Eagles vs. Texans SGP Picks

  • Houston Texans Over 13.5 Points Scored (-140)
  • Miles Sanders (PHI) Over 74.5 Rushing Yards (-135)
  • A.J. Brown (PHI) Over 64.5 Receiving Yards (-145)

Payout: +400

The Texans are off to an underwhelming start under new head coach Lovie Smith, as Houston scored just 16.6 PPG and allowed 22 PPG across a 1-5-1 skid to open the season, which includes a tie-win combo in matchups against the Colts and Jaguars, plus a handful of ugly losses by a nine-point average margin of defeat.

I’ll back Houston to score 14+ PTS here, as the Texans’ offense hasn’t exactly been anything to write home about, but they still scored 20+ PTS in four of their first seven contests, and I think we’ll see them find a decent amount of success against an Eagles defense squad that surrendered 20 PPG across their first three road matchups of the year.

Eagles’ RB Miles Sanders has juggled a handful of injuries since his excellent rookie campaign back in 2019, however, the first eight weeks of this season have easily been the most consistent of his young career, especially in the rushing department, as Sanders carried that ball 15+ times for 70+ yards in five-of-seven contests to open, despite punching in touchdowns in just three of those affairs.

I’ll back Sanders to have another solid night on the ground here, as Sanders averaged a career-best 80.4 rushing yards on 16.3 carries per game across the Eagles’ perfect 7-0 start to the season, and I expect that trend to continue against a Texans defensive front that ranks dead-last in rushing yardage at 186 YPG and 31st in yards allowed per carry at 5.5 YPC.

The Eagles lacked a bonafide number-one receiver for several years prior to this season, however, it appears they’ve finally found a superstar in former Titans wideout A.J. Brown, highlighted by Brown hauling in five or more passes for 65+ receiving yards in six of his first seven outings with Philly, which already includes a pair of performances north of 150 yards.

I’ll back Brown to keep it going here, as he averaged a career-best 94.1 receiving yards on 5.6 receptions across the first eight weeks of the season, and we’ll probably see that trend continue against a Houston secondary that currently ranks 21st in yards allowed per pass attempt at 6.9 YPA.
