This week, there are two episodes of Tuesday Night Football for us to make our NFL picks from. However, in this article, we’ll focus on the matchup featuring the Washington Football Team at Philadelphia Eagles. There’s a lot riding on this game as both teams are looking to grab that final spot in the NFC Playoffs.
Here, I will provide the top Tuesday Night Football picks, odds, and lines for the Football Team at Eagles matchup tonight.
Tuesday Night Football Picks – Football Team at Eagles
Washington Football Team +6.5 (-110)
There aren’t a lot of people giving the Football Team a chance in this game, and I feel like that is an egregious error. After all, Washington did have a four-game losing streak before finally falling to Dallas last week at home.
The two teams have yet to meet this season, but Washington did win each of the two meetings in 2020. I think one thing that hurts (pun intended) the Eagles tonight… is Jalen Hurts. He has been a bit of a wonky quarterback in recent games, not really looking like a traditional signal-caller. Gardner Minshew took over last week, and the offense certainly looked a lot happier. It’ll certainly be interesting to see how the Eagles respond with Hurts back under center.
Under 42.5 Points (-110)
As I just mentioned, there should be some clunky behavior out of the Eagles’ offense tonight. Even when Philly was winning ball games with Hurts, it opted to run the football and absolutely kill the clock in the process.
On the other side, Washington’s offense certainly isn’t lighting the world on fire. The offense will look to Antonio Gibson for a huge workload tonight with JD McKissic out once again. Gibson is a solid running back, but he is not as much of a big-play threat as McKissic is. Ultimately, I feel like this will be a slow-moving divisional slugfest that we see tonight.
Antonio Gibson – Over ___ Total Yards (-110)
If you read this article often, you can tell that the one outcome usually leads to the other – and here we are now at Gibson. The season-long numbers aren’t all that impressive for Gibson, who has only rushed for 100+ yards once in a game this season. Although, he has rushed for 85+ yards four different times, with three of those coming over the last four games.
There isn’t much competition for Gibson to get substituted for either, especially with the absence of McKissic. Of course, that’s why we’re seeing Gibson get more work in the passing game, where he has seen a total of 15 targets in the last three games.
