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 know what you are probably thinking. Wait a minute, why is he giving me another hockey game prediction? Isn’t he best at basketball? The answer is yes, but I simply give you hockey predictions when I feel strongly one way or the other. So that’s the thing, you know that if I’m writing a Read More…
I was tempted to bet the OVER in today’s NBA All-Star game, but at 312, I’ll stick to the NHL. There are 6 games on the NHL schedule today, with a couple big games that might have meaning come April when the final playoff seedings are out. I’m taking a side in the matchup in Read More…
The Nevada Wolf Pack are no longer looking for revenge against Wyoming, this team has been on the mountain top, down in the valley with a close one here and there and tonight’s game will not be close. It may be cold in Laramie, but inside that gym is the hot shooting from 6-7 forward, Read More…
