Washington at Philadelphia Week 7 NFL Odds & Betting Pick for MNF

Washington at Philadelphia Week 7 NFL Odds & Betting Pick for MNF

Written by on October 20, 2017

Anyone who follows football is acutely aware of the fact that the teams who win regularly in the NFL are the ones that have an elite QB at their disposal. It’s why quarterbacks are the ones most commonly chosen with the first pick of the draft, as every team that gets to make that pick is usually searching for the franchise QB who will turn their fortunes around, such as the NFL odds favorite Philadelphia Eagles. The fans were not sold on Carson Wentz when he was taken second overall in the draft, but he is quickly proving that he was indeed a solid pick.Kirk Cousins of the Washington Redskins went in the 4th round and has become one of the most sought after QB’s in the league, especially as the Redskins seem unwilling to tie him down to a long-term deal. These two QB’s will go head to head in an NFC East clash on Monday night that may well go a long way towards deciding how this division plays out. The Eagles are in as a 4 ½ point home favorite in the NFL lines, while the point total for this one has been set at 49.

Why bet on the Washington Redskins?

There is still a lot of football to be played, but it is increasingly looking as though it will be these two teams who will be duking it out for the top spot in the NFC East. The Redskins come into this one at 3-2, although they did make getting over .500 tough, as they struggled to put away the 49ers last week in a 26-24 win. This is a team that seems to save their best for bigger opponents, as their other two wins this season have come against the LA Rams and Oakland Raiders. If they do indeed raise their game against the better teams, then we can perhaps expect them to put on a show on Monday night, no matter what the Week 7 MNF Odds says.The Redskins are a team that also seem to thrive on the road, as they have gone 10-3 ATS in their last 13 road games. They are 5-1 SU in their last 6 meetings with the Eagles and are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 visits to Philadelphia.

Why bet on the Philadelphia Eagles?

With a win in this game, the Eagles could really start to open up an unassailable lead at the top of the NFC East. Philly comes into this game with a 5-1 record, and they would be very tough to catch if they can get a win over the team sitting right behind them. While the Eagles have not, for the most part at least, delivered massive wins, they continually find a way to win the close ones, with 4 of their last 5 games decided by a TD or less.According to the Week 7 MNF Odds, the Eagles are slight favorites vs. Redskins.They already have a win over the Redskins this year, beating them 30-17 on the road in the opening week of the season. Philadelphia has won 4 of their last 5 games at home, and are a very impressive 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games in their own building. Their win over the Redskins in the opening week was their first win over Washington in 6 attempts, and they have only gone 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings with their division rival.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The stats here would all seem to point to a Washington win, but I think the first meeting between these two teams proved that the tide has turned in the favor of the Eagles. I like Philadelphia to back their NFL odds for Week 7 and cover here, and I believe the total will go UNDER.Score: Washington Redskins 20 – Philadelphia Eagles 28
