Player Prop Best Bets for Eagles at Seahawks

Entering Thanksgiving Week, the Eagles sat atop the NFC with one loss, while the Seahawks held a playoff spot in the conference with a 6-4 record. We hope they took a picture because that was before both teams entered a brutal part of the schedule that’s changed their outlooks since.

Philadelphia escaped Week 12 with an overtime win against Buffalo at home but has dropped two in a row to San Francisco and Dallas by a combined 43 points, leaving them behind the Cowboys in the division and in the fifth seed in the NFC.

Seattle has lost all three games since then and has four straight losses heading into this week. They’ve fallen to the ninth spot in the NFC playoff picture and are smack in the middle of a five-way tie that includes #7 Green Bay and extends to 11th-seeded New Orleans.

Both these teams could use a breather but don’t have that luxury. The Eagles are three-point favorites away from home and have a strong ATS record as a road favorite in 2023 (3-1-1). The Seahawks have only been home dogs once this season and got smacked by NFC West-leading 49ers 31-13 to miss the cover by 11 points.

Last week’s Monday Night Football duo of games ended in winning fashion for our prop card after a sweep the week prior, putting us on a 5-1 run and extending a profitable streak since Week 7 that includes 14 wins to six losses. Saquon Barkley had a big night during the Giants’ upset victory against the Packers, and Jaylen Waddle hit his over as Tyreek Hill was sidelined for a portion of Miami’s surprising loss to Tennessee. Our loss on the day came as Tyjae Spears racked up over 100 yards of offense to blow our under bet out of the water.

It would be great to ride this hot stretch right through the end of the regular season, and our handicaps for this week’s prop card are detailed next.

DeVonta Smith- Over 4.5 Receptions

Best odds: -138 at FanDuel Sportsbook
  • Smith is averaging 9.8 receptions per game in his last four contests and has seen eight or more looks in four straight.
  • The Eagles’ #2 receiver averages 12.1 yards per target and 9.8 yards before the catch on receptions through 13 games. The shorter routes give Hurts more access to connect with Smith, as opposed to AJ Brown, who relies more on big plays.
  • Smith is frequently used as the underneath or sideline receiver by Hurts. He’s racked up 20 first-down conversions in the last four weeks, representing 50% of the 40 times he’s moved the sticks this season.

Kenneth Walker - Under 47.5 Rushing Yards

Best odds: -110 at Bet365 Sportsbook
  • Walker is still ramping back up to a full workload after missing two games due to an oblique injury. He gained 21 yards on eight carries in his return (2.6 ypc), compared to Zach Charbonnet’s 4.9-yard average on one more attempt.
  • Charbonnet began to establish a presence in the Seahawks’ backfield in Walker’s absence, getting 33 carries and scoring the first touchdown of his career despite a less-than-stellar rushing average (3.2 ypc).
  • With or without Walker, the Seahawks have only managed 74.5 rushing yards per game as a team in the last four weeks during their losing skid.
