NFL Betting: Philadelphia Eagles vs. San Francisco 49ers

To keep pace in the incredibly difficult NFC East, the Eagles may be facing a must NFL betting win this week when they travel across the country to play the 49ers.

The Eagles (2-3 SU, 3-2 ATS) will have to get it done without Brian Westbrook who suffered cracked ribs against the Redskins; this may be a difficult task as after Westbrook went down the Eagle offense stalled after being up 14-0.

Last week, QB JT O’Sullivan giveth and taketh away from the 49ers (2-3 SU, 2-3 ATS), throwing three touchdowns and three interceptions that gave the 49ers a 30-21 NFL gambling loss at the hands of the Patriots. Last week, Jim Johnson’s usually stout defense got worked over for 388 yards by the Redskins in the Eagles 23-17 loss.

They had no answer for RB Clinton Portis or QB Jason Campbell and the Redskins converted 11 of 19 third down opportunities in the game. After starting the season 3-0 ATS, the Eagles have failed to cover their last two games against the pro football betting line.

Also, it is worthy to note that the Eagles have failed to win a game on the road so far this season, which is possible bad news for NFL betting fans who back teams on the moneyline. So far this season, the NFL odds have had the 49ers as underdogs in four of their first five games and this continues this week against the Eagles.

QB J.T. O’Sullivan has not been given much help by his offensive line and has already been sacked 20 times this season, the most in the NFL. However, veteran WR Isaac Bruce has proven to be a boost to O’Sullivan and the 49er receiving corps, catching three passes for 49 yards and two touchdowns last week.

The 49ers are only 1-3 ATS per the pro football wagering odds in games where they are an underdog so far this year. The NFL betting line finds the Eagles installed as five-point road favorites in this game with a ‘total’ of 42.5 points.
