The long wait is over and the Philadelphia Eagles finally have their 2024 regular-season schedule. As the Eagles embark on their journey to erase the bad taste their 2023 campaign left in fans' mouths, Philadelphia has to start the season on the right foot. A slow start will bring heavier-than-usual criticism after the epic collapse in the 2023 season.

Therefore, it is of utmost importance to start the season with a win. The Eagles will have to do that in Brazil as they are scheduled to play the Green Bay Packers there in Week 1. In the first NFL game in South America, the Eagles open the season on a Friday night for the first time ever.

Amidst all the uncertainty about how this unusual Week 1 game is going to look like, sportsbooks have released the odds for the matchup. On FanDuel Sportsbook, the Eagles are slightly favored against the Packers.

Packers vs. Eagles Week 1 Odds

  • Spread: Packers +1.5 (-110)/Eagles -1.5 (-110)
  • Moneyline: Packers (+104)/Eagles (-120)
  • Total: 47.5 (Over -115/Under -1)

This is a sign that the betting market is high on the Eagles to start the season. Despite the fact that the Green Bay Packers finished last year on a higher note and that they have one of the best young QBs in the game in Jordan Love, they are seen as the underdogs against Philadelphia.

This is in line with where oddsmakers see the Eagles in terms of their chances to win the Super Bowl. Currently, Philadelphia has the seventh-best odds in the NFL with +1400, while division rivals the Cowboys lag behind them. The Packers, on the other hand, are given the tenth-best odds at +1900.

If the Eagles manage to start the year with a win, this will be a big statement to the rest of the league.
