It feels like a minute since we had an excellent primetime NFL game. Week 11 will remedy this with a rematch of Super Bowl 57 and a potential preview of Super Bowl 58 when the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles collide.
The pair are on their way to a rematch, and the Super Bowl odds list them as favorites to win it all. They are two of three teams with two or fewer losses, the other if you can believe it, being the Detroit Lions.
Despite being neck and neck in the standings, odds, and projections, the Eagles are + 2½ points underdogs on the NFL spread.
Will Eagles Soar as Underdogs?
The NFL lines this week for the Eagles vs. Chiefs make sense, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think Philly can overcome them and upset the Chiefs outright in this pivotal game. It may not mean much for the standings, but whoever wins this game has a significant mental advantage should the pair meet again in the Super Bowl.
If you want to save some time reading, just know I like what the Eagles have been doing on the road this season, particularly against NFL Vegas betting odds, with a 3-1-1 record against the spread. As a result, the Eagles have a road return on investment of 38.33%.

Green Light on Hurts Passing Prop
In the interest of providing a different take than calling for an outright upset, I’m adding a player prop to my Monday Night Football betting card for Jalen Hurts to go over his passing yards total of 233½.
This Jalen Hurts throw was crazy.

Hurts is having the best season of his career in pure passing yards, with an average of 260.8 per game and a completion rate of 68.9%. Both make career highs and show me that Hurts’ development into a bonafide superstar is still happening.
I realize that the Chiefs’ secondary is very talented and allows the fifth-fewest yards in the NFL. However, with A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith to cover, Hurts will find open players and keep the chains moving.

Question Of The Day
Which team's leading tackler is likelier to have over 10 total tackles in the game?
Drue Tranquill of the Chiefs is the most prolific tackler in this game, but he has only had 10+ tackles once this season.
