The Eagles have been a dream team this season when it comes to wagering on the OVER on total line with an offense that can almost score at will complementing a defense that loves to give points up in bunches. Even when Philadelphia had a 33-7 lead over Washington on opening day, this defense tried to make things interesting but giving-up three late touchdowns to take the final score way OVER the 51.5-point closing line.
In a shootout against San Diego, the offense made the mistake of scoring too fast and too soon. The result was another Chargers' march downfield to set-up the game winning field goal with just seconds left on the clock. This Thursday night the Eagles welcome former head coach Andy Reid and his 2-0 Kansas City Chiefs to the Linc in what should be an intriguing matchup. New head coach Chip Kelly will get a chance to run his high-octane offense against a Chiefs' defense that is currently ranked third in the NFL. I do not have a formal pick for this game, but I would keep riding the OVER on the Birds with the total set at 49.5 points as both teams should be able to put up some points in this one.
The following is a link to my top three picks on the total line for Week 3 in the NFL as originally posted on Doc's Sports. After a clean sweep last week I am now 5-1 on the year and feeling really good about this Sunday's plays.
