San Francisco heads east to Philly with a trip to Super Bowl LVII on the line. The Eagles are a 2.5-point favorite over the Niners at the time of this writing. The total is currently sitting at 46.5 points.
These 2 teams have fantastic defenses. Philly has one of the best pass defenses in the league, while San Fran is nearly impossible to run on. It'll be interesting to see which team's offense can find a way to generate points.

The Niners are coming off a complete victory over the Cowboys last week. It wasn’t flashy in the least, no one went crazy on their offense, but they all contributed.
Elijah Mitchell and McCaffery combined for 24 carries and 86 yards with 1 score. Kittle and Deebo combined for 9 receptions and 140 yards but no scores.
The defense was spectacular, forcing 2 Dak interceptions, holding the Boys to just 76 yards on the ground and 5 of 15 on 3rd down. While they only sacked Dak once, they put a ton of pressure on him almost every time he dropped back.
The Eagles had the most impressive performance last week as they decimated the Giants 38-7. Hurts, along with the trio of Gainwell, Sanders, and Scott, combined for 268 yards on the ground and 3 touchdowns.
While AJ Brown was a bit quiet, Goedert and Smith combined for 11 receptions, 119 yards, and 2 scores. The defense held the Giants to 227 total yards, 5 of 13 on 3rd down, and sacked Daniel Jones 5 times.
Brock Purdy has been exceptional since he stepped in for Jimmy G but has yet to face a defense as good as this Eagles group. The Niners' defense is arguably better, but the Eagles have too many offensive weapons to offset them.
If Hurts is able to stay on his feet and remain uninjured, we expect the Eagles to win this one rather comfortably. Purdy will likely look like a true rookie for the 1st time this season against the pressure the Eagles and the fans at the Linc will provide. We'll lay the small number!
Key Betting Trends for San Francisco at Philadelphia:
As great as the stars on both offenses can be, the ability of both defenses to control games all season leads us to believe the under is the right side of the total in this one.
The only way we see this game going over is if we see 2 defensive/special teams scores. While that is certainly possible, we know that that scenario is a complete stretch.
Whichever team has the lead in the 3rd quarter, we believe they will shut things down and try to drain the clock as much as possible. The Under is the only way to play this total.
