Indianapolis Colts vs Philadelphia Eagles best bets, odds for Week 11 matchup
(Takes extended drag of a cigarette) So … you wanna bet the Indianapolis Colts in Jeff Saturday’s second game against a Philadelphia Eagles team coming off their lone embarrassing blemish of the season so far against Washington? … Alright! Let’s do this.
Indy certainly has a better shot to continue the Eagles’ misery with Matt Ryan’s veteran moxie under center than they would’ve if Sam Ehlinger were still calling the shots. Saturday’s postgame speech and outsider mentality played well in media circles after last weekend’s win, but Ryan’s return was the real catalyst for a better-than-expected offensive showing.
Things will be much tougher this week than they were when Ryan and Co teamed up to help end Josh McDaniels’ head coaching career — just kidding, the cash-poor Raiders have no intention of paying another fired coach. Oof!
It’s going to take plenty of weirdness for Indianapolis to upset Philly. Unfortunately, betting on weirdness will likely steal money from your pockets. Best to stay safe this weekend while rooting for the home team.
Best Indianapolis Colts bets for Week 11 vs. the Eagles
**All numbers are from BetMGM. Please check BetMGM as numbers can change until game time**
1. Philadelphia Eagles -6.5 (-115)
Probably the best week possible for an emotional hedge! Go Colts, but if the more likely scenario unfolds, just know that your money’s protected. Maybe balance things out with a smaller bet on the cover just to feel like an expert if Indy pulls off another miracle.
2. Miles Sanders to Score and the Eagles to Win (+115)
Great odds on this one, without having to attach any sort of final score or spread to the bet. The Eagles have made a concerted effort to get Sanders into the end zone this year after he was shut out in 2021, and he’s responded with six rushing touchdowns in nine games. Getting plus odds here feels nice.
3. Jonathan Taylor Over 85.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
The Eagles made a concerted effort to improve their run defense this week, adding Ndamukong Suh to their newly-minted Pro Bowl front. They did so because they’re well aware the unit is currently a problem, without Jordan Davis for the next few weeks. Expect another big week from Taylor after he found his footing and mauled the Raiders; it’ll take a little while before the former stars Philly has recently picked off the street get up to speed.
