Bet on the NFLThe San Francisco 49ers have struggled with a great deal of second half woes and have only one win so far this season. The Philadelphia Eagles are on the opposite end of the NFL spectrum as they are one of three teams left with an undefeated record. The two teams will meet at Santa Clara's Levi's Stadium on Sunday.
The Eagles had a five-game winning streak against the 49ers but it was snapped in the last matchup between the two. The 49ers won their last game with them 24-23 back in October 2011. The over has been taken in seven of their last eight games including each of the last four in San Francisco.
The second half failures of the 49ers have cost them games in the last two weeks. They lost their last two games including a 23-14 loss last week to the Arizona Cardinals. The 49ers were -3 favorites in that game. In addition, the team has only gone over the point total in two of their last ten games. They have taken the under in five of their last six NFC games. Tight end Vernon Davis is listed as questionable due to an ankle injury.
The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Washington Redskins 37-34 last week and were unable to get past the -4 spread for the game. They had won their prior two games ATS before that win. They have also taken the over on their last four September games. It is uncertain as to whether or not wide receiver Josh Huff is going to play for the Eagles this week as he is still listed as questionable. He has not played yet this season due to a shoulder injury.
The San Francisco 49ers are favored to win this game in spite of the differences in the records between the two teams. The Niners are -4.5 favorites to win a game with a 50.5 over/under total. The game has a -235 moneyline for the 49ers with a +195 line for the Eagles to get a straight up win.
