Eagles vs. Texans picks and predictions

We’d all be better off watching the World Series

The last two Thursday Night Football games have been exciting. This one won’t be. The Philadelphia Eagles are really good. The Houston Texans really aren’t. That has the recipe for a 34-6 Eagles win. Should be thrilling!

Our friend Allan Bell had an interesting tweet this morning:

The Eagles are a 13.5-point favorite in this game over at DraftKings Sportsbook. Taking the Eagles moneyline is easy. I also like them to cover the spread here. The over/under was probably where I struggled the most. It’s set at 45.5. Philadelphia could hit that on their own, but they probably won’t be forced to score in the 2nd half. The Texans are bad on offense with Brandin Cooks. Tonight they won’t have Cooks. Yeesh!

On the bright side, maybe they will release Cooks this week and he will sign with the Tennessee Titans!
