Eagles 2022 NFL Season Betting Prediction: Win/Loss Record
2022-23 NFL Regular Season
- When: Sep. 8, 2022 – Jan. 8, 2023
- Philadelphia Eagles Total Win / Loss Total Odds: 8 ½
Why the Philadelphia Eagles will win more than 8 games
Philadelphia improved on both sides of the ball. On offense, the Eagles traded for one of the best wide receivers in the NFL when they acquired A.J. Brown from the Tennessee Titans.
Brown is a game changing wide out. He’s almost impossible to cover one-on-one. A.J. joins a receiving corps that includes Devonta Smith, the 2020 Heisman Trophy winner, and underrated tight end Dallas Goedert.
On defense, Philadelphia signed strong safety Jaquiski Tartt. The former San Francisco 49er is a great run stopping, blitzing safety, who also has terrific cover skills. The defense is deep and improved from game to game last season. So expect a big time improvement with Tartt on the field.
Why the Philadelphia Eagles won’t win more than 8 games
Philly improved across the board except at the most important position, quarterback. Jalen Hurts is an okay quarterback, but he will have to step it up big time if Philadelphia hopes to win 9 games.
Hurts threw 16 touchdowns to 9 interceptions. He completed less than 62% of his passes. He rushed for 5.6 yards per carry, but he fumbled 4 times.
If Hurts doesn’t improve, it won’t matter that A.J. Brown, Devonta Smith, and Dallas Goedert are on the field at the same time. It won’t matter how well Philly’s defense plays.
Final Betting Analysis: Will the Philadelphia Eagles win at least 9 games?
Oddsmakers have a real bead on how many games Philadelphia will win. At first glance, 9 victories seems more than probable.
But a deep dive reveals that Philadelphia should have trouble reaching 8 wins. First, the schedule isn’t easy. Both Washington and the New York Giants are much better this season.
So we can’t say the Eagles sweep the Giants in 2022. Also, beating Dallas won’t be easy.
New Orleans isn’t. Neither are the Vikings. Green Bay is likely a loss. At Arizona in Week 5 is a toss-up.
If we assume the Eagles win their 3 home games versus division rivals Dallas, Washington, and the New York Giants, and we also assume Philadelphia beats the Lions and the Texans, we’re up to 5 wins.
Let’s throw in Jacksonville, bringing us to 6 wins. We can assume the Eagles will beat Minnesota in week 2 or Pittsburgh in week 8, which are both home games.
Now we’ve got 7 wins. Where will the eighth win come from? At Arizona, at Chicago, at home versus New Orleans or at home versus Tennessee are the likeliest wins. But it’s hard to see Philadelphia winning 3-of-4 or even 2-of-4.
So at the end of our analysis, the Eagles win 8 games. Going under makes sense.
