San Francisco is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite while the over is 9-3-1 in their last 13 games against the NFC.
The Eagles have just been struggling out of the gate, and a tie with the Bengals doesn’t really do them any good either and I don’t want to hear the “well it’s better than a loss,” because it really isn’t because it’s not a win and the Eagles are still winless. I’d be more apt to giving the Eagles a shot here, but the 49ers are getting healthy, with George Kittle coming back and Jerick McKinnon is starting to play up to the $30-million contract he signed before. The 39res beat up on the bad teams even when they were banged up and in primetime, I see the result being no different for Philadelphia. I’ll lay the points with the 49ers here.
