The line hasn't opened on every website out there, but for now Scores and Odds has the 49ers as 9 point underdogs to the Eagles, with an over/under of 43.5. The line opened at 9.5, but has quickly dropped a half a point. We'll see how much money comes in on the 49ers once the glow of Monday's win wears off. The Eagles will likely be without Jeremy Maclin who has provided them of a bit of explosion. Of course, when you've got Desean Jackson doing his thing in most every facet of the game, I suppose not having Maclin isn't exactly going to kill the Eagles.
Given that the 49ers were underdogs last week, it's no surprise they covered with the win, although they didn't really come close to the 44.5 point over/under. The win against the spread improved the 49ers to 2-3-1 ATS versus Arizona over the last six games.
