The Washington Football Team and Philadelphia Eagles meet on Tuesday night with both teams dealing with uncertainty at quarterback. Perhaps that's why the betting public is split when it comes to the prop market.
Jalen Hurts will start for the Eagles but is coming off an injury that opened the door for backup Gardner Minshew to play well in Week 13 against the Jets. The team has had a bye to get Hurts healthy, but there's at least conversation around the future of the position for the Eagles, and who the right person is for the job.
Meanwhile, Washington is down to its fourth quarterback. Ryan Fitzpatrick is on IR while Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen are both on the COVID-19/Reserve list. Enter free agent Garrett Gilbert.
Gilbert was signed this week and will make the start for Washington. He started one game for the Dallas Cowboys last season, completing 55% of his passes for 243 yards with a touchdown and a pick.
The line has moved from to 6.5 after the Eagles opened as 4-point favorites. The total is down to 42.5 from 43.5.
But bettors are investing in other ways, too.
According to data released by BetMGM on Tuesday morning, two alternate prop bets getting hit come with +310 odds (bet $100, profit $310).
The most popular choice is the Eagles winning parlayed with both teams scoring at least 20 points. The other is Washington covering an alternate line of +3.5 parlayed with the game going over 40.5 total points.
While those bets show some optimism in Washington's offense, the third most-bet prop is on Washington scoring under 17.5 points (-120 odds).
As of this writing, over 70% of bets tracked by our Action Network Pro Report are on the Eagles to cover.
