Almost three years on from their triumph at Super Bowl LII, the Philadelphia Eagles enter the 2020 betting season hoping to win the NFC East for the third time in four seasons.
Head coach Doug Pederson has taken his team into the post-season for three straight seasons, and questions loom large as to where the Eagles will go after foraying as far as the wild card play-offs in 2019.
has Pennsylvania bettors covered for prop and special bet selections, such as the +900 price being offered on Philadelphia to win each of their six division matchups this season.
The Eagles were one result away from accomplishing this feat in 2019 and 2017, with the Dallas Cowboys the only NFC East team to defeat them during the regular season in both cases.
It again looks likely to be the Cowboys who will provide the most resistance in the division this term, though the Cincinnati Bengals could warrant more attention if No. 1 Draft pick Joe Burrows kicks on with the franchise. Nevertheless, a healthy Carson Wentz is capable of leading this team against any of the elite, and Philadelphia’s improvements in the speed department this off-season could transform them into a more dangerous beast.
Wentz rampaged to a team-record 4,039 passing yards in 2019, and he’ll hope to better that mark again this year in the hopes of another Super Bowl appearance. It was in 2017 that the 27-year-old led the Eagles to football’s most coveted prize after posting a 13-3 record, their best regular-season finish since 2004.
New Jersey and PA bettors can back the birds at +1100 with to rack up at least 13 wins again in 2020, a task that looks all the tougher considering their last three road games are at Green Bay, Arizona and Dallas.
Their start isn’t as daunting, however, with Washington, the Los Angeles Rams, Cincinnati and San Francisco first to enter Philadelphia’s sights. A princely price of +500 is available for the Eagles to win each of those four games, something the franchise hasn’t pulled off in 16 years.
Philadelphia open their 2020 campaign at FedEx Field on September 13 with everything to play for, and keeping key men fit will again be essential in keeping alive their post-season dreams.
