This just in. The Philadelphia Eagles are very popular. Not just in the realm of American football betting. Eagles fans already took over StubHub Center earlier this season. Admittedly, not a hard feat to accomplish. Still, Fox fears same fate awaits Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. When the Birds visit the Mob Squad. The television network is looking for actors. To play Los Angeles Rams fans. Guess no one heeded Todd Gurley’s “Please come to our games! Please come to our games!” pleas.

Eagles are two-point road favorites
The Eagles are coming off a 10-24 loss to Seattle. That snapped their nine-game winning streak. However, Philly could get one foot in the door, first round bye-wise. A win over the Rams plus the Saint’s loss on TNF will do the trick. Moreover, the Eagles could clinch the NFC East title. If they win and/or the Cowboys lose. There are a few things Philly can do to deliver on the first part of that formula. Stop Todd Gurley. Improve blocking. Limit penalties. It will be another big game for Carson Wentz. He might be without Zach Ertz, though. The tight end has practiced on a limited basis. Ertz has not yet cleared the league-mandated concussion protocol, though.
The Eagles are 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games in December. They are 5-2 ATS in their last seven on the road. They are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games playing NFC teams. They are 8-1 ATS in their last nine games overall. They are 4-0 against the American football betting spread in their last four meetings with the Rams. The favoured team, which will be Philly when the Birds visit the Mob Squad, is 4-1 ATS in their last five meetings in this matchup.
The Rams have a hard time covering against the Eagles
The Rams have bounced back nicely from their setback against the Vikings. They have won two straight thenceforth. Including a 32-16 win over the Cardinals. The Rams defense had two interceptions and six sacks. The offense was okay. It needs to be more than okay, though. That is, if they want to upset the Eagles. Todd Gurley needs to be fed. Jared Goff needs time in the pocket. Speaking of the Rams QB, “Jared Goff gets the better of his duel with Carson Wentz,” Pete Prisco predicts. Why? Because “it’s tough to play on the road after playing Seattle in a physical game.” If you say so.
The Rams are 1-10-1 ATS in their last 12 games meetings with the Eagles. They are are 1-4 ATS in their last five games in December. They are 4-1 ATS in their last five playing NFC teams. They are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. The home team is 7-3 against the American football betting spread in their last 10 encounters between Rams and Eagles.
