NFL Betting Preview: Philadelphia Eagles vs. San Francisco 49ers

December 3, 2023


A rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game will take place on Sunday afternoon in week 13 of the NFL season when the San Francisco 49ers travel to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to face the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field with the game kicking off at 4:25 PM ET and airing on Fox.

The San Francisco 49ers enter this game on a three-game winning streak following last week’s 31-13 win on the road against the Seattle Seahawks and have outscored their opponents 92 to 30 points during their winning streak with the most impressive win coming on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars by a score of 34-3. Brock Purdy has played at an All-Pro level over the last three games as he has completed 61 of 81 attempts for 838 yards with seven touchdowns and one interception. 

The success the 49ers have had this season can be attributed to their defense as they enter this game allowing the fewest points per game in the NFL as they are allowing an average of 15.45 points per game. The offense has also been one of the top-scoring offenses in the league as they are averaging the 4th most points per game and have the 7th best rushing offense this season led by Christian McCaffrey who enters this game leading the NFL in rushing with 939 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. 

The San Francisco 49ers will look to avenge last year’s loss in the NFC Championship game when they travel to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday afternoon.

The Philadelphia Eagles have the best record in the NFL with a record of 10-1 which also puts them 2 games ahead of the Dallas Cowboys for 1st place in the NFC East. The offense has been one of the most explosive offenses in the league as they enter this game tied for 3rd in points per game with an average of 28.18 points per game. Jalen Hurts has played a pivotal role in the success the Eagles have had on offense this season as he enters this game having completed 242 of 358 attempts for 2,697 yards with 18 touchdowns and ten interceptions while rushing for 410 yards and 11 touchdowns. 

However, the defense has been a below-average scoring defense this season as they are allowing the 13th most points per game in the NFL with an average of 22.36 points per game. The Eagles will look to extend their winning streak to six games when they host the San Francisco 49ers in week 13 of the NFL season.

BookMaker has the San Francisco 49ers listed as 3-point favorites on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday afternoon in week 13 of the NFL season. Philadelphia has won seven of the last ten and two of the last three meetings while going 8-2 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. 

The San Francisco 49ers are 6-5 ATS overall, 3-3 ATS on the road, and 6-5 ATS as a favorite this season while the Philadelphia Eagles are 7-2-2 ATS overall, 3-1-1 ATS at home and 1-0 ATS as an underdog on the year.

Both teams enter this game averaging the 3rd most points per game in the NFL with an average of 28.18 points per game, however, Philadelphia has been the better team in the series, winning seven of the last ten and two of the last three meetings. 

The Eagles have also been the better team at covering the spread in the series going 8-2 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three matchups while also being the better team this season at covering the spread with a record of 7-2-2 ATS overall while the 49ers are 6-5 ATS overall. As a result, I am taking the points with the Philadelphia Eagles when they host the San Francisco 49ers.
