Why Bet on the Philadelphia Eagles?
The Philadelphia Eagles lost in Week 1 to the Atlanta Falcons then lost three games in a row. They bounced back in a road win against the Panthers in Week 5, but it was a short-lived celebration after losing to the Buccaneers in their most recent outing.
In the last five weeks, the Eagles managed to score 20 points or more in four games. Their overall statistics tell us that they are decent in finding the end zone with 2.5 touchdowns (15th) per game. However, when it comes to points per game, the Eagles average just 22.8 (20th).
Rushing is one of the more prominent features of the Eagles. They average 1.2 rushing touchdowns per game (7th). But, their rushing play percentage is at 37.39% (23rd) and could do with more improvement.
Since the start of the season, the Eagles have allowed 21 points or less in three games. Previewing the defense, the team ranks 23rd in the league in opponent points per game. With a 25.3 opponent points per game average, they might have a hard time containing a competent Raiders offense.
The Eagles enter the game with a healthy squad. No notable starters are on the questionable list, but the duo of Dallas Goedert and Lane Johnson remain out with injuries.
Why Bet on the Las Vegas Raiders?
After recovering from a two-game losing streak, the Raiders are back on track. Previously, they recorded a 34-24 victory over the Broncos. Moreover, it’s the third game in the season where the Raiders scored 30 points or more.
The Raiders look solid at the Allegiant Stadium, winning two of their three games at home this season. In the two wins, they scored 31 points or more and allowed 27 or more opponent points. Currently, the team records 24.5 points per game (13th) and scored 2.7 touchdowns per game (15th). The side also showcases positive rushing stats, documenting 1.0 rushing touchdowns per game (11th).
Defensively, we’ve seen the Raiders hold opponents to 17 points or less in two games. On paper, they allow 24.0 points per game (16th) and give up 353.3 yards per game (14th). Furthermore, teams are recording 130.7 rushing yards per game against Las Vegas.
Just like the Eagles, the Raiders enter the game with a relatively healthy squad. Only right defensive tackle Jonathan Hankins is on the questionable list following a hip injury.

Eagles vs. Raiders Expert Betting Predictions
This is an interesting game as the Eagles hold the upper edge on the ground while the Raiders boast impressive passing attacks in the league. The Eagles also found success on the road this season. There’s a good chance that they cover the spread and maintain respectable winning chances with that. On the other hand, the Raiders do well to hold the top spot in the AFC West despite failing to meet several expectations this season. Nevertheless, having home-field advantage and a better overall record makes them the favorites in this contest.
