Eagles game props
AJ Brown +130 anytime touchdown
Derrick Henry -130 anytime touchdown
Jake Elliott over for field goals
What is the line telling you: With the Titans coming to town, you know the Eagles will be targeting A.J. Brown inside the red zone. It’s why we like Brown plus-130 anytime touchdown. The Eagles have struggled stopping the run over the last three weeks against the Commanders, Colts, Packers and now have to try and stop Derrick Henry. It’s why we like Henry minus-130 anytime touchdown. With the Titans ranking second in opponent yards per rush attempt and seventh in opponent red zone defense, the Eagles could be kicking more field goals than usual this week. It’s why we like Jake Elliott over for field goals.
