Eagles vs. Redskins Spread Prediction
The Philadelphia Eagles’ playoff hopes remain thin but they could stay in the wild card mix with a win tonight against the banged-up Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football. Will the Eagles cover tonight as the favorite?
379 Washington Redskins at 380 Philadelphia Eagles

Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Eagles are 6-point favorites to beat the Redskins. The total, meanwhile, sits at 45 points. As of this writing, 51% of the public betting tickets are on the Eagles to cover the point spread.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports LB Reuben Foster will likely be sidelined for the rest of the season. Foster won't appeal the league's decision to place him on the Commissioner Exempt List. He's likely looking at a minimum six-game suspension to open next year, but the Redskins will stash him until the legal process plays out.
Darren Sproles (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 13 against the Redskins. When asked if he'll play Monday, Sproles casually responded, "That's the plan." He also mentioned "we're going to see" what his eventual role will be. It's worth noting Sproles received all running back targets and 50% of Philly's red zone rushes in his only available three quarters this season. We still expect Josh Adams to handle the load as a confident RB2.
