One And Done “Rest Edge” For Eagles

September 24th, 2023

Serious bettors know all about “rest edge.”

It’s not something to mess with.

If you enter a game with more rest than your opponent, than you own the “rest edge,” and the data says you’ll perform significantly better. Last year, teams with a three-or-more-day “rest edge” on their opponent went 32-24-1 (57%) and covered the spread at a 54.4% rate, per

This year, the Eagles, Tampa Bay’s opponent tomorrow night, have only one game all season in which they have more rest than their opponent.

Yes, it’s Monday night’s game against the Bucs at The Licht House.

The Eagles played 10 days ago on a Thursday night to open Week 2, a win against the Vikings. The Bucs played a week ago at home against the Bears.

If you look at the Bucs-Eagles injury report, both teams have banged up players, including big names.

Will those few extra days make a difference? Joe’s not sure, but Joe does know the Bucs will lose the “rest edge” battle again next Sunday when they travel on short rest to face New Orleans.

    Carr injured his shoulder and Jameis is in. Bucs could be facing Jameis next Sunday.

    You’re very close to being banned. –Joe

  3. Buccos Says:

    Please do ban him

  4. Mr. Editor Says:

    It looks like New Orleans will get the “rest edge”, too, for one day, at least. The Bucs might also be facing JW.

  5. NE Fan Says:

    Really Joe, all the off color posts and that struck a nerve? There was nothing malicious in that post.

  6. D-Rok Says:

    Off-topic, but as a football fan, I saw a few box scores, and had to adjust my glasses: Miami 70, Broncos 20. 4 minutes left in game. Wait, what?

    I about spit out my drink. 70? (They should have intentionally missed the last extra point to get a Gronk-friendly score…)

    It’s almost like the Dolphins had PLENTY of rest or sumthing. Geez are the Fins really that good, or just a fluke scoring 70 points in the NFL?

  7. NE Fan Says:

    How do you sit Minshew if he beats Baltimore when Richardson gets healthy?

  8. Joshua porter Says:

    Cuz Richardson is a better qb.. see didn’t seem that hard to figure out. Go bucs

  9. NE Fan Says:

    Well Joshua if in the next two minutes Indy scores Minshew 2-0, Richardson 0-1. Describe better?

    Not 30 days in the hole. “Banned”. Dude must have screwed up hard.

  11. SlyPirate Says:

    MEANINGLESS STAT … The home team has won 82% of MNF games.

    I like that stat better than yours, Joe.

  12. NE Fan Says:

    Durango@ it wasn’t anything bad, I got a bad rap.

    I hear you, brother. But, like you said, it must have struck a nerve. Dunno.

  15. Durango 95 Says:

    Meanwhile, the Dolphins put 70 points on the board. Taylor Swift is in the box in KC. And 100,000.00 worth of items were stolen from the Bears. In NFL terms that’s probably about 10 pairs of shoelaces.

  16. NE Fan Says:

    3 pairs of Air Jordan’s. Anyone that doesn’t think Miami wasn’t the real deal needs to look at their offensive stats.

  17. Mike C Says:

    No NE fan it isn’t a bad rap, you are a Doossh.

    No one likes a front running dork

  19. Mostly Peaceful Trask Fan Says:

    KC is up 24-0 over Chicago at the half and they have nobody at WR.

    Vikings are 0-3

    Some perspective perhaps?

  20. NE Fan Says:

    FYI Bears are NOT good!!!

  21. unbelievable Says:

    Speaking of KC… D Smith just threw a d-lineman down onto Mahome’s calf / Achilles.


  22. Mark Plant City Says:

    Morale will not improve until NE Fan is banned. Mark Plant City

  23. NE Fan Says:

    Banned for speaking my mind, I think I heard that before?

  24. garro Says:

    Hype the Gambling much Joe?

    Go Bucs!

  25. BillyBucco Says:

    NE Fan
    Neither are the Jets!!!
    Scraped by with that one.

  26. NE Fan Says:

    Billy the Jets have one of the best D’s in the league and by the way they beat the Bill’s.

  27. NE Fan Says:

    BillyBucco@ Paytiots D ranked 3, Jets 6. Bucs 20 and Bears and Minn don’t even register. FYI Eagles are either 2 or 4th.

    Are we already making excuses for losing tonight?
