The Eagles come into tonight’s game 1-0 in NFL preseason action as they beat Jacksonville 28-27 last week. The Eagles were 3 point favorites, but failed to cover the spread as they used a 4th quarter comeback to take their first preseason game in front of their home crowd. Eagles QB Kevin Kolb and the first team offense played one quarter in their opener, but Eagles coach Andy Reid has said that they will play the entire first half in tonight’s game. Kolb was 6 for 11 for 95 yards, While Vick took over for the majority of the snaps and wet 11 for 17 for 119 yards and threw one interception. Vick also rushed for 50 yards and a touchdown.
The Bengals are one of the two teams who come into Week 2 of the NFL preseason with an extra game in hand, as they played in the Hall of Fame game against the Cowboys, where they lost 16-7. Last week the Bengals scored a home win against the Denver Broncos by a score of 33-24. Cincinnati were 3.5 point favorites in that game, and covered that number by outscoring Denver 16-7 in the second half. The Bengals are on a short week as they had just five days of rest. Carson Palmer was 12 for 15 and threw for 105 yards against the Broncos, while JT O’Sullivan threw for 118 yards. Bernard Scott led the team in rushing as he went for 65 yards on 8 carries.

Eagles vs Bengals Spread, Betting Line and Odds:
Eagles vs Bengals Preseason Prediction:
Money Line/Spread Prediction – Kevin Kolb and the Eagles first team offense will see all of the action in the first half according to Eagles coach Andy Reid. Kolb is a solid QB that I think will lead this Eagles team to the playoffs this year even in their tough NFC division. Behind Kolb is Michael Vick who looked solid in his time played last week, and can definitely run a solid offense. With the Bengals on only 5 days of rest I look for the starters to get minimal playing time tonight. The play here is on the Eagles as underdogs. PREDICTION – EAGLES +2.5 on the spread
Game Total Prediction – After the total opened up at 35.5 it has quickly moved up to 37.5 with most of the action coming in on the over. Both offenses looked good in Week 1 of the preseason, with the Eagles putting up 28 points and the Bengals putting up 33 in their win. With the Eagles giving their number one offense half a game today I think they can do some damage against a defense that is on a short week. Play is on the over here tonight. PREDICTION – OVER 37.5 points (-110)
