The Thursday Night Football matchup this week between the Eagles and Texans is an interesting one from a betting perspective. The Eagles are -13.5 favorites as I type this, and it was at -14 earlier. That seems like a lot of points to give up, but the Texans are a mess so it makes sense why the line is this high.
It feels to me like a game where the Eagles boat race them in the first half, get out a massive lead, then coast in the second half. However, 14 points is a lot, and I think the Texans find a way to cover here. Meemaw is going to leave the back door wide open tonight before she goes to sleep.
In terms of player props, I expect Miles Sanders to clear his 76.5 rushing yards prop fairly easily tonight, with a majority of his yards coming in the second half. A sneaky angle I'm taking though is his Under 8.5 receiving yards. He rarely catches passes, and I don't expect very many obvious passing down scenarios for the Eagles tonight.
Bets of the Day:
Miles Sanders Under 8.5 Receiving yards -113 1u
Golden State Warriors/Orlando Magic Under 226 -110 1u
The Magic will look to slow down the pace against the Warriors and jam the basketball down into the paint, where they have a distinct advantage with their size. I like the Under to smack here.
Carolina Hurricanes ML -110 1u
The NHL slate is huge tonight and this is the one play I can fully behind. Tampa Bay hasn't looked good at all this year and I think Carolina takes the win tonight on the road against this slow skating Lighting team.
