Philadelphia Eagles Season Preview

Today in our ongoing effort to bring you 2018 season previews we look at the Eagles. In this Philadelphia Eagles season preview you will see what it will take to repeat. In addition, we will cover current Eagles betting odds for Super Bowl 2019. The Philadelphia Eagles surprised a lot of people last season by winning the Super Bowl, a year after going 7-9. The Eagles finished the 2017 season 13-3, tied for the best record in the NFL.  They made their Super Bowl run with Nick Foles filling in for Carson Wentz.  Wentz suffered a season-ending injury late in the season.

Despite last season’s success, the Eagles have the second best odds of winning the Super Bowl (8-1). Then the New England Patriots, the team they defeated in the Super Bowl. They will have a tougher time winning the Super Bowl this season because they will not be able to sneak up on teams like they did last year.  Eagles will likely get every opponent’s best effort every game they play during the season.

So, can the Eagles repeat as NFC East and Super Bowl 2019 champions?

The simple answer to that is yes.

The NFC East will be tougher  with the Dallas Cowboys expected to bounce back from their disappointing 9-7 season. The Cowboys will have Ezekiel Elliott for the entire season, after losing him for six games last season, which became a big distraction.

The Redskins feel they upgraded their quarterback position by trading for Alex Smith. However they still have a lot of question marks at the wide receiver position, and inconsistency at the running back position to be considered contenders in the division.

The New York Giants only won two games last season, but they are optimistic about their chances this season with the addition of Saquon Barkley, who was taken with the second pick in the draft, and a healthy Odell Beckham Jr. However, their offensive line is still a liability and their defense has a lot of holes, which will make it difficult for them to win the division.

With the Eagles, Wentz is expected back at some point this season.  Foles, who was the Super Bowl MVP, showed that he is capable of leading the team if needed. They will also be returning a lot of their core players, which makes them the most dangerous team in the division.

In the playoffs, home field advantage and experience make a world of difference. If the Eagles finish with the best record in the NFC, they will have a good chance of repeating. Thus concludes out 2018 Eagles betting odds review.
