MNF Free Pick | Redskins at Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles are furious and for good cause, these guys are the reigning champions of football and they are a bummy 5-6, and it’s been a struggle to get that! Who really knows what happened to the Eagles but just for a moment let’s be the “armchair GM” and voice our opinion.
The Eagles were having a fantastic year last season with Carson Wentz and he won 11 games. Things were looking fantastic in Philly and surprising to say the least, after all, the Eagles opened up the 2017-18 season with 50/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl. After game 11, Wentz went down with a season ending knee injury and this was the end of the Eagles. Wrong! Nick Foles stepped in and got it done like no other backup has ever done, he won the Super Bowl!
Now the Eagles have a dilemma on their hands (it shouldn’t have been). Do they go with the man who won the Super Bowl, or do they go with their franchise guy? They went with their franchise guy and it has brought them to this point. In fairness, Foles did start the first two games, he was not very good, in fact, he was dreadful. It really is difficult to put a finger on the Eagles woes.
What happens tonight?
The Eagles are still struggling but did pick up the win last week, against the downtrodden Giants. The Redskins are barley breathing with two straight losses against Houston and Dallas.
It’s almost that time – Getting ready to bet the NFL Playoffs
These two are so evenly matched across the board that it’s incredibly difficult to look at numbers and say with any certainty who wins this thing. Will the Redskins lose three in a row?
Look at the numbers… Redskins on the left, Eagles on the right.

I went with Philadelphia last week as a 2.5-point road underdog against Jacksonville on the simple betting theory of going with the better all-around team. Preseason football is getting harder and harder to handicap with some starters remaining on the bench through the entire four-game schedule. Head coaches are less willing to take any risks Read More…
Sticking with the NFL on Saturday worked out for us, so let’s give it another try. San Francisco heads to Denver and both starting quarterbacks are expected to see some action. It probably won’t be for long, which will likely have an effect on our outcome. * Increase your bookie business 10 times, all while Read More…
I dipped into this series on Friday night, and although it didn’t come easy, I took the Giants +126 for the win. The Giants had a 7-2 lead going into the bottom of the 8th, only to allow 5 runs in the bottom of the 8th. Neither team scored in the 9th, both scored two Read More…
