When using the odds table above, click the dropdown menu and select the type of bet you wish to make. 

Wagering on the point spread is when you wager on how many points a team will win or lose by. A “plus” sign in front of the spread is the underdog, and a “minus” sign is the favorite. The Eagles would need at least a seven-point win if you bet on Philadelphia to cover the point spread (-6.5). A spread bet on the Commanders would win if Washington wins the game or loses by six points or fewer. When there is no flat number like this one (-6.5) no push comes into play.

Betting the moneyline is simply betting on which particular team will win a game.

The total is the number of combined points the two teams will score. Bettors can choose to bet the over or under on how many total points will be scored in the game.

EAGLES VS. COMMANDERS WEATHER REPORT

The weather isn’t expected to have much of an impact on this matchup, as the temperature is expected to settle in at 78 degrees by kickoff. There is a small chance for light rain, though models are showing it may be clear by kickoff on Sunday. Even so, you should be wary of allowing the potential weather to impact your handicap. Games with lots of rain and snow usually drive down totals but doesn’t always mean it will go Under. Sportsbooks obviously adjust their lines based on weather, so it’s up to the bettor to decide if the book adjusted the line enough.

EAGLES VS. COMMANDERS BETTING INSIGHTS

 Why Eagles Can Cover The Spread

In last year’s two dates against Ron Rivera’s unit, Hurts played well throwing for 37-of-52 passing (71%), 510 yards (9.8 YPA), and 15/82/2 rushing. Hurts’ supporting cast is far improved this year which should lead to even more success. This is an eruption spot for Miles Sanders, who netted Weeks 1-2 touch counts of 15 and 20 and is averaging a career-high 5.9 yards per carry. The Commanders have allowed a league-high 7.5 yards per rush thus far in 2022. Washingtons secondary is prone to pass-coverage busts as well, allowing opponent WR lines of 6/117/0 (Christian Kirk), 9/116/2 (Amon-Ra St. Brown), in the first two games. The success of slot receivers Kirk and St. Brown against the Commanders forecasts productivity for A.J. Brown, who runs nearly a third of his routes inside. Philadelphia is 6-3-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last 10 games against Washington.

Why Commanders Can Cover The Spread

Carson Wentz leads the NFL in TD passes (7) and is averaging a career-best 7.5 yards per attempt. This game’s projected scoring environment should benefit Wentz and company, while Philly is visiting Washington on a short week following its MNF destruction of Minnesota. This road game for Philadelphia on a short week can set them up to potentially play a little sloppier. Curtis Samuel looks great so far in 2022 leading the Commanders in targets, catches (15), receiving yards (133), and first-down conversions (8) while handling five rushing attempts through two games.

With the Commanders using Samuel in so many different facets of the game, Darius Slay shadow coverage should not be a concern here. Logan Thomas played 73% of Washington’s Week 2 offensive snaps, turned five targets into 3/37/1 receiving, and in Week 3 faces an Eagles defense that always coughs up tight end production. This year, Philadelphia has surrendered the league’s sixth-most receptions to tight ends (11). 

Reasons To Bet The Over

The Eagles are off to a fast start already in 2022. After finishing top 12 in average play-clock seconds remaining in Week 1 (9.5), Philadelphia cranked the tempo even higher on Monday night (10 seconds, seventh fastest). Their no-huddle rate jumped from 19% to 26%. Eagles’ games average the second-most combined snaps (132.5) due to pace and efficiency. They’re pumping out the fourth-most yards per play (6.7) and sixth-most points per snap. 

Carson Wentz and the Washington offense is also off to a fast start. They played faster on Sunday in Detroit, ranking top 12 in average play clock remaining. With the addition of Jahan Dotson, alongside Terry McLaurin, Curtis Samuel, and Logan Thomas, they have a formidable pass-catching group to compete in games. Washington’s games average 132.5 combined plays (tied for second), they’ve produced the third most themselves (71), and they rank top 10 in points-per-snap, no-huddle rate, passing yards, and passing yards per attempt. 

Reasons To Bet The Under

With Washingtons inability to stop the run, paired with Philadelphia being more then comfortable with running more than their usually amount of running plays, can lead to this game playing slower than expected. The total has hit the under in four of Philadelphia’s last six games played in September. Additionally, the total has hit the under in five of Washington’s last six home games. We also know that Carson Wentz can struggle immensely on any given Sunday to move the ball down the field. 

Eagles vs. Commanders props: Matchups to watch

Miles Sanders vs. Commanders Front Seven

Sanders accumulated Weeks 1-2 touch counts of 15 and 20 and is averaging a career-high 5.9 yards per carry. With Philadelphia owning a top-five offensive line, look for Sanders to rack up carries in this game. Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott are role players clearly playing behind Sanders on the depth-chart. Sanders ran all over Washington last year, finishing the game with 131 yards rushing (7.3 YPC).

Miles Sanders rushing yards prop: Over/Under / ()

Terry McLaurin vs. Eagles Secondary

Samuel’s emergence has become a big problem for McLaurin, who will be likely to be shadowed by Darius Slay. McLaurin managed 2021 stat lines of 2/51/0 and 7/61/0 in last year’s Eagles games.

Terry McLaurin receiving yards prop: Over/Under / ()

FINAL THOUGHTS

The Eagles offense looks fluid to start to the year, while long-shot Jalen Hurts MVP bettors should be smiling. The only thing holding Philadelphia back from torching the Commanders would be their defense letting them down. Division games are always played close and contested, so look for Washington to cover the 6.5 here. Best of luck navigating Eagles Commanders odds.
