When using the Eagles vs. 49ers odds table above, click the dropdown menu and select the type of bet you wish to make. 

Betting the point spread is when you wager on how many points a team will win or lose by. A plus sign in front of the spread denotes the underdog, and a minus sign denotes the favorite.

In this case, the Eagles would have to win by at least three points if you bet them to cover the point spread (-2.5). A spread bet on the 49ers would win if they win the game or lose by fewer than three.

Betting the moneyline is simply betting on which particular team will win a game.

The betting total is the number of combined points the two teams will score. Bettors can choose to bet the over or under on how many total points will be scored in the game.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Marcus Mariota has signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. Mariota’s deal is for one year and worth $5 million, with potential bonuses of up to $8 million.

Mariota played 13 games for the Falcons in 2022, throwing for 2,219 yards, 15 TD, and 9 INT. He was replaced by rookie Desmond Ridder at the end of the season and ultimately let go. The former Falcon is expected to become the backup quarterback to Jalen Hurts.

The Eagles agreed to terms with free agent Rashaad Penny and veteran Boston Scott, according to league sources. Penny agreed to a one-year deal with a $1.35 million base salary, $600,000 guaranteed, and a max value of $2.1 million, while Scott will make roughly $2 million on a one-year contract, according to NFL Network.

Penny has shown flashes of elite upside, albeit in short spurts, with two significant injuries. In the 2022 season, Penny played five games before suffering a season-ending leg injury, logging 57 carries for 346 yards and two touchdowns.

The line flips once again. After scoring a go-ahead TD, the Chiefs stop the Eagles for the second time in the Super Bowl and get a huge punt return from Kadarius Toney. Mahomes & Co. set up shop inside the Eagles' 10 yard line. The line flipped from KC +1.5 (-145) to -4.5 (-115).

Toney's 65-yard return is the longest in Super Bowl history.

Stop us if you've heard this one: Jalen Hurts converts a QB sneak on 4th & short to move the sticks. It's their second fourth-down conversion, fourth successful QB sneak conversion, and third time moving the chains on 4th down (penalty).

A huge throw and catch to Dallas Goedert moved the chains on 3rd & 9. The Eagles are driving in Chiefs territory up 24-21.

Nobody can keep their footing, from pass rushers to receivers, thanks to slippery grass conditions at State Farm Stadium. Could the turf conditions be the deciding factor in the game?

  • Eagles 6/10 on third down, 1/1 on fourth down (Chiefs 0/3 on third)
  • Eagles lead time of possession 21:54-8:06
  • 8 of KC's 14 points came on defense or special teams (one TD, two point afters)

49ers At Eagles Betting Insights

Why The 49ers Can Cover The Spread

The biggest question mark in this game is still the lingering sense that Jalen Hurts may not be 100% right after hurting his shoulder. He said as much in a recent quote, and his numbers back that up. In his two games since returning (both against the Giants), Hurts has had right around 6.5 YPA passing, a marked step down from the 8 he posted for the full season. If he can’t operate at his best, this could be not only a 49ers cover, but an easy win.

Why The Eagles Can Cover The Spread

On the other hand, the 49ers have QB questions of their own. While Brock Purdy continues to tally in the win column, he had a rather shaky performance against the Cowboys, perhaps the first game in which he saw a quality defense. The Cowboys dropped several potential interceptions in that one and Purdy struggled in the red zone. Philly has a fierce pass rush, and Purdy must play on the road for the first time in the playoffs. This is a difficult situation for any QB, never mind a seventh-round rookie.

Reasons To Bet The Over

Both of these defenses may be a bit overrated by the numbers. Sure, the 49ers have been dominant against teams with poor passing attacks or offensive lines, but competent offenses have moved the ball. They faced three strong passing offenses — Chargers, Chiefs and Dolphins — and only the Chargers struggled, and they had both of their top WRs out. The Eagles have also faced a pretty weak schedule, inflating their defensive numbers.

Reasons To Bet The Under

Both teams love to run the ball, a sure recipe for keeping the clock moving. Both rank in the top seven in rushing play rate, which is sure to contribute to the under even if they’re moving the ball. If the 49ers in particular can grind out first downs, this under will likely come home, since they have the better matchup in terms of the Eagles defense’s ability to stop the run. And neither QB really instills a ton of confidence at this point, considering the level of the opposition.

49ers At Eagles Matchups To Watch For

Eagles WRs Vs. 49ers CBs

The weak point on the 49ers defense is undoubtedly their cornerback play. Charvarius Ward has been a solid pickup since coming over from KC, but an injury to Emmanuel Moseley has left Deommodore Lenoir starting opposite him. He’s a weak point. The 49ers don’t generally have Ward play shadow coverage, so whoever draws Lenoir could have a big game. The slot coverage also hasn’t been great, so look for some likely modest markets numbers on guys like Quez Watkins.

Jalen Hurts Vs. San Francisco Rush Defense

San Francisco has been great all season against the run, but even some teams that fit that mold can struggle when opponents change the math by using a QB rushing package. However, the Niners have been pretty good containing QB runs and scrambles for the most part, only getting really hurt when Marcus Mariota went for 50 yards and a TD on 8.3 YPA in an early season loss. Their tackling is usually elite. If the Niners turn Hurts into more of a pocket passer, they could create a large edge for themselves on that side of the ball.

Christian McCaffrey Vs. Eagles Defense

Usually, it’s hard for RBs to move the needle as much as players at other positions, but this spot looks like a potential exception. The Eagles run defense has been had at times, albeit mostly early in the year. Additionally, they have struggled a bit to contain pass-catching backs, ranking 24th in DVOA in that spot. That means McCaffrey could be in line for a big day, but there’s also an injury to consider here. He got banged up with a calf injury and the team used him judiciously down the stretch against the Cowboys.

Final Thoughts

It’s difficult to have confidence in either QB in this spot. Brock Purdy hasn’t shown he can reliably beat decent defenses, and Jalen Hurts doesn’t look quite the same since returning from injury. He’ll have to make some more plays as it seems unlikely they can steamroll the 49ers on the ground like they did the Giants. That makes an under look in this game intriguing, especially with both teams preferring to run the ball.

Bravo to anyone who was able to get Eagles at plus either in look-aheads or very early in the opening markets. With arguably a better coach and QB, as well as home-field advantage, this looks like a solid spot for them under field goal favorites. The market appears to be trending toward Eagles -3 early in the week, with -2.5s getting heavy price tags. That means it likely behooves 49ers backers to wait to see if +3 pops, although such a number may not last long.

Best of luck betting on Eagles vs. 49ers odds.
