The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off an encouraging 2019 season. Despite injuries holding their offense back for much of the year, they won the NFC East with a 9-7 regular-season record and held their own in a Wild Card matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, even though Carson Wentz was knocked out of that one.
There's reason to believe they can win the NFC East again in 2020, and early betting odds from FanDuel Sportsbook have Philly favored in five of their six divisional matchups in the year ahead.
Oddsmakers seem to be projecting the Eagles for a similar amount of success as they had last year. There are spreads and moneylines available for all 16 of their regular season matchups, and they're favored in nine.
Unsurprisingly, Philly is favored to go 2-0 against both the Washington Redskins and New York Giants, while the odds have them splitting the series with the Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles are 3-point favorites for their home game against Dallas, but 3-point underdogs on the road — suggesting these two are heading into 2020 at about even strength.
Against Washington and New York, they're favored by an average of 6.1 points, sitting at -4.0 or better in each of those four contests.
One of the more well-rounded teams in the NFL, Football Outsiders' DVOA metric had the Eagles ranked 11th in the NFL overall in 2019, checking in at No. 14 on offense and No. 12 on defense.
They've already shored up one of their biggest weaknesses by adding Darius Slay and Nickell Robey-Coleman, and they look set to improve on the offensive side of the ball by adding a playmaker in the first round of the draft.
