Betting market: Philadelphia opened as a 3-point road favorite and is receiving 58% of tickets and 63% of dollars wagered on the spread at the time of writing (see live data here).
There’s been a bit of a back and forth between sharp bettors playing different sides of the spread in this matchup depending on the vig at the time, but not enough to inspire oddsmakers to move off the key number of 3. — PJ Walsh
Trends to know: The Eagles enter this Thursday Night Football game failing to cover the spread in their past four games, dating back to Week 2 against “FitzMagic.”
Since 2003, teams that fail to cover the spread in four-plus consecutive games after making the playoffs the previous season are 60-33-3 ATS (+24.1 units) in their next game.
Teams that lost straight up in their previous game in that spot are 51-25-3 ATS (67.1%). — Evan Abrams
