Tips for Betting on Philadelphia Eagles
After a week 11 beatdown by the New Orleans Saints, everyone thought the Philadelphia Eagles’ bid for back-to-back Super Bowls was all but over. Yet, after that humbling loss in the Superdome, the Eagles won five of their last six games and snuck into the playoffs in week 17.
The big storyline around the Eagles’ surge was QB Nick Foles, who was filling in for the injured Carson Wentz. Foles won three straight to close the year, then helped the Eagles upset the Bears in the divisional round. The 2019 Eagles offense will have Wentz back under center as Foles signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Eagles locked up Wentz to a multi-year extension.
On paper, it looks like the Eagles have the best shot of dethroning the Cowboys in the NFC East and reclaiming the division. The offense has the potential to be one of the best in the NFL, with Wentz, WR Alshon Jeffrey, TE Zach Ertz, and former Bears RB Jordan Howard giving the Eagles top-tier talent across the major skill positions. They beefed up their offensive line in the draft, nabbing OT Andre Dillard with the 22nd pick.
The Eagles were consistently streaky in the second half of the 2018 season. They hit the under in three straight games, then hit the over three straight times before ending the season with three straight unders. Including the postseason, the Eagles covered the spread in their last five games of the season.
- The Eagles ended the year even vs. the point spread last season, going 9-9-0.
- The Eagles were one of the league’s worst teams at hitting overs last season, ending the year with a 6-9-1 record in that category.
- After playing a road game vs. the Bills on October 27th (week eight), the Eagles don’t play another road game until December 1st (week 13 at Dolphins).
