PHILADELPHIA EAGLES ODDS : 2020- 2021 NFL SEASON

The Philadelphia Eagles origins date back to 1933. They achieved their greatest amount of consistency in the 2000s, and then reached the mountaintop with their first and only Super Bowl title in the 2017 season. This is a franchise that has underachieved for most of its history, but the Eagles in the 21st century have been one of the better franchises in the NFL.

With the Dallas Cowboys struggling, the Eagles still have a chance to win another division title this season. Learn more about the Eagles with out NJ sports betting odds below:

Understanding How To Bet On The Eagles

There are many ways to bet on the Eagles from game to game, including point spreads, totals, props, live betting and more. You can also use NJ sports betting bonuses that are available.

If you are new to sports betting, let’s run through some of the common jargon and betting types you’ll see, so you can get a better understanding of how to wager on the Eagles.

How To Bet Eagles Point Spread

The Eagles are seven-point underdogs this Sunday in Pittsburgh against the Steelers. If you want to bet against the Eagles, you would take Pittsburgh -7. If the Steelers win by eight points or more, a Steeler bet against the point spread would win.

If you want to bet on the Eagles to cover the spread, you would take Philadelphia +7. If the Eagles lost by six points or fewer, or if they tied (as they did against the Bengals in Week 3), or if they won outright, an Eagle bet against the spread would be a winner.=

How To Bet Eagles Moneyline

On the moneyline, the Eagles are priced at +265 against the Steelers, while Pittsburgh is priced at -330 against Philadelphia. This is a straight-up bet, not against the spread. If Philadelphia wins outright and you bet on the Eagles at +265, you would win $265 on a $100 bet. If Pittsburgh wins outright and you bet on the Steelers at -330, you would win $100 for at $330 bet. That’s what those prices (with the plus or minus signs) mean for a moneyline bet.

How To Bet Eagles Total (Over-Under)

The over-under for Eagles-Steelers is 44, with both the over bet and the under bet being priced at -110. If you bet on the over in the Eagles’ game against the Steelers and the final score is 24-21 – a total of 45 points – you would win $100 on a $110 bet. If you bet the under and the final score was 20-19 – a total of 39 points – you would also win $100 on a $110 bet.

How To Bet Eagles Futures

Futures are long-term bets relating to situational outcomes not immediately connected to a specific game. With the Eagles, an obvious futures proposition is if they will win the NFC East. Given how badly Dallas is playing, the Eagles’ price probably isn’t going to be extremely high for a futures bet.

However, futures bets have higher prices than single-game-based betting plays. Let’s say the Eagles are +400 to win the NFC East. A $100 bet which wins would give you $400.

The Eagles winning more than nine games would be a much bigger longshot. The Eagles might be +2000 to win over nine games, which means if you bet $100 and win, you would get $2,000. The low odds of the Eagles winning 10 games would explain why the payout would be so much higher.

How To Bet Eagles Props

A proposition bet is often player-focused rather than team-focused, or involves some other question than a point spread in a game or a team’s win total. How many passing yards would quarterback Carson Wentz have in a season, for instance?

The number might be set at 2,500 yards. How many rushing yards would Miles Sanders have – more than 900? Those are possible betting propositions to consider, and you would want to study the price to see if the reward is worth the risk.

HOW DID THE EAGLES DO LAST YEAR?

The 2019 Eagles had a weird season with a lot of ups and downs. The Eagles lost two games in a row on two different occasions, and they lost three in a row at one point in their schedule. However, they won two games in a row on two occasions and then closed their season with four straight victories.

The Eagles were 3-4 through seven games and then won twice to go to 5-4. They lost three straight to fall to 5-7, but they scrambled to win their last four and finish 9-7, winning the NFC East. The 15th game of the season was against the Dallas Cowboys. The winner would be in line to win the NFC East and host a wild card playoff game. T

he loser would be out of the playoffs. Philadelphia beat the Cowboys, 17-9, and then sealed the division championship the next week with a 34-17 victory over the New York Giants. The Eagles hosted the Seattle Seahawks in the wild card game but lost, with starting quarterback Carson Wentz getting knocked out.

EAGLES 2020 DRAFT PICKS

One of the great things about a new season is seeing how quickly the latest NFL Draft picks adjust to the pro game. Here is a look at the 2020 class:

Round 1, pick 21: Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU

  • Reagor has been injured and unable to do much of anything yet this season, but the Eagles will need him.

Round 2, pick 53: Jalen Hurts, QB, Oklahoma

  • Hurts has appeared in a few plays, but his role remains limited while Wentz gets the snaps at quarterback. Hurts could be a hybrid-style offensive player for the Eagles, akin to Taysom Hill with the New Orleans Saints.

Round 3, pick 103: Davion Taylor, OLB, Colorado

  • Taylor is playing on special teams. It is widely known that his NFL readiness at linebacker is not where the Eagles hoped it would be.

Round 4, pick 127: K’Von Wallace, S, Clemson

  • Wallace played 27 snaps against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football, making two tackles and earning more playing time. He impressed the coaching staff.

Round 4, pick 145: Jack Driscoll, OT, Auburn

  • Driscoll is trying to get in more work on offense, with the Eagles having a horribly banged-up offensive line. Three projected Week 1 starters are now out: Andre Dillard, Brandon Brooks, and more recently, Lane Johnson.

Round 5, Pick 168: John Hightower, WR Boise State

  • Hightower made a crucial fourth-down catch in the Sunday win over the 49ers in San Francisco, a boost to the team and Hightower’s own sense of confidence.

Round 6, pick 196: Shaun Bradley, LB, Temple

  • Bradley is getting a lot of work on special teams, but he made the roster, which is great for a pick this low in the draft.

Round 6, pick 200: Quez Watkins, WR, Southern Miss

  • Watkins has not seen much action and is in roster limbo at this point.

Round 6, pick 210: Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn*

  • Wanogho is on the practice squad, and the fact that he is an offensive lineman on a team with a lot of O-line injuries indicates that his progress has been slow and ultimately inadequate.

Round 7, pick 233: Casey Toohill, DE, Stanford

  • Toohill has overachieved and has managed to get a spot on the roster, but he was inactive versus the 49ers, replaced by Genard Avery, who played really well. Toohill might find it hard to play a lot of snaps in the coming weeks, but he has still exceeded expectations for a pick in the seventh round.

*Has been signed to the practice squad.

TOP 5 MEMORABLE EAGLES HEAD COACHES

  1. DOUG PEDERSON, 2016-PRESENT

Record: 43-30-1 through Week 4 of this season

Playoff Appearances: three

Pederson failed to win each of the first three games of this current 2020 season, but his team rebounded in a big way by upsetting the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers this past Sunday. Pederson is the only Eagle coach to win a Super Bowl. He has that permanent place in franchise history as the man who broke the Super Bowl title drought.

Yet, if the Eagles crater this season and fall to a 6-9-1 or 5-10-1 record, it is possible that Pederson will be fired – not likely, but possible. If the Eagles don’t rebound this season, and if they don’t figure things out in 2021, Pederson will likely be gone. It would remind everyone how cruel and temporary an NFL existence really is. Pederson was brilliant in 2017 and 2018, but he lost his way in 2019 and is scrambling to get it back in 2020.

  1. ANDY REID, 1999-2012

Record: 140-102-1

Playoff Appearances: nine

Reid didn’t win the Super Bowl, but he gave the Eagles a very consistent and productive decade. He made four straight NFC Championship Games, a remarkable feat for any coach at any time. The problem with Reid was how often he lost in those NFC title games. He lost to the Rams, Buccaneers and Panthers in consecutive seasons, one stop short of the Super Bowl.

Reid lost another NFC Championship Game to the Arizona Cardinals. Reid has taken the same consistency he developed in Philadelphia and transferred it to Kansas City, where the Chiefs have been an annual playoff team. Reid will be in the Hall of Fame one day.

  1. DICK VERMEIL, 1976-1982

Record: 57-51

Playoff Appearances: four

The Eagles had done nothing for a decade and a half when Vermeil arrived in 1976. He patiently built the team into a playoff squad in his first three years on the job. In his fifth season, 1980, everything came together and the Eagles made their first Super Bowl. They made the playoffs four straight years. Only Reid has been able to replicate that feat among other Eagle coaches. Vermeil was the first coach in the Super Bowl era who enabled Eagle fans to believe in their team.

  1. EARLE “GREASY” NEALE, 1941-1950

Record: 66-44-5

Playoff Appearances: three

Neale is the first great coach in Eagle history, the man who won the franchise’s first two NFL titles and who led the team to the NFL Championship Game in three straight seasons from 1947 through 1949.

 

  1. BUCK SHAW, 1958-1960

Record: 20-16-1

Playoff Appearances: one

Shaw made only one playoff appearance with the Eagles, but it was a great one. Shaw won the 1960 NFL Championship Game over Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers, giving the Eagles their last NFL title until the 2017 team captured the Super Bowl.

TOP 5 MEMORABLE EAGLES PLAYERS

  1. CHUCK BEDNARIK, 1949-1962

10-time NFL First-Team All-Pro, 2-time NFL champion

Playoff Appearances: two

Chuck Bednarik is the most beloved Eagle of all time. “Concrete Charlie” was one of the last of the great two-way players at a time when playing both offense and defense was normal. Bednarik played college football in the city of Philadelphia as a member of the University of Pennsylvania. He was a native son of the state of Pennsylvania. He was born there and died there.

He is one of the very few Eagles who was part of both the 1949 and 1960 championship teams. His hit of New York Giants superstar running back Frank Gifford is one of the most iconic hits in NFL history. It caused Gifford to miss an entire season and is always recalled as a prime example of the violence of football. Philadelphians love tough athletes, and Chuck Bednarik was as tough as they come.

  1. BRIAN DAWKINS, 1996-2008

NFC champion, four-time NFL First-Team All-Pro

Playoff Appearances: eight

Nicknamed “Weapon X,” Dawkins is the modern fan favorite for Eagles Nation. He was the soul of the Eagles’ defense for over a decade, much as Bednarik was several decades earlier. Dawkins is considered one of the greatest safeties of all time. He was the combative yet very effective leader of both the secondary and the larger defensive unit.

He made sure unity and cohesion were maintained at all times. Because he was there in the back line guiding the defense and making sure everyone was in the right position, head coach Andy Reid didn’t need to worry too much about his team’s defense. He could focus more on the offense, and the larger roster functioned extremely well, enough for Dawkins to make the playoffs eight times and reach the Eagles’ second Super Bowl in the 2004 season.

Dawkins mentored players in the Eagles’ organization and won undying respect of everyone in the business, not just Philadelphia players. Fans, journalists, opponents – they all respect Brian Dawkins.

  1. REGGIE WHITE, 1985-1992

Eight-time NFL First Team All-Pro

Playoff Appearances: four

Philadelphia fans love aggressive, nasty athletes when they are on their own team, and Reggie White – much like Chuck Bednarik – fit that description perfectly. White is one of the greatest and most influential NFL players of all time, a man who reinvented pass rush techniques and was nearly impossible to stop. He formed the core of the ferocious Buddy Ryan-coached defenses which terrorized the NFL in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

  1. ZACH ERTZ, 2013-PRESENT

Super Bowl champion

Playoff Appearances: four

Lots of Eagles on the Super Bowl LII championship team will be remembered fondly, but of them all, Ertz might be the one with the best career and the person who gains the deepest place in the memories of Eagle fans. Nick Foles was the backup quarterback who improbably defeated Tom Brady, and Carson Wentz was the starting quarterback for the 2017 Eagles at the beginning of the season, but Ertz was the consistent and constant figure as a dependable tight end who made big plays in the regular season, the playoffs, and the Super Bowl itself.

 

  1. RON JAWORSKI, 1977-1986

1980 NFC Player Of The Year, NFC champion

Playoff appearances: four

Jaworski, known widely by his nickname, “Jaws,” has established continued fame as an NFL analyst after his playing days. That has kept him popular, but he built his popularity in Philadelphia after playing for the Los Angeles Rams earlier in his NFL career. Jaworski developed a great rapport with then-coach Dick Vermeil in the late 1970s. They evolved together as the Eagles steadily improved and, in 1980, put together their best season to make the franchise’s first Super Bowl.

Philadelphia lost Super Bowl XV to the Oakland Raiders, but Philadelphia still had a season for the ages, capped by beating hated archrival Dallas in the NFC Championship Game, still the most treasured win in the past 50 years of Eagles history other than the Super Bowl LII championship. Whereas Donovan McNabb, the quarterback of the Eagles’ Super Bowl XXXIX team, had a more contentious and confusing relationship with Philadelphians, Jaworski’s reputation is unblemished in the City of Brotherly Love.

EAGLES VS. COWBOYS RIVALRY

The Eagles entered the NFL in 1933, and the Cowboys entered the league in 1960. When Dallas became an NFL franchise, the Eagles were in the process of winning the 1960 NFL title. The Eagles had the upper hand in the first few matchups, but when the mid-1960s arrived, Dallas coach Tom Landry finally unlocked the talent of his young roster and began a dynasty which lasted for nearly two full decades. The Cowboys missed the playoffs just once from 1966 through 1983, all while the Eagles began a long period of stagnation in the mid-1960s which lasted until the late 1970s. The Cowboys went 17-3 against the Eagles in the 1970s, but when Philadelphia coach Dick Vermeil arrived in 1976, the Eagles steadily improved and, in 1980, won their first NFC East Division championship, bumping the Cowboys out of first place. The most significant game ever contested between these two teams was the 1980 NFL season’s NFC Championship Game, played in January of 1981. The Eagles hosted the game due to their first-place division finish and beat the Cowboys to make their first Super Bowl appearance.

When Landry got old and the Cowboys’ long run of dominance ended, Philadelphia enjoyed a period of prosperity in the late 1980s under coach Buddy Ryan. The Eagles had a few years in which they were dramatically better. Then came the early 1990s, and a series of trades which built Dallas into a superpower. The Cowboys won three Super Bowls in a four-year period from 1992 through 1995. The Cowboys won back the bragging rights in the rivalry. However, Dallas hasn’t been back to the Super Bowl since the 1995 season. Over the past 25 years, Philadelphia has usually been the better team, winning a majority of head-to-head matchups and also claiming more NFC East championships. The Eagles won five division titles in six seasons, from 2001 through 2006, while the Cowboys didn’t win a single NFC East crown in that same span of time.

Over the past 11 seasons dating back to 2009, the Eagles and Cowboys have won four division titles apiece. The two teams have won six of the last seven NFC East titles, three each, with the only exception being the 2015 season. The head-to-head stands at 69-53 in favor of the Cowboys.
