To know how much of an impact Miles Sanders is going to make in this game will tell you everything you need to know. So it’s a mystery that will unlock a lot for sports betters. If he has a big game, that could reduce Jalen Hurts’ need to run the game. It could also mean that the Eagles are killing clock because they’re up by multiple scores. If Sanders is struggling, maybe Kenneth Gainwell has a big day instead. Either way, the Eagles are running the ball against the Chiefs until they prove they cannot.
Despite Gainwell’s recent success, I do not think the Eagles stray away from Sanders. He scored two touchdowns against the Niners in the NFC Championship, and on the season scored 13 times! He’s gone over 60 yards rushing 11 times including once in the playoffs. He will get yards, but it’s the touches I can’t guarantee anyone when there is four players (Sanders, Gainwell, Hurts, and Boston Scott) who can touch the ball. So stay away from the rushing attempts prop, that’s a sucker bet.
Now, Vegas is telling you that Sanders is not going to be involved in the pass game, receiving yards over is 4.5 (-110 FanDuel), under is 10.5 (-210 PointsBet) and his receptions over is 0.5 (-170 PointsBet) while the under 1.5 (-189 Caesars). If you’ve got to get more action on Sanders, punching in a score is the most likely thing to happen in the red zone. The odds of him scoring are favorable from a betting standpoint, but it’s not a stretch to bring in a lot of earnings.
