BoopProps Monday - Eagles vs. Seahawks: Ignoring the Wentz and Hurts fanfare and sticking on the ground
It’s hard to figure out where to place your Eagles Prop Bet money when there are questions about exactly how much time your Franchise Quarterback is going to get. (We think we know it will be the usual, but if the wheels come off the Eagles’ bus early, we could see a change just for the sake of it, so we will steer clear of signal-callers Carson Wentz and Jalen Hurts here.)
So we shift the focus to running back Miles Sanders, whose knee injury caused him to miss the last two contests at Lincoln Financial Field. That is a shame, since in his first three games there this season he rushed for 95, 95 and 118 yards (that last one on just nine carries).
A day-long rain will just be ending around kickoff, so we could see some early-game run-establishing by Doug Pederson (insert LOL here) and a slipped tackle or two by the Seattle defense.
As always, PointsBet gives us the most variety on rushing totals. And we found a huge +185 for Sanders to score Any TD where everywhere else we looked had him at a measly +110. That being the case, we doubled down ($20 instead of $10) on that.
As far as the total, we are leaning to the Under because . . .
A) There is the weather;
B) Eagles games have gone Under four in a row and six of last eight; and
C) The Seahawks (traveling cross-country) have been in Under games two in a row themselves after a 6-2 O/U start.
The main O/U was 48.5 (with the usual vig) everywhere we looked, but we found it at +100 as an Alternative Total on FanDuel, so we don’t have to lay the juice. Otherwise, we would have taken the best U47.5 we could find.
We will also grab the best First Half Under that is out there.
