It’s early in the week but I can already guarantee you I’m betting on the Philadelphia Eagles rushing attack in Week 12. There hasn’t been an offense running better than the Eagles, and a soft Giants run defense awaits them on Sunday. This is a smash spot with some great NFL prop options.

Let’s break it all down.

Odds are courtesy of BetPrep and are a projection of where they see players’ prop lines opening on sportsbooks.

Recent Dominance From Philly

The Eagles just ran for 242 yards against what was the top run defense in the league by a wide margin, the New Orleans Saints. In their last four games, Philadelphia has rushed for 236, 176, 216, and 242.

Go read those numbers again.

That’s an absolutely unbelievable stretch of games, Philadelphia officially has an offensive identity.

Their success on the ground can far more be attributed to the dominance of their offensive line.

Jason Kelce showcases above the athleticism he still has as one of the best centers in the NFL.

The left side of their line has been equally mauling in the run-game. Don’t expect much to change this weekend, the Eagles run game is going to get moving.

Giants’ Defensive Weaknesses

It helps that the Giants have been so porous against the run this year. The Giants allow 119.2 rushing yards per game, a bottom-ten mark in the league, and give up 4.4 yards per carry.

New York allows the fifth-most rushing yards per game to the RB position and even allowed Tom Brady to get a rush off on them on Monday night. Insert the “cringe face” emoji here.

Best Eagles’ NFL Prop Bets

With the stage set, the biggest point of business now becomes which players to bet on. You may be surprised to know that Jordan Howard has been one of the most efficient backs in football this past month. Howard is expected to miss this game, which makes the backfield a bit more clear.

Miles Sanders returned to the lineup from injury last week and took 16 carries for 94 yards. Quarterback Jalen Hurts has rushed for 55+ yards in five straight games and leads the Eagles in rushing this season.

BetPrep has Sanders’s rushing total currently at 38.5. I don’t expect his line to be anywhere near that. I would bet on Sander’s rushing line up to 72.5 yards. Early projections on Hurts’s BetPrep page put the quarterback at 47.5 rushing yards.

Both players are solid bets on Sunday and well worth a wager.
