Washington at Philadelphia

2 units on Washington PICK () (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: LOSS

The Eagles were supposed to be the Miami Heat of the NFL. While it didn't work out for the Heat last year they did make a run in the playoffs. That is a feat that Philadelphia won't get a chance to do this year. The Eagles have played better down the stretch, but it was too little too late. Now that they have zero incentive here, look for the team that kept them out of the playoffs most of the year to emerge over the one we have seen the last few weeks. Washington is 5-10, but down the stretch they have gotten better with a new found running game. They have played tough teams tough, losing to New England by just 7 and beating the Giants and falling to the Cowboys by a FG in overtime. They have not been an underdog all season by more than +7.5 and suddenly the Eagles are posted as 9-point chalk? I'm not buying it as this is a definite overlay. The Skins are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 as a dog from +3.5 to +10. The Eagles are just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 at home. Everyone is thinking that they will play hard to get to .500. There have only been two cases of teams playing in the last week of the season trying to do the same as a home favorite of more points, and they both failed to cover and one lost outright! Play on Washington in this one.
