Betting On The Philadelphia Eagles To Win Super Bowl 2020
The Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl 2020 betting odds were in their favor to start the season. As one of the most famous franchises in the NFL, the Eagles had not won a Super Bowl until recently. The Eagles entered this season having lost Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles to free agency after opting to stick with Carson Wentz as the starting quarterback. This, despite Foles’ hardware and incredible performance in the Super Bowl. Wentz has been long heralded as one of the next great quarterbacks in the league, but he’s entering the phase of his career where he has to prove himself and be more than just a potential great.
In a battle for possibly the worst division in the league, the Eagles and Cowboys kept bettors concerned and interested about who would make the playoffs. While Philadelphia was heralded as the team to easily make the playoffs, their subpar 2019 NFL season is being met with real critics. Still, the Super Bowl betting odds for the Eagles present an opportunity for the locals and believers to lay their hard-earned money on the line.
Philadelphia Eagles Affected By Coronavirus
Fortunately for the Eagles, they have just one player that decided to opt-out of the season due to coronavirus concerns, and that it wide receiver, Marquise Goodwin. The Eagles currently also only have two players on their coronavirus list. The Eagles have announced that there will be no fans in attendance at their home games and that season ticket holders now have the option to opt-out of their commitment.

What Are The Eagles Odds To Win The Super Bowl?
The Eagles have seen their Super Bowl odds double from +3000 to +6600 since the start of the season as they have not been playing how they were hoping to. They got off to a rocky start to the season and just do not have the weapons that some of the other teams have to offer on offense. That being said, their Super Bowl odds will likely remain towards the bottom as there is no end in sight to their struggles.
Like their Super Bowl odds, their NFC Championship odds have dropped as well as they opened up at +1200 and took a bit of a drop to +2500. This is a pretty sizeable drop here as they clearly do not have the offensive and even defensive start power that some of the other NFC teams have to offer and it is showing as the season goes on.
The Eagles own the second shortest odds in the NFC East at +120 but that does not really say much as this is arguably the weakest division in all of the NFL. They share the division with the Washington Football Team as well as the New York Giant. Sitting ahead of the are the Cowboys who have more than enough to overpower the Eagles.
The Eagles have been able to use the NFL Draft to their advantage in recent years and are looking to keep that system going. Betting on the Eagles is very easy to do, you just need an account with an online sportsbook and you are ready to bet. You’ll find plenty of NFL Draft odds that you will be able to bet on.
The Philadelphia Eagles finished their season with an average 9-7 record that somehow got them into the playoffs. The Eagles projected win total for the 2020 season is set at 9.5 wins. They don’t have the highest expectations set on them but this is enough for them to get the ball rolling and prove that they can win. The Eagles are looking to make those who bet on them happy.
Betting On Eagles Team Props
The Eagles have been on a roll and their team is jelling pretty well. This is why placing team props on your Eagles is an awesome idea! You can place a team prop bet on if the defensive unit will get a certain number of sacks in the game, or pick the exact result for an even greater payout. Your bet would be determined from all the players on defense and if they can come out and put together a team effort, winning money is that easy.
2020 Eagles Player Prop Bets
The Eagles have not had the best of luck with their offense over the years but seem to be getting back on track for the 2020 season. They are praying that Carson Wentz could remain healthy and are also looking for sparks from their receiving core such as newly drafted, Jalen Reagor, Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert as well as their running back Miles Sanders.
Wentz is coming off just his second healthy season since being in the league and he did not disappoint. Wentz put up 4,039 yards and 27 touchdowns, both of which are good for top ten in the league. His season totals for 2020 are projected at 3899.5 yards and 27.5 touchdowns.
Zach Ertz had a down year from his 2018 outing as he put up 916 yards and six touchdowns through his 2019 campaign. Online sportsbooks have taken note of Ertz’s slight fall and have his season totals at 899.5 yards with the under favored and 7.5 touchdowns also with the under favored.
Jalen Reagor is stepping into an offense that is desperate for a spark at the wide receiver position. Reagor is a rookie wideout who had just 611 yards and five touchdowns during his final year at TCU. NFL betting sites have his season totals set at 700.5 yards with the under favored and 4.5 touchdowns.
Miles Sanders is being set up for a breakout season as he is stepping into the lead running back role. Sanders put up 818 yards and three touchdowns during his rookie year and is looking to exceed that in 2020. NFL sportsbooks have his season totals set at 1000.5 rushing yards.
Dallas Goedert proved his worth in the 2019 season after having a slight breakout with 607 yards and five touchdowns. Online betting sites have his season totals set at just 475.5 yards but could be poised for an even bigger breakout.
