PHILADELPHIA EAGLES @ CLEVELAND BROWNS

The 3-5-1 Eagles travel to Ohio to take on the 6-3 Browns, one of these sides top their division and it’s not the side with the winning record!

The Cleveland Browns got Nick Chubb back last week and proceeded to immediately pound the rock with both he and Kareem Hunt having over 100 yards on the ground although the game script relied on the ground game due to weather conditions but it might be a smart play to keep pounding the rock against an Eagles defense that has been below average at stopping the run all year and will also help to slow down their pass rush which has found its target often this year.

The Eagles lost to their NFC East rival Giants last week in a game Carson Wentz failed to throw a TD and their best offensive weapon, similarly to the Browns is a running back, Miles Sanders has been well over the league average 4 YPC in each of his last three games and although he’s been unlucky in the TD department with only three on the season I expect that number to rise and match the performances we’ve seen on the field from him.

Another game where I expect both sides to feed their Running Backs although I expect the Eagles to have to open up their passing game eventually in this one as they chase the Browns but ultimately fall short to a more talented Cleveland side. As for my Best Bet I like the Running Backs to get themselves on the scoresheet today, both Kareem Hunt, who looks a much better player when Nick Chubb is in the side, and Miles Sanders to score anytime are even money and 10/3 to both find the end zone and although neither have scored in their last two games neither have them have gone more than two games without scoring and both garnered 15+ touches last week, a similar workload here makes them value at the price.

PREDICTION: BROWNS 30 – 24 EAGLES          

BEST BET: Kareem Hunt & Miles Sanders both to score a TD – 10/3 with SkyBet. 1 point bet.
