POINTS TO PONDER
After a cataclysmically poor Week One we are going to just go with the odds on this one.
Our off the cuff pick was the Bald Birds laying the points with the Over.
The Eagles and Jalen Hurts torched the Norsemen last year...and Minny’s secondary wasn’t upgraded in the off season...
Last week, the Vikings lost to Baker Mayfield and the Mateys 20-17...-they advanced the rock 5.9 YPP and only gave up 3.6 YPP...
The Eagles went up to the Razor in Foxboro, sprinted out to a 16-0 lead, the hung on for a 25-20 win...Hurts Torched Belichick’s boys the whole game.
We just have never believed in Kirk Cousins; he’s a good quarterback who is never good enough.
Although neither squad impressed in Week One, Philly top to bottom--players 1-53--is clearly the more talented/deeper team.
Even with All-Pro CB, James Bradberry on the concussion bus, the Eagles secondary and pass rush is better than Minny’s.
How about some Vikings trends:
Minnesota is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games.
The total has gone OVER in 7 of Minnesota's last 9 games.
Minnesota is 12-5 SU in their last 17 games.
Minnesota is 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games against Philadelphia.
Minnesota is 5-11 SU in their last 16 games against Philadelphia.
Minnesota is 5-2 SU in their last 7 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Minnesota's last 7 games when playing on the road against Philadelphia.
Minnesota is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against an opponent in the National Football Conference conference.
Minnesota is 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against an opponent in the National Football Conference East division.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Minnesota's last 5 games played in September.
Here’s a few for the Eagles:
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Philadelphia's last 6 games.
Philadelphia is 16-4 SU in their last 20 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Philadelphia's last 5 games at home.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Philadelphia's last 7 games when playing at home against Minnesota.
Philadelphia is 11-3 SU in their last 14 games against an opponent in the National Football Conference conference.
Philadelphia is 5-0 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the National Football Conference North division.
Philadelphia is 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games played in September.
Philadelphia is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games played in week 2.
The Eagles are at home on the short week; even though that trend has been streaky both ways recently; in the last 20 years, home teams fared better.
