Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

Bet on the Eagles if you think Carson Wentz will return to 2017 form. But the sims still are going to rely heavily on 2018 stats where the Eagles were not nearly as good with Wentz. There are 4 teams who have 12/1, 7.7% odds to win the Super Bowl. Their 5.8% chance is #6 in the league which is not high enough to be a good bet. In simulations, they win the NFC 12.7% of the time and are not a good value at 5/1, 16.7%. Our projection is leaning on them to win under 10 games. The Eagles are averaging 9.6 wins per sim. At -220 the Eagles are a good value to make the playoffs with a 69.5% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 5/8, 61.5%. They win the division in 59.3% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #3 in the NFC.
