  • The winless Philadelphia Eagles travel to the Bay Area to take on the 2-1 San Francisco 49ers (8:20pm ET)
  • Last week’s picks went 2-3 and lost 0.61 units
  • Read below to see what player props we like for tonight’s clash

A battle between the two of the NFL’s most injured teams may not look like a great primetime matchup, but at this point, any game that isn’t postponed due to COVID-19 is a must-see.

Philadelphia is desperate for a win coming into this one, but even against a San Francisco team down their starting quarterback, best pass rusher and more, the Eagles vs 49ers odds have the away team as hefty underdogs.

Will either offense thrive under the bright lights? Let’s examine.

Can Pederson Help Out His QB?

Carson Wentz is already hearing calls for his job. The same guy Philly fans were praising last winter for lifting a JV squad to the playoffs isn’t getting the benefit of the doubt with the injuries the Eagles have suffered this season.

Eagles fans’ frustrations are valid: Philly’s offense ranks dead last in passing DVOA through three weeks. Meanwhile, they’ve had success on the ground, ranking 11th in rushing DVOA. Yet, Doug Pederson’s play-calling keeps skewing to the air.

Wentz’s accuracy is an issue: it always has been. But the Eagles passing game has managed to produce in years past because the protection was so strong. That is no longer the case. Even against a 49ers defensive line that is down Nick Bosa, Solomon Thomas and Dee Ford, Philly will be in tough to keep Wentz upright, as struggling tackle Jason Peters has been ruled out for this week.

In an effort to get Wentz back on track (and also keep him alive), this game-plan should feature a ton of hand offs and quick throws to Miles Sanders. The 49ers have only allowed 188 rushing yards to running backs this season, but they haven’t exactly faced the league’s best. Last week, they held newly-signed Devonta Freeman to 10 yards a week after holding old man Frank Gore to 63.

Expect a quality day from Sanders and less work for Wentz.

Pick: 1 unit on Miles Sanders OVER 79.5 rushing and receiving yards (-106); 1 unit on Carson Wentz UNDER 22.5 completions (-113)

Kittle’s Big Return

San Francisco had two great offensive showings without their top receiving option in the lineup, but Kyle Shanahan must be thrilled to have the All-Pro tight end back for this week. The offensive mastermind was turning back-up tight end Jordan Reed into a fantasy star before injuries sidelined him. Now he gets the Lamborghini of the position back for a great matchup.

The Eagles linebacking corps is the weakness of this defense. They’ve already allowed four touchdowns to tight ends this year and they’ll be in tough to slow down Kittle at even 80% of his usual speed.

Nick Mullens connected with George Kittle for three touchdowns during his breakout 2018 season and the two should be able to renew that connection right out of the gate. In terms of wagering, I’m confident Kittle should score at some point. But we’re going to split a unit between the anytime and first TD wager to chase some value.

Pick: 0.5 units on Kittle to score 1st TD (+650); 0.5 units on Kittle to score anytime (+110)
