Patriots Prevailing in Tilts With Eagles

New England Patriots Tom Brady

The Philadelphia Eagles have had a number of low points in the 2015 NFL campaign but a season’s worth of frustration reached a boiling point on Thanksgiving Day. The Eagles got blown out by the Detroit Lions 45-14 after getting hammered 45-17 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the week before. It may be too late to salvage the year, but Chip Kelly and company will try and right the ship in Week 13 at Gillette Stadium when they take on the New England Patriots.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in nine of the Patriots' last 11 games at home in December.
  • The Eagles are 0-4 SU in their last four games against the Patriots.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Eagles' last nine games after consecutive losses.

The Pats, who suffered their first loss of the season after falling in overtime to the Denver Broncos in Week 12, are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games after dropping their previous contest.

Trend seekers will be happy to know the Eagles are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against the Pats when labeled as underdogs. If Philadelphia can manage a win or even just a cover, however, they’re going to need a much better effort compared to what we’ve seen in the past few weeks.
