The Philadelphia Eagles kept their playoff hopes alive with a stunning comeback win over the New York Giants last week – but there’s plenty more work to be done as they visit Washington on Sunday. The Eagles’ beleaguered receiving corps received more bad news this week, losing Alshon Jeffery to IR. But they might not need a lot of healthy receiving bodies to upend a Washington team that has just one victory in five games at FedEx Field this season.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Philadelphia opened as high as -6 in some spots, but has settled into more modest expectations given its battered roster. But no matter the spread, the Eagles have fared poorly in this situation in recent years, having gone just 2-5 ATS in its previous seven games as a road favourite; that stretch includes four SU losses. But while Washington owns an identical ATS record in its last seven as a home fave, it’s coming off back-to-back covers against San Francisco and Detroit.

 

The total for this one is among the lowest of any Week 15 game, and with good reason: The Eagles couldn’t muster much of anything for the first 55 minutes of its victory over the Giants, while Washington comes in as the lowest-scoring team in the league through its first 13 games. It will come as no surprise, then, to note that Philly has converted the Under in four of its past five games while Washington is 8-2 to the Under in its previous 10.

Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles come in having scored 54 points over their previous two games is impressive given how short-handed they’ve been on offence – and the degree of difficulty gets even steeper now that Alshon Jeffery is confirmed to have been lost for the season. With WR Nelson Agholor (knee) and RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) also banged up, it could be another banner game for tight end Zach Ertz, who had nine catches for 91 yards and two TDs last week.

Washington

You have to feel for running back Derrius Guice. After a knee injury cost him his entire 2018 rookie season, Guice battled injury again to open 2019 but looked sensational once he returned, averaging 5.8 yards per carry on 42 attempts. But another knee injury suffered in last week’s 20-15 loss to the Green Bay Packers will land Guice on the shelf for each of Washington’s final three games, leaving Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson as the top backfield options.
