In this match-up between the (0-2) Chiefs at the (1-1) Eagles on Sunday in Philadelphia, both teams are dealing with quarterback issues. For the visitors Matt Cassel will get the nod and for the Eagles it will be Kevin Kolb. Right now at Bookmaker.com which is “Where the Line Originates” the Philadelphia Eagles are a eight point (-8) betting favorite with the over / under wagering game total at forty and one half (40.5) points scored combined by both teams.
The bottom line is I don’t like the Chiefs this year and they do have a very tough schedule in the first half of the year facing the NFC East. But, in this situation I will be backing them, mainly because no McNabb, no Eagles. Believe it or not the Chiefs hung around with the Ravens week one and lost to the Raiders in the final minute in week two. The eagles in my opinion without McNabb or Brian Westbrook are a team that I can NOT back, especially laying eight (-8) points. Look for the Chiefs to play sound defense against a hurt team and stay closer then expected.
The Eagles will try not to lose two in a row at home, but with Kolb behind the wheel and Vick playing wildcat for the first time I will be taking the Kansas City Chiefs plus the eight (+8) points!
