Philadelphia is coming off a 4-12 season last year. The Eagles were also 4-12 against the spread and they hit the over 8 times during the season. Washington was 10-6 a year ago and 11-5 against the spread. The Redskins hit the over 9 times.

Trends show that the favorite has covered the spread in 5 straight games in this series and the road team is 9-3-1 against the spread in the last 13 meetings between these two.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Washington is the slight favorite at home, as the Redskins have odds of -3.5 points against the Eagles. The over/under total for the game has been set at 51.5 points (View Matchup). The opening odds for this game had Washington favored by 5 points. The spread never got higher than that and hit a low of 3 points before closing at Washington -3.5. The over/under total opened at 50.5 points and dipped down to 50 before climbing up to 51.5.

The Redskins had a breakout season a year ago thanks to the play of then-rookie Robert Griffin III at quarterback. He threw for 3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns while rushing for 815 yards and seven scores. Despite that, RG3 had a knee injury force him out of the playoff game and leave his status for this season opener tonight in question. Griffin didn’t play in the preseason, but will start today. He has second-year running back Alfred Morris back this season after Morris rushed for 1,613 yards and 13 touchdowns as a rookie. The Redskins may have their hands full with the Philadelphia offense tonight, as the Redskins allowed 377.7 yards per game, including 281.9 passing yards per game last season.

Philadelphia comes into this season with perhaps more buzz than any team, with a large part of that due to new head coach, Chip Kelly. The former Oregon coach hopes to bring his up-tempo, no-huddle offense to the NFL and will do so with Michael Vick as his quarterback. Vick threw for 2,362 yards and 12 touchdowns last season but wasn’t the starter throughout the year. The leash could be short on Vick if the offense struggles. Philadelphia lost receiver Jeremy Maclin during training camp, leaving their receiving options limited. The Eagles had one of the worst defenses in the league last year, allowing 27.8 points per game, which ranked third-worst in the NFL.

Bet on NFL Week 1 Odds

In terms of Injuries, Philadelphia tackle Dennis Kelly is out with a back injury while Washington receiver Leonard Hankerson and safety Brandon Meriweather are both questionable with knee injuries.

The Public Bets for this game are currently backing Washington, as the Redskins are getting 57% of the wagers with odds of -3.5 points against Philadelphia on Monday.
