Eagles vs. 49ers Sunday Night Football Prediction

 

This Eagles vs. 49ers Sunday Night Football prediction is courtesy of Pregame.com, one of the leading sports handicapping websites.

The San Francisco 49ers host the Philadelphia Eagles tonight on NBC at 8:20 EDT. The Niners are looking for their first win of the season, while the Eagles are getting ready for the Kevin Kolb era again. The Eagles have made news all season long with their quarterbacks, with this week being no exception. Kolb is replacing Vick as the starting QB, because of an injury to Vick. As a result, San Francisco is a 3.5 favorite tonight, with a total of 38 points expected.

San Francisco was expected to challenge the elite teams in the NFL, as they were a sleeper candidate to in the NFC. The 49ers would love to start their season over, as they are a horrendous 0-4 SU so far. San Francisco's latest loss might be their most heartbreaking, as they fell 14-16 SU in Atlanta. Tonight will mark only their 2nd home game of the season, with their first coming in a primetime setting against New Orleans on MNF. The 49ers have scored 14 PTS or fewer in 3 of their 4 games so far this year. Nearly the entire offense of San Francisco has underperformed this season, a big reason for a coaching change involving the Offensive Coordinator. QB Alex Smith has thrown for 920 YDS, with 3 TD's and 7 INT's this year. The supposed vaunted defense of San Francisco was expected to be great too, and they have allowed 25.8 PPG, 6th worst in the NFL. The Niners have their next 2 games at home, and in both situations they will be the listed favorite. The 49ers are 10-1-1 ATS in their last 12 games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game. San Francisco is 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win.

The Niners are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Under is 10-4 in their last 14 games following a SU loss.

Philadelphia is the most publicized 2-2 SU team in NFL history. The QB situation with both Michael Vick and Kevin Kolb, as well as the offseason dismissal of Donovan McNabb have kept the press on this team constantly. Vick was injured in their last game, so Kolb will get the start tonight. The Eagles are only 1-3 ATS this season, as they've been the listed favorite in 3 of their 4 games thus far. Surprisingly enough, Philadelphia is 2-0 SU on the road this year, a trend they hope continues tonight. The Eagles are ranked 11th in the NFL both with their rushing and passing attack this year. Losing Vick will certainly hurt the rushing game for the Eagles, as they are also dealing with an injury to starting RB LeSean McCoy. Defensively, Philadelphia must become better at stopping the run, as they are allowing the 28th most yards in the NFL on the ground at 138.8 YPG. The Eagles are giving up an average of 19.8 PPG this season. The Eagles are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a road underdog between 3.5 and 10 PTS. Philadelphia is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games against a team with a losing home record. The Eagles are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games against the NFC.

The Eagles are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games as a road underdog. The Over is 8-2 in their last 10 games following a SU loss.

The Pregame.com Eagles vs. 49ers Sunday Night Football prediction has the final score 24-20 in favor of the San Francisco 49ers. The Over 38 points is the Total of the Day!  - Johnny Detroit
