PHILADEL­PHIA over Oak­land by 10

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

The Ea­gles nearly pulled off the ‘rally around the new quar­ter­back an­gle’ in their win-no-cover ef­fort at MetLife Sta­dium last week. That would be Nick Foles step­ping in for Car­son Wentz. It’s the sec­ond game that be­comes the true test of backup QBs in this role, though, and with that Foles will put his 7-13 ATS ca­reer mark in games fol­low­ing a win to test this evening. Com­ing to his aid tonight, though, is Philadel­phia head coach Doug Ped­er­son’s 4-0 SUATS record dur­ing the sec­ond-half of the sea­son when the Ea­gles are com­ing off a di­vi­sion game. In ad­di­tion, the Birds are 7-1 ATS as fa­vorites ver­sus AFC foes, as well as 11-2 ATS at home fol­low­ing an away game ver­sus foes off a home game. The other side of the coin finds the Raiders 3-9 SU and 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 Mon­day night games. Worse, Oak­land is 0-11 ATS in 2nd to last road games of the sea­son when fac­ing non-di­vi­sion foes, as well as 4-19 SU away ver­sus the NFC since 2006, in­clud­ing 1-5 ATS fol­low­ing con­sec­u­tive losses. The bot­tom line is it’s eas­ier to rally with Philadel­phia’s 24-8 ATS mark on Mon­day nights when com­ing off a win, in­clud­ing 10-1 ATS the last 11 per­for­mances.
