The Philadelphia Eagles are one of two NFL franchises in the NFL. One of the oldest teams in the league, Eagles fans have not had much reason to celebrate until recently when the team finally won their first Super Bowl.
While the team took a bit of a downturn in 2018, they are looking to bounce back in 2019 and make a repeat trip to the Super Bowl. Online sports betting will launch later in 2019, and once that happens, fans will have plenty of options for Philadelphia Eagles betting. Learn more about this franchise, including the outlook for the team next season and whether Vegas is giving the Philadelphia Eagles odds off winning it all.
Super Bowl LII Champs Looking to Get Back to the Promise Land
The Philadelphia Eagles are one of the oldest teams in football, dating back to 1933. In the years pre-dating the league merger, the Eagles three NFL Championships in 1948, 1949, and 1960. However, after the merger, the team had lacked success over the years. They made it to the Super Bowl in 1980 and 2004 but both times lost.
That all changed in 2017 when the Eagles won Super Bowl LII behind backup quarterback Nick Foles. The team came back in 2018 and struggled to make the playoffs, finishing 9-7, but did manage to make the Wild Card Game and win it. They then lost the Divisional Playoff game to the New Orleans Saints.
The Eagles have a tremendous fan following, and many consider Eagles fans to be among the most passionate and even the most intimidating fans in all of the NFL. Every Eagles game at Lincoln Financial Field has sold out since 1999, and we expect those fans to be at the front of the line once Philadelphia Eagles betting begins at online sportsbooks later this year.
Outlook for the Eagles in 2019 and beyond
The biggest story of the Eagles offseason was Nick Foles leaving to sign a contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, he wasn’t the only player to leave. Jordan Matthews, Jordan Hicks, and Golden Tate went to other teams, and Haloti Ngata retired. Chris Maragos was also cut.
Due to the additional salary cap room, the Eagles picked up DT Malik Jackson, LB L.J. Fort, S Andrew Sendejo, and DE Vinny Curry. Some experts believe that the Eagles are the most improved team coming out of free agency, but others, including Las Vegas, feel otherwise.
The current Philadelphia Eagles odds for wins in 2019 is 9.5, which means that they don’t expect the Eagles to do much better than last year. We have a similar outlook. While the Eagles picked up some nice pieces, we don’t see enough for them to be much more than a 9-7 or 10-6 team in 2019. This should still be enough to contend, and even win the NFC East.
Beyond 2019, Carson Wentz and company need to rediscover the formula that got them to the Super Bowl in 2017, and that may be a couple of years away.
