Eagles' 2015 NFL Season Odds
PHILADELPHIA, PA (The Spread) - After a hectic offseason, the Eagles' over/under for wins in 2015 has been set at 9.5 by oddsmakers.
Chip Kelly started off the offseason with a bang by trading LeSean McCoy to the Bills in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso. Kelly then shocked the masses again by trading his former starting quarterback Nick Foles and draft compensation for Rams' signal-caller Sam Bradford, who is coming off two ACL surgeries the past two seasons.
The Eagles also added veterans DeMarco Murray, Ray Mathews, Byron Maxwell, Walter Thurmond and Tim Tebow in free agency while re-signing Mark Sanchez, DeMeco Ryans and Brandon Graham. In the draft the team selected USC receiver Nelson Agholor with their first-round pick before nabbing Utah corner Eric Rowe in the scond round and Texas linebacker Jordan Hicks in the third.
Among the Eagles' offseason subtractions were Bradley Fletcher, Jeremy Maclin, Trent Cole, Todd Herremans, Nate Allen, Cary Williams and Evan Mathis, who was recently released after causing a small stir about his contract.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Eagles are 20/1 to win the 2016 Super Bowl and 10/1 to win the NFC Conference Championship. They're also 9/5 to win the NFC East Division, which gives them the next-best odds behind the Cowboys (5/4).
