Week 15 NFL Lines: 49ers vs. Eagles

Sunday NFL Betting – 49ers Won’t Feel Any Brotherly Love

The San Francisco 49ers had their Super Bowl last week when they stopped the Arizona Cardinals from clinched the NFC West on Monday Night Football. Now, on a short week, the 49ers have to travel on the road to the East Coast and find a way to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.


Time: 1:00 ET
Venue: Lincoln Financial Field
49ers vs. Eagles Sunday Football Lines
MoneyLine: 49ers +300 / Eagles -370
Spread: Eagles -7.5
Over/Under: 40.5

Last week, the 49ers took advantage of six Cardinals turnovers and still barely won. Going up against a good Philadelphia Eagles squad is surely going to be a stiffer test.

49ers offense versus Eagles defense

The 49ers aren’t really sure if Alex Smith is their quarterback of the future and they’ll get a clearer indication in a game like this. While Smith still doesn’t have a great offense around him, a lot of parts have emerged this year. Tight end Vernon Davis has been a nice weapon and wideout Michael Crabtree gets better with each game.

Interesting enough, the 49ers offense is more focused on passing the ball these days even though running back Frank Gore is the team’s best weapon. Passing too much against a good Eagles secondary will not be the road to success this week.

The 49ers offense isn’t one-dimensional, but the Eagles will probably make it that way this weekend. They’ll key in on Gore and force Smith to beat them. It’s unlikely that he can, but if he can, then the 49ers might have their answer for next year.

Eagles offense versus 49ers defense

The Eagles offense is very explosive and they shouldn’t have many problems connecting on some big plays this week. The 49ers pass defense is ranked 26th in the NFL, which is fairly disappointing considering they have 34 sacks on the year.

They have given up 40 passing plays of 20 yards or longer, which indicates that there will be plenty of room for the Eagles to strike deep.

The Eagles have a very multifaceted offense and their West Cost, short passing game is going to keep the 49ers defense on the field longer than they would like. Then they’ll strike deep with the big plays.

Outlook & Pick

It’s one thing for the 49ers to dominate at home in front of a national audience but it’s a significantly different task for them to play just as well on the road. This is a warm-weather, West Coast team that is heading to the East Coast for an early start in frigid temperatures. While they looked really good last week, they’ll look equally as bad in a flat performance this week.

Keep in mind that the 49ers are just 1-5 and while they have been competitive in their losses, they’ll be flat in this one off a short week.

Pick: Eagles -9
