Our picks, best bets

Pick against the spread: Eagles -6.5

This seems like the year that quarterbacks are playing with a chip on their shoulder. Hurts has been great this season, and Wentz has been airing out the ball. This should be a competitive game, but Philadelphia has been playing better all-around football and should cover the spread in this one.

Over/under: Over 47

Both of Washington’s games would have eclipsed this point total. While their offense has played well, the important part is that they gave up 22 points to the Jacksonville offense and then 36 to the Detroit offense. Even if Philly can stifle their offense, the Eagles should be able to supplement plenty of offense. I like the over here.

Player prop: Jalen Hurts over 241.5 passing yards (-115)

Hurts is known for his legs and the effect he can have on the game on the ground. He threw for 243 yards in the first game of the season and then followed it up with 333 passing yards last week. The Commanders’ defense has given up 275 yards to Trevor Lawrence and 337 yards to Carson Wentz through the first two weeks. Take the over on Hurts’ passing yardage this week.
