1 unit on Las Vegas +8.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: WIN
All's well in Philadelphia as T.O. and McNabb are laughing like good ole buddies again. The Eagles crushed San Francisco last week 42-3. But who cares? After a loss to Atlanta, we knew they'd take out their frustrations on the defenseless 49ers. Owens and McNabb both had something to prove last week. But, how easily everyone forgets their opening day loss to Atlanta. They are again in the basement in terms of stopping the run (ranked 27th in rushing defense). Oakland hasn't won yet but they have played the defending Super Bowl champs and Kansas City who might own that title at this time next year. Their record doesn't surprise me. This line is just too high. Philly's strength is pass defense but Moss will find success here. Take the generous points. One star on Oakland.
