Eagles Win Total
Sean Koerner, the Director of Predictive Analytics at Action, breaks down how he’s betting the Eagles’ win total.
The Eagles are one of the best-run teams in the NFL. I’ve always been impressed by their solid depth at nearly every position — a strength that will be even more important in 2020, making them a very resilient team in a season of so much uncertainty.
That said, two positions they’ve struggled to get consistent production from has been wide receiver and cornerback. They addressed the first by drafting first-rounder Jalen Reagor and the second by trading for Darius Slay. They’ll still need DeSean Jackson to stay healthy, and they’ll hope Alshon Jeffery can return from injury sometime in the first half of the season. But overall, they’ve upgraded both of those weak spots.
I’m in line with their win total, but there are pretty clear paths to the Eagles hitting their ceiling, which is why I nibbled on their Super Bowl odds at 19-1.
PICK: Eagles to win Super Bowl (+1900; no further)
