The Philadelphia Eagles kick off their season on the road as they visit the Cleveland Browns at Cleveland Browns Stadium Sunday.
Michael Vick will look to stay healthy and lead the Eagles to a big year in 2012 after a disappointing campaign last year. Philadelphia was an 8-point road favorite at TopBet.
After starting last season off 4-8 straight up and ATS, the Eagles finished last year strong with a 4-0 SU and ATS run.
And they face a Browns team that is a horrible 1-11-1 ATS lifetime in Week 1 of the season.
The Browns were listed as 6.5-point underdogs at Sportsbook.ag but had been bet up to -9 with tons of Philly money. The total was at 41.5.
