For years, the Philadelphia Eagles have been in the mix to win the NFC East but this Eagles team is a far cry from the one that won the Super Bowl four years ago. Below, we look at the Philadelphia Eagles 2022 Super Bowl 56 odds, with NFL futures picks and predictions.
The Eagles had problems on both sides of the ball for all of 2020, scoring fewer than 20 points in eight games and allowing 20 or more points in 15 of 16 games. The end result was the firing of head coach Doug Pederson and parting ways with QB Carson Wentz, and WRs Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Marquise Goodwin.
Clearly, the Philly offense is in the hands of QB Jalen Hurts, who didn’t provide the anticipated spark to the offense in 2020, but brings upside with his dual-threat ability.

Eagles’ offseason recap
The Eagles weren’t overly active in free agency but made some key signings, including former Vikings defenders Anthony Harris and Eric Wilson, veteran QB Joe Flacco and RB Jordan Howard.
The biggest additions came in the draft with Alabama WR Devonta Smith and G Landon Dickerson. Philly dedicated almost the entirety of the final five rounds addressing defense in hopes of bouncing back in a division that still seems wide open.
Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl 56 and 2021 NFL futures picks
The only NFC team with worse Super Bowl odds (making it or winning it) is the Detroit Lions, which tells you the Eagles are getting little to no respect for their ability to bounce back and improve in 2021.
There is a reason for this belief, but the Over/Under of just 6.5 wins (in 17 games) is at least one game too low. In a division that still has four flawed teams, the OVER 6.5 wins (-150) is the best bet to make on the Eagles.
Given the lack of a dominant team in the division, a small wager on them to win the NFC East (+425) could be a flyer on getting a big payoff.
