Vikings VS Eagles Best Bets
Moneyline/Point Spread Pick: Philadelphia Eagles (ML/-7)
While things got close down the stretch of their Week 1 meeting with the Patriots, the Eagles demonstrated the toughness that is only possessed by teams with a championship mentality. Set to play their first game in front of their diehard fanbase, look for the Eagles to easily route the Vikings in this featured matchup.
After the Vikes struggled to produce against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers squad that underwent a sizeable makeover to their roster this offseason, the alarm bells are certainly ringing in Minnesota. With their lacklustre play seemingly not a one-off occurrence, watch as the Eagles dominate the football game as they score-at-will against the weak defence of the Vikings.
The Vikings defence has lost several key pieces that had held them together in recent seasons, now facing a Eagles squad that averaged the second-most points per game in the league in 2022, look for the Eagles to light up the scoreboard in a hurry this evening.
Things are sure to be sour for the Vikings on the other side of the football as well, as their turnover prone offence must now go toe-to-toe against one of the strongest defensive units in the NFL.
Bank on the Eagles to score the lopsided victory, commanding the scoreboard as they control the pace of the game, covering the seven-point spread, and securing you a winning wager to kickoff Week 2.
Over/Under Pick: Under 49 Points
As the Eagles are set to command the lead early and never look back in tonight’s contest, look for them to do the bulk of the scoring, resulting in Under 49 total points scored on Thursday Night Football.
The Eagles offence excels at getting out to fast starts, having scored 16-points in the first quarter in their season opener. Once they gain the lead, look for Head Coach Nick Siriranni to manage the clock well, using their tremendous run-game to drain the clock while eating up yards downfield.
This will then force the Vikings to send deep shots downfield to make up ground, playing right into the hands of an Eagles defence that intercepted three passes against Kirk Cousins and co. in their 24-7 win last season.
Look for a one-sided score as the Eagles take control of the game and never look back, keeping the output of the Vikings to a minimum, resulting in Under 49 points scored in tonight’s primetime affair.
Vikings VS Eagles Player Prop Bets
Alexander Mattison Under 50.5 Rushing Yards (-110)
Off to a porous start to his time as RB1 for the Vikings, look for another rough day at the office for Alexander Mattison as he records Under 50.5 rushing yards against the Eagles.
Facing a scary front-seven, Mattison is going to have ample trouble moving the ball on the ground against the Eagles. With the Eagles having held the run-oriented Patriots to just 76 total rushing yards in Week 1, expect Mattison to struggle mightily as he attempts to break through the line of scrimmage on Thursday Night Football.
Fade the production of Mattison this evening as he is unable to pick up yardage against a strong Eagles D, resulting in him finishing with Under 50.5 yards on the ground, and scoring you a winning player prop bet as a result.
A.J. Brown Over 72.5 Receiving Yards (-125)
After hauling in an impressive 79 receiving yards on 7 receptions, look for pro-bowl wide receiver A.J. Brown to once again eclipse 72.5 yards receiving against the Vikings.
Facing a subpar secondary, Brown is set to feast against the inferior defensive backs awaiting him. With tremendous size and athleticism, virtually any ball that quarterback Jalen Hurts throws up to Brown will be catchable for the star receiver.
After being targeted 10 times in Week 1, look for the Eagles to continue feeding the rock to Brown on Thursday Night Football, looking for their standout wide receiver whenever they need a big play, resulting in another big outing for the 26-year-old wideout.
Bet the Over on Browns receiving yards and watch as your bankroll grows as his receiving total continues to rise throughout the game.
