Eagles vs Colts Free NFL Prediction, 8-27-2016
Eagles vs Colts Free Prediction by Sports Picks Forum
The Eagles have jumped out to a 2-0 start this preseason with a 17-9 home victory over Tampa Bay, followed by last week’s 17-0 shutout victory in Pittsburgh. Indianapolis opened things up with a one-point win on the road in Buffalo, then hosted the Ravens last weekend, falling by the identical 19-18 score in which they has won in week 1 of the preseason.
In week 2 of the preseason, Sam Bradford went 14-19 for 115 yards while Andrew Luck went 8-8 for 71 yards. Both starting quarterbacks looked impressive in their 2nd preseason game.
Philadelphia’s defense has looked good under new Defensive Coordinator Jim Schwartz. Last week, the Eagles posted a dominating 17 point shutout as the defense allowed just 207 total yards and only 50 on the ground. The week before against Tampa Bay, they produced four turnovers and three picks. It appears that tables have turned so far this season as the Eagles may be more concerned about scoring points then they are about giving up points on defense.
The secondary has been banged up as Darius Butler and Jalil Brown both missed the game with respective hamstring and foot injuries. Vontae Davis and Patrick Robins are both day-to-day with injuries as well. Indianapolis did bring in Antonio Cromartie this week to help stop the bleeding at defensive back.
Andrew Luck will most likely see more action vs the Eagles and could play the entire 1st half. The Eagles defense has looked good so far but they haven’t faced a QB like Luck. With that being said, if the Eagles defense is for real they will try and get after Luck which means the Colts could have to monitor his playing time to avoid any issues with their star QB.
Over is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings
Road team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings
