Philadelphia at Houston
Sunday 11/02 01:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Philadelphia -1 (-105) (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: WIN
The Philadelphia Eagles should be kicking themselves as they are a 5-2 team that could easily be 7-0. They squandered 21 non-offensive points scored in San Francisco, and last week they had Arizona down 20-17 on the road with under two minutes left, only to allow a 75-yard TD pass for a 24-20 loss. The Eagles have been one of the most consistent offensive teams in the NFL as they have scored 20 or more points now in 16 straight games. They are now 12-3 in their last 15 regular season games, making them an elite team over the last season's worth of games. Houston is off to a 4-4 start, which certainly is much better than the two games they won all last season. The problem is that the four wins have come at the expense of teams that have a combined record of 10-21. The four losses have come against teams that are a combined 19-8. If they want to be taken seriously they have to beat somebody and they have not (5-12 straight-up vs. winning teams the past 2.5 seasons). As much as this Texans team has turned the corner, they have not been able to beat the good teams. Take Philadelphia.
