Carson Wentz threw two touchdowns passes as the Philadelphia Eagles won their sixth game in a row, over the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 33-10 on Monday (AEDT).
The wet conditions at Lincoln Financial Field didn’t worry the NFL-leading Eagles, who moved to 7-1, which is their best start to a season since 2004, and in from $9 to $7 to lift the trophy for the first time since 1960.
Signal-caller Wentz’ two touchdowns move his season tally to 19, which keeps him on track to break the franchise’s season record of 32, set by Sonny Jurgensen in 1961.
The loss leaves the 49ers at 0-8 for the first time in their history, and their quote of $1001 to win the Super Bowl is the biggest in the market.
The Eagles may be the talk of the league, but it is still the reigning Super Bowl champion New England Patriots who sit on top of the betting market at $4.50, after they made it four wins in a row with a win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
Tom Brady passed for 333 yards and a touchdown while kicker Stephen Gostkowski slotted four field goals in the 21-13 win. The Chargers drop to 3-5 and $51 to win the title.
Seattle Seahawks remain a $10 chance after winning the game of the week when quarterback Russell Wilson found Jimmy Graham for an 18-yard touchdown with just 21 seconds on the clock, which completed a 41-38 win over the Houston Texans.
Case Keenum threw for two touchdowns and Kai Forbath made four field goals as Minnesota beat Cleveland 33-16 in London – the last of four games held this season in Britain.
The final game of the week came on Tuesday (AEDT), when the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Denver Broncos 29-19. The real story was Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian who threw three picks.
The Chiefs remain a $10 chance after the win, ahead of the Minnesota Vikings ($17), who beat the Cleveland Browns 33-16 in London – the last of four games to be played in the English capital this season.
