Why Bet On Philadelphia?
The Eagles fell to 1-2 in preseason after getting upended by Baltimore 26-15 on Thursday night. The good news however is that veteran quarterback Josh McCown looked absolutely fantastic in completing 17 of 24 passes for 192 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions after being signed by the Birds just days before.
“It took me a while to get cranked up,” McCown said. “I wanted to find a rhythm. We all looked at like it’s an extended practice. I need as much work as I can get to get caught up to speed and I appreciated the opportunity.”
With McCown under center before giving way to roster-hopefuls, Cody Kessler and Clayton Thorson, the Eagles look solid heading into this preseason finale.
Why Bet On The NY Jets?
The Jets also fell to 1-2 in the preseason by falling to Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints 28-13 on Saturday as starting quarterback Sam Darnold completed a modest 8 of 13 passes for 97 yards and one score while playing the entire first half.
“We wanted them to play the whole first half,” head coach Adam Gase said of Darnold and the rest of his teams’ starters. “It just felt like after we scored the touchdown it was the right time, kind of finish that group on a good note.”
Backup quarterback Davis Webb went 7 of 10 for 56 yards while roster hopefuls, Trevor Siemian and Luke Falk combined to go 8 of 10 for an additional 63 yards. Kicker Taylor Bertolet nailed longs field goals of 48 and 56 yards in the defeat.

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Eagles vs Jets
While both teams will sit their starters in this meaningless Week 4 preseason finale, I say the Philadelphia Eagles are the pick to win this one by at least a field goal, mostly because they’ll have the best backup quarterback on the field in this one. I’m expecting to see Josh McCown for a few series at the very least, just to get him some more reps after coming out of retirement.
Eagles are a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and an even more impressive 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. Conversely, the Jets are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and an awful 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Eagles are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings, plus, I don’t have any faith whatsoever in New York’s trio of backups and that will be the difference in this affair.
