For a team that already has cliched a playoff spot with three games still left in the NFL season, the Philadelphia Eagles are being discussed very much as though they had zero chance of going deep into the playoffs.
That’s what happens to the reputation of a team mired in a three-game losing streak, including a couple of loses by blowout scores. The results have patrons of Pennsylvania sports betting on edge.
However, the scheduling gods finally have smiled on the Eagles with their last three opponents having a current combined record of 9-19. The Birds play the 5-9 Giants twice, at home on Christmas Day, and again in the last regular-season game on the road. In between, the Birds are at home against the 4-10 Arizona Cardinals.
With all that in mind, PennStakes.com — your source for PA sportsbook promo codes — looked at how resilient the Eagles have been when they’ve been caught up in a three-game losing streak over the last 10 seasons.
Eagles After 3-Game Losing Streak (Since 2012)
The good news for Eagles fans is that Philadelphia is 5-2 following a three-game losing streak over the last 10 years. In those seven games, Philadelphia has averaged 26.7 points and given up an average of 23.9 points.
Confidence in the Eagles has slipped at PA sportsbook apps but not by much.
For example, the Eagles are +850 to win the Super Bowl, which is tied for fourth with the Miami Dolphins at ESPN Bet Pennsylvania, behind the San Francisco 49ers (+200), Baltimore Ravens (+550) and the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs (+900).
