Vikings vs. Eagles SGP Picks

  • Philadelphia Eagles ML (-140)
  • A.J. Brown (PHI) Over 6.5 Receptions (OU 5.5)

Payout: +380

Philly almost dropped an ugly one in Week 1, as the Eagles jumped out to an enormous 31-14 lead with 10:21 left in the third quarter against the Lions, however, the kings of garbage time struck again, as Detroit outscored them 21-7 the rest of the way lost by just three points (L, 38-35). The Birds’ offense posted an impressive 38-point performance last week, but the main takeaways surround their defensive struggles, as Philly surrendered 35 PTS on 386 total yards to a Lions’ offense that ranked 25th in scoring last season (19.1 PPG).

Minnesota, on the other hand, ran Green Bay out of the building in Week 1, as Kirk Cousins and co. racked up 23 PTS on 395 total yards en route to a blowout victory over the Packers (23-7), which was a matchup the Vikings were two-point underdogs in.

I’ll take Philly moneyline here, as the Vikings and Packers have always gone back-and-forth with each other throughout the years, so I wasn’t overly impressed by Minnesota’s 23-point offensive showing against Green Bay in Week 1; and while the Eagles’ 38-point performance against Detroit also wasn’t overly impressive, I still think there’s more to like about Jalen Hurts and co. heading into their first home matchup of the year on Monday night.

A.J. Brown was phenomenal in his Eagles’ debut last week, as the former Titans’ wideout hauled in 10-of-13 targets for 155 yards in his first contest with Philly, only falling short of Anquan Boldin (208 YDS) and Randy Moss (183 YDS) for the most receiving yards in a player’s debut with a new team immediately following a trade. Last week’s target share was probably a bit of an outlier (45%), however, with Devonta Smith and Dallas Goedert only getting four targets apiece directly behind him in the pecking order, over 6.5 receptions at +165 feels like a gift, and 8.5 receptions at +550 might even be worth a sprinkle.
