Washington Philadelphia Prediction, Eagles Cover

Can a QB plucked from New England’s practise squad this week lead Washington to a win – or at least a cover – in Philadelphia Tuesday night? Barring a last-minute Covid clearance, WFT will rely on Garrett Gilbert, with one career NFL start since being drafted in 2014, in a crucial NFC East tilt.

Washington was an 8.5-point dog as of midday at FanDuel but that line could move during the day. They remain without  offensive weapons J.D McKissic and Curtis Samuel, as well as guard Brandon Scherff. 

The Eagles will be without Landon Dickerson at right guard, but otherwise are healthy on both sides of the ball. Jalen Hurts will start, and they also get spark plug Jordan Howard back.  Taking the Eagles -8.5 at FanDuel is the best look for this game.

Why Washington will cover the spread

With the game moving to Tuesday, Washington was able to get their defensive line back from the Covid list. That matchup in the trenches now flips in Washington’s favor, which is a piss-off for Eagles fans and bettors. 

Washington’s offense is much improved in recent weeks. Even with their awful performance against Dallas last week, they still sit at 14th in EPA per play since Week 9. Offensive coordinator Scott Turner has done a terrific job of maximizing this offense. 

Why Philadelphia will cover the spread

The return of Hurts provides a different element to this Eagles offense. He has the second-most rushing yards among QBs, forcing Washington’s defensive line to spy and respect his rushing ability. 

If Gilbert starts, he benefits from a short crash course on the Washington playbook since he was signed Dec. 17. He almost pulled off an upset last year for Dallas. But Washington has been a lousy play in divisional games (5-13 ATS past 18 tries) and Philly is motivated at home to keep its playoff hopes alive. 

Washington Philadelphia Prediction

This spread should probably be double digits and it might be by kickoff. We see Philadelphia as a safe bet.
