Washington Commanders

If Washington could finish off drives a little better, the Commanders might be in a better position to challenge for a playoff spot and that might have changed the Commanders vs Eagles odds.

Washington has scored 52 points in the last four games that it has lost.

The Commanders came away with points in five of their last 10 drives into the red zone.

Running backs Antonio Gibson and Brian Robinson are combining for just 3.5 yards per carry and having rookie receiver Jahan Dotson slowed by injury is not ideal.

Philadelphia Eagles

The schedule has not been the most difficult in the NFL and the Eagles have found some breaks when it comes to injuries to the other teams. Still, while squads expected to compete for NFC supremacy have faltered, the Eagles are looking more and more like a legitimate Super Bowl contender. That is evident when looking at the Commanders vs Eagles odds.

Jalen Hurts is second among starting quarterbacks in passing efficiency even though he has only 12 TD passes in eight games. Miles Sanders and A.J. Brown are in the top 10 in rushing and receiving yards.

Javon Hargrave is approaching his career high for sacks for a talented front seven and he is a major reason why the Eagles are third in the NFL in total defense and fourth in scoring defense.

This is the third game in a row when the Eagles are a double-digit favorite.

Commanders vs Eagles Injury Report

The NFL injury report for this week for the Washington starts with linebackers Cole Holcomb (foot) and David Mayo (hamstring), running back J.D. McKissic (neck) as well as defensive ends Shaka Toney (calf) and Chase Young (knee) are questionable. Cornerback Tariq Castro-Fields (knee), receiver Jahan Dotson (hamstring) and guard Wes Schweitzer (concussion) are out indefinitely.

For the Eagles, defensive end Janarius Robinson (ankle) and defensive back Josiah Scott (ankle) are questionable while defensive tackle Jordan Davis (ankle) is out indefinitely.

Commanders vs Eagles Head to Head

Philadelphia has won nine of the last 11 meetings against Washington and covered in each of those victories.
When the teams met in September, receiver DeVonta Smith had 169 yards on eight catches in Philadelphia’s 24-8 road win when the Eagles listed as a 5.5-point favorite.

Three of the last four meetings have gone under the total. With a total of 44, this is the eighth time in last nine meetings that the total was under 45.

Commanders vs Eagles Betting Preview

The Eagles have covered in each of their first four home games. Meanwhile, six of the Commanders’ first nine games finished under the total.

The total went from 45 to 44 with the Moneyline for the Eagles going from -460 to -525.

There has been very little movement in the lines as the NFL spreads opened with the Eagles favored by 10.5 points and now the line is at 11. The total went from 45 to 44 with the Moneyline for the Eagles going from -460 to -525.

After winning his first two starts, Taylor Heinicke was just 15 of 28 for 149 yards in Washington’s loss to Minnesota so more will be needed from him for running lanes to open up for the struggling running game.

Jalen Hurts has eight TD passes and no interceptions over his last four games for the Eagles. He has four touchdowns and one interception in his last three games against the Commanders.
