Philly Props: Can Hurts Help the Eagles Snap Their Home Losing Streak?

Written By Nathan Frederick on November 19, 2021

Home field hasn’t been much of an advantage. The Philadelphia Eagles have lost five straight games at Lincoln Financial Field.

But another opportunity arrives this weekend, with the New Orleans Saints visiting on Sunday at 1 p.m.

And the Eagles are favored to win the game (updated odds below).

PA sports betting apps have a wealth of wagers and Eagles prop bets loaded up for the game to get you into the action.

And we’ll highlight the most interesting ones to get you ready for Week 11 of NFL betting in PA.

Best Eagles vs. Saints odds in PA

Can the Saints top rush defense stifle the Eagles?

As noted in DraftKings Sportsbook‘s stats section, New Orleans has the top-rated run defense in the entire league. That could pose a problem for the Eagles, who rely heavily on the run game, and especially the rushing yardage provided by quarterback Jalen Hurts. However, the Saints pass defense is less fearsome. New Orleans ranks 26th in the NFL in pass defense.

Hurts has a passing yardage over/under set at 204.5, with both sides are priced at -115. Here are some other numbers:

Jalen Hurts Passing TDs

(via DraftKings Sportsbook)

  • Over 1.5: +130
  • Under 1.5: -170

The rushing stats are as follows:

Jalen Hurts Rushing Totals

(via DraftKings Sportsbook)

  • Over 47.5: -115
  • Under 47.5: -115

FOX Bet also has some Bet Boosts available related to Hurts’ performance. Those include:

  • Jalen Hurts 50+ Rushing Yards and to score a rushing TD: +300
  • Jalen Hurts 200+ Passing Yards and 50+ Rushing Yards: +300

Will DeVonta Smith catch a touchdown?

Smith, the Eagles rookie receiver, had two receiving touchdowns last week against Denver, along with 66 yards receiving. This Sunday, Smith’s receiving yardage total is set at 57.5. Each side is -115.

Smith’s other receiving totals are below.

DeVonta Smith Receptions

(via DraftKings Sportsbook)

  • Over 4.5: +125
  • Under 4.5: -165

DeVonta Smith Longest Reception

(via DraftKings Sportsbook)

  • Over 23.5: -115
  • Under 23.5: -115

Can the Eagles’ offense produce again?

Last week, Philadelphia exploded for 30 points, a number they’ve hit three times this season. On Sunday, the team’s point total is set at 22.5, with each side priced at -115.

The Saints will be led by backup quarterback Trevor Siemian with starter Jameis Winston out for the season with an injury. New Orleans’ team total on Sunday is as follows:

  • Saints: Over 20.5 (-115)
  • Saints: Under 20.5 (-115)

Touchdown scoring props can raise your return

FOX Bet has pricing posted on the game’s touchdown scorers. Those wagers typically offer enhanced returns, especially if you’re willing to take on the extra risk of the first or last touchdown scorer wager. Here is a sampling of some odds on the Eagles.

First touchdown

  • Jordan Howard: +875
  • Jalen Hurts: +875
  • DeVonta Smith: +1050

Anytime touchdown

  • Jordan Howard: +180
  • Jalen Hurts: +185
  • DeVonta Smith: +190

Last touchdown

  • Jordan Howard: +900
  • Jalen Hurts: +950
  • DeVonta Smith: +950

After a road win in Denver, the Eagles enter Sunday’s game in desperate need of a home victory. Oddsmakers believe the matchup will swing in their favor.

Maybe Lincoln Financial Field will finally give the home team an advantage.

Or maybe the losing streak will continue.

But with a wager in play, you can win even if the home team doesn’t.
