Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl Odds 2022
The Eagles had a season to forget in 2020, which saw them going 4-11-1 in the worst division in football. Philadelphia decided to part ways with Carson Wentz at the end of the season and let Jalen Hurts take over. Despite an atrocious year, the Eagles do have some positive things going for them. For one, their offensive line should be relatively healthy again and will give Hurts some much-needed time in the pocket. Last year, Hurts was rushed, and he clearly did not have enough time to make reads, especially as a young quarterback trying to get his feet wet. Additionally, they drafted DeVonta Smith in the first round to better their weak receiving core. With that being said, the Eagles have two of the best tight ends in the NFL in Dallas Goedert and Zach Ertz. While many thought Ertz would be traded well before the season, we still have not seen that outcome. He may end up playing in Philadelphia this season. In the absolute best-case scenario, if this year resembles the 2020 season at all for the NFC East, then Philadelphia has a lottery ticket’s chance at making the playoffs.

This off-season marked the start of a new era as the Eagles shipped away Carson Wentz, who many thought a few years ago might be the future in Philadelphia. Thus, Jalen Hurts will take over under center and try to save a struggling franchise. The trade for Wentz did not yield much for the Eagles as they only brought back a 2021 third-rounder and a future conditional 2022 second-round pick that could become a first.
One of the other big moves that Philadelphia made was drafting DeVonta Smith. Smith had one of the greatest collegiate seasons in history last year for an excellent Alabama squad, and despite experts’ concerns with his size, there is no doubt of his abilities and speed. Hurts will need more than just Smith at the receiver position to succeed, though. Despite having great tight-ends, the Eagles need depth at the receiver position desperately.
An offseason change that hasn’t taken place yet was the expected departure of Zach Ertz. Ertz recently reported to training camp and may end up playing for the Eagles this year. The jury is out on whether or not Ertz has let bygones be bygones or if there is still a grievance with Philadelphia. Regardless, if he plays, this would be huge for the Eagles as he provides another weapon for Hurts. Between Smith, Goedert, and Ertz, Jalen Hurts would suddenly have enough weapons to potentially succeed in Philadelphia.
Eagles Odds Analysis
The Eagles have the third-worst odds to win the Super Bowl this year at +12500. Thus, winning the NFC East (+525) and making the playoffs (+285) are also quite low for the Eagles. The win total for Philadelphia is set at 6.5. Currently, the over odds are at -135, while the under is set at +115.
Of all the Eagles’ futures bets that exist, the most likely scenario is going with them winning less than 6.5 games. If you think about the teams in the NFC East, all of them have gotten significantly better, even if it is just crucial players recovering from injury. For instance, the Dallas Cowboys are getting a fully healthy Dak Prescott, and the New York Giants will be bringing back Saquon Barkley, both of whom had early season-ending injuries last year. You also can’t count out the Washington Football Team as a division contender as well. This puts the Eagles in a position where anything except last place in the NFC East should be considered a win. A bet that I would avoid at all costs would be the Eagles winning the Super Bowl. There are much better wagers that you can make, and even if you want to take a flier on a team with low odds, this team is not it.
Reasons Why Eagles Win Super Bowl
While I don’t necessarily think the Eagles have a chance to win the Super Bowl, they do have an outside chance to make the postseason if everything comes together perfectly. Despite having the third-worst odds to win the Super Bowl, they still play in the NFC East, considered the worst division in the NFL this year. If there is another year like last season, when the NFC East-winning Washington Football Team went 7-9, it is not out of the realm of possibility.
The Eagles O-line was riddled with injuries when both Brandon Brooks and Andre Dillard missed the entire season. Right tackle Lane Johnson also had a bad year compared to his usual standards. All of those catalysts in conjunction gave the Eagles a sub-par offensive line last year. However, this season the outlook is much more optimistic. They have an opportunity to be a Top 10 O-line if they stay healthy and have solid chemistry together.
The final catalyst that could see the Eagles having a successful year would be if Jalen Hurts had an MVP-type season. Hurts has only started four games in the NFL and went 1-3 in those games. However, he lacked offensive weapons and a healthy O-line to protect him. There’s not enough of a sample size to make a definite conclusion on Jalen’s upside as a starting NFL quarterback, but if somehow his upside was an MVP-caliber player, then the Eagles would have an outside chance at a playoff spot.
Reason Why Eagles Don’t Win Super Bowl
There are many reasons why the Philadelphia Eagles won’t win the Super Bowl. They do not have a good offense by any stretch of the imagination, as they ranked 25th last year in total yards per game. Hurts is still growing as an NFL quarterback and, therefore, doesn’t have the experience required to pull off a Super Bowl run with a team of this skill level. Until the Eagles have a much stronger receiving core and a much better defense, they will struggle to make the playoffs, let alone winning a Super Bowl. Currently, the NFL has the Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, Los Angeles Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and many other great teams. The Philadelphia Eagles are not going to be on anyone’s radar for the next several years.
