Philadelphia Eagles: Betting odds 2007 football

 Strong favorite to win by betting odds, Philadelphia Eagles are on a way to another title, if they stay away from injuries.

Philadelphia Eagles: Betting odds 2007 football After a season filled with high and lows, the Philadelphia Eagles remain one of the favoritre football teams to reach the Super Bowl this season. During the 2006 season, we saw the Eagles start with 4-1, just to sputter to 5-4, when they lost quarterback Donovan McNabb to an injury during a 31-13 loss to Tennessee. But then QB Jeff Garcia took over and led the team to a playoff, proving a worthy substitution to McNabb. Unfortunately, Eagles' management sent free agent Jeff Garcia packing to Tampa Bay in hopes of a healthy McNabb return for the 2007 football season.

 The Philadelphia Eagles offense was the strong hand in the last season, running the ball and putting points on the board and drafting Kevin Kolb out of Houston with their first pick in the NFL draft caused an uproar. Although aggressive, the defense was the weaker side of the team ranking 26th last season. Offseason acquisition Takeo Spikes will help, but only if all the key players remain free of injuries would give the Philadelphia Eagles a chance at the 2008 Super Bowl. The preseason performance of the Eagles was somewhat weak, losing the last exhibition game against the New York Jets 13-11. Kevin Kolb completed 22-of-33 pass attempts for the Eagles in the loss, gaining 220 yards and connecting on a TD strike with Zac Collie.

 The bookmakers are not as generous tot he Eagles as one may predict. The betting odds on the Philadelphia Eagles remain far from making them a favorite this season for the Super Bowl, but strong contender for the NFC, mostly due to their preseason games. These are the betting odds on the Philadelphia Eagles, as published by the online bookmaker Bodog Sports (new window):
