The Eagles hit the road to face the Jets in Week 13. The Eagles look good after securing three wins in their last five games, including two road wins. They still have a shot at a postseason run and close down on the second spot at the NFC East division. Meanwhile, the Jets are having an underwhelming season. However, the team broke a three-game losing streak and might have some momentum behind them as they host the contest.

Why Bet on the Philadelphia Eagles?
The Eagles are coming from a 13-7 loss to another team from New York. The team will try to bounce back from the defeat as they enter the MetLife Stadium as favorites.
The Eagles scored 30 points or more in two of their last three games. They record 25.3 points (12th) and 351.1 yards (18th) per game. Head coach Nick Sirianni does not prioritize his squad’s passing game. Instead, most of the offensive threat comes from their rushing plays. The Eagles are one of the best rushing teams right now. They hold a league-high 157.9 rushing yards (first) per game average. The team executes 30.9 rushes (third) per game and averages 1.5 rushing touchdowns in 12 games.
Defensively, the Eagles allow 22.8 opponent points (15th) per game. The unit does well to limit opponent passing yards to 228.4 (11th) and 112.7 opponent rushing yards (16th) per game. Moreover, the team held the Giants to 70 rushing yards despite losing the contest.
The visitors are plagued with injuries. They have four offensive starters on the questionable list, and another three defensive players added. The list features Miles Sanders (ankle), DeVonta Smith (illness), Jason Kelce (knee), Josh Sweat (knee), Derek Barnett (ribs), and T.J. Edwards (ankle).
Why Bet on the New York Jets?
The Jets will try to bring pace from their recent victory against the Texans in Week 12. They took control of the game in the third quarter and pulled away from thereon. By the final whistle, the Jets recorded 60 total yards and 60 rushing yards more than their opponents.
Their recent results were a step up from their overall numbers. The Team averages 18.1 points (27th) and 331.2 total yards (21st) per game. They are not the best rushing team in the league right now. This shouldn’t worry the Eagles’ mediocre rushing defense. However, the visitors should look out for the Jets’ passing abilities. The hosts record 245.2 passing yards (11th) in 11 games.
There’s not much to highlight when looking at the Jets’ defense. The team should put pressure on the offensive end rather than try to win the game on this side of the field. The team allows the most points per game in the league at 30.4. The side also allows 128.8 opponent rushing yards (27th) and 266.2 opponent passing yards (29th) per game.
The Jets have multiple starters that might miss Sunday’s game. Wide receiver Corey Davis is suffering from a groin injury. Meanwhile, Morgan Moses (knee), John Franklin-Myers (hip), Sheldon Rankins (knee), and Quincy Williams (calf) join him on the questionable list.

Eagles vs. Jets Expert Betting Predictions
The visitors have the edge over the hosts in this one. The Jets’ offense has been shaky at times, and we expect the Eagles to exploit this. The Jets have been competitive through the defense, but the better-storing teams haven’t had much trouble getting past it. Covering the spread should be doable for the team nonetheless. On the other hand, the Eagles faced scoring issues along the way, but remained the superior team between the two.
