One year after winning Super Bowl 52, the Philadelphia Eagles had a solid season in 2018 by going 9-7 to reach the playoffs where they beat the upstart Chicago Bears before falling to New Orleans in the divisional round. Now, as they get set for the upcoming 2019 season, the Birds are hoping to soar again, but this season will be unlike their past two campaigns now that Super Bowl-winning backup Nick Foles has taken over as the starter in Jacksonville, leaving talented, but oft-injured franchise signal-caller Carson Wentz as the unquestioned starter in Philly.
Will Wentz stay healthy while helping the Birds get back to being a legitimate Super Bowl threat or will Philly fail to live up to their Super Bowl aspirations in 2019?
If you’re an NFL betting aficionado that wants to know just how many games the Eagles are going to win so you could potentially cash in on the value-packed NFL Win Total Odds, then consider your ticket punched!
Thanks to the expert NFL predictions that you’re about to get on each and every game on Philadelphia’s upcoming 2019 docket, you’re going to have a great idea of just how many games the Eagles will win this coming season.
The Eagles finished the 2018 campaign ranked a modest 18th in scoring (22.9 ppg) while finishing an encouraging 12th in points allowed (21.8 ppg). The bad news is that the Birds also ranked a dismal 28th in rushing and 30th against the pass.
To address their offseason needs, Philadelphia drafted Washington State tackle Andre Dillard with the 22n overall pick before adding Penn State wide receiver Miles Sanders and Stanford wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, both in the second round. The Eagles also added former Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson, former Tampa Bay defensive end Vinny Curry and former Steelers linebacker L.J. Fort, among others, in free agency.
Philadelphia Eagles 2019 NFL Season Win/Loss Total Odds & Betting Prediction
- Philadelphia Eagles 2019 Win Total Odds: 9.5
- 2018 Wins: 9
Week 1 vs Washington
The Birds swept the Skins a year ago and I like them to take care of business at home in their regular season opener. Win. 1-0.
Week 2 at Atlanta
The Falcons get some payback for the pair of crushing losses they suffered the last two times they’ve faced Philly. Loss. 1-1.
Week 3 vs Detroit
The Lions are inferior on both sides of the ball. Win. 2-1.
Week 4 at Green Bay
The Eagles have the big edge on defense and that’s why they’ll get the huge road win here over Aaron Rodgers and company. Win. 3-1.
Week 5 vs NY Jets
I like Sam Darnold a lot, but the Jets definitely aren’t in the same class of legitimate Super Bowl contenders as Philadelphia. Win. 4-1.
Week 6 at Minnesota
After losing to the Eagles 23-21 in Philly in Week 5 a year ago, the Vikings extract some revenge in another nail-biter. Loss. 4-2.
Week 7 at Dallas
The Eagles lose their third straight against the ‘Boys after getting swept by Dallas a year ago. Loss. 4-3.
Week 8 at Buffalo
LeSean McCoy will be happy to see many of his former teammates, but the rest of the Buffalo Bills won’t be happy to see Philly come into town for this Week 8 affair. Win. 5-3.
Week 9 vs Chicago
The Eagles narrowly got past the Bears 16-15 in their NFC wild card matchup a year ago, but I’m thinking Chicago gets some payback in this Week 9 meeting despite being on the road. Loss. 5-4.
Week 10 BYE
Week 11 vs New England
The Birds will be going all-out to get the win in what looks like a statement-making kind of affair to me. After beating the Pats in Super Bowl 52, I say the Birds repeat the feat. Win. 6-4.
Week 12 vs Seattle
Carson Wentz is very good, but Russell Wilson is great. Despite being at home in Week 12, Philly falls to Seattle in an absolute thriller. Loss. 6-5.
Week 13 at Miami
If the Eagles don’t have this game well in hand by the time halftime rolls around, I’ll be completely and utterly shocked. Win. 7-5.
Week 14 vs NY Giants
The Birds win their third straight against the lesser G-Men after getting the sweep last season. Win. 8-5.
Week 15 at Washington
There will be no sweep when the Birds visit the nation’s capitol to take on a Skins team that was semi-respectable in winning seven games a year ago. Loss. 8-6.
Week 16 vs Dallas
The Eagles get some big-time payback to beat the Cowboys in Week 16 and give their playoff hopes a big boost! Win. 9-6.
Week 17 at NY Giants
I really want to pick Saquon Barkley and the Giants to get the big win here, but Philly is going to be desperate to reach the postseason and that’s why the Birds will get the W. Win. 10-6.
I’ve got the Eagles winning 10 games to top their 2019 O/U win total odds, but I believe they could win 11 games or more with nine victories being the minimum Philly will win in 2019. Lest anyone forget, Carson Wentz was playing at an MVP-caliber level two years ago before he suffered a torn ACL and I believe, two years later, he’ll get back to looking like that player in 2019.
