Market Watch81% of the bets on the Eagles.
Bottom LineWhen we take a closer look at this matchup, it becomes crystal clear that the only side worth considering is Philadelphia. The Redskins are near the bottom of the league in virtually every important category, and the team is headed for big changes in the offseason.
We could analyze specific matchups, but how much does it matter if Washington is going to mail in the final two weeks? Does it make a difference if they are on national TV? I doubt it. In fact, the Eagles might win this game on special teams alone, where they still rank 1st in the league. Washington are dead last in that area, just like they were a year ago. And I wouldn't worry too much about the Eagles defense after last week. Washington's OL is one of the worst in the league, so the Eagles front should be able to give their secondary the kind of support they need.
I think Philly is a great option for a teaser this week, but I'm not going to get involved in the side unless we get a -7. Even then, I'd probably have to pass.
