Philadelphia Eagles fans don't want to read another intro that starts by referencing recent results, so let's just look forward, shall we?
The Eagles get the Monday Night Football spotlight in Week 15 with a matchup against the Seattle Seahawks that should have some major implications on the NFC playoff picture.
In another high-stakes game, the Eagles aren't getting much love from the betting markets.
Eagles vs. Seahawks Odds Week 15
The Eagles are 3.5-point favorites over the Seahawks, with -196 moneyline odds in a game that features a 48-point over/under.
Being projected to win is nice, but this is not a game that should only see three of four points separate the two sides. A prediction of the game being that close isn't what Philly fans want to see.
The Seahawks are below .500 on the season and sit as just the No. 9 seed in the NFC. Their -38 point differential ranks only 11th in the conference. They allow opponents to gain an average of 5.5 yards per play, which is the ninth-highest average in the NFL.
And on the betting side, Seattle is coming up an average of 1.7 points short of the point spread.
So as a Super Bowl hopeful, you'd really want to see Philly favored by something closer to a full touchdown than to a field goal.
This isn't the first time the Eagles have been overlooked in the odds this season, though. They've covered the spread in 63.6% of their games, which is actually the third-highest rate in the NFL. So it wouldn't be a big surprise if this was just another case of the Eagles being underrated.
