The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off one of their worst seasons in the past two decades. They finished the season at 4-11-1 and in fourth place in the NFC East. Due to their poor season, the team fired head coach Doug Pederson and replaced him with Nick Sirianni. The Eagles appear to be heading into a rebuild and it could be a while before they are back in contention.
So, what are the odds that they could get to and win the Super Bowl during the 2021-2022 season? Let’s dive into those odds featured at top PA sports betting sites.
The Eagles are +2800 to win the NFC next season. They have the second-worst odds to do so, only behind the Detroit Lions +5000. That’s not great company to keep. Perhaps of the biggest reason for the pessimism for the Eagles this season is their quarterback situation; the team traded Carson Wentz to the Colts on Feb. 18 for future draft picks. Combine that with an aging roster and no cap space and it’s not hard to see why the Eagles are in contention for the No. 1 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
The path for Philadelphia to surprise this season would be if its offensive line can stay healthy and the pass rush can still create pressure. Even if both of those things happened, the Eagles likely wouldn't compete with the best teams in the conference as they need to dramatically retool the roster over the next few years.
The only reason they might not be a bad bet to win the NFC at +2800 is because of the division they play in. The NFC East is the worst division in football, and all four teams have major issues at quarterback, including the Dallas Cowboys with Dak Prescott’s contract situation. It’s not unreasonable to think the Eagles could potentially steal the NFC East crown next season and host a playoff game.
But even if that were to happen, it’s hard to imagine them winning three straight games against the best teams in the conference.
If you feel bold, you can grab the Eagles at +6600 to win Super Bowl 56. Only a few teams have worse odds to hoist the Lombardi Trophy next season and four of those five teams reside in the AFC. Despite winning the Super Bowl in 2017, the Eagles haven’t had a 10+ win season since that year and are trending in the wrong direction as a franchise. The roster is likely to be gutted in free agency as they are projected to be $49 million over the cap. Combine that with a new head coach, quarterback issues and an aging offensive line and it’s not hard to see why their odds are so bad.
However, the odds might be intriguing at 66-1, given that there is still talent left over from their Super Bowl-winning roster. Remember, Super Bowl 55 champion Tampa Bay was 66-1 in February 2020.
Of course, the Buccaneers signed Tom Brady.
