The Eagles will be a popular NFL betting choice in this game considering they are making a serious push to the playoffs while the Redskins have fallen apart in recent weeks.
Online football betting numbers show that the Eagles have won six of the last ten meetings between the two teams. The Eagles are favored in NFL Week 16 odds but not by a large margin. That could be because they are only 4-6 against the online football betting pointspread in the last ten games against Washington. The Eagles have won four of the last five games at Washington as online football betting stats show. They are only 2-3 against the online football betting pointspread in those games.
Gamblers looking at the online football betting total should be aware that 8 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams have gone under. Four of the last five games at Washington have gone under the online football betting total.
Earlier this season the Redskins won at Philadelphia 23-17 as NFL betting stats show, so the Eagles will look to return the favor on Sunday. The Eagles have looked like a different team in NFL betting since Brian Westbrook got healthy. With a win here against the Redskins and a win next week against Dallas the Eagles could get into the playoffs. Washington needs a lot more help than just winning Sunday’s game to make the playoffs.
Washington has really struggled in recent weeks to score points as online football betting stats indicate. They have fallen near the bottom of the league in points scored as online football betting stats show. Their defense is still Top 10 according to NFL betting stats, but they are starting to spend too much time on the field. The Eagles have an offense and a defense that are both ranked in the Top 10 as online football betting numbers show.
