A good part of the appeal for betting on the Eagles and the rest of the NFL is that there’s plenty of time for analyzing the numbers and researching the matchups. Odds come out early in the week, and you’ll find all of the upcoming contests and odds listed out at sportsbooks. Here’s how an Eagles line might look:
Game listings will look something like our example and have odds for three top bet types: moneyline, point spread, and totals. Moneyline odds are standalone numbers, while spreads and totals have the listed numbers and odds for the bets. Here’s what you need to know.
One of the simplest bets on the board to understand, and a great starting point for newbies as a result. All you have to do is make your pick on who you think will win the game.
Negative numbers point to the favored side, while the odds are positive for underdogs. The difference between the numbers can give you insight into the closeness of the matchup.
Spread betting adds another strategic element to each game. Beyond trying to figure out who will win, you also have to decide which side will cover the spread.
Oddsmakers set the number, and bettors can then choose the favorite minus the points or the underdog plus the spread. To win, your selection has to cover the amount of the spread.
This bet has nothing to do with winners and losers. It’s all about the total combined points that will be scored in the game in relation to the estimated total listed by sportsbooks.
Totals betting falls into distinct ranges for NFL games: 40 or less for defensive battles, 50 or more for potential shootouts, and all other contests in the middle of the two extremes.
Betting on the outcome of Eagles games is just one of the ways to get in on the action. The overall menu of NFL wagering opportunities is vast. Two of the most popular Philadelphia Eagles betting options include prop bets and the futures market.
Props are side bets, or “game inside of the game” wagers. Futures bets are on the season’s biggest games and end results. You can find available props by clicking through on the individual game listings. The offerings revolve around things that might happen during the game, such as:
Beyond the performances of individual players, props can also revolve around game or team circumstances. Examples include “Which side will have more rushing yards” and “Will the Eagles have a pick-6 in the game?”
Futures are bet you can place on an event that won’t be decided until down the road. If you click through on the NFL link at online sportsbooks and sportsbook apps, there’s usually a dedicated section for the available markets. There are a wide range of futures to consider, including:
Upon release, futures market odds are based on the way the sportsbook sees things. From there, the betting public weighs in, so there will be movement in the numbers as a result. A well-timed futures bet that comes to fruition can pay off quite handsomely.

The Eagles were slow out of the starting gate in 2020, and the club never managed to recover. After opening up the season with two straight losses, a disappointing tie versus the visiting Cincinnati Bengals dropped the mark to 0-2-1.
Philadelphia showed some life afterwards, winning three of the next five, including the last two prior to the Week 9 bye. Unfortunately, that stretch would amount to the best overall part of the campaign.
Following the break, the team dropped seven of its last eight games to finish up with a woeful mark of 4-11-1. Three of the seven losses over that span were of the double-digit variety, and the lone bright spot was a surprising road win over the New Orleans Saints.
Jalen Hurts took over behind center in Week 13, and he showed some promise after a few weeks with the keys to the offense. The dreadful run to close out the season was certainly a factor in the team’s decision to part ways with head coach Doug Pederson in the aftermath.
Here’s a look at the newest team members in the Philadelphia Eagles roster picked up in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Over the past decade, the Eagles have done a solid job in the NFL Draft overall, but there have naturally been some misses along the way. Here’s a look back at all of the first-round draft picks over the past 10 seasons in Philadelphia.
The Eagles are a team that has drafted well in recent times. That leads to optimism that the 2021 draft class will be strong, but time will tell.
With Carson Wentz traded to the Indianapolis Colts, 2020 second round pick, Jalen Hurts could be the Birds’ new starting quarterback. We’ll have to wait and see on that. For now, let’s take a look back at all of the players who have started behind center for Philadelphia over the last two decades.
Doug Pederson led the Eagles to their first-ever Super Bowl title just a few seasons ago, but was let go by the team in January after a dreadful 4-11-1 2020 season. The Eagles announced that Nick Sirianni would take up the reins as the team’s 21st full time head coach. If we look back at the last 10 head coaches in franchise history, continuity hasn’t always ruled the day.
The Eagles have played home games in the same place since 2003, but the team has had several different homes since coming into existence in 1933. The Baker Bowl was the first spot, while Veterans Stadium was the last before the current home digs. In between, the team played at three other stadiums in the area. Here are the details of the current home field.
When the Eagles play on Sunday afternoon, you can find the game in one of two main spots: CBS and FOX. The former generally handles AFC while it’s NFC on the latter, but there is a crossover for inter-conference matchups.
If it’s a prime time tilt, you can also easily find the game. FOX and NFL Network cover Thursday Night Football, NBC has Sunday Night Football, while Monday Night Football can be found on ESPN.
Each of the above networks can be found in a multitude of cable, satellite, and streaming packages. You should also be able to pick up a feed on the app of the respective networks, but know that valid login credentials from your provider will be required.
Yahoo also provides streams of select local and primetime games. DirecTV has the full Sunday Ticket package with all of the afternoon games, while NFL RedZone provides ongoing coverage throughout the day. Both of those options require a subscription.
For the Philadelphia Eagles games on broadcast networks, you can catch the action on the local affiliate in your area, all of which are listed below for your reference.
There are numerous options for your Eagles viewing pleasure, and the same holds if you’re looking to catch the audio feed of the game. Merrill Reese handles play-by-play with Mike Quick on color commentary. The flagship station is 94.1 WIP, but several other stations in the area pick up the broadcast.
You can also catch the Eagles games on TuneIn radio, which can be accessed both online and via mobile app.
The Eagles first came into existence in 1933. It took some time for things to get going, but the team began finding success in the mid-1940s. After losing the NFL Championship Game in 1947, the team went on to win back-to-back titles in 1948-49.
The team couldn’t match the success over the next decade, but the 1960 team did. Led by league MVP Norm Van Brocklin, the team defeated the Green Bay Packers to lay claim to their third NFL Championship.
That would be the last high note for quite some time. The team struck out on reaching the postseason for over a decade, but head coach Dick Vermeil helped to engineer a turnaround upon his hiring in 1976.
From 1978 through 1981, the team made it to the playoffs each season. They made it to Super Bowl XV following the 1980 season, falling to the Oakland Raiders by a score of 27-10. Vermeil stepped down after the 1982 campaign while citing burnout.
The team meandered along for the middle portion of the decade, but things started to look up towards the end of the 1980s. Head coach Buddy Ryan was in charge of a talented defense and an electrifying QB in Randall Cunningham, and the team would make it to the playoffs three straight years.
Philadelphia never quite got over the hump during this time. Rich Kotite took over after Ryan, followed by Ray Rhodes. While the team made the playoffs during both of those tenures, neither of the coaching choices proved to be a long-term fit.
Andy Reid took over in 1999 and stuck around until 2012. The team found success during his time and was a regular participant in the postseason, but winning the Super Bowl proved to be an elusive goal.
Chip Kelly got the first crack at replacing Reid, but he only managed to last two seasons. Doug Pederson had the job for five years, and the team found great success under his watch. He was the head coach for the Super Bowl-winning team in 2017, but was let go after a disappointing 2020 campaign.
Prior to last year’s misstep, the Eagles were in the postseason for three consecutive seasons. After the victory in Super Bowl LII, the club fell in the Divisional Round the following year and were bounced in the Wild Card round in 2019. Here are some of the more notable facts and figures from the history of the Eagles.
Bert Bell was the initial owner of the Eagles, and the franchise changed hands a few times from inception into the 1960s. In 1969, Leonard Tose and his partners acquired the team for $16 million. They would hold the team until 1985 when Norman Braman acquired the team for a price north of $65 million. Braman made himself quite a score less than a decade later when he sold the team to Jeffrey Lurie for $185 million in 1994.
Lurie maintains control of the team to this day, and it has proven to be quite a wise investment. Based on the latest NFL franchise valuations from Forbes, the Eagles are now worth a whopping $3.05 billion. That places them at 10th on the list of 32 teams. The Dallas Cowboys hold down the top spot at $5.5 billion, while the Buffalo Bills are in 32nd with an estimated value of $1.9 billion.
The Eagles have reached the Super Bowl three times in franchise history, winning the Big Game just once. Here’s a look back at the results from all three contests.
Super Bowl XV – Oakland Raiders over Eagles, 27-10, Jan. 25, 1981
Super Bowl XXXIX – New England Patriots over Eagles, 24-21, Feb. 6, 2005
Super Bowl LII – Eagles over New England Patriots, 41-33, Feb. 4, 2018
In the pre-merger days, the Eagles took down what was known as the NFL Championship on three occasions: 1948, 1949, and 1960.
The Eagles have retired a total of nine-player numbers thus far. Here’s a look at franchise greats on the list, listed in order by jersey number.
5 – QB Donovan McNabb
15 – HB Steve Van Buren
20 – S Brian Dawkins
40 – CB Tom Brookshier
44 – RB/WR/TE Pete Retzlaff
60 – LB/C Chuck Bednarik
70 – OT Al Wistert
92 – DE Reggie White
99 – DT Jerome Brown
Currently at the top of the salary chart for the Eagles is DT Fletcher Cox. He earns a base salary of $15 million and carries a total salary cap hit of $23.8 million with bonuses and incentives factored in. RT Lane Johnson is second with a total cap hit of $17.8 million, followed by TE Zach Ertz with a cap number of $12.7 million.
