What are the Eagles Playoff Chances?
The only team in the NFL with just one loss, the Eagles playoff chances are 99.5%, which is the highest they can get without having clinched a playoff spot. Like most sportsbooks, DraftKings Sportsbook PA has removed the Eagles odds to make or miss the playoffs from their offerings.
The Eagles playoff chances above are calculated using implied probability based on odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook. The numbers you see when betting on these different outcomes (such as -20000 for Philly to make the playoffs, -1100 to win the NFC East, or +450 for the Philadelphia Eagles to win Super Bowl LVIII) are written in the American-style "moneyline." Using those numbers, you can calculate implied probability by dividing the odds by 1, plus the odds. So for a bet with the odds of +900 on the moneyline, the implied probability would be 10%.
The Philadelphia Eagles -1100 odds to win the NFC East calculates to a 91.6% chance of Philly earning a playoff spot by winning their division. Following their bounce back win against the lowly New York Giants, the Dallas Cowboys odds sit at +700, giving them a 12.5% chance at winning the NFC East. The Washington Commanders and New York Giants odds are currently off the board at DraftKings Sportsbook.
We'll also track how the Philadelphia Eagles playoff chances via implied probability compare to the New York Times Post Season Simulator and the ESPN Football Power Index (FPI). This number is a predictive rating system ESPN uses to measure a team's overall strength, using it to forecast both game-by-game and season-long results. It determines how many points an NFL team is better or worse than an average team. Basically, the Eagles' 6.5 ranking grades them as being 6.5 points better than an average NFL team, not factoring in home field advantage at Lincoln Financial Field. This metric does seem flawed to this writer. The Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys are listed higher than the Eagles. The Eagles defeated all of the aforementioned teams..
Finally, we have the New York Times Post Season Simulator giving the Eagles a greater than 99% chance at making the postseason. This aligns with the implied probability we calculated, sitting at 99.5%.
Philadelphia Eagles Week-by-Week Playoff Chances
Having the best record in the NFL has the Eagles playoff chances as high as they can get. They now have a 99.5% chance at making the postseason. They saw their Super Bowl odds shrink to +450, the shortest they've been since the market opened. Still, they trail the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs as far as Super Bowl odds are concerned.
NFL fans and especially bettors know, the implied probability is great but with potential injuries and other ups and downs, there are no guarantees until a seed is clinched or a team is mathematically eliminated. That is why we will update the Birds' chances to earn a playoff spot right here every week.
Philadelphia Eagles Schedule and Betting Lines
Here's a look at where the point spread and moneylines currently stand for the Eagles:
For the critics of the Philadelphia Eagles 2022 campaign that saw them cruise to a first-round bye, this schedule is a sight for sore eyes. Many pundits referred to last year's playoff run as fraudulent with a "cupcake schedule" due to their last-place finish in the season prior. Philly gets no such luxury this year. They already bested the team that eliminated them in the Super Bowl. They just beat the Buffalo Bills. Now they find themselves as underdogs to the the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys.
Prior to the 2023-2024 season the Philadelphia Eagles were ranked as having the toughest strength of schedule in the entire NFL sitting at .566. They are one of just two teams in the NFL with a strength of schedule above .500, the other being the Miami Dolphins, a team they defeated in Week 7.

Looking Ahead: Eagles Playoff Picture
Only three teams in NFL history have ever lost the Super Bowl and then followed up the next season by hoisting the Lombardi Trophy - the 1970 Dallas Cowboys, the undefeated Miami Dolphins in 1972 and the team the Eagles defeated in Super Bowl LII, the New England Patriots. That is the rarefied air the Eagles hope to be in at the end of the 2023-24 season.
To do so, they'll have to navigate the league's hardest schedule. There are still some huge tests remaining on the Eagles schedule. They passed the first test, holding the league-leading Miami Dolphins offense to just 10 points. Then, they won their first meeting against their division rival Dallas Cowboys.
They then defeated the Kansas City Chiefs on the road before coming home to beat the Buffalo Bills in overtime. All of that success has somehow led to the Eagles being underdogs at home against the San Francisco 49ers in week 13.
It's certainly a daunting road the Eagles must travel, so the wins they have strung together are important. So far, they have continued to stack those wins despite being in the midst of the toughest part of their schedule.
