Eagles vs Commanders: Odds, Spread, Preview: NFL Week 3 Predictions

Eagles vs Commanders Week 3 matchup preview and current betting lines

The Philadelphia Eagles will look to continue their dream-like start to the season when they visit Maryland for a divisional clash with the Washington Commanders. Both teams entered the season with aspirations to win their division, but just one of them has looked like a legit threat.

The Commanders followed up their big win in the season opener with a dismal effort vs. the new-look Detroit Lions. Ron Rivera’s defensive expertise is still nowhere to be found, as they’ve struggled against both the run and the pass.

The Eagles, on the other hand, have proven that their near-perfect offseason was no fluke. They’ve looked the part through two weeks, going from a divisional contender to a legit candidate to go the distance and make the Super Bowl.

There’s still a long way ahead of Nick Sirianni’s team. But their defense has been as sharp as their offense and it seems like they’re going to steamroll past the NFC East, especially with Dak Prescott out of commission for the foreseeable future.

Players To Watch

Jalen Hurts: Jalen Hurts entered the season with a big target on his back, but he’s delivered thus far. He’s rushed for three scores and has four total touchdowns through two weeks, looking in control and ready to make big plays with his feet on every snap.

Carson Wentz: You never know what version of Carson Wentz you’re going to get. But he’s set to face the team that drafted him and traded him away, so that’s always something to look out for. He can sure throw the football downfield, but that could either be head-scratching or spectacular; there’s no in-between.

Week 3 Predictions: NFL Bet of the week on Eagles vs Commanders

Eagles -6.5

The opening Eagles vs Commanders spread has the visitors favored by nearly a touchdown, which shouldn’t be a surprise considering what they’ve shown thus far. Even though their defense struggled to contain the Lions in the season opener, they completely shut down Justin Jefferson, Dalvin Cook, and Kirk Cousins in Week 2.

A.J. Brown is playing like a man on a mission, and the Eagles’ running game has been elite. The Commanders were completely outmatched by the Lions, and last week’s game could’ve been a blowout if it wasn’t for a failed comeback attempt in the second half.

Over 47.5

The Eagles vs Commanders odds have this game sitting at 47.5 points total. The Eagles have scored 62 points through two weeks, marching up and down the field with ease, spreading the football, and running efficiently on every drive. They should have no trouble putting up points vs. a Commanders’ defense that has allowed 29 points per game thus far.

The Commanders have also averaged 27.5 points per game, the eighth-best mark in the National Football League, so even if the Eagles blow them out, they’ll still do their part of the job to help this game go way over the projected total.
