Phialdelphia Eagles Postseason Betting Analysis


One of the stranger quirks in recent NFL history is seeing the team that lost in the Super Bowl struggle to even get back to the playoffs on the following season. 2024 MyBookie Sportsbook NFL Odds, American Football NFL Lines | Philadelphia Eagles Postseason Betting Analysis

There is a growing list of teams that have suffered that fate, proving that getting close to the summit once is zero guarantee of getting there again. It’s tough to understand why it happens, but just a few changes to a squad can make all the difference between being a Super Bowl challenger and a team that misses out on the postseason. The Philadelphia Eagles were able to avoid that fate this season, but you do have to say that their regular season performance was not to the level that most of us expected. They will enter the playoffs as the #5 seed in the NFC, but can they repeat their run from last year? Let’s take a closer look.

Regular Season Recap

The start of the season saw the Eagles pick up exactly where they left off last year, opening things up with an impressive 5-game win streak that ended with a surprise loss on the road to the New York Jets. They did not let that loss trouble them, though, as they went out and delivered another 5-game win streak, setting themselves up as the team to beat in the NFC. That, though, is where things changed.

That streak came to an end in dramatic fashion, with the Eagles losing 3 in a row, including defeats at the hands of the 49ers and Cowboys, a pair of teams that they may have to face if they get past the Wild Card Round this weekend. They snapped out of that funk with a win over the Giants, but then closed out the regular season with 2 straight losses, which is not the ideal way to be heading into the postseason.

Stats, Trends, and Odds

When you look at the offensive stats, particularly for Jalen Hurts in the passing game, they are somewhat skewed. Hurts is a dual threat QB, so his passing numbers tend to be lower than other elite QBs. Still, he averaged 225 YPG through the air, with the ground game delivering 128 YPG, good for 8th overall. The Eagles were in the top 10 in points per game with a touch over 25, but they were down near the bottom in points allowed per game, also at 25. That defense needs to be better if they are to make another deep run.

Being the #5 seed means having to go on the road in the postseason, with the Eagles set to open up in Tampa. The Eagles were 5-4 away from home this season, but one of those wins came on the road versus the Buccaneers, so they are certainly going to like their chances of getting out of the Wild Card Round.

The odds for the Eagles to win the conference and the Super Bowl have lengthened over the course of the season, particularly in the second half. They are favored to win this weekend, but they are sitting at +750 to win the NFC and at +1600 to win the Super Bowl. If they can tighten things up on the defensive side of things, I would not entirely count the Eagles out.
