You're not often going to find a 5-0 reigning conference champion getting as little respect as the Philadelphia Eagles are. They haven't been perfect this season, but they've won three of their last four by more than a touchdown, and they're one of two remaining undefeated teams in the NFL.

And yet the betting markets are still giving them no love with the Week 6 opening odds for the Eagles vs. Jets matchup on Sunday.

Eagles vs Jets Odds Week 6

The Eagles come into their Week 6 matchup against the Jets as 6-point favorites, with -270 moneyline odds in a game with a 42-point over/under. This totally under-sells how lopsided the matchup is.

The Eagles have outscored their opponents by an average margin of 7.4 points per game this season, and the Jets are not exactly an "average" opponent, getting out-scored by 2.4 points per game themselves.

Sure, the Jets just picked up a 10-point win in Week 5, but does anyone really think success against the Denver Broncos translates to a matchup with the Eagles?

Jalen Hurts has finally rounded into form with back-to-back 300-yard passing games, and he also topped 50 rushing yards for the first time in Week 5. The defense that just allowed a 103.7 passer rating to Russell Wilson is not likely to offer much in the way of slowing Hurts down.

Nor is an offense that has relied on explosive rushing plays to pose any real threat going to scare the NFL’s No. 1 rush defense.

There was obviously no question around whether the Eagles would be favorites in this matchup, but it's truly surprising to see them not favored by at least a full touchdown, even though it's a road game.
