NFL kicks off today! Next, 2021 betting on Eagles Super Bowl picks and predictions. The Philadelphia Eagles finished last season with a 9-7 record, which was good enough to win the NFC East. However, they were eliminated in the Wild Card round by the Seattle Seahawks, bring an end to what they consider a disappointing season.
Even though they won the division last season, the Eagles aren’t getting a lot of love from oddsmakers, who gave them +2200 odds to win the Super Bowl.
Quarterback Carson Wentz played all 16 games last season after dealing with injury problems in the previous two seasons. He finished the year with 4,039 yards, 27 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.
They didn’t have consistency at the running back position, but Miles Sanders finished the season leading the team with 818 yards and three touchdowns.
The Eagles got some insurance in case Wentz get hurt again this season by selecting former Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts in the second round of the draft. They also re-signed backup quarterback Nate Sudfeld to give them depth at the position.

The Eagles also improved their receiving corps by selecting former TCU wideout Jalen Reagor with their first round pick.
Defensively, the Eagles gave up 22.1 points per game during the regular season. They parted ways with defensive leader Malcolm Jenkins, who wanted a new deal, but they brought in cornerback Darius Slay and drafted former Clemson safety K’Von Wallace.
With the Baltimore Ravens releasing Earl Thomas earlier this week, the Eagles could make a run for him to add more depth to their secondary.
The Eagles haven’t been the same team since they made their Super Bowl run a couple of years ago. Head coach Doug Pederson will have them ready to play, but they will likely win eight or nine games and finish second in the division.
