NFL O/U Game of the Week
October 16th 2009 - Special K
Philadelphia Eagles at Oakland Raiders (OVER 40.5 points)
The Over/Under play is now 1-1 on the season. Last weekend, we lost the O/U by a
single point! It was a tough one to swallow watching the Texans futile attempt
at the one yard line not to mention their blocked field goal and a Cardinals
fumble lost at the 2 yard line. That was 17 points left off the board.
Anyways, it is time to move on and this week I find it hard to imagine that the Eagles
won't be capable of putting up 30+ points against the lowly Raiders by half time.
Unlike, the East Coast games being played this weekend, weather conditions
should be perfect in Oakland. 40+ points alone for the Eagles may
not even be out of the question. If the Eagles do only score 30+ points, that means we
may need the Raiders to
actually score around 7 to 10 points in this game. Yikes, that is asking a lot of
a team that has only produced 16 total points in the last 3 weeks.
If the points don't come from the Raiders offense, surely the Eagles defense and
special teams will pick up the slack for us. The Eagles pressure and blitz a QB more
than any other team in the NFL. I expect to see a couple turnovers out of
Russell resulting in either defensive points or great field position for the
O/U will really come down to the Eagles offense not turning the ball over to the
Raiders when they get red zone opportunities.
Expect the boo-birds to be out in full force and I predict that this is the game
that Russell gets benched and replaced by Gradkowski who might provide a little
spark to the Raiders dreadful offense.

And if you like trends in your favor: The Eagles are a perfect 4-0 this
season in covering the Over.
