Philadelphia at Denver
Sunday 11/14 04:25 PM Eastern
1 unit on Denver -135 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.74) RESULT: LOSS
Denver traded its star pass rusher, Von Miller, and then the rest of the defensive unit stepped up and played its best game of the season in dominating the Cowboys on Sunday. This actually was the second great defensive performance in a row for the Broncos as they beat Washington 17-10 the week before, and they now are #6 in the league in total yards and rushing yards allowed (#8 in pass defense). Philadelphia comes into Denver following a 27-24 home loss to the Chargers when Dustin Hopkins kicked a 29-yard field goal with two seconds left after the teams traded TDs on four straight second-half drives. The Eagles are just 3-5 ATS their last eight games, are 2-5 ATS their past seven games as road underdogs, and 3-8 ATS their past 11 road games overall. Teddy Bridgewater is getting more comfortable as he finished 19 of 28 for 249 yards and Denver converted 8 of 15 third downs against Dallas. Denver is favored by a field goal, and the Eagles are having trouble closing out games. Go with the Broncos on the moneyline.
