The Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts face off on Sunday in an NFL showdown at Lucas Oil Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2018 it was the Eagles that secured the 20-16 victory.
The Eagles come into this game with an 8-1 record and they have gone 5-4 against the spread. It has been quite the season so far this year for the Eagles, but they are coming off a bad loss in their last game. The Eagles only scored seven points total through the last three quarters against the Commanders and that led to the 11 point defeat. Jalen Hurts completed 17 of his 26 passes for 175 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. A.J. Brown also only caught one pass for seven yards. The Eagles are averaging 27.3 points while their defense is giving up 18.6 points per game. The offense is ranked 3rd in all of football.
On the other side of this matchup is the Colts who sit with a 4-5-1 record overall and they have gone 4-6 against the spread. There have been some big changes over the last few weeks for this team. Jeff Saturday is now the man in charge and Matt Ryan has been moved back to the starting quarterback. In the first game with Saturday in charge, the Colts were able to beat the Las Vegas Raiders 25-20. Matt Ryan completed 21 of his 28 passes for 222 yards and one touchdown. The Colts are averaging 15.7 points while their defense is giving up 20.3 points per game.
The Eagles are 1-4 against the spread in the last five meetings against the Colts. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings played between the Eagles and Colts. The Eagles are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games. The Colts are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games following an against the spread win.
Saturday might have led the Colts to the win last game, but facing the Eagles is a whole lot different than the Raiders. This Colts defense is fine, but not elite, and they are going to struggle to slowdown the Eagles in this game. Look for Philadelphia to run up the score and go over their season average of 27.3 points. This is going to be an easy victory for Philadelphia, and the Eagles will cover the spread.
