PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The biggest concern for most Eagles fans for the 2012 season concerns the health of starting quarterback Michael Vick. Having played all 16 games only once in his career, and suffering two injuries during the 2012 preseason, keeping Vick doesn’t seem like an easy job.
Well, someone thinks they’ll get it done.
According to odds courtesy of Bovada, an offshore sports book (@BovadaLV), the over/under for games started by Michael Vick in the 2012 season is 14. That means he’d have to start 15 games this season for you to win the bet.
14 starts would be a little high for Vick, in the six seasons that Michael Vick has begun the season the team’s starter, Michael Vick has averaged just under 13 starts per season.
In other prop bets offered by Bovada, Vick’s over/under for passing touchdowns is 22.5, passing yards is 3500, interceptions thrown is 13.5, rushing yards sit at 650.5, and rushing touchdowns at 4.5. Total rushing yards for LeSean McCoy is at 1100, receiving yards at 350.5, rushing and receiving touchdowns combined is at 14.5. Total receiving yards for DeSean Jackson is at 1000.5, and receiving touchdowns is at 6.5
On defense, total over/under for sacks for Trent Cole is 10.5, Fletcher Cox is 4, and Jason Babin is 10.5. Total over/under for Nnamdi Asomugha interceptions is 3, and they’ve got the same number for Dominique Rodgers Cromartie. Asomugha has had more than three interceptions just once in his career.
Finally, Andy Reid is the odds on favorite to return as coach in 2013, at -300 for yes, and +200 for no.
