49ers vs Eagles Week 5 NFL Picks & Vegas NFL Odds: The San Francisco 49ers are desperate for a NFL picks victory and they are still searching after losing the lead and the NFL predictions match-up in the final seconds to the Atlanta Falcons last week. This week, they get the Philadelphia Eagles at home, minus Michael Vick, and Vegas odds have posted the 49ers as -3(-120) point NFL odds favorites in week five of the NFL schedule.
San Francisco (0-4) has struggled offensively this NFL picks season so far, ranking near the bottom of the league in passing and 28th in rushing yardage. With Frank Gore at running back, that ranking is a surprise. Gore has gained 270 yards, with only a 3.7 rushing average per carry, and just one touchdown this NFL predictions season. He has had no support from any other runners. While you would like to think Alex Smith is making strides at quarterback, the numbers say otherwise. Smith has thrown just three touchdown passes to 7 interceptions. That output must reverse. The versatile Gore is his leading receiver with 29 catches this NFL picks season, with tight end Vernon Davis next. Receivers Josh Morgan and Michael Crabtree have been disappointing.
The Eagles have played well against the pass as a top defense in passing yardage allowed, but have let opponents run all over them. They have forced six turnovers, all interceptions and three by rookie Nate Allen, and they have also sacked the quarterback 13 times. Their aggressive, attacking defense will look to get in the face of Smith and force bad throws in tonight's week 5 NFL picks match-up. Gore could run on this team and the defense could tire if the Eagles offense struggles.
This week 5 NFL picks contest should be a low scoring game and the Vegas odds show an over/under of 38( ov-115). You’ll want to make your week 5 NFL picks in the UNDER. The Eagles have enough playmakers on offense and too much defense for the 49ers to overcome. Look for Philadelphia to cover the Vegas spread and win outright, leaving the 49ers still searching for their first win.
