San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles Final Betting Prediction
Trends say the Eagles cover. Even though Philadelphia is 1-6 against the spread in their last 7, the cover happened last Sunday. The 49ers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10.
But trends aren’t the lone reason to back the Eagles. Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts rushed for 62 yards on 7 carries and threw for 264 yards and 3 TDs when completing 27-of-35.
Hurts ran the offense to perfection. Atlanta has a terrible defense, yes, but Hurts could have similar success versus San Francisco’s D. Javon Kinlaw and Dee Ford are listed as questionable. Jason Verrett, San Francisco’s starting cornerback, is out for the season.
On offense, The 49ers must play without Raheem Mostert who is out for the foreseeable future. SF had to work hard to beat Detroit last week while Philly rolled.
Expect the Eagles to provide another impressive performance. At home, not only should Philadelphia cover, but they should beat the 49ers on the moneyline.
