Philadelphia Eagles vs. Detroit Lions Week 8 Betting Odds: Birds Are Small Road Favorites Against Winless Lions

Written By Katie Kohler on October 25, 2021 - Last Updated on October 29, 2021

The Philadelphia Eagles had no luck in Las Vegas and were sinfully awful in Sin City. The Eagles (+2) scored first but the Raiders put up thirty unanswered points to head into halftime with a 30-7 lead and went on to win 33-22. Derek Carr’s 91.1% completion percentage marked a career best and the second best in NFL history. The Eagles’ defense failed to pressure Carr and didn’t sack him once and only registered two quarterback hits.

In one of the only times the Eagles (2-5) will probably be favored this season, sports betting apps opened with the Eagles as 2.5-point favorites against the winless Detroit Lions (0-7)in Week 8.
