2017 NFL Future Best Bet on Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles Over / Under 8 Wins
The Philadelphia Eagles went with Carson Wentz last season as a rookie and it resulted in a 7-9 record. They’re hopeful that the investment will pay dividends this season and we will easily win this 2017 NFL Future.
Philadelphia went out and got Wentz some weapons. They signed LaGarrette Blount, Alshon Jeffrey and Torrey Smith. Those additions should help the Eagles score more than the 23 points per game they averaged last season.
On defense the Eagles made a huge improvement. In the 2015 season they allowed 27 points. Last year they improved by 6 points per game allowing only 21 points per contest. They also drafted three defensive players with their first three draft picks.
Last year the Eagles were 4-2 in the division. We feel the Eagles will challenge for the AFC East title and expect them to go at least .500 in the division.
There non-division schedule is not that strong this season with those opponents posting a less than .500 record last season. Of those six contests the Eagles will be favored in four of those games and we expect them to win all four.
This season they play the AFC West. They play the Chiefs on the road in game two which will be a tough contest. They also face Oakland but that game is at home in the second last game of the year on Monday night. We project the Eagles to score three wins versus the AFC.
Summarizing our projected wins, we have them posting 3 division wins, 4 NFC non-division wins, and 3 non-conference wins. That adds up to 10 wins.
Even if we’re one game off we still have a winner.
