The Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings meet Sunday in NFL action at U.S. Bank Stadium.
The Philadelphia Eagles look fo a spark of consistency after splitting their last four games. The Philadelphia Eagles have split their last six road games. Carson Wentz is completing 60.3 percent of his passes for 1,152 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions. Wentz has two or more touchdown passes in 11 of his last 15 games. Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor have combined for 500 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Desean Jackson has eight receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles ground game is averaging 111.8 yards per contest, and Josh Howard leads the way with 248 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Philadelphia is allowing 22.2 points and 334.2 yards per game. Rodney McLeod leads the Philadelphia Eagles with 29 tackles, Brandon Graham has three sacks and Nathan Gerry has two interceptions.
The Minnesota Vikings also need a victory here after splitting their last four games. The Minnesota Vikings have won five of their last six home games. Kirk Cousins is completing 68.3 percent of his passes for 1,041 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. Cousins has two or more touchdown passes in six of his last 14 games. Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have combined for 562 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Dalvin Cook has 21 receptions. The Minnesota Vikings ground game is averaging 166.4 yards per contest, and Cook leads the way with 542 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Minnesota is allowing 14.6 points and 292.4 yards per game. Eric Kendricks leads the Minnesota Vikings with 39 tackles, Danielle Hunter has five sacks and Anthony Harris has two interceptions.
The Eagles are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games in October and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Vikings are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games in October, 38-16-1 ATS in their last 55 home games and 1-7 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Eagles are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings and the underdog is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 10-4 in Vikings last 14 home games. The under is 4-1 in Eagles last 5 road games.
The Philadelphia Eagles have covered seven of their last 10 games as a road underdog. The Minnesota Vikings have covered five of their last six games as a home favorite. The Eagles actually put together back-to-back- winning performances and looked good doing it, but this is a team I'm still questionable about and not sure I trust the way the rest of the betting world does. The Minnesota Vikings have been hit or miss, but they play their best football at home in that hostile environment and five of their last six home wins have been decided by double digits. I'm going to lay the field goal with the Vikings.
