Philadelphia was a -9.5 home favorite vs. the visiting San Francisco 49ers.

Michael Vick is expected to start, but the Eagles will be moderately affected as their offense often includes some creative ball-handling by Vick. Vince Young is finally healed from his hamstring injury and will likely be the No. 2 quarterback. The 49ers have dropped five straight, SU and ATS, to Philadelphia, including a 27-24 home loss last October. San Francisco outgained the Eagles in that game, which Vick missed. QB Alex Smith accounted for three of San Francisco’s five turnovers. The Eagles are the superior team, and they should win big in their home stadium.

San Francisco is currently in first place in the NFC West after posting a 13-8 win in Cincinnati last week. Despite the 2-1 record on the season, this offense has been atrocious. The Niners rank dead last in NFL total yardage (213.7 YPG), and star RB Frank Gore (2.5 YPC) has been the main culprit for lagging production. Gore’s status is uncertain after he suffered a sprained right ankle in Sunday’s win. QB Alex Smith hasn’t been a superstar either, with only 504 passing yards and two touchdowns in three games.

Dallas is only a -1 point favorite at home versus the surprise Detroit Lions. 

Not only have the Lions won eight straight games dating back to last season, but they are 14-3-2 ATS (82.4%) since the start of 2010.

Detroit pulled off a stellar comeback last Sunday in Minnesota, as the team erased a 20-0 halftime deficit and prevailed in overtime. This marked the franchise’s largest second-half comeback. The Lions are now 3-0 for the first time since 1980. QB Matthew Stafford is off to a flying start this year. He threw for 378 yards in the victory over the Vikings, giving him 977 yards, 9 TD and just 2 INT in three games this season. WR Calvin Johnson has six of those TD grabs, with two coming in each game. Detroit’s running game has been weak this season, with just 235 yards on 84 carries (2.8 YPC). Top RB Jahvid Best suffered a bruised thigh last Sunday, but should be able to start against Dallas.

Dallas QB Tony Romo wasn’t great in Monday’s 18-16 field-goal fest win over Washington, but still led his team to the victory. Romo, who was questionable because of cracked ribs and a punctured lung, finished 22-of-36 for 255 yards, 0 TD and 1 INT.

Expect Dallas to struggle against Detroit’s suspect secondary and its resurgent passing game.

The longest line of any game is for Monday Night’s showdown in Tampa Bay between the Bucs and Colts where Tampa comes in at -10.

Minnesota is now a -3 favorite at some books playing in Kansas City after that one opened at -1 in favor of the 0-3 Vikings.

The Carolina-Chicago line has only moved up a half point to -6.5 in favor of the Bears.

New Orleans vs. Jacksonville has held a -7 steady line in favor of the Saints all week long.

The Steelers-Texans game has Pittsburgh in a rare position as an underdog of -3.5.

Pittsburgh needed a late fourth-quarter drive to edge 10.5-point underdog Indianapolis by a field goal last week, while Houston blew a nine-point lead in the final quarter and lost to New Orleans 40-33. Pittsburgh’s aging defense will be tested by a very good Houston running game, especially after the Steelers allowed 5.5 yards per rush to Baltimore and 4.6 to a sorry Indianapolis running game. The Texans’ rebuilt secondary sees an elite quarterback for a second straight week. They had early success against Drew Brees on Sunday, but couldn’t contain him in the second half as Brees finished with 370 yards and led four second-half touchdown drives. Ben Roethlisberger is 2-0 with 391 passing yards, 4 TD and 0 INT in two career wins against Houston.
