Trends with Benefits: Week 9 NFL Betting

Top trends and sports betting tips from Sunday’s late games around the league including the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Oakland Raiders

 

One of the more active pointspreads on the NFL odds board with sportsbooks this afternoon has been the Eagle and Raiders as money that flowed heavily to the home side has started to swing back towards the road  dog Eagles. It’s just seems like the books are trying to balance off their action but no one really knows just how effective Nick Foles will be running this offense.

 

Foles’ best two games this season were on the road against the Giants (Week 5) and Bucs (Week 6) but he was 11 of 29 for 80 yards at home against Dallas last week and none of those three defenses are among the league’s elite. With a line between +/-3 the Eagle are 5-11 SU/ATS on the road off home game and they’ll look to get the run game untracked but this could be a grind.

Oakland’s run D is sixth in the league at 90 RYPG allowed and first overall at home (57 RYPG allowed)

The Raiders held the Steelers to 35 yards on the ground last week, the third team they’ve held under 40 rushing yards this season alone! Oakland’ averaging a respectable three sacks per game and under pressure, we don’t have lot of confidence in Foles accuracy or his receiver’s ability to make plays down field.
