3 units on Arizona PICK () (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Eagles were officially exposed as a fraud last week. After losing four straight SU and ATS, they instilled hope in many by winning two in a row, the last being a high-profile beat down of the Dallas Cowboys. Then they faced a must-win home game last week on Monday night. They were instilled as an 8-point favorite. And they lost. There can't be anything left in the tank for this team after that. They now know in their hearts of hearts that at 3-5, their sky high hopes are on life support. How can they be up for this game against lowly Arizona? Sure, the Cards are a mess and John Skelton is scary. But, 14 points in the NFL is a huge hurdle to climb, even for motivated teams. The Eagles simply haven't shown that they deserve to lay two touchdowns against anyone. Who have they beaten? St. Louis, Washington and Dallas - three teams with a combined 8-16 record. And, the Eagles are coming off a short week of preparation. Meanwhile, Arizona is coming in with some confidence after an exciting win last week. I like Arizona plus the boatload of points here.
