NFC East Division Odds to Win
LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - Will the Eagles win the NFC East again this year or will the Cowboys, Giants or Redskins surprise?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Eagles are 8/5 favorites to win the NFC East Division, while the Cowboys and Giants are both 11/4, respectively. The Redskins, meanwhile, have the worst odds to win the division at 17/4. Washington is just two years removed from winning the division in RGIII's rookie season.
The Eagles currently have the best odds in the division to win the 2015 Super Bowl. While Philly is 22/1 to win next year's NFL title, the Cowboys and Giants are both 40/1, respectively, while the Redskins are 50/1 long shots. The Eagles are also 12/1 to win the NFC title in 2014-15, while the Cowboys and Giants are 25/1, respectively, and the Redskins are 28/1 long shots.
Thanks to Chip Kelly, the Eagles have one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL. Nick Foles is coming off a breakout campaign and the team added Darren Sproles this offseason. That said, the Eagles released DeSean Jackson, who signed with the Redskins, so the team is down one big weapon from a year ago. At least Jeremy Maclin returns after missing the entire 2013 season with an injury.
After adding Jackson, Washington could be a sleeper in the division provided that RGIII stays healthy. Their defense is still a huge question mark, but so is the Cowboys' D, which has one of the worst front sevens in football. The Giants, meanwhile, could be in store for a big rebound, but Eli Manning will need to have more protection if Big Blue is going to make noise in 2014.
