Betting market: Bettors clearly want no part of a team trying to decide between Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler at quarterback. Eighty-one percent of tickets and 83% of dollars wagered are laying the points with Philly.
One-sided Eagles money has moved this line from an opener of Philadelphia -2 to -3.5 (+100) at the time of writing (see live betting data here).
This number has hit +3.5 a few different times earlier in the week, and sharp bettors pounced on the Jags and the hook each instance to drive the line back to +3. — PJ Walsh
