Eagles vs Cardinals Free Pick
Eagles at Arizona (AZ -6.5, 49.5)
The Eagles looked like a whole new team after upsetting the Saints with Jalen Hurts making his first start in Philly and the Cardinals took advantage of a beaten-up Giants team. 6.5 is the number here despite the Cards sitting below .500 against the book. It’s going to be a similar QB matchup with Kyler and Hurts who matchup about the same. Hurts ran for 106 yards last week along with Miles Sanders who ran for 115 and the Cards rush defense ranks just 12th in the league. Philly has a competent defense that ranks 10th in the passing game. This could be a toss-up if Hurts plays well again.
if your book gives you 6.5, take it as early as you can because this thing should come down closer to 4.5.The Eagles are coming off a win against the best team in the NFC and they made a change that will completely change their offense. With Hurts they have so many more options and he proved that with over 273 all-purpose yards. The Cards are just 2-4 when trying to cover at home this year and while Philly has looked unbelievably suspect this year, this is a brand-new offense with Hurts. This number is based on the Cards last win when it should be based off the Eagles last win. They have lost to Russ, Tua, Teddy Bridgewater and Cam Newton this year - all those QBs are similar to Hurts and it’s clear they’ve got an issue with that.
Prediction: Eagles 24 Cardinals 26
