Video Transcript

MINTY BETS: We've got some "Sunday Night Football" this week, guys. It's going to be the San Francisco 49ers hosting the Philadelphia Eagles. The Niners are a favorite of seven points. And the total is set at 44.5. I like the Niners at home here.

They came off back-to-back blowout wins. Even though like everyone is injured on both sides of the ball, and the Eagles just didn't look that great so far this season. So I feel comfortable laying it with the Niners, no matter if it's Nick Mullens or if it's Jimmy G. Let's go with Matt next. What's your pick for this game?

MATTY GENIUS: I disagree. I'm all over the Eagles plus seven in this one. A touchdown is a massive amount of points to get in primetime. I know the Eagles have struggled in weeks one through three.

But I think they can get it together here. The 49ers still have a lot of injuries. And I just think the Eagles catch in seven, to me it's the play. I might take a little bit of moneyline, just feeling a little risky.

MINTY BETS: OK. And, Jared, what about you?

JARED QUAY: I am agreeing with Gothard and everything he said. So, no, I got a way better explanation, Gothard. Let me tell you why the Eagles plus seven is the best play. Last time the 49ers were favored by seven points at home, they lost outright to the Cardinals. I think Carson Wentz is going to be his best he can be.

And I think that defense is going to shut down a conservative offense from Kyle Shanahan because everybody is injured. So you give me seven points, I like it. And if you're really risky-- and I know Gothard probably on this-- Eagles' moneyline.

MATTY GENIUS: It's never a good thing if we agree, never a good thing.
