The Philadelphia Eagles (+6000 to win Super Bowl 54) got a shot in the arm following their win over the New York Giants in Week 14. Now tied with the Dallas Cowboys for the best record in the NFC East (though the Cowboys own the tiebreaker for now), the Eagles eye to keep their momentum going as they face the Washington Redskins in Week 15. The Redskins played better than expected in Week 14’s matchup against Super Bowl contenders Green Bay Packers.

Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (6-7)
The Eagles averted a disaster last Monday, as they scored a 23-17 come-from-behind win in overtime at home over the New York Giants. After scoring just three points in the first half and allowing 17 to the Giants, the Eagles finally found their rhythm on both offense and defense in the second half to snatch a win. Carson Wentz had 325 passing yards and two touchdowns with zero interceptions on 33-of-50 completions. The Eagles are tending to a number of injuries right now. Nelson Agholor and Jordan Howard were both out in Week 14 while Alshon Jeffery wasn’t able to finish the game after sustaining a foot injury. However, running back Boston Scott showed he can cover part of the hole left by his hurt teammates when he paced the team with 59 rushing yards and a touchdown on 10 carries and also had 69 receiving yards on six catches. Wentz will be looking to torch the same Redskins’ defense he threw for 313 yards and three touchdowns against in a 32-27 home win back in Week 1.
The under is 6-4 in the Eagles’ last 10 games.
Betting on the Washington Redskins (3-10)
The Redskins put up an admirable effort in their 20-15 loss to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field over the weekend. There were moments in the game where the Redskins’ defense made life hard for future Hall of Famer quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ offense. Rodgers only went 18 for 28 for 195 passing yards and a touchdown while getting sacked four times for a loss of 28 yards. On offense, meanwhile, it appears that ageless wonder Adrian Peterson will be Washington’s main man again on the ground, as Derrius Guice reportedly suffered an MCL sprain that will cost him at least Week 15’s game against the Eagles. Peterson had 76 rushing yards and a touchdown on 20 carries against the Packers. Wide receiver Terry MacLaurin will also look to duplicate his breakout performance in Week 1’s loss to the Eagles in which he had 125 receiving yards and a touchdown on five receptions.
The Redskins are 2-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last three home games. They are also 3-2 ATS in their last five home games against the Eagles.
The Eagles win, 24-20.
