The Eagles are definitively the best team in the NFC, and have covered this number in three straight games. Their win profile is good – they demolished the Commanders and comfortably beat Jacksonville and Minnesota – and their defense is elite.

Against the 28th ranked Pass Defense by DVOA and the worst in the league by PFF, Jalen Hurts should be able to dice up the Cardinals through the air – and the Eagles third best defense by DVOA should stop the Cardinals plenty.

Why The Cardinals can cover the spread

This is probably a peak in terms of the Eagles’ public standing, and betting against publicly feted teams makes sense. The Eagles have spent all week with people talking about how they’re the best team in the NFC, which has potentially inflated this line.

The Cardinals did seem to find the something in the fourth quarter against the Panthers last week. Their two losses are to the Rams and Chiefs, neither exactly bad losses. If Kyler can extend plays, the Cardinals have a chance.

Reasons to bet the over

The Eagles scored a ton on short fields against the Jaguars, and are leading the league in takeaways. If they can create any short fields, that will help the game hit the total. Additionally, if the Eagles get out to an early lead, the Eagles have conceded points in garbage time before, as Week 1 showed.

The Cardinals offense has been running below expectation so far this season – they have more talent than 22nd in the league per DVOA. If they can find some positive regression, that would go a long way to hitting the total.

Reasons to bet the under

The Eagles have the 3rd best defense by DVOA and the 2nd by PFF. They’re dominating teams, with two of the last three opponents scoring under 10 points. The idea the Cardinals will play better offensively in time makes sense, but against this defense, it’s a hell of an ask.

On the other side, the Eagles offense has been efficient but not dominant – they’ve only scored 30 once this season. If they can run the ball well, the game will have less plays, making an under much more likely.

Eagles vs. Cardinals Props: Matchups To Watch For

Kyler Murray Rushing Yards: O/U / ()

If the Cardinals are going to have a chance in this game, Kyler is going to need to rush. He will have to salvage some number of plays where the Eagles pass rush gets in his face fast, and whether he can turn those presumptive sacks into positive rushes will be key.

AJ Brown Receiving Yards: O/U / ()

Brown has gone over this number in three of four games and the last two – and the Cardinals secondary is rather putrid. Assuming Hurts wants to keep going back to what’s worked – and there’s no reason to think he won’t – then this number should be on the low side.

Final Thoughts

The Eagles deserve the hype they’ve been getting. A line stuck in limbo might move between 4.5 and 5.5 between now and gametime, but it probably won’t flirt with a 6 again.

The Cardinals being bet down from 6 point underdogs to 5 makes sense – fading publicly loved teams coming off a winning streak makes sense. That said, the Cardinals have done nothing except beat a Matt Rhule lead team to inspire confidence.

Kyler is going to be under extreme duress from the Eagles best in the league pressure rate, and the Eagles get that while blitzing less than league average. Without time, Kyler either takes sacks or makes bad decisions – both of which work for the Eagles.

Jalen Hurts has managed to be the better Quarterback so far this season, and the Eagles have a definite coaching edge – mostly by not having Kliff Kingsbury. The Cardinals could easily struggle to score enough against the Eagles defence to stay in the game.

The Eagles will presumably falter soon, but the Cardinals don’t look like a likely opponent to do it.
