Despite securing the NFC East crown, with a win over the Los Angeles Rams, the Philadelphia Eagles drifted from $6 to $11 after quarterback Carson Wentz went down with a season ending knee injury.
The Eagles secured a 43-35 win over the Rams, who stormed back from 21-7 behind to hit the front in the fourth quarter, before defensive end Brandon Graham secured the win with a touchdown in the final play of the game.
Pennsylvania’s other franchise, the Pittsburgh Steelers moved from $7 into the second line of betting, at $5.50 after they clinched the AFC North Title with a nail-biting win over Baltimore Ravens.
The Steelers trailed by 11 points at the end of the third quarter, but clawed their way back into the contest, which allowed kicker Chris Boswell to slot a 46-yard field goal with just 42 seconds remaining, which gave the black and gold a crucial 39-38 win.
New England Patriots remain the top pick at $3.50, despite losing on Tuesday (AEDT) 27-20 to the Miami Dolphins at Miami Garden’s Hard Rock Stadium.
The loss is just the third for the season for the reigning Super Bowl Champions, in what was a rare tough night for Tom Brady, who failed to convert once on a third down for the night.
The Minnesota Vikings lost 31-24 to the Carolina Panthers, who kept their season alive and moved into $21 to win the Super Bowl for the first time.
Despite the loss, the Vikings remain on the third line of betting, at $7.50, to become the first team to hold the Vince Lombardi trophy at home.
Cleveland Browns remain winless after an overtime 27-21 loss to Green Bay Packers. Hue Jackson’s charges came back from 21-7 down, but couldn’t avoid slipping to 0-13.
