San Francisco 49ers vs. Philadelphia Eagles Analysis
Philadelphia Eagles Performance Recap and Analysis
With passer Jalen Hurts out in front against the New York Giants Saturday, the Eagles looked like the crew that was hardly tested during a league-best 13-1 start.
Hurts notched two touchdown strikes and ran for another during a commanding first half, and Philly outclassed their visitors, 38-7, in a divisional playoff matchup.
Hurts, who’s high on NFL MVP odds, missed two defeats late in the schedule with a sprained right shoulder and didn’t show the Giants much in the season finale as the Eagles ran a bland attack meant to protect the talented signal-caller.
NFL team stats had Philly’s offensive front opening wide holes for Miles Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell, and the Eagles recorded 268 yards on the ground.
We’ll want to know who is and isn’t healthy before our 49ers vs Eagles betting picks.
Cornerback Avonte Maddox (toe) could return to practice this week. Receiver A.J. Brown hurt his hip against New York but should be good to go.
Betting Trends to Know
The Eagles have been comfortable at their home stadium this year, going 7-2 in Philly’s unique atmosphere. Philly is known for its passionate fans, who should play at least somewhat of a role in this one.
San Francisco 49ers Performance Recap and Analysis
It seems that for a young quarterback who nearly went without being drafted, Brock Purdy landed in a pretty perfect situation. With weapons such as Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, and Christian McCaffrey, Purdy hasn’t been asked to shoulder everything, allowing those stats to shine.
The Iowa State product took control of the offense after veteran Jimmy Garoppolo broke his foot against the Dolphins on Dec. 4. In nine regular-season contests, NFL player stats show that he completed 67.1% of his 170 throws for 1,374 yards, 16 scores, and only four picks.
The NFL injury report has tailbacks McCaffrey (calf) and Elijah Mitchell (groin) both questionable, but head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that he expects both to play against the Eagles.
Defensive end Charles Omenihu (oblique) is also on the injury report and is listed as day-to-day.
Betting Trends to Know
Since starting 3-4, San Francisco hasn’t lost since before Halloween. This past Sunday’s home win over Dallas marked the 12th game in a row that the 49ers have won. Momentum in the NFL standings is certainly no problem heading into this one.
San Francisco 49ers vs. Philadelphia Eagles Betting Picks
San Francisco 49ers moneyline: Take the 49ers to come out on top in this matchup to make some money. They’ve been on a roll for months, and momentum matters this late in the season. It doesn’t seem to matter who they have behind the center. Things are just working.
San Francisco 49ers spread: With that, obviously, take San Francisco to cover the spread. Maybe combine this with the moneyline in NFL picks and parlays.
Under: Both of these defenses smothered their opponents last week in NFL matchups. Expect a staunch effort here, too, and some true playoff football. The dynamic of two strong defenses will keep it to a low score.
San Francisco 49ers vs. Philadelphia Eagles Score Predictions
