Week 16 Broncos vs Eagles NFL Predictions

NFL Week 16 Game of the Week – Denver Broncos vs. Philadelphia Eagles

NFL Football Betting Odds: PHILADELPHIA -7, Total 41.5

It is conceivable that Denver can clinch a playoff spot this Sunday, if a few things happen. That would be a quite a reward for a roller coaster season, in which Jay Cutler was traded, six straight wins and then four straight losses. They came back with a couple of victories, and now have dropped two straight, one to the undefeated Indianapolis Colts and another to the Oakland Raiders, who staged a last-minute drive down the field to beat Denver at Invesco Field by a point.

So there is redemption on the minds of these players as they travel east, and the Eagles are in a position where they have clinched a playoff spot in the NFC, and can rap up the NFC East title if they win and Dallas loses. They have won five games in a row, covering four of them as far as pro NFL football betting is concerned.

The Eagles are listed as a seven-point favorite, with a posted total of 41.5 points.

Here are some football betting trends as they relate to this matchup:

DEN has lost six of its last eight games SU
DEN has covered two of its last eight games
DEN has played four of its last six games OVER the total
DEN has played four of its last five road games OVER the total
PHIL has covered four of its last five games
PHIL has won its last five games SU
PHIL has played ten of its last 15 games OVER the total
PHIL has covered seven of its last ten home games
PHIL has won five of its last six home games SU Football Picks
PHIL has played six of its last eight home games OVER the total

Brian Westbrook has been through a trying season, suffering two concussions and missing seven games. Westbrook is practicing with the team, however, and say he is ready to get back into action. “He’s not doing the scout-team stuff anymore,” said coach Andy Reid. “He’s back in with the offense and going.” It is likely that rookie LeSean McCoy will get the start, with Westbrook ticketed for spot duty.

Do you mind if we compare the stats of Kyle Orton and Cutler for a moment? Orton is hitting 62% of his passes for 3182 yards, 17 TD’s and eight interceptions. Cutler is at 61% accuracy, but he has thrown for less in terms of the per-attempt average and while he has 19 touchdowns, he has also tossed 25 interceptions. So as regards the impact in the 2009 season at least, Denver got the better part of that deal.

Speaking of impact, it’s kind of hard to describe the impact of wide receiver DeSean Jackson on the Philadelphia offense. Last week he had a 19-yard TD catch and also a 59-yard reception. In nine games this season, he has been on the receiving end of a pass play of 35 yards or more, and has eight TD’s through the air. Donovan McNabb (61%, 19 TD’s, 9 INT’s) will certainly look to him for some distance throws, but that is not going to be easy with Denver’s Brian Dawkins, returning to his Philadelphia stomping grounds, back there to defend.

I actually see Philadelphia having more of a problem matching up with the receivers Orton has at his disposal, like Brandon Marshall and Eddie Royal, not to mention Jabar Gaffney. Elvis Dumervil (15 sacks) will supply the acid test for the shuffled and re-shuffled Eagle offensive line as well.

We’ll grab the points here with Denver, the seven-point underdog.

  1. This is Philly’s last regular home season game and they need a win if they hope to have a few more in the postseason. Denver is turning into the team we thought they were going to be before the season started. The Eagles simply have more playmakers than the Broncos and that will be the difference.
