The Arizona Republic: Eagles 31, Texans 13

Jeremy Cluff writes: "The Jalen Hurts to A.J. Brown connection has been special. I wouldn't be surprised if they combine for a couple more touchdowns in this game." Bet the Eagles to cover vs. Texans

Bill Speros writes: "It is heaven for Philly fans right now. The Eagles are 7-0 and will playing at a nearly-empty NRG Stadium in Houston. The eyes of both cities are also fixated on the World Series, where the Astros and Phillies will playing Game 5 at the same time in Philadelphia thanks to Monday’s rainout. Don't worry too much about the Texans having any home-field advantage here. The Eagles are a truck. They're 7-0 ATS in the first half. A sign of terrific pre-game preparation. Jalen Hurts is racing toward Elite QB status. This game will be another giant step in that journey. Yes, this is a monster line. Philly is 5-2 ATS but has covered its three biggest lines of the season."

Draft Kings: Take the Eagles to cover vs. Texans

David Fucillo writes: "This game seems tempting to view as a letdown game, but considering what they did to a bad Steelers squad earlier today, it’s hard to see the Eagles having a letdown against most anybody. They’re absolutely rolling along. A short week can be tough to figure out, but this has the makings of a 24-6 type of game for the Eagles."

Fan Duel: Go with the Eagles to cover vs. Texans

Larry Rupp writes: "Oddsmakers are giving the Eagles a clear edge ahead of this Week 9 contest. ESPN's FPI is also favoring Philly and I find myself in the same boat. Head coach Nick Sirianni has his team firing on all cylinders right now, ranking as a top-five scoring offense and a top-five scoring defense. Asking a second-year quarterback in Davis Mills to keep up with that is unrealistic."
