Minnesota Vikings (1-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (1-0)
This line, favoring the Eagles at home by two points, suggests the odds makers view these two teams as about even, but I have the Eagles about three points better in my roster rankings, so we’re getting good line value with the Eagles in a game in which they basically just need to win to cover. Overall, the Eagles could be one of the better teams in the league this season, getting better on both sides of the ball this off-season, after finishing 9th in overall efficiency and making the post-season in 2021, and, while the Vikings are a solid team who beat the Packers last week and who could easily make the post-season, I don’t think they’re on the same level as the Eagles. This isn’t a big bet, but I’m pretty confident in the Eagles at anything less than three.
