6-Point Teaser: PHI -0.5/LAR -0.5 (-120)
Tracking these COVID games that change dates are a lot of work. They were moved for a reason with so many people ruled out, and then we have to figure out who’s able to return for the game on the new date and who isn’t.
The Eagles seem to be relatively healthy here at home in a massive game for playoff implications with Washington. The Football Team is getting the short end of the stick here, potentially playing without their top-two quarterbacks. Once we can confirm Garrett Gilbert will be the QB for Washington, that’s the time I want to lock this one in. The Eagles should control the game on the ground, and asking Gilbert to go out and win a divisional road game in December seems like a tall order.
In the other game, at first it was the Rams hit hardest with COVID. But now key names like Odell Beckham Jr. and Jalen Ramsey are off the list. Seattle has had some key names like Tyler Lockett go on the list, and now the Seahawks are probably in the tougher spot here. After a terrific performance from the Rams on defense on MNF, I think they’ll be able to control this game at home and do enough on offense to earn the win.
Favorites have done pretty well in these postponed COVID games, dating back through last season. We saw two road favorites get wins on Monday, and I like the chances even more with these two large home favorites.
This number feels extremely modest for Hurts on the ground. He’s gone over this number in seven in a row (six if the number eclipses 44), and has gone over in 10 of 12 games this season (nine if the number eclipses 44).
Hurts is averaging 62.7 rushing yards over his last seven games, and Washington ranks in the bottom-10 in the NFL in rushing yards allowed to opposing QBs. While Hurts is returning from an ankle injury, it kept him out just one game to get rest around the bye. He hasn’t seen the field since November 28, so he should be pretty fresh. This is a must-win game, so no reason to hold anything back. Hurts should be aggressive to take yards on the ground.
