How’s this for a juicy prop bet in tonight’s Eagles Vikes game at the Linc:
Jalen Hurts OVER 19.5 completions (-133)
Hurts connected on 18 of 32 passes last week in Detroit, and that was after a sloppy start that featured five straight incompletions.
Hurts rushed 17 times for 90 yards and a score. He’ll probably run the ball a few less times tonight, and connecting on two more passes than last week feels likely.
Hurts hit the 20 completions mark just five times during the regular season last year and also did so in the playoff loss in Tampa. But A.J. Brown is in town, and this Eagles offense looks like it has the potential to be explosive at times.
