49ers vs. Eagles Picks
Chris Raybon: Under 49 is my favorite total bet of the week.
Both teams sit back in coverage rather than blitzing: The Eagles blitzed just 7.7% of the time in Week 1, tied for second-fewest, and the 49ers blitzed 9.5% of the time, fourth-fewest. This forces opposing offenses to dink and dunk their way down the field: The Eagles allowed an average depth of target of 5.0 and the 49ers allowed 5.4, both bottom-six rates. Both teams’ offensive metrics are skewed upward after facing two miserable defenses in the Lions and Falcons. The under is 28-12 at Lincoln Financial Field since 2016.
I also grabbed at Eagles at +3.5, though I’d pass at 3. Even when the 49ers defense was at its peak back in 2019, mobile QBs gave them the most troubles. Because the Eagles have stellar lines on both sides of the ball and a quarterback that can extend plays in Jalen Hurts, they should be a live dog all year. West-cost teams tend to do just fine traveling east these days, but the 49ers are dealing with injury issues and may not have their A-game this week.
Kyle Shanahan is also just 7-18-1 (28%) ATS as a favorite.
Picks: Under 49 (to 47), Eagles +3.5 (to +3.5)
49ers vs. Eagles Props To Bet
DeVonta Smith Over 47.5 Rec Yards (-115) at BetMGM
Sean Koerner: Smith had a solid NFL debut with six catches for 71 yards and a touchdown — and he could have gone for more if the Falcons put up more of a fight in their 32-6 loss to the Eagles.
I expect the rookie to continue to be the true alpha WR the Eagles have been looking for over the past couple of seasons. The 49ers also just lost top cornerback Jason Verrett to the IR.
