(The Spread) – After a disappointing 2011 season, optimism continues to grow around the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles

 

Andy Reid’s squad opened with 12/1 odds to win the 2013 Super Bowl but within the last week the Eagles’ odds have dropped to 10/1 and now 8/1. Their odds to win a NFC title have also dropped from 15/2 down to 5/1, which is where their odds to win their conference currently sit.

It’s unclear why the Eagles’ Super Bowl odds have dropped two full points in the last week, although maybe bettors are starting to see value in this Philadelphia squad. Michael Vick, LeSean “Shady” McCoy and DeSean Jackson all return to what should be a dangerous offense in 2012.

The Eagles are also coming off a successful draft, or what most would consider a successful draft. They traded up in the first round in order to select Mississippi State’s Fletcher Cox, who was arguably the best defensive tackle in the entire draft. They also landed undersized by highly productive Mychal Kendricks out of Cal in the second round, as well as a raw but talented pass rusher in Marshall’s Vinny Curry.

Had Georgia cornerback Brandon Boyin not broken his leg at this year’s Senior Bowl, it’s highly unlikely that he would have dropped all the way into the fourth round, which is where the Eagles selected him. And speaking of productive, Marvin McNutt caught 170 passes for 2,681 yards and 28 touchdowns in his career at Iowa. Not bad for a receiver the Eagles plucked in the sixth.

The one rain cloud over a bright offseason was the loss of left tackle Jason Peters, who will miss the entire 2012 season after rupturing his Achilles twice this offseason. But the Eagles did well to add Demetress Bell in free agency and as long as the former Bill stays healthy, he should be a solid addition to the Eagles’ offensive line.
