It’s been a recurring theme since the Sim Classic for New England, where the Patriots play games and for whatever reason, it doesn’t matter the number, the Patriots don’t cover the number. I know it’s just a simulation and anything can happen, but there’s enough of a sample size here to say take Philly and the points so I’ll do just that and take the Eagles with the points in this one.
