The Philadelphia Eagles were getting no respect early in the season despite being 2-0 and the reigning NFC champions. They weren’t happy with their own play, but the coverage they were getting was ridiculous. Monday’s blowout win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers changed things, though.
Now the Eagles are starting to get the respect they deserve.
Here’s a look at what the opening odds are projecting for Philadelphia’s Week 4 NFC East showdown with the Washington Commanders (hint: it’s good for Philly).
Eagles vs Commanders Opening Odds Week 4
Playing at home for their first divisional clash of the year, the Eagles are favored by more than a touchdown (8.5-point spread) and are -400 on the moneyline. The over/under of 45.5 total points doesn’t predict much of a shootout, but this does project a blowout. The implied final score projection from these lines is a 27-18.5 win for Philly.
The Commanders may be 2-1, but it’s not hard to see why the betting markets are predicting the Eagles move to 4-0 with an easy win.
Washington’s two wins this season came against two of the NFL’s weakest teams in the Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos, and those two wins only came by a combined 6 points. The only time the Commanders played a playoff-caliber opponent, they got crushed 37-3 by the Buffalo Bills.
Philadelphia stumbled out of the blocks a bit in Week 1, but its +8.3-point average scoring margin is still the seventh-best in the NFL, while Washington ranks 28th at -9.3 points per game.
Jalen Hurts and co. are starting to click and another victory seems to be in the cards for Week 4.
