4 Great Eagles Prop Bets You Should Back This NFL Season
The Philadelphia Eagles won the NFC East in 2019 before losing a heartbreaker to the Seahawks in the opening round of the NFC Playoffs. But Philly didn’t lose much since then and is poised to make a run at a fourth-straight postseason berth. There are a ton of NFL futures prop bets available on the Eagles for the 2020 NFL season, and we like these the best:
| Carson Wentz|
Over 3,924.5 Yards Passing
| Jalen Reagor|
Under 800.5 Yards Receiving
|Total Wins Under 9.5||-105 |
|Eagles to Make Playoffs||-213 |

Carson Wentz – Over 3,924.5 yards passing (-110)
Wentz has gotten a bad rap as an injury prone QB, but it’s more a case of bad timing with his injuries that have made them more notable. In his four seasons, Wentz has played a full 16 games twice, 13 once and 11 the other time.
His rookie year he played 16 games and looked like a rookie, still throwing for 3,782 yards but with 16 TDs to 14 INTs. Last year he tallied 16 and was just as aggressive but now also experienced. He had the exact same amount of pass attempts but threw for 4,039 yards, 27 TDs and just seven INTs – and that was with a offense undermined by a pile of injuries and poor output from the WRs.
Give him another year of experience and a fully stocked stable, and 4,000 yards seems highly attainable.
Jalen Reagor – Under 800.5 yards receiving (-141)
The Eagles used their first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft on Reagor, the speedster from TCU. He’ll immediately jump into a receiver situation that needs a boost of production. Last season, Carson’s top-two targets were tight end Zach Ertz … and backup tight end Dallas Goedert.
When everyone is healthy, there are a lot of mouths to feed. DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery are back following injury marred 2019 seasons. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside is competent off the bench and Miles Sanders proved his worth as a pass-catcher out of the backfield. Look for Reagor to be part of the mix but to finish short of this lofty number in Year One.

Total Wins – Under 9.5 (-105)
The Eagles went 9-7 last season, good enough to win the subpar NFC East and attain a playoff berth. The line points to 9-7 or 10-6, but the schedule is a tough one, with trips to San Francisco, Green Bay and Pittsburgh, and home showdowns against the Saints, Ravens, Seahawks and Rams. Philly will be formidable, but with a schedule to match.
A 9-7 mark still seems realistic, with a playoff berth to go with it. But that doesn’t win this prop.

Make Playoffs – Yes (-213)
There are at least nine teams realistically competing for a playoff berth in the NFC: The 49ers, Seahawks, Saints, Buccaneers, Vikings, Packers, Cowboys and Eagles, plus the Rams and maybe even the Bears and Falcons if things go well.
Philly has the benefit of playing the Giants and Redskins twice, but the out-of-conference schedule is brutal. Dallas should be stronger with a new coaching staff, and the Rams should bounce back from a disappointing 2019 one year removed from the Super Bowl.
The Eagles added CB Darius Slay which will be huge, but they still have questions at safety and linebacker. This isn’t much of a value pick in the NFL betting world, but with seven teams now going to the playoffs, Philly has the inside track to get one of them. Grab the bet at BetAmerica.
