NFL NFC East Sports Betting Preview
We've covered all of the AFC in our posts now we look to the NFC to see how these teams will fare over the course of this season. The Football Futures have been released, and, let me tell you, there are a lot of good bets in there. They come from the experts, BTB and Jesse, so click Buy Packages above if you want to get those. There are four MAX plays and one Double MAX and multiple other plays from the guys. These are just my thoughts, so feel free to fade or follow.
Philadelphia Eagles, 14-3 Last year, 1st in division
Last season ended with a bit of a dud. The Super Bowl was a really great game until the last two minutes or so. Don't get me wrong, I like the Chiefs and I made money on their victory, but the way it happened was a bit of a crappy way to go out and kind of eliminated some of the drama. The Eagles had a great year and fell just short of hoisting the Lombardi trophy. Will they be able to replicate that success? Their offensive line should still be one of the best in football which is a huge plus for them. They added D'Andre Swift, a very talented running back that should allow them to have more of a running game than just Jalen Hurts. I'm not convinced their defense will be as talented this year, but we will see. I don't typically like betting on the losers of the Super Bowl, and I really won't make an exception here. They should still win the division, and probably more than 11.5 games, but I will stay off.
Dallas Cowboys, 12-5, 2nd
As with most football teams, the entirety of their season seems to hinge on their quarterback. Dak Prescott has been very good for the Cowboys when he is on the field, but it really hasn't translated to much for them. They once had the best offensive line in football, but that's not the case any longer. It is still talented, but not quite as dominant as it was. The offense will look a bit different with Tony Pollard leading the charge out of the backfield - he was their best running back for a while now - and they've added Brandin Cooks. I don't know how much Cooks has left in the tank, but if he can stretch the field still, the Cowboys offense could be really good. The defense is aging a bit, but I do think they still should have one of the better ones in the NFC. You're going to pay juice if you think they'll win anything outside of 10 games. I think they are likely to go over 10.5 at +115.
New York Giants, 9-7-1, 3rd
I'd be lying if I said I like the Giants and thought their season was the start of something big. I'm not a believer. Maybe they will be awesome, but I just don't see it. They do seem to play hard for their coach, and they have some very nice pieces on their team, but they also were pretty lucky last season and still need up going just 9-7-1. They did win a playoff game too which was a big step for them. They also added Darren Waller and he could be a great weapon for Daniel Jones. Under 7.5 seems tight, so I'll pass on this because I think they are going to hover around that number.
Washington Commanders, 8-8-1, 4th
I don't really know what to make of the Commanders. They have a new quarterback in Sam Howell and I'd expect him to probably struggle this season. He probably will make a lot of mistakes and I'm guessing will through a lot of interceptions. He has Terry McLaurin whom I'm sure he will pepper with throws this season. I do feel like they have a pretty tough defense that doesn't give much up. Overall, I don't expect much to change here as they probably will play a lot of close, low-scoring games. This should be a pretty tough year for them and I don't know that Howell can lead them to seven wins. I'd take under 6.5.
