Carson Wentz's stats history
Wentz made it through all 16 games last season for the first time since his rookie campaign of 2016, and he led the Eagles to the NFC East Division title.

Passing Touchdowns: 26.5 / OVER: -120 / UNDER: +100
It's risky to bet the over on Wentz, only because he has made it through all 16 games just twice in his four-year NFL career. The good news for Wentz is that he has a decent stable of pass catchers in WRs Desean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery and TE Zach Ertz. After that, however, the receiving corps is a little questionable, so Wentz's production is also connected to D-Jax, Jeffery and Ertz staying healthy. The Eagles figure to have a strong run game with RBs Miles Sanders and Boston Scott, too. If Philly's offense is a little more balanced, it will hurt Wentz and his potential to go "Over" in passing yardage. Look at it this way, he has eclipsed the target yardage total just once in four NFL seasons. He also has managed to hit 27 or more touchdown passes just twice in his career, and he barely inched over the line last season. Bet the UNDER on both props.
