The Indianapolis Colts will be going for their second win in a row when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles, who are coming off a tough loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The game will be played at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, September 23. It is scheduled to begin at 1:00 PM. ET. In this NFL Week 3 matchup we cover Philadelphia Eagles betting odds.
Indianapolis Colts Betting Odds
The Colts are coming off their first win of the season, an impressive 21-9 win over the Washington Redskins.
Andrew Luck, who missed the entire 2017 season with a shoulder injury, got his first win in over a year, and this time around, he didn’t have to do the heavy lifting for the Colts. Indianapolis’ defense came up big against the Redskins, keeping them out of the end zone the entire game and making them settle for field goals.
Luck finished the game completing 21 of 31 passes for 179 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. Despite the win, Luck will need to do a better job protecting the ball because he was fortunate the defense didn’t allow the Redskins to turn the turnovers into touchdowns.
The Colts also have to work on their running game, after finishing 104 points on 28 carries. If they have a balanced offense on Sunday, they will give themselves a chance to win this game. Stay tuned for the latest Philadelphia Eagles betting picks.
Philadelphia Eagles Betting Odds
The Eagles haven’t looked as good as they did at the start of last season and dropped their first game of the season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27-21.
NFL Week 3 Betting Picks
Nick Foles finished the game completing 35 of 48 passes for 334 yards and one touchdown. However, the Eagles couldn’t get their running game going and finished with 91 yards on 24 carries.
Philadelphia’s defense also didn’t do a good job, especially against the pass. The Eagles allowed Ryan Fitzpatrick to complete 27 of 33 passes for 402 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception.
The good news for Eagles fans this week is that quarterback Carson Wentz is expected back for this game, but with him being out since the end of last season, it will take him some time to get his rhythm back.
If the Eagles defense can keep pressure on Andrew Luck in this game, they should be able to get the win and stay on top of the NFC East standings.
The Eagles are favored to win this game by -6. The over/under on total points scored is 47.5.
The Eagles have more talent than the Colts do and if they can pressure Luck into making mistakes, they should be able to get the win on Sunday. Take the Eagles -6. We hope you enjoyed these Philadelphia Eagles betting predictions.
