Had a nice TNF winner with Cowboys team total sailing over, but the Sunday card this week is a tough one. I’m going to focus on the game of the week here with a growing road favorite. Here’s what I like for bets available on DraftKings Sportsbook this week.
My 2023 NFL betting record entering Week 13 is 53-45-4 (-0.75-units)
San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles
49ers -3 (-108) — 1.5-units
Full disclosure, I did play this one earlier in the week at a better number, but just getting to the article and using the number available on Friday afternoon. Laying three points here is as far as I’d go, and if the moneyline dips back down below -150, that’d be how I’d play it.
The spot screams Niners here, though, even cross country on the road. San Francisco slipped up a bit when it wasn’t healthy, but with all the key bodies in the mix, they’ve probably been the best team in the NFL this season. They’re going to want to prove that against a Philly team that’s coming off some big wins to get to 10-1.
Great revenge angle here after the 49ers got smoked in this stadium in the NFC Championship game last season, for the most part operating without a quarterback. I expect the 49ers to run the ball down Philly’s throat, and then open up some big chances in the pass game against a suspect secondary.
Meanwhile, the spot couldn’t be tougher for the Eagles — not just because of the stretch of games they are in, but how they’re winning them. Philly had a huge comeback at Kansas City on MNF, then on a short week they were able to manufacture a massive comeback win over the Bills in OT. Now you have to prep for a Niners squad that’s been off since Thanksgiving to prepare for this game, all while Philly has a massive game in Dallas to lookahead to next week.
This should be the spot the Eagles finally slip up, especially if San Francisco plays its best game.
