The Philadelphia Eagles are 0-2 SUATS versus AFC West opponents since 2011

Philadelphia is 1-2 SUATS during the 2013 campaign, as it just completed playing three games in 11 days, which can’t be ignored when making your pro football picks in Week 4.  The visiting team has only three wins in 11 overall meetings in this series, but these teams haven’t met since Dec. 27, 2009.  The Eagles will bring their No. 1 ranked rushing attack into this affair, but they’ll face a Broncos unit that paces the league in stopping the run.  Philadelphia is 0-2 SUATS versus AFC West opponents the last two-plus seasons.

The Eagles have racked up an NFC-leading 1,385 total net yards in 2013, which happens to be the highest total ever by the franchise through the first three games of the season.  Philadelphia’s biggest weapon on the offensive end is running back LeSean McCoy, who needs just seven years to set a team record for most rushing yards through the first four games of a campaign.  First-year head coach Chip Kelly has been an innovator in the league thus far, as the team leads the league in averaging 6.99 yards per play.

Denver is looking for its 12th 4-0 start in team history when it continues a two-game homestand at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, while it also looks to extend its 14-game regular-season win streak.  The Broncos have scored 127 points this season—tying for the second-highest scoring total in NFL history through three games.  On the other side of the football, the franchise ranks first in the league in allowing opponents to gain just 2.3 yards per carry.  Denver is 5-4 SUATS in September the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 5-3-1 in that situation.

The Broncos have been known for getting off to fast starts since 1996, as they’ve compiled a 45-20 record in September over that span, which is the top mark in the NFL.  Denver is leading the league with a plus-38 scoring differential in the second half through three games, which isn’t very surprising due to its 299-138 differential in that category a season ago.

Sports bettors will likely back the Broncos due to their 6-1-1 ATS mark in their last eight overall games.
