Best Week 13 prop bets for New York Jets-Philadelphia Eagles
Fresh off a rejuvenating win over the Texans, the New York Jets (3-8) are 1-0 since franchise quarterback Zach Wilson made his return following a four-week absence due to a PCL injury.
Wilson and the Jets will shoot for their first win streak of the season today as they host the Philadelphia Eagles (5-7). It will be Wilson’s first home game since he defeated the Titans with a career-high 297 passing yards on Oct. 3.
Philadelphia will likely be without starting quarterback Jalen Hurts, who is reportedly a game-time decision. He would be replaced by Gardner Minshew.
The Jets are looking for their first-ever triumph over their cross-conference rivals from just a few miles down I-95. Philadelphia is the only team that the Jets have never beaten. The Eagles own an 11-0 edge in the all-time series.
While New York aims to build end-of-season momentum that can be carried over into 2022, the Eagles remain in the thick of the NFC playoff picture. They are just a half-game back from the NFC’s third wild card position.
Philly is a 5-point favorite at most outlets. Here are some of the most intriguing prop bets to consider for the game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Ryan Griffin: Over 18.5 receiving yards (-110)
Philadelphia has allowed a league-high 71.6 receiving yards per game to tight ends. An opposing tight end has posted at least 20 yards in 11 of the Eagles’ 12 games this season.
Ryan Griffin is one of the least intimidating starting tight ends in football, but against a tight end-susceptible defense like Philly’s, he should be able to go over 18.5 yards. Griffin has posted at least 20 receiving yards in four consecutive games.
Elijah Moore: Under 51.5 receiving yards (-110)
Until Elijah Moore and Zach Wilson prove they have chemistry together, the smart play is to expect little of Moore.
In six games started by Wilson, Moore is averaging only 20.8 receiving yards per game with a peak of 47 yards. In four games without Wilson, Moore averaged 84.0 yards per game.
Moore will be going up against an excellent Philadelphia cornerback group, too. Darius Slay and Avonte Maddox rank third and sixth, respectively, in Pro Football Focus’ coverage grade out of 122 qualified cornerbacks.
Double Result: Philadelphia Eagles – New York Jets (+1000)
To win the bet, the Eagles must lead at halftime while the Jets end up winning the game in regulation.
At +1000, I like this bet quite a bit. This Jets team has proven it has a knack for come-from-behind wins. New York trailed at halftime in all three of its victories this season.
