Tennessee at Philadelphia
Sunday 11/23 01:00 PM Eastern
1.5 units on Tennessee +11 (-105) (risk 1.5 to return 2.93) RESULT: LOSS
The Philadelphia Eagles had everything going at 7-2 until they went to Lambeau last week. In that game they suffered a humiliating loss as the Packers torched them for over 50 points. Mark Sanchez seemed to show signs of why he lost his starting QB role with the NY Jets: turnovers. Sanchez threw two INTs and also fumbled three times, losing two of them. That isn't a good sign because he had shown confidence replacing Foles, but the issues that drove him out of New York may ultimately be back to haunt him in Philly. Tennessee is just 2-8 on the season which won't get the interest of Philly. Especially considering the Eagles played a big game last week and they have an even bigger game next week on Thanksgiving Day off short rest. The fact is they follow Dallas on Turkey day with Seattle, and then Dallas again, so this is a huge sandwich game for them. The Eagles have not been good after a poor defensive game as they are 3-12-1 ATS after allowing more than 350 yards in their previous game. The Eagles have allowed 25.1 poitns per game on the season so I expect the Titans to find some success. Tennessee has nothing to lose here and Mettenberger has been able to move the ball fairly well, throwing for 7.8 yards per attempt, which is better by more than a yard compared to Jake Locker. Grab the generous points on Tennessee.
