahawks Wild Card Prop Bets - Carson Wentz, Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, Doug Pederson, Marshawn Lynch

Thanks to Boston Scott and his three touchdowns in a span of a little over 11 minutes last Sunday, the Eagles are playing with House Money. No one expected them to bounce back from 5-7 and win the NFC East, yet here they are hosting a wild-card playoff game.

Thanks to Scott, we are also playing with House Money. Specifically, $250 worth of the House’s cash for a $1 Prop Bet we had on Scott scoring thrice. (We also won money when he scored his first and second TDs, but that was chump change compared to the payout on the Triple.)

So we head into the postseason with a fist-full of dollars . . .

● ● ●

>>> Russell Wilson joins a handful of quarterbacks with career 4-0 records against the Eagles (Ken Anderson, Johnny Unitas, Roman Gabriel, Kyle Rote, Jim McMahon, since you asked).

No QB is currently 5-0 or better in his career against them. And none will be Monday morning.

DraftKings had the best Money Line that we could find.

Eagles To Win (+106) . . . $10 / $10.60

● ● ●

>>> The last six Eagles home games (including the Nov. 24 contest with the Seahawks) have all come in Under, and each by at least five points. For the record, the Birds never have had seven consecutive home games go Under in the 42 years for which we have data. No rain, but there should be wind early that dies down as the sun sets.

We are leaning to a Alternate Under at FanDuel, with the idea that if this does get into a Shootout, we have lots to TD Props (see below) that could cash as the scoreboard heats up.

Total Under 42.5 (+130) . . . $5 / $6.50

● ● ●

The Eagles respond for Doug Pederson coming out of the locker room at Lincoln Financial Field, especially after halftime. In 26 games at the Linc with D.P. on the sidelines, the Birds are outscoring opponents 148-44 in the third quarter. Therefore, we are going with the Eagles to win that period in the three-way option (draw) at FoxBet.

Eagles To Win Third Quarter (+145) . . . $5 / $7.25

● ● ●

>>> The Over/Under on Carson Wentz’ passing attempts at FanDuel is 35.5. He has had at least 39 in each of his last eight games. And we know even with a lead, Pederson is not opposed to throwing the pigskin. Unless Wentz gets hurt, this is as slam-dunky as it gets.

Wentz Over 35.5 Attempts (-112) . . . $5 / $4.46

● ● ●

>>> We know the Seahawks have Eagles-like injury problems at the running back position, but Marshawn Lynch is still 33 years old and has just one game under his belt (12 carries, 34 yards) since he returned from retirement. He won’t get to his age in rushing yards, let alone the 36.5 FanDuel has posted.

Lynch Under 36.5 Rushing Yards (-112) . . . $5 / $4.46

● ● ●

>>> As we mentioned above, we cashed in a big ticket with Boston Scott’s hat trick last week, so we have some cash to play with. Let’s go for paydirt again. DraftKing has some big odds (higher than 100-1) on a couple of Eagles to go Triple, so let’s start with them and wheel a couple.

WR J.J. Arcega Whiteside --

1+ TDs (+650 DK) . . . . . $3 / $19.50

2+ TDs (+7000 DK). . . . $2 / $140

3+ TDs (+50000 DK) . . . $1 / $500

TE Josh Perkins --

1+ TDs (+600 FD) . . . . . . $3 / $18

2+ TDs (+8000 FD) . . . . $2 / $160

3+ TDs (+25000 DK) . . . $1 / $250

WR Greg Ward --

3+ TDs (+12500 DK) . . . $1 / $125

● ● ●

>>> Fresh-off-the-sideline wide receivers Deontay Burnett (2 catches) and Robert Davis (2 targets and one 39-yard catch nullified by a penalty) got some action last week, so Carson Wentz at least knows who they are without a program . . . As does William Hill, who had some nice odds for the pair. We will tone these 1+ and 2+ TD bets down to a single George Washington.

WR Deontay Burnett --

1+ TDs (+900 WH) . . . . $1 / $9

2+ TDs (+5000 WH) . . . $1 / $50

3+ TDs (+10000 FD) . . . $1 / $100

WR Robert Davis --

1+ TDs (+900 WH) . . . . $1 / $9

2+ TDs (+5000 WH) . . . $1 / $50

3+ TDs (+10000 FD) . . . $1 / $100

● ● ●

>>> We are going to skip an appetizer at the bar and instead lay that money down on scoring by some more newcomers, including the son of an all-time heavyweight champion.

Remember, it’s a no-bet for anybody that doesn’t play a snap.

WR Shelton Gibson --

1+ TDs (+2200 DK) . . . $1 / $22

WR Elijah Holifield --

1+ TDs (+2200 DK) . . . . $1 / $22

2+ TDs (+10000 FD) . . . $1 / $100

TE Richard Rodgers --

1+ TDs (+2000 WH) . . . $1 / $20

2+ TDs (+6600 WH) . . . $1 / $66

● ● ●

>>> Carson Wentz has done a lot of good things for the Eagles this season. Scoring his own touchdowns is not one of them. He went in from one-yard out to give the Birds an ill-fated lead late in the second game of the season against the Falcons, but nothing since then.

We certainly want to be on him when he does return to the end zone and since FanDuel has such high odds on him going in twice, we’ll take that also.

QB Carson Wentz –

1+ TDs (+850 DK) . . . $3 / $25.50

2+ TDs (+9500 FD) . . . $1 / $95

● ● ●

>>> We’ve got so much money on the newer guys and the QB, we ought not to forget some of the mainstays in case they decide to match Scott’s performance, which, by the way, has pushed his odds way, way down so far that we will pass on him completely this week.

3+ TDs Scored By –

RB Jordan Howard (+10000 FD) . . . $1 / $100

RB Miles Sanders (+7000 FD). . . . . . $1 / $70

TE Dallas Goedert (+6000 FD) . . . . . $1 / $60
