Top NFL sportsbooks favor the Eagles over the Vikings by close to a field goal when the Minnesota Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles play on Monday in week 2 of NFL action from Lincoln Financial Field. The Minnesota Vikings hope for their first 2-0 start since 2016. The Philadelphia Eagles aim for their first 2-0 start since the same year.

The Eagles (1-0 SU, 1-0 ATS) and Vikings (1-0, 1-0) are both looking like potential division champions following their season openers. Philadelphia prepare to host the Vikes in the second part of a Week 2 Monday Night Football doubleheader. The Eagles are fresh off a 38-35 win over the Detroit Lions as six-point road faves at the best online sportsbooks. The Vikings shut down Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers 23-7 as two-point home favorites.

There has been a little early action on behalf of Philadelphia at top sportsbooks. The line rose from -2 to -2.5, but the big move came on the total. It jumped two points to 50.5 after both offenses were impressive in Week 1. The Eagles led 31-14 early in the third quarter before they took their foot off the gas.
The Vikings took reigning two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers down a peg or three. They picked him off once and he went without a touchdown pass for the first time since last November. Defensively, each team will face more of a challenge.

Betting Minnesota Vikings

Kirk Cousins has had trouble for much of his career when he plays on prime time. However, Cousins started turning things around late last season. He beat the Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears back-to-back on TNF and MNF. The Vikings covered the top sportsbooks’ spread against the Steelers and Bears. He raised his prime-time record to 10-17 outright. His losing record under the lights is bound to be discussed at some point during the broadcast; however, recency bias should at least be taken more into account in this spot.

The defense will be put to the tested once again. This time against a dangerous dual-threat QB. Rodgers had a few new receivers and played just as badly in last year’s season opener. Thus, his performance is by no means a reliable barometer.
This opponent is a different beast, especially after we saw how A.J. Brown had 10 catches for 155 yards at Detroit. If Minnesota can hold back Brown and contain Hurts on the ground, the team will have a chance to get upset.

The Minnesota Vikings have lost six of their last nine road games. Kirk Cousins completed 71.9% of his passes for 277 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen combined for a total 220 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
Dalvin Cook had three receptions. The Minnesota Vikings rushed 126 yards. Cook had 90 yards on 20 carries. Minnesota allowed seven points and 338 yards. Jordan Hicks had 14 tackles, Za’Darius Smith one sack and Harrison Smith one interception.

Betting Philadelphia Eagles

When head coach Nick Sirianni expressed his support for Jalen Hurts as the undisputed starting quarterback, some didn’t get why he was so confident. Hurts put those doubts to rest, especially on the ground.
Sirianni observed that Hurts was “in complete control” and “saw the field perfectly” in spite of some early trouble throwing the ball. He ran the ball very well. Also he toted the pigskin 17 times for 90 yards and one touchdown. He added 243 passing yards.

It took Hurts a little bit to get in sync with Brown, but the pair looked great once they got some chemistry going, and improved from there on out. Hurts needs Brown to step up as he cannot win this running the ball by himself. He needs to keep the Vikings on their toes through the air and on the ground defensively. If he does that, Philly can cover the point spread.

The Philadelphia Eagles have lost five of their last eight home games. Jalen Hurts completed 56.3% of his passes for 243 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. A.J. Brown and Dallas Goedert had a total of 215 receiving yards on 13 catches. Kenneth Gainwell has two receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles rushed for 216 yards. Miles Sanders had 96 yards and one touchdown.
