Donovan McNabb

Donovan McNabb is likely to start in Monday’s NFC East showdown against his former team. McNabb was benched in the fourth quarter of last game against Detroit, and has been bothered by hamstring injuries, but he says he’s ready to go. Mike Vick is also ready to play again for the Eagles. Vick was knocked out of the Week 4 meeting between these two teams, which was won by Washington 17-12.

Sportsbook.com Eagles vs. Redskins Betting Odds: Philadelphia -3.5, Total: 43

The NFL betting public at Sportsbook.com seems to have more faith in Vick and the Birds tonight as 79 percent of the Eagles vs. Redskins point spread bettors are backing Philly -3.5 points.

Vick, who appears to be fully recovered from that rib injury, leads the NFL with a 105.3 quarterback rating. He has thrown for 1,017 yards with seven touchdowns and no interceptions. Vick has also rushed for 261 yards (7.3 YPC) and two more scores. The Eagles rank fifth in the NFL in rushing with 138 YPG. LeSean McCoy (572 yards, 4.7 YPC, 5 TD) is the top rusher on the team, but he was also a threat catching passes out of the backfield in the Week 4 meeting with Washington. McCoy caught 12 passes for 110 yards that game in addition to his 64 rushing yards.

McNabb had a terrible game against Philly in Week 4. He completed just 8-of-19 passes for 125 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He was 2-for-11 for 10 yards in the second half. Luckily for McNabb, his running game bailed him out. The Redskins rushed for a season-high 169 yards in that contest. Ryan Torain had 70 of those yards, but he might be limited Monday night because of a nagging hamstring injury. RB Clinton Portis will miss his fifth straight game with a groin injury, so Washington would love to give Torain 25-plus touches.

The Eagles are 11-6-1 ATS when playing at Washington since 1992 and this football betting trend found at Sportsbook.com indicates the Eagles will once again cover the point spread.

Andy Reid is 10-0 ATS (+10.0 Units) vs. poor passing defenses - allowing 235 or more passing yards/game in the second half of the season as the coach of PHILADELPHIA. The average score was PHILADELPHIA 30.7, OPPONENT 15.3 - (Rating = 5*).

Twelve of the past 17 meetings in Washington have gone Under the Total and these two NFL trends also predict the score will finish Under the Total once again.

 

Play Under - Any team where the total is between 42.5 and 49 points (WASHINGTON) - after allowing 30 points or more last game against opponent after 2 straight games
