Hawkeye Posted October 31, 2022 Share Posted October 31, 2022 Another week, another double-digit line. This time, it's the second-largest spread of the year (behind Bills -14 vs Steelers), and don't be surprised if it moves up. On the one hand, it's a short week on the road against a team the Eagles rarely see, and the OTHER Houston/Philadelphia game will be on at the same time. That's an easy spot for a big underdog to make things interesting. On the other hand, Jalen Hurts is from Houston and has never played in front of his hometown crowd before and he is the unquestioned leader of this team. I don't see a let-up. Remember when double-digit NFL favorites were almost always a loss ATS? Then, a few years ago, as analytics and technology cut into home-field advantage, double-digit favorites started covering at a clip of around 53%. Well, this season, road teams are covering 54%, but road favorites are only covering 46%. This might be the first double-digit road favorite of the year, which lowers the degree of confidence even more. Side: Eagles -13/13.5 Total: 43.5 Moneyline: Eagles -750 - Texans +525 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
