The NFC East is legendarily bad, and it’s been the worst division in the NFL for a couple of years.
WFT won it with a 7-9 record last season.
Here are three plus-money options you can bet on the Eagles win total at BetMGM:
Over 7.5 +120: These odds imply a 45.45% probability new coach Nick Sirianni can hit the eight-win mark. An 8-9 record would still be a losing season, but it would be a winning wager for Eagles backers.
Over 8.5 +180: A 9-8 season is more feasible than it is reasonable. Betting on the Eagles to be a winning team in the first year of a rebuild is not for the faint of heart. You have to be very confident in both Hurts and Sirianni to bet this number.
Over 9.5 +310: This is a perfect example of how to attack a market in multiple ways. If you hold the optimistic position that the Eagles will win 10 games, it can be advantageous to bet into correlated markets at better odds. The Eagles to win the division is at +500 or even Sirianni to win coach of the year at +5000. Ten wins could be enough to win the NFC East and a playoff appearance gets Sirianni in the conversation for coach of the year.
