It’s expected that the race to the bottom will be slow and painful. But it’s also the case for the race to the top of the woeful NFC East.
During their Week Nine bye, the Philadelphia Eagles’ futures odds actually improved. Hey, that’s just how things are in 2020. When they returned, the Eagles reminded backers and fans who they were. They didn’t put up much of a fight in a lackluster 27-17 loss to the New York Giants.
Twitter showed no mercy on the Eagles’ poor play and head coach Doug Pederson‘s questionable play-calling.
Eagles disappoint bettors and fans
Figures at FanDuel for Eagles vs. Giants:
- 51% of the money was on the Giants (-5) to cover the spread
- 58% of the money was on the Giants on the moneyline
- 75% of the money was on the OVER (44.5)
At BetRivers, the Giants (+5, +200 ML) were backed by 29% of ML handle and 39% of spread handle.
The Eagles disappointed fans and backers. They moved to 3-6 ATS. The Giants are 7-3 ATS.
Doug Pederson’s play-calling
What was once a thing of beauty has now turned to a source of ire for fans.

It was another rough day for quarterback Carson Wentz, who threw for 208 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. He finished the day with a QB rating of 72.8.

Carson Wentz didn't play hero ball today.
Carson Wentz followed the gameplan to a T today.
Carson Wentz showed just how bad Doug Pederson's gameplan are.
The Philadelphia Eagles not hiring an offensive coordinator was easily a worst move than drafting Hurts in the 2nd round
