The Philadelphia Eagles have a huge task on their hands as they face the Denver Broncos today at Sports Authority Field in Denver. The Eagles are 10.5-point underdogs on lines at Bovada, topbet, betonline and sportsbook.com.
The point total is fairly high at 57, but not surprising with the amount of points the Broncos have been scoring and the up-tempo offense that new Philadelphia head coach Chip Kelly has installed.
The Eagles are 1-2 SU and ATS, while the Broncos are 3-0 SU and 2-0-1 ATS. Manning has 12 touchdown passes this season without a single interception.
His 12 TD passes are the most in NFL history through three games. Even though Denver has a short week, they are still laying double figures.
The point spread has been quite firm all week, but the point total being high has attracted a number of UNDER bettors. Numbers, at the opening, were up at 59.5, but have been bet down to the current 57.
Remember live odds are also available on books such as topbet and betonline amongst others.
The Eagles are 1-5 ATS over their past six games overall and over their past nine games played in September are 1-7-1 ATS.

The Eagles offense under Kelly has helped to rejuvenate the play of quarterback Michael Vick. Impressive numbers by the Eagles rushers and receivers are being put on the board, but the defense is letting them down. The defense is No. 30 in total yards allowed and No. 26 in points allowed.
What more can be said about Manning? He did complete 32 of his 37 passes last week against Oakland. Four of his five incompletions were dropped passes. His play has been phenomenal.
Pick: Broncos in a high scoring game 42-28
