Both teams come into Week 2 at 1-0 – not all that surprising. What was surprising was that the San Francisco game ended up being close and the Eagles dominated the Falcons.
The talk is that this 49ers team should be much better this year with players coming back from injuries that ravaged their 2020 season. On the other side, the Eagles were thought to be a basement dwelling team before the season but showed they can at least handle the Falcons.
San Francisco 49ers
Last year, the 49ers were 7-9 against the spread (ATS) and had a W/L record of 6-10. It was a strange year with COVID and injuries so there’s not much that can be gleaned from the stat, although they were a better 5-3 ATS on the road.
Although San Francisco did not cover the spread last week against the Lions, they were blowing them out before giving up some late TDs to let Detroit back in the game.
The game started out fairly even, with the score at 14-10 late into the 2nd quarter. Within the last 3 minutes of the half the 49ers scored 17 more points, 7 of which came from a bad pick-six TD.
According to Football Insiders’ DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average), the team ranked 11th in the league in 2020. This is a measurement of successful plays considering both total yards and yards towards a first down, with extra “points” awarded for big plays.
There is an offensive and defensive component to the stat. The 49ers were 20th in offense and 6th in defense.
Last year, the Eagles were 6-10 against the spread (ATS) and had a W/L record of 4-11-1. Most of the reason for the poor record was because Wentz was absolutely horrible. There were a lot of Hurts doubters before last week, and Philadelphia is projected to have another bad year.
Hurts showed he can make good decisions with the football and get yards on his feet when there is no pass option. There were some poor throws, but he had a great game overall and looked like one of the best quarterbacks in Week 1 (although against a weak Falcons team).
In 2020, Philadelphia ranked 28th overall in DVOA (28th in offensive, 15th in defensive). Last game, the offense looked even better than the defense, which is promising.
This game will tell us if the Eagles only looked good because they were playing the Falcons, or if they have a chance at having a winning record and competing within the division.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles +3.5
The Eagles are the bet in this matchup. Conference underdogs after a bad season generally cover early in the next season. This trend was 2-0 in Week 1. In addition, Hurts looks good which was the biggest question mark on this Philadelphia team.
