Philadelphia Eagles Odds To Win the Super Bowl

NFL News - August 9th, 2009 - Written by Ryan Smith

The Philadelphia eagles return to the 2009-2010 NFL football season, after making it all the way to the NFC championship game in 2008. The Philadelphia Eagles only won 9 games last season, but managed to make it to the playoffs with a win against the Cowboys in the last game of the season. During the off season, the Eagles re-signed quarterback Donovan McNabb to a three year extensions, solidifying the passing game for this season. It was a must to re-sign Donovan McNabb, the Eagles have passed the ball more than any other football team in the last three years. With Contract negotiations finalized concerning McNabb, the Eagles should be ready to make another run at the Playoffs this year.

Running back Brian Westbrook was rumored to not start the first few weeks of the regular season, but after recovering quickly from off season surgery, Westbrook is now scheduled to start the first game of the season. BetUS and BetED, two of the worlds most credited online sportsbooks have released odds for the eagles to win the Super Bowl. These sportsbooks must know Westbrook is healthy, because the Eagles odds to win the Super Bowl are set at 12:1. Those odds are up there with some of the best teams in all of the NFL. With Brian Westbrook running the ball, and a young core of new wide receivers to catch passes from McNabb, the Eagles should pull off more victories than just the 9 wins they accumulated in 2008.

The Eagles increased their talent level on the offensive side of the football, but it's the Eagles defense that will need to play better in 2009. The Eagles lost their heart and soul on defense, in Strong Safety Brian Dawkins, and replacing his passion and ability to find the football in the secondary, will be difficult for the eagles defense in 2009. The Eagles only allowed 251.1 yards per game last season, ranking among the top 5 teams in the League, and they also only allowed 18.2 points per game. Those numbers are likely to go down this season with Brian Dawkins not on the roster. Still the Eagles look to have one of the strongest all around football teams in the NFL this season.
