Seahawks are now favored against Eagles with Alshon Jeffery sidelined

The Eagles injury report is a problem in Week 12, and bettors are adjusting accordingly.

The Seattle Seahawks opened as one-point underdogs this week for their Week 12 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles. Late week injury news is shaking that up, and Seattle is now a 1.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.

The Eagles will be without wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor, along with running back Jordan Howard. Miles Sanders will get the bulk of the work in Howard’s place, while the Eagles wide receiver corps is down to Jordan Matthews, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Mack Hollins and Greg Ward. Look for Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert to be extra busy in the passing game.

It is worth noting that edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney is inactive for this game due to knee and hip injury issues. This is a huge loss given how much of a wrecking ball he has been against opposing offensive lines. If you’re planning on betting Seattle in this game, make sure to consider this injury. Carson Wentz is missing a lot of options, but not having to deal with Clowney in this defense is a big deal. This might be a game you stay away from rather than betting Seattle.
