Posted by Eric Williams on Friday,June 30, 2017 2:45, EDT in

The Philadelphia Eagles may not have reached the postseason in the first year of the Doug Pederson/Carson Wentz era, but the future looks bright in the City of Brotherly Love and for good reason.

You see, the Birds found their franchise quarterback in Wentz and wisely addressed some of the offseason needs that should help them improve in 2017.

If you want to know just how the Birds are going to fare against their 2017 win total NFL odds, then you’re going to enjoy the expert analysis you’re about to get on each and every game on Philadelphia’s upcoming 2017 schedule.

2017 NFL Picks and Win/Loss Prediction For Philadelphia Eagles

 

 

Philadelphia Eagles 2017 Win Total Odds 8.0

Week 1

Eagles at Redskins (-3)

After getting swept by Washington a year ago, the Philadelphia Eagles will be going all out to extract some revenge in their regular season opener. Unfortunately, they won’t get it as the Skins hold down the fort in this Week 1 NFC East showdown.

Week 2

Eagles at Chiefs (-4)

The Eagles will fall to 0-2 as Kansas City’s Andy Reid schools his former assistant Doug Pederson and the Chiefs defense makes like miserable for Carson Wentz.

Week 3

Giants at Eagles (-1)

The Birds and G-Men split their two regular season meetings a year ago with both teams winning at home. Expect more of the same from these longtime division rivals in 2017. Philly gets the home win.

Week 4

Eagles at Chargers (-1.5)

This looks like a matchup the Eagles can win, but I don;t believe they will as Philip Rivers out-guns Carson Wentz in a shootout.

Week 5

Cardinals at Eagles (-2)

Arizona running back David Johnson will be the best player on the field in this Week 5 NFC clash and Arizona will get the road win because of it.

Week 6

Eagles at Panthers (-4)

Carolina is looking to get back to being a legitimate Super Bowl contender and will hold it down at home against the Birds in a thriller.

Week 7

Redskins at Eagles (-2.5)

Simply put, Philly gets some revenge after dropping three straight against the Skins.

Week 8

49ers at Eagles (-7.5)

At this point, the Eagles will need an easy win. Thank goodness the lowly Niners are visiting.

Week 9

Broncos at Eagles (-1)

The Philadelphia Eagles may be playing at home in this Week 9 Inter-conference matchup, but they’ll lose a heartbreaker because of Denver’s elite defense.

Week 10

BYE

Week 11

Eagles at Cowboys (-7)

The Boys and Birds split their two regular season meetings in 2016 with both teams winning at home. Again, you should expect another split in 2017 between these hated rivals.

Chicago foolishly gave up an arm and a leg to take the inexperienced Mitchell Trubisky with the second overall pick in the draft.

Week 12

Bears at Eagles (-6)

Carson Wentz may be young, but he’s going to show the Bears what a real franchise quarterback looks like after Chicago foolishly gave up an arm and a leg to take the inexperienced Mitchell Trubisky with the second overall pick in the draft.

Week 13

Eagles at Seahawks (-7)

The Eagles will show up and they’ll give a great effort, but I’m thinking Seattle runs the table at home in 2017.

Week 14

Eagles (-1.5) at Rams

If the Rams aren’t kicking themselves for passing up on Wentz to grab Jared Goff with the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft, they will be after this Week 14 affair.

Week 15

Eagles at Giants (-3.5)

New York wins at home to get the regular season split against Philly.

Week 16

Raiders (-1) at Eagles

The high-scoring Raiders don’t play much defense, but they usually don’t have to the way they can score the ball. Oakland wins a shootout in the City of Brotherly Love as Derek Carr out-duels Carson Wentz.

Week 17

Cowboys at Eagles

Last but not least, while I’m expecting Dallas to be desperate in this Week 17 regular season finale, I like Philadelphia to close out its 2017 campaign on a positive note by beating the hated Cowboys to potentially end their postseason hopes.

While I’ve got the Eagles winning six games here, I’ll admit that the more likely scenario is that the Birds win either seven or eight games. Still, because of their treacherous 2017 schedule, I don;t see Philadelphia reaching the 9-win mark to top their win total odds.
